Earth History and Palaeogeography   

Front Picture: The most popular explanation for the origin of the Moon, the ‘Giant Impact Hypothesis’ or the ‘Moon Forming Event’, is that it resulted from debris after collision of Earth with a Mars-sized proto-planet. The Moon was very close the Earth when it formed and has later travelled away from the Earth. Photo Credit: Steve A. Munsinger/Science Source
