The filling contracts as the temperature lowers. This is common in most substances. What makes the difference here is that the filling shrinks MORE than the crust does. It also sticks to itself better than it sticks to the crust, so that is where the separation takes place.

What happens to the crust as it moves away from the mid ocean ridge?

As the volcanic material moves away from the Mid Ocean Ridge, it cools (which makes it denser); it forms the large 'Giants Causeway" type of polygon rock forms; once it has passed through the Curie point, it preserves a record of the magnetic field as is was when the rock cools.

Divergent plate boundaries. They pull away from each other, and magma rises from the gap, cools, and solidifies, which creates "new" crust.

New rocks are formed at divergent boundries. Divergent boundries are where plates of the earths crust are going away from each other and magma is rising and cools in the ocean and creates new rocks.

Where are the oldest rocks found on the ocean's crust?

How can the ocean crust be different ages?

On geologic time scales, new oceanic crust is constantly being formed ad mid-ocean ridges while older crust is destroyed at subduction zones. The crust forms at the ridge and is carried away by the movement of the plate as new crust forms to take its place. The oceanic crust is youngest new a mid ocean ridge and oldest far away from it.
