The geology of the Moon (sometimes called selenology, although the latter term can refer more generally to "lunar science") is quite different from that of Moon lacks a true atmosphere, which eliminates erosion due to weather; it does not have any known form of plate tectonics, it has a lower gravity, and because of its small size, it cooled more rapidly. trometer (GRS) on Apollo 15 and 16 spacecraft (Metzger et al., ).

The consequence is that the Moon does not have an atmosphere, a hydrosphere (the Moon is totally dry), a biosphere (the Moon is totally life-less), a magnetosphere, and any tectonic force. Pristine rocks on the exposed surface of the Moon are principally anorthositic and basaltic, but those on the Earth are granitic (discounting suboceanic rocks).Cited by: 3. o Korotev R. L.

Most of the knowledge about the lunar interior has come from the Apollo missions and from robotic spacecraft, including Galileo, Clementine, and Lunar Prospector, which observed the Moon in the ing all available data, scientists have created a picture of the Moon as a layered body comprising a low-density crust, which ranges from 60 to.
