Thrust faults on the moon

It's nice that there is always something new to be learnt: the moon is covered with quite a lot of thrust faults, some of which could be “relatively young” (approx. 800 to 1000 million years). They are probably a result of a slight shrinking of the moon due to cooling.

I've found this at Bad Astronomy, who has a nice post about it.
