[Lroc Site ~ Image Introduction] "On 10 June 2011 the LRO spacecraft slewed 65° to the west, allowing the LROC NACs to capture this dramatic sunrise view of Tycho crater. A very popular target with amateur astronomers, Tycho is located at 43.37°S, 348.68°E, and is ~82 km (51 miles) in diameter. The summit of the central peak is 2 km (6562 ft) above the crater floor, and the crater floor is about 4700 m (15,420 ft) below the rim. Many "clasts" ranging in size from 10 meters to 100s of meters are exposed in the central peak slopes. Were these distinctive outcrops formed as a result of crushing and deformation of the target rock as the peak grew? Or do they represent preexisting rock layers that were brought intact to the surface? Imagine future geologists carefully making their way across these steep slopes, sampling a diversity of rocks brought up from depth" Image Credit(s) : NASA / GSFC / Arizona State University / Neal Spence 2019 Source Link : <a href="http://lroc.sese.asu.edu/posts/384" rel="noreferrer nofollow">lroc.sese.asu.edu/posts/384</a> Download this image here : https://www.flickr.com/photos/terraform-mars/49485940018 I can imagine these future Geologists, dumb founded, coming to the conclusion that the Moon is an Archealogical goldmine, The reality that humans (And others) had been there in the Distant Past? ( Are these the images showing us Much More than first meets the eye - Speculatively Speaking pf course!............ ) My personal thoughts here, Obviously a little out there in theory compared to the "Official Story" that was put out to the world ............
