Shapes of Craters

← This comparative study of the shapes of lunar craters help scientists understand how the surface evolves with time. Each crater is unique in its own way, and over geologic time, will change in shape. LRO examines the shapes of many craters to help estimate the age of these craters based simply on their topography.
