Colonising The Moon Just Got A Lot More Dangerous

Bad news, would-be lunar colonists: That dusty, airless space rock you dream of escaping to is apparently swarming with deadly projectiles.

Mysterious Moon Scars Could Rewrite Earth's History

Four billion years ago, an endless barrage of space rock pummelled the surface of the Earth and the Moon, in a period known as the Late Heavy Bombardment.
