A favorite pastime of astronomers is to debate the origin of Earth’s Moon, but despite decades of research, they don’t seem to be any closer to reaching a consensus. Scientists have now added a new theory to the mix—and it’s weird as hell. The Moon, they argue, formed inside a gigantic donut-shaped cloud of vaporized rock that would eventually condense into the Earth.
A new theory suggests the Earth and Moon DID form together…but not in the way we’ve previously theorized.
