Researchers: The Moon Is Older Than We Thought

Researchers are re-examining these artifacts and new evidence shows the Moon may be older than we originally thought – about 100 Million years older. Based on new methods, these scientists believe the Moon may be 4.51 Billion years old, making it only about 50 Million years younger than our solar system.
