Full Article Title
The origin of the noon continues to be a lively area of discussion. A collision between a young, molten earth and a large planetesimal has become a popular explanation. After reviewing the traditional origin theories, the likelihood of lunar origin by collision will be examined. An upper limit on the age of the dynamical earth-moon system is also calculated. Tile result reveals a fundamental time conflict with secular views of the moon's history.
