Once a young man named Lusin (Armenian: moon; Lusin symbolized the Moon) asked his mother for a bun (the mother symbolized the Earth). The angry mother slapped him, sending him flying to the heaven. There are still traces of dough (lunar craters) on Lusin’s face.
This is a striking representation of cosmic life-giving in an artistic language. A nuclear reactor exploded (the slap of the mother) in the center of the earth.
The birth of the Moon, and the ancient Armenian legend
A new hypothesis about the origin of the Moon emerged. Dutch scientists believe that the Earth has acquired its natural satellite 4.5 billion years ago after the explosion of a giant nuclear reactor of natural origin in the depths of the planet.
The fact that the Moon consists of the same material as Earth became known after American astronauts brought soil samples from the satellite. If the Moon had formed elsewhere in the Solar System, its radioisotope composition would be different from that of the Earth.
Therefore, the generally accepted hypothesis is the “earthly” origin of the Moon. However, scientists argue about how exactly it happened. There have been proposed three main hypotheses so far.
According to the first, the young Earth rotated so fast that the growth of its mass from catching comets and asteroids resulted in the projection of material into the Moon’s orbit.
According to the second hypothesis, the satellite formed after the impact of a large Mars-sized celestial body with the Earth.
And the third hypothesis proposes that the Moon and Earth formed simultaneously from the multitude of asteroids and meteorites orbiting the young Earth.
After studying the results of a computer simulation, a group of researchers from the University of Amsterdam proposed the fourth hypothesis.
Dutch scientists believe that the Moon formed as a result of the explosion of a giant nuclear reactor that runs inside the planet. The results of the study were published in the “New Scientist” magazine.
“A nuclear explosion is the only event that could have released such a mass of matter in a short time. Only a powerful explosion could not only separate material from the Earth but also project it far enough so it doesn’t fall back on the planet,” said Wim van Westenen, the head of the research team.
The amount of energy produced by the explosion is estimated to have been equal to the energy of about 40 billion bombs “Little Boy” dropped on Hiroshima.
The hypothesis that a natural reactor is running inside the Earth is not new. It explains quite well why our planet emits more energy than it receives from the sun.
This hypothesis is supported by the discovery of several extinct natural reactors that are just several meters in size.
