Caption: Origin of the Moon. Computer artwork showing a Mars-sized body (centre) impacting with the Earth. An impact such as this would have caused a huge amount of debris to be ejected into space. It is thought that a large amount of this debris began orbiting the Earth and eventually condensed to form the Moon.
