Okay, I'm curious. The prevailing theory on the creation of the moon as I understand it is that a Mars-sized object slammed into the earth knocking a huge chunk off that eventually formed into the moon. My question is what happened to that object after the impact. Was it completely destroyed or did it go skittering off or what? If it went skittering off, what became of it if known?
