John Batchelor and I welcomed Dr. William Bottke to Hotel Mars to discuss his work and new paper regarding a new theory on how our Moon was formed. You can read his paper in Science, “Evidence for Moon-Forming Impact Found Inside Meteorites at http://www.sciencemag.org/content/348/6232/321. During our segment, Dr. Bottke talked about this new work, high impact velocity, lunar creation, and more. Near the end, we talked about Ceres and our lunar similarities with dwarf planets.

It is great to hear that there are some evident that materials that escaped Earth system at impact of the Mars-type proto-planet was potentially identified. It was one of the questions, which did arise at end of this very detailed presentation. There is also option that another type of more energetic impact occurred, which produced a different type of silicate atmosphere from which Moon condensed. The thermodynamics within this atmosphere is most important.
