Summary The far side of the Moon was unknown to humanity until the Luna and Lunar Orbiter pictures were returned to Earth. A giant impact struck the near side with such force that it created the "near side megabasin", opening the way for floods of mare and sending vast amounts of ejecta to the far side. This title explains this event.
