Storyboard Text

  • We all know what the moon is but we don't really know where it came from,so let's talk about it.
  • But where did this asteroid come from? Also why are there many of them surrounding other planets? Yeah, this isn't really a solid theory is it?
  • One theory of the moon is that it was an asteroid that was caught in Earth's gravitational pull and slowly began to form into a spherical shape.
  • The leading theory in the moon's origin is the Giant-impact hypothesis
  • This theory suggests the moon formed from debris leftover by the collision between Earth and another body the size of Mars
  • First piece of evidence is Earth's spin and the moon's orbit have similar orientations.
  • Now scientists could get down with this theory since there was evidence to support it.
  • A large amount of energy was liberated in the formation of the moon is what predicted a large portion was molten *hmph* I'm gonna be sick...
  • Another *hmph* piece of supporting evidence is that the moons surface was once molten *mph*
  • But this is not a perfect theory as several remaining questions concerning the best current models of this theory. As of 2015 there aren't really any self consistent models that start with this theory and lead to creation of the moon
  • Will we ever figure out the true origin of the mysterious natural satellite? I don't know, but I do know... I gotta get out of space *Hmph*
  • But at the moment, it's the best theory we got right now so scientists are helping to better improve this theory and show further proof.
