Ancient crater could hold clues about moon’s mantle

Researchers from Brown University have found evidence of diverse mineralogy in the moon’s South Pole Aitken basin, a giant crater left by an impact 4 billion years ago. The findings could mean that some minerals dug up during that ancient impact remain intact within the basin. If that’s true, then the basin could hold vital clues about the makeup of the moon’s mantle.
