hi, Paul...

it's an interesting revelation that demonstrates the power of LRO's

camera. but some of the write-ups are not getting it right (e.g.
the
New Scientist story claims "A new count of the moon?s craters has turned up 33 per cent more than predicted." sheesh!)

if you want some context, including interviews with specialists beyond the press release, I recommend my S&T colleague Camille Carlisle's write-up here: https://is.gd/LxmxoZ


clear skies,
Kelly
