    A little while ago there was some bizarre OT discussion of moon origins theories. Here's an update.

    That's the abstract. Full article here: http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/3/1/e1602365

    This was published days after a Nature publication about the moon resulting from accretion, which was computer-model tested. It turned out to be viable, but the data have been updated now.
