Earth Had Two Moons That Crashed to Form One
It’s another one of those newfangled scientific theories and discoveries that completely negates everything that elementary school has taught me (Hey public education system, please refund the money that I paid you to teach me crud about Pluto being a planet!).

According to a new study, a tiny second moon may have orbited Earth in the past, before catastrophically slamming into its bigger brother, resulting in an intergalactic smackdown that explains why the two sides of our moon are so different from each other.

According to the study, the smaller moon would have been about 750 miles wide and could have been formed from the same collision between the planet and a Mars-sized object that scientists suspect helped create the moon we see in the sky today, astronomer said.
