Volcanic Moon and Bombardment Phase

October 20, 2017

Saw this about the Moon having a thin atmosphere 3.5 to 4 bya.

I always wondered why the half of the moon facing earth was so cratered while the other side was not.

Could it be that this volcanic outgassing was pulled out of the Moon by the gravity of the Earth?

Then, if that is true, does that suggest that the bombardment, was not asteroids as much as it was the Earth forcing volcanic activity from the near side of the Moon?

Then, if there was not the severe bombardment phase, we can move back the OOL (origin of life) to an earlier time?
