Corsair is here welcome to my new video . A new study has revealed that our lunar neighbor is getting smaller and experiences strong ‘moonquakes’. According to the research, the Moon has shrunk by approximately 50 meters over the last several hundred million years due to the gradual, ongoing cooling of its interior. This, in turn, has made it slightly wrinkled which has created thrust faults and caused sections of the crust to push up against other sections producing moonquakes. These lunar quakes are surprising strong – measuring up to five on the Richter scale. analysis gives the first evidence that these faults are still active and likely producing moonquakes today as the Moon continues to gradually cool and shrink
