Geochemists from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) have reported that the moon was formed by a colossal collision between the Earth and a "planetary embryo" called Theia roughly 100 million years after the Earth formed. The chemical signature of the rocks' oxygen atoms revealed the key to reconstructing the collision. Using cutting-edge technology like UCLA's new mass spectrometer, the team meticulously calculated and measured the compositions of the rock samples and found that the oxygen isotopes from the moon were indistinguishable from the oxygen isotopes from Earth.
