Moon Rocks Help Support Theia Collision Theory - The Moon was most likely formed by a collision between the Earth and a planet-sized object that took place roughly 4.5 billion years ago, a team of German scientists report in research published Friday by the journal Science. That object was a planetesimal named Theia, Dr. Daniel Herwartz of the University of Goettingen and his colleagues explained in their study. Image Credit: NASA | via redOrbit.com

Traces of another world found on the -MoonResearchers have found evidence of the world that crashed into the Earth billions of years ago to form the Moon. Analysis of lunar rock brought back by Apollo astronauts shows traces of the "planet" called Theia. The researchers claim that their discovery confirms the theory that the Moon was created by just such a cataclysmic collision.
