What kind of rock is the moon?

Topics: ScienceAstronomyMoon (Earth's)

Answer

Outside the core is the largest region of the Moon, called the mantle. The lunar mantle extends up to a distance of only 50 km below the surface of the Moon. Scientists believe that the mantle of the Moon is largely composed of the minerals olivine, orthopyroxene and clinopyroxene. It's also believed to be more iron-rich than the Earth's mantle.
