Reply to post: Density

The Moon certainly ain't made of cheese but it may be made of more metal than previously thought, sensor shows



We know the volume; we know the mass; thus we know the density. As a general rule metals --> more dense than non metals. So does this imply that the moon is a bit like Thompson's Plum Pudding model of the atom? If the data is correct it would appear to suggest that there are sort of submerged pimples of dense metallic mass.

One thing not made clear is how deep the dialetric effect could measure to.
