Caption: Earth crater, 19th century artwork. Craters on Earth were used by 19th-century astronomers to explain the origin of lunar craters in terms of volcanism. It was not until 1893 that US geologist Grove Karl Gilbert (1843-1918) advanced his theory that lunar craters were caused by impact events, rather than volcanic eruptions.
