Sure it could be. Anything's possible. Scientists believe that the asteroid belt isn't enough mass to actually make a significant planet. Well, I
have my own theory.
Over 4.5 billion years of the solar system's history, we're left with probably less than half of the asteroids we started out with. Now, scientists
theorize that 4.5 billion years ago, a planet named, I believe, Orpheus, orbited in between Earth and Mars. The planet broadsided the Earth once or
twice and shattered, the remains forming Earth's moon, Luna. Well, what if this planet crashed into Earth and shattered? Part of it formed our
moon, the rest got sucked into its current position of the asteroid belt by Jupiter's massive gravity over billions of years. Since part of the
planet's mass is in our moon, part of it's mass is in the asteroid belt and part of it's mass has been taken out of the asteroid belt by billions
of years of collisions, that would be PLENTY to make a significant sized planet.
That's my personal theory that I feel science would accept if I was a world-renowned scientists. Now for my ATS-style theory:
There's a good chance the moon may be hollow. Some people say the inside of the moon is colonized by ET's and is Earth-like inside. Well, what if
the ET's took the planet Orpheus and destroyed it. They took the remains of the planet and turned it into our moon and placed it in our orbit to
constantly monitor us. They then stuck the rest of the planet they destroyed into its current position nestled as safely as can be thanks to
These are my two personal theories. Take them for what they're worth.
