The study appears in the journal Nature Geoscience . The moonquakes were recorded by five seismometers that were placed on the Moon's surface during the Apollo 11 , 12, 14, 15 and 16 missions . These faults push one part of the lunar crust up and over the adjoining part, said University of Maryland geologist and study co-author Nicholas Schmerr.
