Our Lightning-Scarred Moon – The Evidence Grows | Space News

A striking example of so-called settled science which was settled prematurely is the question of how the moon got its craters. As we entered the Space Age, the debate among geologists and astronomers only considered two hypotheses — impacts, and volcanism. After Apollo astronauts returned lunar samples to Earth, analysis revealed a tremendous portion of the material was composed of shocked and welded minerals.

Thus, the impact origin of lunar craters became the consensus scientific theory, and remains so today. Of course, like so much settled science, the dilemma was settled without the successful resolution of countless anomalies.

In this episode, we explore the growing scientific evidence that interplanetary lightning bolts carved the lunar surface.
