How did the moon form?
As you probably know already, the moon’s gravitational pull is accountable for the rise and fall of the ocean tides. But have you ever wondered how did the moon form? Well, it took a hundred million years after the creation of the universe for the planets to form, and the moon took even more time until it came to existence.
While there are a lot of theories to support the forming of the moon, none of them have been proven yet. According to Dave Stevenson, a professor of planetary science at the California Institute of Technology, before trying to figure out why we have a moon, we need to understand why Venus doesn’t have one.
But unfortunately, we don’t have the answer to these questions at the moment.
