    PDF or EBOOK (When the Earth Had Two Moons) ´ Erik Asphaug Summary Great overview of just this galaxy It goes through the portion that is covered by space geologists The major thing is that the title is misleadingThis book tells you what we know about the galaxy to date and gives a pretty good time line of the history of how we know it This other stuff in the title relates to passing comments Too bad Could have had a better engaging title I thinkchokengtitiktitikchokeng 32 Keple

Read Ä When the Earth Had Two Moons 104 Nd the comets asteroids satellites and rings are bewitchingly distinct So too the halves of our moonIn When the Earth Had Two Moons esteemed planetary geologist Erik Asphaug takes us on an exhilarating tour through the farthest reaches of time and our galaxy to find out why Beautifully written and provocatively argued When the Earth Had Two Moons is not only a mind blowing astronomical tour but a profound inuiry into the nature of life here and billions of miles from ho. When I was in school the planetary system was the gold standard for modeling permanence and regularity We even had a law for predicting where planets could be found Of course whether it was a law or a coincidence would depend on observations from other planetary systems around other stars but in 1977 that was not something to worry aboutWell the returns are now in and the universe is far stranger than we can imagine with large planets migrating around the solar system or spiraling into orbits that take a week to travel around their stars Planets smashing into each other as dust particles build up into boulders build up into embryos that reach a size called oligarchs from which the survivors of the age of bombardment can be called planets or moons or plutinos Erik Asphaug s When the Earth had Two Moons offers the apogee of Gosh Wow Science with a tour of the Solar System s pre history Long before we had our nine planets there may have been many planets orbiting the Sun Some of those planets lost Jupiters and Saturns spiraled into the Sun Others collided and left behind one planet as the lucky shark surviving in the ocean The EarthMoon system is the result of a collision between proto Earth and a Mars sized oligarch now called Theia which struck at just the right angle to deposit a large section of Earth s crust into Earth orbit This formed the Moon which has been slowly receding from Earth so that right now it is at the exact distance to permit full eclipses of the Sun When we get reports of Super Earths that may simply be an indication that the Earths of that system didn t avoid the continuing accretion that could have happened in our systemAsphaug is noted for a pioneering theory of the formation of the Moon One of the discoveries of the Apollo program was of the Dark Side of the Moon which had never been observed before The Moon is tidally locked to the Earth and only ever shows one side to the planet The Dark Side does not have the familiar Mares or dark flat spot we are used to seeing Instead it is all mountains and has a thicker crust Asphaug theorizes that there was a time when the Earth was orbited by two moons The smaller eventually crashed into what is now the Dark Side which formed the mountainous terrain we now know to existThis is mind bending stuff Asphaug s text is accessible to the layman but I really couldn t figure out how his topics were organized It seemed that he meandered from one topic to another without any organizing ideaNonetheless this is interesting material and it would be worth buying Asphaug a beer and letting him meander into the night
