Chandrayaan-2: ISRO Releases Pictures of Impact Craters on Moon

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has released fresh pictures of impact craters on the moon surface taken by its Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter.

According to ISRO, the Moon has been continuously bombarded by meteorites, asteroids, and comets since its formation.



The study of the nature, size, distribution, and composition of impact craters and associated ejecta features reveal valuable information about the origin and evolution of craters.
