Maria in the Moon
About this deal
All of the other lunar maria are named for either sea features, sea attributes, or states of mind. Sea Attributes Since many mare basalts fill low-lying impact basins, it was once assumed that the impact event itself somehow caused the volcanic eruption. Note: current data in fact may not preclude this, although the timing and length of mare volcanism in a number of basins cast some doubt on it. Initial mare volcanism generally seems to have begun within 100 million years of basin formation.  Although these authors felt that 100 million years was sufficiently long that a correlation between impact and volcanism seemed unlikely, there are problems with this argument. [ citation needed] The authors also point out that the oldest and deepest basalts in each basin are likely buried and inaccessible, leading to a sampling bias. a b Frankel, Charles (2005).

Maria in the Moon - Kindle edition by Beech, Louise
Dark, poignant and deeply moving, Maria in the Moon is an examination of the nature of memory and truth, and the defences we build to protect ourselves, when we can no longer hide… G. Jeffrey Taylor (April 30, 2006). "Finding Basalt Chips from Distant Maria". Planetary Science Research Discoveries. Unlike most of the other lunar seas, Mare Crisium is an isolated oval that doesn’t merge with others. It’s a large impact basin with visible walls in several places found to the northeast of Mare Tranquillitatis. With an area of 180,000km2, it's around the same size as England. Mare FecunditatisMons Rümker is a smaller complex similar in appearance to the Marius Hills.  It comprises a plateau with an area of roughly 2,000km 2 (770sqmi) and rises 200 to 1,300m (660 to 4,270ft) above the surrounding surface. Three main basalt units ranging in age from 3.51 to 3.71 billion years have been identified at Mons Rümker, although the youngest volcanic features may be steep-sided domes on the plateau surface as they show indications of having been active until the Eratosthenian. More than 20 domes overlie the plateau and are the most prominent volcanic landforms of Mons Rümker.

Achingly, wonderfully, brilliant and totally compelling - 'Maria In The Moon' made me laugh, made me cry, made me think and above all made me made me care deeply for the main character ..what more can you ask of an author?

In reality, Mare Smythii is circular, but it is so near the lunar limb that from Earth it appears elliptical. In fact, some of the mare curves around onto the far side. The craters within the mare appear to have a large number of fractured floors, most likely caused by lava rising up from underneath. Mare Spumansa b c d "Mare Imbrium".

Made famous as the location where Neil Armstrong took ‘one small step for man’ during the Apollo 11 landing, Mare Tranquillitatis is a very flat region, with only 500m elevation difference between the highest and lowest points in the basin.
Maria in the Moon by Louise Beech: a stirring novel
Marie In The Moon is one of the most haunting and compelling books I’ve read in a long time, it’s full of dark humour but also filled with warmth, this novel evoked so many emotion I laughed, I cried and then I cried some more, this is a huge testament to the author’s powerful writing. Dark and deeply moving this novel is one book that’s going to stay with me for a long time, and I’m sure I will often think of Catherine’s journey and the horrors she endured. I did not like the ending. That last twist (the only twist really) was completely unnecessary. I'm not a writer nor do I claim to be but I think the resolution here could of been done better. Not every book needs to have a twist ending. I know all of this sounds negative but I honestly think Louise Beech writes beautifully. This is simply a case of a book not being a good fit for me. 2.5 stars!Every once in a blue moon (excuse the pun) a book comes along that blows me away, Marie In The Moon has left me with a serious book hangover not a common occurrence might I add. Marie In The Moon is without doubt Louise Beech best book yet I never thought I would say that, as I adored The Mountain In My Shoe, but oh my Maria In The Moon is something else, beautifully written, it’s a powerful and a emotive novel that will pull at the most hardened heartstrings. I seen a book quote which pretty much sums up my feelings for this novel ” some books you read. Some books you enjoy. But some books just swallow you up heart and soul”. By studying topographical features of the lunar landscape such as the highlands, maria and craters, astronomers have been able to piece together a history of the Moon as it formed and evolved over billions of years.
