  Researchers Detect Hints of Recent Tectonic Activity on The Near Side of The Moon Researchers Detect Hints of Recent Tectonic Activity on The Near Side of The Moon that they believe is recent - and may even be ongoing today.The presence of relatively fresh rocks and boulders reveals a system of ridges across the face of the Moon that suggests recent tectonic movement."There's this assumption that the Moon is long dead, but we keep finding that that's not the case," said planetary geologist Peter Schultz of Brown University. "From this paper it appears that the Moon may still be creaking and cracking - potentially in the present day - and we can see the evidence on these ridges.

Dean Moon (May 1, 1927 – June 4, 1987), grew up in Norwalk, California. Moon was around cars and racing from his youth. His father owned " Moon Cafe" and had a go-kart track he called "Moonza", a pun on Monza. He was involved in dry lakes hot-rodding in the late 1940 s .

Around 1980, Michael Lightbourn spotted an odd, enclosed car trailer on the side of a cotton farm on the outskirts of Fabens, Texas. Eventually he met the owner Bob Kimpel who unlocked the door and let Lightbourn peek inside. Lightbourn eyeballed the back of a single-seat, tube-frame racecar, stretching 188 inches into the trailer's nose. Kimpel explained this old racecar was named Moonburst and had been featured in an issue of HOT ROD Magazine. Feeling a sense of awe and wonder that comes with uncovering buried treasure, Lightbourn was eager to buy. Bob did not want to sell, but the two became friends and kept in contact over the next 20 years.

Kimpel had purchased Moonburst for $1,200 in "1973 or 1974," through a Cincinnati, Ohio classified ad. He wasn't even aware of the car's legacy until after the purchase, when the seller said, "Oh by the way, it was featured in some magazine." At the local library he searched back issues of HOT ROD to find his car on page 72 of the July 1971 issue. Enthused, he got busy hunting the original Mr. Ed Trailer that Jack Mackay used to transport Moonburst to drag races in the 1970s. The trailer cost more than the car. Bob recalls the price was "$1300 or $1500," which he gladly anted up.

A drag racer, Kimpel worked as a Heli arc welder at a chassis shop. His original intention was to convert Moonburst to the newer-and-safer rear-engine layout. Lucky for history, Bob never got around to the job.

Renewed interest in these old dragsters, glamorized during Cacklefests, (events where nitro-burning dragsters from the "Golden Era of Drag Racing" make their distinctive crackling noises), inspired an inquiry on Facebook. Whatever happened to Moonburst? Kimpel's daughter-in-law posted that her father-in-law owned that very car. When the hot rod crowd found out, someone offered $90,000 for the car. On June 3, 2020, for the first time since 1977, Bob pulled the car and parts out of the trailer.

What's spectacular about Moonburst is the car became a time capsule inside the Mr. Ed trailer. The Woody Gilmore chassis is excellent and still has its original paint. The Tom Hanna aluminum body is all there. The paint might be stripped, but the metal is in excellent form, save for a small dent in the front. Most of the original parts remain, except for the original 392 blown Chrysler Hemi. Drag racers keep their engines when they sell. In the 1970s, Bob rounded up a 392 Hemi block, a pair of 6-71 Thompson and Detroit superchargers, and an intake for an early-model Chrysler Hemi.
