The most widely held theory is that the moon is comprised of partly some object colliding with earth, and taking a chunk of it away. Maybe we should call it earth theif?
Anyhow, what I don't get is if the moon is partly composed of earth, then why aren't the same diversity of elements and compounds found there?
Which theory fails to account for the exact size and distance compared to the Sun.

Also it rings like a bell.
