The origin of this event is currently being investigated.”

Tremors detected on the Moon by seismometers carried by NASA’s Apollo program, It provided valuable data on the formation of the Moon. Interpreting this information (captured between 1969 and 1977), scientists suggested that the Moon has an inner core about 500 kilometers in diameter, which is much less dense than Earth’s core. New data obtained by the Indian mission could help scientists better understand what is happening beneath the surface of the moon.
