Why does a golf ball have dimples on its surface?

Golf balls have the tiny little craters in it so that it would not become a smooth object and roll past a TEE marker. If the ball was round with no craters on it and you were to swing with a nine iron or something of this capatable and you were aiming say for the 18th par and you most likely would never be able to get close enough to the goal for fear of rollover and or rollby moves. Craters thus enhance the movement of the ball to land and not move and reduce the movement away from desire target.

How do you describe the main differences and similarities between moon rocks and earth rocks?

Moon rocks are unique in that they have tiny craters, and even tinier craters within those tiny craters. And within those tiny craters within the tiny craters are even tinier craters. This is due to micrometers which do not reach the earth's surface. It's also a result of large meteors splattering small pieces of moon regolith as secondary meteors. None of this is possible on earth. The similarity between moon rocks and earth rocks is that they are basically feldspars and basalt, the same thing that makes up the earth's crust.
