A little humor in the title but serious science - the Moon is shrinking due to heat loss as is explained in this article.
The findings are based on the study of 12,000 photographs taken by Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) - the spacecraft that continues to rewrite what we know about the Moon - showing new wrinkle features in the northern part of the Moon known as Mare Frigoris.
|Scientists have discovered these wrinkle ridges in a region of the Moon called Mare Frigoris. These ridges add to evidence that the Moon has an actively changing surface. This image was taken by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO).|
The shrinking Moon also is thought to have created "moonquakes" that shaped the Moon's surface, especially in Taurus-Littrow Valley where Apollo 17 astronauts Gene Cernan and Harrison Schmidt (the only geologist to to the Moon so far).

The more we learn about the Moon the more amazing a place it becomes.
