As Proto-Moon orbited the Earth, it cooled, and collected debris from the area around space. At that time, the moon was closer to the Earth than it is today. In billions of years, our planetary companions moved away from our home world as a result of the force of gravity between the Earth and the Moon.
Turn the story around a bit …
Researchers at Durham University developed a supercomputer simulation, which shows how this happens Ancient collision May have surfaced.
Theia’s velocity and angle of impact affected the collision, as did the rotational rate of the body. The team of investigators investigated a wide range of possible situations, ranging from no spin to a quick rotation, and from gloving to a more direct effect.
Interestingly, when the simulation tested the effect of a non-spinning version of the Thea, it had an effect with about 80 percent of the mass of a satellite. The moon. Adding just a small amount of spin brought a second moon around the Earth.
Some of the effects studied resulted in the merger of early Earth and Thia, while others simply showed an attractive shock between the bodies.
“Between the discs of debris that result in some effects, we cover a self-gravity of material. It is almost the mass of the moon, it contains [about one percent] Moon-like iron … This bunch mainly contains influential material near its core, but is increasingly rich in proto-Earth material near its surface, “the researchers described in an article published in Monthly notice of the Royal Astronomical Society.
As the young proto-moon settled in orbit around the Earth, the prospect of the young body grew by collecting debris from the space around our homeworld. This body was seen developing a small iron core, surrounded by material from both theia and early earth, as we see The moon.
“It is exciting that some of our simulations have produced this orbiting material that is not much smaller than the Moon, with a disk of additional material around the Earth after the impact that will help it grow massively over time … I will not say that it is the moon, but it is definitely a very interesting place to continue to look, ”Dr. Sergio Ruiz-Bonilla Said at the Institute of Computational Cosmology at Durham University.
Researchers will continue to refine the model, examining how mass, velocity, spin, and other factors may influence the effects that formed The moon.
