USGS said it’s designed to serve as “the definitive blueprint” for lunar science. The entire moon is pockmarked with craters of every size, from microscopic pits to basins hundreds of miles in diameter.

The largest is the South Pole-Aitken Basin, which is about 1, miles (2, kilometers) across. Objects (asteroids, meteoroids, and comets) that struck the moon — very long ago, for the most part — caused these [ ].
