Possible tectonic activity detected on the Moon

Tectonic activity has been detected on the moon by researchers who have discovered a system of moving ridges topped with boulders on its near side.

"There's this assumption that the moon is long dead, but we keep finding that that's not the case," said Professor Peter Schultz at Rhode Island's Brown University.

"It appears that the moon may still be creaking and cracking - potentially in the present day - and we can see the evidence on these ridges," explained Professor Schultz who co-authored a study published in the journal Geology.
