The Early Lunar Impact Rate
- We can combine all that I talked about to get an impact rate on the Moon.
- NOTE! We really do not know these numbers very well yet.
- Indeed, a couple I simply invented.
- I believe we can get reasonable numbers with a lot more work.
- Have said this, we get:
- We predict roughly a bimodal distribution.
- So, some basins may be associated with leftover planetesimals.
- While, the late basins must be due to the outer Solar System.
