Large space rock hits here on Earth correspond to asteroid collisions on the moon millions of years ago.
taking into account the enormous impact that killed out the nonavian dinosaurs.
The discovery shows that significant impacts during Earth's antiquity were not singular occurrences. Instead,
Several minor hits both here and on the moon followed these asteroid collisions.
Its surface is covered in more than 9,000 craters that space rock collisions have created behind.
Astronomers may be able to better grasp the inner solar system's dynamics as a result of the research.
and assist in estimating the probability that our planet may be hit in the future by possibly catastrophic big space objects.
