Shrinking Moon May Be Generating Moonquakes

The Moon is shrinking as its interior cools, causing the brittle surface
crust to break as the Moon shrinks, forming faults where one section of
crust is pushed up over a neighboring part. A new analysis gives the first
evidence that these faults are still active and likely producing moonquakes
today.
