Where and how did the moon?

MoonThe formation of the Moon where and how did the moon? The prevailing wisdom is that the planet was named Teja came into our solar system and collided with the Earth, running part of the molten material into orbit. Over time, this material is joined together and formed the moon. New research geophysicist Dzhunyuna Zhang shows that this theory may prove to be incorrect. In an article published in the journal Nature Geoscience, he said that a comparative analysis of the isotopes of titanium from the Moon and Earth, has shown that they are almost identical. These results are contrary to the theory of the formation of the lunar material from another planet.Scientists have found that the oxygen isotopes of the mantle of the Earth and Moon were almost identical, but this was not enough to undermine the theory of the formation of the moon on a collision Teyi as oxygen isotopes from the Earth to blend in with the isotope mass of molten material, rotating around the planet after the collision. But as in the case of the isotopes of titanium, the interchange is not so easy, then such a scheme mixing the isotopes are much less likely.

Most scientists agree that if the planet crashed into Earth and was formed as a result our satellite, the Moon must consist in part of the material on this planet. According to some estimates, the amount of such material should be in an area of forty percent. If so, then why are the samples of lunar soil, which were brought to Earth during the Apollo program did not contain material that other planets?

According to another hypothesis, crashed into the Earth not a planet, and an object consisting of ice, which is evaporated, leaving behind evidence of their involvement in the launch of a piece of the Earth’s orbit.

Others do not want to abandon the theory of Teye, even with all the new data. They argue that if Tay consisted of the same material as the Earth, the isotopes must be the same. The probability of such a development there, although quite small. Let’s hope that new studies will give a definite answer to this question.
