Far Side of the Moon

Here's a video just uploaded for Sixty Symbols about one of my favourite subjects... The Moon.

Professor Mike Merrifield discusses a recent paper in Nature which may explain why the Moon's relatively smooth on it's earth-facing side... yet quite mountainous on its far side.

They really look like two different objects and I suspect many people wouldn't recognise the Moon if shown a picture of its far side.
