USGS Releases First-Ever Comprehensive Geologic Map of the Moon

Orthographic projections of the Unified Geologic Map of the Moon showing
the geology of the Moon’s near side (left) and far side (right) with
shaded topography from the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA). This
geologic map is a synthesis of six Apollo-era regional geologic maps,
updated based on data from recent satellite missions. It will serve as a
reference for lunar science and future human missions to the
Moon. Credit: NASA/GSFC/USGS
