The moon believes that everyone is familiar with it. Since the day human beings were born, there have been two celestial bodies in the sky that have always been the focus of human attention. One is the sun and the other is the moon. The sun shines on the earth during the day and brings light and heat to the earth, while the moon rises above the sky at night, bringing a little light to the dark environment.
For people in ancient times, light is a very sacred thing. Without light we cannot see anything and cannot walk. Especially at night, there was no current lighting equipment in ancient times. At that time, people had activities or travels at night, and the moon was the best beacon. Therefore, the moon had a sacred position in the hearts of people in ancient times.
At the same time, because the moon is relatively close to the earth, and the earth’s environment in ancient times is very good, there is no polluting gas, and the moon in ancient times is closer to the earth. Therefore, some pictures on the surface of the moon can be seen by ancient human ancestors, and those pictures are now known as craters and craters.
It’s just that humans in ancient times didn’t have these concepts. They thought that it was a building on the moon and that there was a human inhabited on the moon. As a result, some ancient myths and legends about the moon have been formed. With the continuous progress of human civilization, when we enter the age of science and technology and have advanced observation equipment, we have some preliminary understanding of the universe and the moon.
Scientists have discovered through preliminary observations and studies on the moon that the moon reveals a mysterious color. The reason is that the moon is too big. With such a mass and volume, how can it become a satellite of the earth? Moreover, through long-term observation, we have also found that the moon always faces the earth with one side, that is, the back side we will never see on the earth.
When people knew that the moon would always only face the earth, conspiracy theories about the moon also appeared. Some people believed that the moon was not a natural celestial body, but an advanced civilization placed next to the earth to monitor the earth. Others believe that there is an alien civilization base on the back of the moon. I believe that many friends have seen many stories about the back of the moon on the Internet, and there are also some related photos, such as the remains of alien civilizations and three-eyed female aliens. Corpse and so on.
These statements, coupled with the photos, make many people mistakenly believe that the back of the moon is the base of aliens. But in fact, there is no such thing on the back of the moon. They are all things made by lunar conspiracy theorists. Especially in the last century, after the American Apollo 11 achieved a manned landing on the moon, the argument that there is an alien base on the moon has reached a climax.
With the continuous advancement of human space technology and the deepening of the exploration of the moon, few people now say that there are alien bases on the back of the moon. The reason for this is that there are more probes sent by humans to the moon. Through these probes, we basically have a comprehensive understanding of the moon.
Even on the back of the moon, my country’s Chang’e-4 successfully landed. The probe did not find anything mysterious and strange on the back of the moon. It is actually similar to the front, with some craters and craters. If so, does that mean that the moon has no secrets for mankind? of course not.
In fact, as scientists continue to deepen their research on lunar exploration, there is a problem that has always plagued us, and that is the origin of the moon. How did the moon become a satellite of the earth? As we said earlier, the mass of the moon is too big compared to the earth, so big that scientists feel incredible.
You know, other planets in the solar system have their own satellites except Venus, but the mass ratios of those satellites and the planets that they circled are basically above one-thousandth, and the mass of the moon is one-81th of that of the earth. . This is a very incredible data, not only in the solar system, even in other galaxies, we have not found such a planetary satellite mass ratio.
Through simulation theoretical calculations, it is very, very difficult for a celestial body as large as the moon to become a satellite of the earth, and the speed, angle, orbit, etc. must be very accurate. As long as there is a slight deviation, even if the moon can become a satellite of the earth, it will only be temporary.
Scientists have discovered through the study of the moon that it was formed 4 billion years ago, which means that it has been with the earth for more than 4 billion years. This is a very stable satellite. If the solar system is now a celestial body as large as the moon and all rush to the earth to become a satellite, then the probability of success is basically zero. It is difficult for scientists to make a celestial body of this mass circulate the earth stably for more than 4 billion years through simulation operations. It can be seen how incredible it is that the moon has become a satellite of the earth.
It is precisely because of the unthinkable that many people have guessed whether the moon is operated by advanced civilization behind it? Of course, we do not have any evidence to prove this. For scientists, it is more to believe that the moon was formed naturally, so how do scientists think the moon was formed?
For more than half a century, human beings have been exploring and researching the moon continuously, especially the study of lunar soil is relatively in-depth. Through research, it is found that the soil composition on the surface of the moon is very similar to that of the earth, so scientists boldly proposed a conjecture that the moon may have been part of the earth.
This is the theory of the origin of lunar collisions. Scientists have guessed a scenario like this: More than 4 billion years ago, in the chaotic solar system, a Mars-sized celestial body hit the earth on its side, and the big collision produced a large amount of dust debris. The dust fragments from the collision of the earth mixed with the dust fragments from the celestial body to form a planetary ring around the earth.
In this planetary ring, there is a fragment that is relatively large. This fragment relies on the advantage of mass and continuously absorbs the surrounding fragments through gravity. As its mass continues to increase, the fragments around the earth are absorbed by it, forming a comparison. The big moon. It may be precisely because it was gathered near the earth over a long period of time that its orbit can be continuously fine-tuned to become a stable satellite.
If the moon is formed naturally, then the impact theory proposed by scientists is the most likely. Otherwise, it is basically impossible for this kind of external massive celestial body to become a stable earth satellite. Of course, there is no definite evidence for this impact theory. To make it the truth, we still need to explore the moon more. Look for more evidence.
It is believed that with the continuous advancement of human technology and the establishment of a base on the moon, the days of mining on the moon are not far away. At that time, we were able to uncover the mystery of the origin of the moon through a large number of lunar minerals and more discoveries, whether it has anything to do with the earth. I believe there will be a clear answer soon.
