New research on Lunar Rocks prove that earth is a result of two Planets. We are living on an earth within an Earth!
4.5 billion years ago, Theia, a planetary embryo the size of Mars, crashed into Earth. The crash as astronomic hypothesis believes formed the moon. But, NEW EVIDENCE seeks to prove that the object DID NOT move away as believed earlier. It remained FUSED WITH the EARTH. This means that EARTH is actually TWO PLANETS fused into ONE.
The “Giant Impact Hypothesis” was the basis set forth by scientists in explaining the formation of the moon. The collision took place 4.5 billion years ago involving the Earth and the planetary object Named Theia. The common theory was that Theia side swept the Earth and moved away. The collision itself was so harsh that debris from both broke away of which a major chunk formed the moon.
However the main issue today isn’t the Moon. But now the new findings from the research from lunar rocks have proved that Theia never left earth. The impact was too great for it to move away. This has now led to the possibilities of a new hypothesis claiming that Earth is made up of two planets. An Earth within an Earth!
1 Research on Lunar rocks from the Apollo mission provides new insight!
A study conducted by the UCLA (University of California Los Angeles) on the 7 samples of lunar rocks brought back to earth by the Apollo missions has thrown up new evidence of the composition and structure of both the moon and the earth. The Lunar rocks were compared with volcanic rocks from regions such as Arizona and Hawaii.
Common theory according to past research made us believe that Theia’s collision hit the side of the earth and moved away. In such an event, the structure and chemical compositions of lunar rocks should be totally different from that of the earth. BUT!!! They weren’t.
2 Analysis of oxygen isotopes of both lunar rocks and earth’s volcanic rocks prove to be identical!
The analysis of the lunar rocks was done to study the nature of oxygen isotopes present in the rock structure. Every rock belonging to different planets have unique and different fingerprints or the oxygen ratio of isotopes. The oxygen structure reveals the ratio of protons and neutrons in oxygen atoms present. Such analysis also reveals the origin of planetary material.
If lunar rocks possessed a different isotope structure from that of Earth, then the prediction of the collision hypothesis will ring true. But, the study proved that the oxygen isotopes of both the volcanic rocks and the moon were IDENTICAL.
3 Confirmation of new research will change theories of evolution of the earth as a planet
To quote lead researcher Edward Young, “We don’t see any difference between Earth’s and the Moon’s oxygen isotopes; they’re indistinguishable”. Theia fused into earth and was evenly distributed between the earth and the moon. This is why the signature of the earth and the moon are THE SAME!!
Not much is known in regards to the planet Theia. Researchers feel that being an embryo, it was in an early growth stage similar to the Earth at the time. Confirmation of research studies will lead to new insight in the formation and evolution of our planet it its early stages.Theia being in embryo stage was also probably growing similar to the status of Earth at the time
4 Research proves the theory of the earth within an earth
The moon is probably made up of 40% of material from Theia. According to Isotope geochemist and lead study author Daniel Herwartz, the giant impact hypothesis is possibly the best source of revelation as to the moon’s formation. This also explains the absence of certain substances from the moon’s crust such as water.
Lunar analysis has also proved the possible composition of Theia as being made up of enstatite chondrites. This is a particular type of meteorite whose isotope composition is almost the similar to that of the Earth. With the new findings establishing the origins of the moon, confirmation is eagerly awaited after the publication of the research to prove beyond doubt that the Earth is after all, two planets merged into one!
