Submitted by derGoldstein
derGoldstein (1494129) writes "From DiscoveryNews: "Scientists have found evidence of volcanoes on the far side of the moon.
The new discovery, reported in the journal Nature Geoscience is a rare example of volcanism on the lunar surface not associated with asteroid, meteor or comet impact events. ... They focused on an area containing numerous domes, some more than six kilometers high.
The domes featured steeply sloping sides which Jolliff and colleagues interpret as, "volcanic in origin and formed from viscous lava." ""
