  2. 2. Contents  What caused this ?  What Quran says ?  What Prophet Muhammad saww said?  What the science says?
  3. 3. The Lunar Surface What caused this long crack on the moon??
  4. 4. Lunar Surface  In many places the lunar surface is broken and a portion is down dropped, forming trench like features known as rimae or rilles.
  5. 5. Lunar Rille/Rimae A Lunar Rille Explanation:  Discovered 200 years ago with a small telescope  What could cause a long indentation on the Moon? Photo Credit: Apollo 10, NASA Three types of rilles are now recognized:    Sinuous rilles – these have many meandering curves, Arcuate rilles – these form sweeping arcs. Straight rilles -- like Ariadaeus Rille pictured left.
  6. 6. Ariadaeus Rille
  7. 7. Ariadaeus Rille
  8. 8. Ariadaeus Rille So what caused these Rilles?
  9. 9. Ariadaeus Rille  This linear rille called Ariadaeus Rille was photographed by the Apollo 10 crew in 1969 during their historic approach to only 14-kilometers above the lunar surface.  Ariadaeus Rille is over 300 km in length; a portion of the central section of the rille about 120 km in length is pictured here  A linear section of the crust is dropped down along parallel faults or breaks in the crust to form a graben or fault trough.  The faulting must be relatively young because so few craters appear to be younger than the faults, and because the edges of the trough appear to be crisp and little affected by slumping and other mass wasting.

  13. 13. What Science says? Cause of Rilles?     Science is NOT YET SURE! Sinuous rilles are now thought to be remnants of ancient lava flows, The origins of arcuate and linear rilles –like the Ariadaeous rilles are still being researched See topic of research.
  14. 14. Will you wait for science? Or will you believe in Allah’s Words?
