Researchers identify 280 new craters on the Moon

Professor Will Featherstone, Dr Christian Hirt and Associate Professor Michael Kuhn of Curtin’s Institute for Geoscience Research received Australian Research Council grants to use satellite-collected gravity and elevation data to develop an ultra-high resolution gravity map of Earth.

Curiosity taking over, the team then applied these techniques to the Moon, identifying 280 lunar craters never mapped before, 66 of those categorised as distinctly visible from both a gravity and topographic perspective.
