nah, Alice... what i'm thinking of is
Why can't we find, trace the 'shockwave' of debris from such an event?
even the ieds in the middle east create quite the shockwave, lightning-fast debris field, etc.....
given the grand Scale and Scheme of things I'd have to think scientists that support the GIh would at least be looking for or able to identify an expanding debris field that could/would correlate to the timeframe with which to study further as suspect.
Some of the findings of this long-term experiment are:
The Moon is spiraling away from Earth at a rate of 3.8 cm per year. This rate has been described as anomalously high.
The Moon probably has a liquid core of about 20% of the Moon's radius.
The universal force of gravity is very stable. The experiments have put an upper limit on the change in Newton's gravitational constant G of less than 1 part in 1011 since 1969.
The likelihood of any "Nordtvedt effect" (a differential acceleration of the Moon and Earth towards the Sun caused by their different degrees of compactness) has been ruled out to high precision, strongly supporting the validity of the Strong Equivalence Principle.
Einstein's theory of gravity (the general theory of relativity) predicts the Moon's orbit to within the accuracy of the laser ranging measurements.
The average distance from Earth to the Moon is 384,400 km (238,900 mi). (about 389 LD is 1 AU, the Earth-Sun distance) The actual distance varies over the course of the orbit of the moon, from 363,104 km (225,622 mi) at the perigee and 405,696 km (252,088 mi) at apogee, resulting in a differential range of 42,592 km (26,465 mi).

and the moons of mars are another puzzle phobos and demos loved all this stuff when i was young and it is so easy to find online now the kids are lucky to have the net to find things these days .
when i was young in the 60s/70s what looks you got in the library asking for those books here;s the crazy kid again i heard once
I think the poster does not mean shock wave so much as dissipating cloud of ejecta from the impact which as achieved escape velocity and how long it would continue to expand.
tires leave tread .... impacts leave 'signatures'... no!?
is the biblical reference to the 'creation of eve' just a passed down tale over the cosmos of the moon's creation from being carved of earth?
