Let’s take a moment to go back in time, more precisely to 4.5 billion years ago to try and understand the evolutions of our natural satellite: the Moon.

This video is the result of the programme Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, launched 4 years ago by NASA. A space probe studied from every conceivable angle all aspects of the Moon. All the information was analysed and summarised by scientists in order to give us a simplified version of the Moon’s history and its evolution.

We now know a little more about its shape and its impressive craters that make it up.
