Meteorite Northeast Africa 003-A - a unique evidence of late volcanic activity on Moon

February 4, 2007

The research team constituted of Jakub Haloda (CGS), Patricie Týcová (CGS), Pavel Gabzdyl (FS MU Brno), Vera A. Fernandes (University of Manchester), Randy L. Korotev (Washington University, Saint Louis) and Jan Košler (University of Bergen) succeeded in determination of the origin, age and genesis of probably the youngest known luna rock - the lunar meteorite Northeast Africa 003-A. The meteorite originates very probably from the SE rim of the See of rains - a region of closing phases of volcanic activity on the Moon.
