When digging in the Moon's surface during the Apollo program, astronauts were doing more than digging for sediments. They were traveling in time. Rocks returned by Apollo contain vital
clues about how Earth and Moon were formed, the impact "bombing" intensity and their variation over time, and even the history of the Sun. Most of these data, are the essential story of our planet can not be learned by studying rocks on Earth because our planet is geologically active .. so clues were lost billions of years due to the formation of mountains, volcanism, weather and erosion.
