Some of the larger craters on the Moon have central peaks. Central peaks are thought
to be due to rebound from stresses released after crater formation. Tsiolkovsky,
the lunar far-side crater shown here, is 115miles (185km) in diameter. Basaltic
lava has flooded the crater's floor giving it a dark smooth appearance.
Material from landslides can be seen around the edge of the floor. (Apollo
