    “NASA probes that mapped the Moon’s gravitational field before being intentionally crashed on its surface last December.”
    Thereby rendering the newly created maps obsolete.

    What’s the scale?  The image on the NASA site has no legend either.  The gradient could be anywhere from a millionth to a tenth for all we know.

    Gravity! “How does that work?”
    That’s not gravity, it’s acne.  Ask any teenager.

    My father was a navigator on the earliest nuclear subs.  They had to constantly calibrate their clocks and computers for where there were on the Earth because when you pass near certain mineral deposits in the ocean floor, you experience minor gravity fluctuations that can affect even the way time passes as measured by atomic clocks.
