WASHINGTON, Oct. 14 (UPI) -- The Earth's moon, pummeled by scores of meteoroids every day, will have a new surface after some 81,000 years, much sooner than earlier predictions, NASA said.
New observations from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft found "small surface changes that are transforming the surface much faster than previously thought," scientist Emerson Spearer, of Arizona State University, said. The resurfacing also means landmarks will be destroyed.
