Why do we have a moon?


Question asked by: knowitall

Why do we have a moon is an interesting question... the answer is due to the matter in the solar system and the laws of physics.

These combined to mean that gravitational forces caused large clumps of matter to come together, forming the earth.

Then at some stage in the past either the moon was a piece of rock that was captured by earths gravity, or alternatively an impact blasted some matter off the earth and combined to form the moon.

This is why we have the moon, due to the laws of physics and the matter that was around and how it interacted over millions of years in the formation of our solar system in its more primitive stages.
