I'm sorry.
Can you be more specific?

Nope anyone who read the thread knows where and who said that and if do you really need a source or a report to know that fragments left over from the creation of the solar system that have crashed into every planet and their moons which all could be dated more than 4.5 billion years.

I guess I'm missing your point or you are mine. I asked for a source dating Moon dust older than the Moon. I haven't seen that in this thread. All I've seen is the claim (unsubstantiated) that moon rocks were dated at 5.3 billion years.

The oldest material found on the Moon is 4.46 billion years old.

The oldest meteorites found are about 4.55 billion years old. So yes, the oldest rocks found on the Moon (and Earth) are somewhat younger than the oldest meteorites.

Gee if we had a moon base like someone wants we would know the answers.

Just saying.

And moon dust dated older than the moon the moon has been hit for millions of years by solar system debris.


If i built a Marriott Hotel on the moon and turned off the artificial gravity, what would it be like to jump
into the swimming pool? One sixth gravity? I think i would walk on the water for 1 maybe 2 steps
and then fall to the bottom.


After lunch go on an expedition to the new state-of-the-art Meade telescope array.
- Lunar 1 Colony -

I guess a nation like Germany could put a prison up there.
Go luck escaping. Where would they go?

BTW, what's the point with -right fighting- with Phage over the origins of our moon?

It's there. I'm glad it's there. However, have you ever wondered that the size and location
of the moon is just a little too perfect?


A solar eclipse is the -perfect- opportunity to view our suns corona. - Food for Thought -

So, Im not going to do the work for you by searching fo you, I know the info is there for those who wish to find it


I realize this is a bit off topic, but I'd like to point out that asking the person you disagree with to do your research for you is the surest way to not to convince them of your point.

Democritus and Anaxagoras taught that there was a time when the Earth was without the Moon. Aristotle wrote that Arcadia in Greece, before being inhabited by the Hellenes, had a population of Pelasgians, and that these aborigines occupied the land already before there was a moon in the sky above the Earth; for this reason they were called Proselenes. Apollonius of Rhodes mentioned the time “when not all the orbs were yet in the heavens, before the Danai and Deukalion races came into existence, and only the Arcadians lived, of whom it is said that they dwelt on mountains and fed on acorns, before there was a moon.”

Plutarch wrote in The Roman Questions: “There were Arcadians of Evander’s following, the so-called pre-Lunar people.” Similarly wrote Ovid: “The Arcadians are said to have possessed their land before the birth of Jove, and the folk is older than the Moon.” Hippolytus refers to a legend that “Arcadia brought forth Pelasgus, of greater antiquity than the moon.” Lucian in his Astrology says that “the Arcadians affirm in their folly that they are older than the moon.” Censorinus also alludes to the time in the past when there was no moon in the sky.

How do we know the moon's age?

Rocks brought back from the moon contain zircon crystals. Zircons crystallize only after 80 to 85 percent of a volume of molten rock has solidified. By understanding how uranium within the zirconium breaks down into lead, scientists believe they know when the crystals formed with an error margin of less than 4 million years. The oldest zircons from the moon are about 10 million years older than the oldest yet discovered on Earth. The ages of lunar zircons identified in other studies hint that small amounts of the moon’s crust remained molten for another 200 million to 400 million years.

I trust I made my point?

The Greeks also said that Apollo pulled the Sun across the sky with his chariot. They also told a story about a monster living within a labyrinth. Do you think the Odyssey is a historical document to be taken as word for word fact? There was a one eyed giant and a witch and sirens with an irresistible song? Legends go a long way but they are, after all, legends.

Rocks on Earth are weathered and "recycled" by tectonic activity. Not so on the Moon. It is to be expected that older rocks are to be found on the Moon than are found on Earth. Just as meteorites are found that are older than rocks found on the Moon or Earth.
