This is a genuine question. Doing basic searches online, I came to the conclusion that there are around 300,000 craters on the moon. If these craters
are in fact meteor hits, given the estimate that the Moon is 4.3bn years old, does this calculate to around every 14 years.
The Earth gets hit almost daily (and is reported) by as much as a golf ball... The Moon is 1/4 the size of the Earth, why do we not hear as much about
the moon being hit than we do the Earth?
There's no particular purpose to this thread hence the category, but surely considering the state of many planets, and the amount the Moon has been
hit, we should take a leaf out of 'it's' book.
