The whole of the Moon: a journey to the center of our closest neighbor

The Lunar Interior

We know many things about our closest neighbor, the Moon.  Yet, its deepest part, close to the center, remains not well known.  In this presentation, I will give a brief overview of what we know about the Moon and its interior and how this information is obtained.  I will also show examples of the work that we do in my research group, where we use observations on the rotation of the Moon as a way to gather information about its deep interior.
