A second moon orbited the Earth but a slow-motion collision with its bigger sister left our planet with one, scientists say. Astronomers believe that this collision, which lasted several hours, can explain the moon's asymmetry.

i highly doubt we had a second moon we have no record in history of this a better question is why is our moon older than earth by billions of years why is it we only ever see one side? (whats hiding on the other side?) this perfect orbit happens no where else in our solar system why? I believe the moon is not what we have been told it is . now we have confirmation from other sources (not nasa) there is water there (where there is water there is life) why have we not gone back ? why did we bomb the moon ? (real reason) any resident experts care to answer my questions

This is pretty interesting.
They are explaining away the moons asymmetry due to a collision with another moon?

I saw this theory on the "news" yesterday. I don't believe it.
Everyone knows either the Moon is an artificial satellite, or it, and the Earth was created when Nibiru smashed into Tiamat.
