accept the moon's early geological evolution. 'The compositional map that will come out of M3 will have wonderful data on geological formation of the moon,' the standard said. Researchers said the relative abundance of magnesium and iron in lunar rocks could help confirm whether the moon was covered by a molten, magma ocean early on in its history. Iron and magnesium will also attest melting of the moon, if it happened and how it formed later. This metallic element has been found in lunar meteorites, but scientists know little about its admeasurement in the lunar crust."
