Project Description

Studies of lunar craters and the rays extending from them can relay a great deal about the geological history of the moon and other airless bodies. This knowledge can better our understanding of the details of Earth’s formation and geological evolution. This project is an analysis of the factors involved in the shape and appearance of ejecta blankets (impact crater ray extensions) on the moon.
