  • Reinterpreted Apollo-era seismic data from the Moon reveal a solid inner core and a fluid outer core. Despite recent insight regarding the history and current state of the Moon from satellite sensing and analyses of limited Apollo-era seismic data, deficiencies remain in our understanding of the deep lunar interior. We reanalyzed Apollo lunar seismograms using array-processing methods to search for the presence of reflected and converted seismic energy from the core. Our results suggest the… CONTINUE READING
