How old is the moon?

the age of the noon how old is the noonSome scientists think that the old moon might not be as antique as we thought. It is possible, according to them, that it isn't a day over 4.4 billion years old although, with a new study's conclusions, other astronomers disagree. Since they have suspected all these years, they think the moon is up to its typical age-defying tricks and is really pushing 4.6 billion.

MSNBC reports:

The scientists discovered these moon rocks apparently crystallized about 4.36 billion years ago, well after the moon is thought to have formed. This means the moon might be either significantly younger than researchers suspected, or the prevailing notion of a quickly cooling global ocean of magma might be wrong.
