Yes. Many billions of years ago, a large celestial body, bigger than Mars struck the young Earth at an angle and vaporized a large portion of both. After a time, the leftover pieces formed into moonlets and then the moonlets into the final moon that we see today.
It has been suggested that a planet called Nibiru, which orbits the Sun in the opposite direction to the other planets and takes several thousand years to complete it orbit, hit a planet. The result is the Earth and the Moon. On a previous orbit it is supposed to have struck a different planet and the result of that is the Asteroid ring. I do not know if this is true but the ancient Sumarians wrote of this and said they had been visited by the inhabitants of Nibiru, the Annunaki. This is why some fear a return of Nibiru and wonder if this is what the Maya anticipate in their calender. Hope this is of help.
At one time the earth and the moon were one body, much softer than either is now-being much hotter-and spinning much faster. The rate at which it spun made it fly into two parts. The smaller became the moon, and the larger the earth.

My son thinks so, and now I'm beginning to think it could be true - has this theory already been considered? I mean, it's impossible to know what the sun is really made of...all we know for sure, is that its still...
