Stellar Metamorphosis: An Alternative to the Giant-Impact Hypothesis for Moon Formation

Authors: Jeffrey Joseph Wolynski

An ad hoc proposition was made by scientists to form the Moon. In it, they state that the Earth was hit by an incredibly massive object, which then the moon formed out of as a giant blob of shrapnel. They hypothesized that in order to create the Moon, another object called Theia was needed which is of course an object that has never been observed, as well as a process that has never been observed. Alternatively, if stellar metamorphosis is used, the Moon can be explained as well as Venus's lack of one, in accordance to the observations found in the age of exoplanets.
