This is odd, how can this hundred million year old boulder nine meters in diameter roll, and maybe still rolling?


A casual glance might suggest that it happened last week, or even that its rolling might resume at any moment.





Nasa has shared two amazing new photos of what appears to demonstrate strong gravity on the moon


Didn't know that there was such high gravity on the moon?

Could it be that something with more mass past the moon? or can we officially call this boulder one of (The rolling stones)

Update: I did a quick research but it seems that this is not the only boulder that started to roll look all the way up and tell me what you see , I guess the whole band is there.....



Why do some of these boulders change course....?

That's one hell of a hamster ball....would like to see that moon hamster for sure...


I haven't a clue how that track got there. It's an amazing photo, TY for posting.

as far as i'm aware it isn't?

Hypothesis: The rolling my be the result of some sort of seismic activity or ground movement from a meteor impact in some adjacent area. The ground shakes and the round rock, perhpas restin on slight incline, disloges and rolls.

Don't believe everything you read.

I'd say that source is not very good.

We know the moon has about 1/6 the Earth's gravity, though there are small fluctuations in it just like you would weigh a little bit more on Earth if you stood at the south pole.

The moon's gravity is not that high and this photo certainly doesn't prove the moon has "high gravity" whatever that's supposed to mean.

And cannot die or be harmed by conventional means so he could def survive on the moon..

So, you've got a hundred-million year old boulder perched on a hillside.

Ten million years ago, a meteorite impact 50 miles away shook the ground, which dislodged the boulder and sent it rolling down the hill, where it came to a stop.

There's no wind or rain to obscure the track the boulder made, so it's still there.

We see these things all over the Moon. IIRC, the Apollo 17 crew examined one of these boulders in the Taurus-Littrow Valley.

No big mystery, as such - but still pretty dang neat!

Well it has 'Rolled' a long way, a very long way, it has also passed over a crater and it is apparently not perfectly round either... so i don't think it's moved due to an impact nearby....

Anyone seen that 'Apollo' movie? maybe it grew legs and walked there

Mick isnt happy about this
ontopic it looks like something put it in motion from the moon surface as if it somewhat bounced. I say bounced because of the grooves in the line made not being constant but like in and out of the surface movements. Somebodies telling us down here to look

In relation to an impact that caused movement of this larger bouulder... Why are not the smaller rocks moved near the same area I see a few smaller "rocks"
any clues? Just noticed to the lower right I do see another seemed like movement with little boulders and there are other lines also near lower right corner? Like dancing stones.

Could not the crator impact occur after the boulder rolled.

Siesmic activity?? I dont know, maybe, but the moon doesnt rotate, and i think the core is cool, which would suggest No activity, because how do plates float on a solid core, strange to say the least, must be tied into gravity of another celestial body

Wow that is a monster sized boulder, it does make one wonder in relative distance do to magnification I want to know how big this is in comparable size if its able to be seen from still a hearty distance???

I can see it now somewhere on ats there is a dude with a tinfoil hat on freaking out cause this has got to be proof that the moon Martians or the what was it oh yes the rock alien that was looking at us....... Ha ha ha hhhaa ha ha lol Sorry I couldn't resist lol.

Just looked at the pic, really closeley, you can see other smaller boulders in this picture at the very bottom right, which looks like other tracks left by the same occurance.
