Our Cooling and Shrinking Moon

You would think that if the solar system was several zillion Darwin years old, things would have settled down. Instead, we have planets and moons showing signs of youth. On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 landed on the moon and left behind some equipment (as did other missions). Seismomaeters on the moon detected quakes.

Secular scientists were shaken by the data and unable to explain it. The moon should not have any tectonic activity, but yee yaw boy howdy, it's there! This also indicates that  the moon is cooling, which it "should be" long cold according to secular views. Yet more evidence that Earth and the rest of the solar system were created recently.
Scientists have concluded that our moon is probably still in the process of slightly shrinking as it cools.
Photographs from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) showed embankments called scarps on the moon’s surface. These scarps are caused by a slight contraction of the moon’s crust as it cools. The moon’s cooling creates thrust faults which push up small sections of the surface, forming scarps. 
Because these scarps sometimes distort small craters when they form, scientists inferred that the scarps formed in the relatively recent past. This is because larger meteorite impacts eventually deface or destroy smaller craters. Since these smaller craters had not yet been defaced by more recent large impacts, we know these small craters are quite young. And since the scarps distorted these young craters as the scarps formed, the scarps have to be even younger than the small craters.
To read the rest, blast off for "Moon Is Unexpectedly Still Cooling and Shrinking".
