The actual age of the Moon was revealed

Scientists reveal the age of the Moon is now 4.51 billion years old. The age of the Earth's satellite obtained by the geological clock that newly discovered the time measurement technique.

The theory of the formation of the Moon, according to scientists' understanding, occurs when there is space objects of Mars crashed into the Earth and then broke into pieces. And the Moon is one of the pieces of the space object which then orbit the Earth.

The time of the collision debated between 30 to 100 million years after the solar system formed. Own solar system formed 4.6 billion years ago.

Today, scientists from the United States, Germany, and France collaborated to find a geological clock that can be used to measure time. The researchers used a computer simulation of the development of 259 Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. From the development of the four planets that scientists get answers from the puzzle when the formation of the Moon.

When analyzed, researchers found a link between when the Earth was hit and the amount of material increases after the incident. This relationship, according to scientists, seemed like hours until the date of the formation of the Moon. And it is called a geological clock first in the history of the solar system.

"We were gobsmacked to find 'hours' of time the formation of the Moon that does not rely on radiometric dating methods," said the head of research Seth Jacobson of The Observatory de la Cote d'Azur, Nice, France.

The geochemistry of the size, making the formation of a new calendar month ranged 95 million years after the solar system. With an error margin of 32 to 39 million years. And the solar system is believed to be 4.6 billion years ago. This means that the Moon formed about 4.51 billion years ago, as quoted from Daily Mail, on Friday, April 4, 2014.
