What's Actually Under The Moon's Surface, According To NASA
Like Earth, the Moon also has a crust, mantle, and core.
its center is made of iron and nickel, making it our solar system's second densest moon
The solid inner core of our Moon is 480 kilometers in diameter, and the outer core of molten liquid iron
It is small compared to most other celestial bodies that typically have cores that are half their overall diameter,
The mantle is about 839 miles wide, while the crust is only 31 miles.
The resulting lava flows helped to form the vast plains easily viewed through a telescope
These different layers of diverse materials classify the Moon as a "differentiated world."
