Influence of a Fluid Lunar Core on the Moons OrientationOblateness of and dissipation at the lunar liquid-core/solid-mantle boundary affects the precession of core and mantle. Analysis of Lunar Laser ranges gives a weak detection of oblateness and a strong determination of dissipation. Additional information is contained in the original extended abstract.
