This Week's Program
Our guest speaker was Dr. Lars Borg, Cosmo-Chemist at LLNL, Cosmochemical & Isotopic Signatures group. His research interests include geochronology and geochemistry of samples from asteroids, the Moon, and Mars to constrain the nature and timing of processes occurring in the proto-planetary disk and planetary bodies early in the history of the solar system. He possesses a PhD from the University of Texas at Austin.  There are Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics (or models of the origins of our universe) The Origin and Evaluation of the Terrestrial Planets:  The Earth-Moon System.

4.5 billion years the earth has been evolving.  The moon was formed in the same way and time frame as the Earth, thus we have a lot to learn about the Earth from the Moon.

From giant impact to formation of a debris ring, the accretion of the Moon and the formation of Magma Ocean, finally the solidification of the Magma Ocean.

The Moon is one of the largest bodies circling a relatively small body in our universe.

By dating the material from the moon they can determine the age of the moon.

The Moon is about 4.37 M years old, so the Moon & Earth formed late in the formation of our Universe
