It's a bit of a worry when the news item in question on a website is quoting a newspaper which is in turn quoting another newspaper.
But is there anything to the statements in the article?There is no evidence to support a popular theory of how the moon came into existence, according to a new study.
Britain's Daily Mail reports many scientists believe a space rock called Theia collided with Earth more than four billion years ago, sending a clump of material into space to create the moon.
However, the tabloid reports a new study finds no evidence Theia existed.
The study reportedly found no trace of Theia in rocks from the moon, leaving scientists baffled about how the moon separated from Earth.
