Constraining the bombardment history of the Moon with a set of Apollo 14, 16 and 17 impact melt rocks

Haber, Thomas

One of the most important questions in lunar science is whether there was a lunar cataclysm – a sudden increase in the impactor flux around 3.9 Ga. The absolute ages of basin-scale impacts are the key to answering this question. Crystalline impact melt rocks from the Apollo landing sites can hold vital information about the lunar cataclysm, as they were potentially produced by such basin-scale impacts.
