The border structures are shown using gravity gradients calculated with data from NASA's Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) mission. These gravity anomalies are interpreted as ancient lava-flooded rift zones buried beneath the volcanic plains (or maria) on the nearside of the Moon.Gravity Gradients Frame Oceanus ProcellarumPhotojournal: PIA18822Image Credit: NASA/Colorado School of Mines/MIT/GSFC/Scientific Visualization StudioPublished: July 9, 2018
