Is the moon a collection of alien objects ? How do you like your moon sir ?

?? Well, perhaps you need to spend more than "10 minutes" researching on the Internet!!:

And the rest of the debris formed our galaxy the Milky Way...

Here, yet again, you repeated the same incorrect statement? This, you said, regarding debris from the impact of two proto-planets (early Earth, and another large celestial body, possibility about the size of present-day Mars).

The mass of ejecta that was the smaller proto-planet, combined with a good portion of the Earth's outer layers, spewed out, from the collision....but, MOST of it remained locally, due to gravitational attraction. The impact had a rotational element to it, and as everything swirled 'round and 'round, it eventually coalesced into TWO main masses, which was still the Earth (and it GAINED mass, in the process)...the other bits formed what we now know is the Moon.

A galaxy, my dear fellow, is NOT a collection of "debris" from that event!!! A GALAXY is a collection of....stars!! In our "Milky Way" Galaxy, several hundred billion of them. An exact count is beyond our capabilities to accurately measure, of course.

BTW, you are correct...and it has already been mentioned, in posts above, about the Earth/Moon system, as a sort of double planet. And, true there is nothing else similar in our Solar System. But, if you would take "10 minutes" on the Internet, and trot on over to the Kepler telescope info about the extra-solar planets they're discovering, you will see that doubles have been discovered in other star systems. AND, it is apparently rather common, two, for STARS to be doubles and triples. How that would affect any life forms that may evolve in their planetary systems is anyone's guess.....

Again....that "ring like a bell" nonsense comes from a statement by one of the scientists involved....he used it as a SIMILE, to describe the event. He never, never, never meant to imply that the Moon was hollow, by that statement!!!

It is unfortunate that the less scientifically inclined among us hear that reference, and then envision an actual BELL shape, and draw the wrong conclusions and inferences. Truly, ignorance rearing its ugly head. Solid objects reverberate...."ring"....try it yourself. Put your ear to a large rock, then hit it (the rock, not our ear) with a metal rod. You will hear the rock "ring like a bell", even though it's solid. Like laying your ear on a railroad track, when a train is approaching. What it confirmed (and surprised some) is that the Moon's core was less liquid than Earth's...less molten, so the "echoing" of the seismic waves behaved differently than they do on our planet, with its various layers of materials. These studies, of the Moon, help to try to draw a "picture" of its internal structure.

Here's an animation to visualize the Moon' formation event:

Correction: I meant asteroid belt not Milky Way.

Not saying you are a "shill" or anything like that, but why is it "hollow moon theory" even in passing brings a fervency to the opposition as I only see with the denial of spacecraft from other planets, and hollow earth? Coincidence? You will note...nowhere did I say it was true...I said it was curious. (The ringing bell statement/ which did happen)
You come out with the guns loaded against it, telling me to back off, I am foolish or should read more...I read enough to know when I am being bullshat.
I know people crazed by the full moon. Though you can say I don't all you want. It isn't a myth. Here is one study that backs it up.
Once there, click on Mysteries of the Moon to get this..

For thousands of years, mankind has found comfort in its presence. It's been a lantern for nighttime travelers, a timekeeper for farmers, and a location finder for sailors at sea. For some cultures, it's even been a god. It's the only cosmic body ever visited by human beings. From afar, the Moon's luminance has captivated us since the beginning of time. And a closer look at the beacon in the dark sky reveals an ever-present source of myth, intrigue, controversy and unsolved mysteries. The field of science may cast an empirical light on some things about the Universe, but lunar experts are the first to admit they don't have all the answers when it comes to our Moon. This episode explores the theories behind Lunar Transient Phenomena that have left scientists stumped for centuries; takes to the Canadian waters to see how the Moon effects our planet through tides

How the Moon Rules Your Life

Rather far afield, off topic. I was in error saying "formed the Milky Way".. I meant ASTEROID BELT.
...but thanks for the definition.

The formation and evolution of the Solar System is estimated to have begun 4.568 billion years ago with the gravitational collapse of a small part of a giant molecular cloud.[1] Most of the collapsing mass collected in the centre, forming the Sun, while the rest flattened into a protoplanetary disk out of which the planets, moons, asteroids, and other small Solar System bodies formed.

Pluto is not a planet according to IAU General Assembly 2006

I have my doubts about being warned off. I also have my doubts about whether you understood Armstrong's speech. It was needlessly cryptic and clearly intended to make us look deeper

wow thanx for all the replies ... I'm so happy we have open civil lunar intercourse here

I dont know why you are wasting your time on this mate, this OP seems like the insane brother of Mike Singh that they kept up the loft and fed fish heads
He is trolling as I called from his intro post and is just posting the same crappy moon videos from youtube to get himself hits. The ignore button is your friend ;-)
