I wonder if they've ever found any of it on earth? It would help support the theory that the moon was originally a chunk of earth that got blasted off by a meteor hit or something.

Adam said...

They have found it on Earth, I guess it's easier to find something if you know what you're looking for.

DEZMOND said...

Was it really found? That is the question

I am still surprised that only the American and the Russians have put people on the moon. With the current technology this should be easy. Why is no one doing this?

Kind regards,
