The “giant-impact hypothesis” explains the creating of the moon by a collision of the Earth by a large size rock named Theia. In the past, scientist explained that the rock Theia collided at an angle towards earth and vaporized Theia completely and part of Earth.

Some debris than collided back to Earth and some formed the Moon. Scientist
