In a meeting about the origins of the moon, scientists discussed the leading theory of its creation, citing new evidence that suggests it might have
formed 100 million years later than was originally thought.
Most scientists believe a giant collision on Earth from an object about the size Mars blew out a mass of debris, which then came together to form the
moon. It was previously thought the moon was 4.56 billion years old, but new analysis of moon rocks dates it at 4.4 billion to 4.45 billion years old,
according to Space.com.
I find reports and articles like this to be amazingly funny. We, scientists, can't even agree on Climate change over the past 100 years, yet, they
are going to squabble over something that happened over 4 BILLION years ago?
Does anyone else find this to be absurd? And yet to even have the difference to be around just 10% in discrepancy as if it is some huge scientific
finding that is relevant at all?
Come on...lets focus on what is relevant, instead of making news articles just to be heard.
