New Theory For The Creation Of Our Moon

A new theory has come out of the creation of our moon. It's been widely accepted that the moon was created when a Mars-sized object hit the earth, what remained after that impact is what we now call our moon. New information from a study that was conducted by Harvard researchers gives everyone a new way of looking at the theories.

Simon Lock who graduated from Harvard is behind the research. According to Tunis Daily News (, He mentioned that the theory that's currently accepted doesn't make much sense because of the extremely specific conditions needed to actually create the moon.

Simon Lock said: “Getting enough mass into orbit in the canonical scenario is actually very difficult, and there’s a very narrow range of collisions that might be able to do it,”

“There’s only a couple of degree window of impact angles and a very narrow range of sizes…and even then some impacts still don’t work.”

The study explains how it's likely that the Earth and our beloved moon formed from a cloud of vaporized rock.

According to Tech Times (, the research stated: "Once the Earth-synestia formed, chunks of molten rock injected into orbit during the impact formed the seed for the Moon. Vaporized silicate rock condensed at the surface of the synestia and rained onto the proto-Moon, while the Earth-synestia itself gradually shrank."

What this means for the science community is that they can look into and use a new theory that answers some questions that may not have been able to be answered beforehand.

However, while this study gives answers and can definitely help out the science community with research into our moon and why it orbits us, it may need some more improvements. This is something that's done to ensure the best of information gets to everyone who wants and needs it. This seems to be why Simon Lock and his colleagues will continue to tune their model and test out this new theory.
