RT – Origin of the moon called into question by groundbreaking new study
he prevailing theory of how our moon came into being is that a giant collision billions of years ago created the craggy rock. However, a new theory has called into question our basic understanding of lunar origin.
A study led by UC Davis planetary scientist Sarah Stewart and Harvard University’s Simon Lock, published in the Journal of Geophysical Research, presents a new hypothesis for the formation of our satellite. The paper also explains some inconsistencies in the predominating ‘impact theory’.
