Earth-Moon System Formation Date May Have Been 150 Million Years After Solar System


The Earth and Moon were created as the result of a giant collision between two planets the size of Mars and Venus. However, new research from the Niels Bohr Institute shows that the Earth and Moon must have formed much later – perhaps up to 150 million years after the formation of the solar system. The research results have been published in the scientific journal, Earth and Planetary Science Letters, according to a report in Moon Daily.
