The surface of the Moon records the early Solar System geological processes, the evidence of which has been long destroyed on Earth. In this regard, returned samples (e.g. those brought by the Apollo mission) and meteorites serve as invaluable materials to understand the origin and evolution of planetary crusts, and how they have been shaped by early geological processes: magmatism and meteorite impacts. The earliest lunar crust was shaped by the impacts that collided with the Moon and formed large basins, still visible on its surface. In our studies we specialize in combining geochemical and microstructural techniques to resolve the timing of the formation of these oldest impact basins. Here we report on our research highlights and present the future goals that will be explored during the Rita Levi Montalcini fellowship project to be carried out at the University of Trieste.
