Investigation of the initial state of the Moon-forming disk: Bridging SPH simulations and hydrostatic models
According to the standard giant impact hypothesis, the Moon formed from a partially vaporized disk generated by a collision between the proto-Earth and a Mars-sized impactor. The initial structure ofExpand

Melting and mixing states of the Earth’s mantle after the Moon-forming impact
The Earth's Moon is thought to have formed by an impact between the Earth and an impactor around 4.5 billion years ago. This impact could have been so energetic that it could have mixed andExpand

Origin of the Earth and Moon
According to the giant impact hypothesis, the Moon formed from a disk created by an impact between the proto-Earth and an impactor. Three major models for this hypothesis are (a) standard model: aExpand

Origin and Evolution of Water in the Moon's Interior
Nearly forty years after the return of the first lunar samples to Earth, improvements in laboratory detection limits made possible the first definitive discovery of magmatic water in lunar volcanicExpand

Impact-Induced Melting by Giant Impact Events
Large impact events have influenced the chemical and thermal evolution of the terrestrial planets [1]. The collision of a giant cosmic body with a proto-planet adds and/or removes material and heatsExpand

Near/Far Side Asymmetry in the Tidally Heated Moon.
Using viscoelastic mass spring model simulations to track heat distribution inside a tidally perturbed body, we measure the near/far side asymmetry of heating in the crust of a spin synchronous MoonExpand

Formation, stratification, and mixing of the cores of Earth and Venus
Abstract Earth possesses a persistent, internally-generated magnetic field, whereas no trace of a dynamo has been detected on Venus, at present or in the past, although a high surface temperature andExpand

Inefficient volatile loss from the Moon-forming disk: Reconciling the giant impact hypothesis and a wet Moon
The Earth's Moon is thought to have formed from a circumterrestrial disk generated by a giant impact between the proto-Earth and an impactor approximately 4.5 billion years ago. Since this impact wasExpand

Detection of muons and K: mesons from e+e- collisions using the endcap RPC module in the Belle Detector
The BELLE experiment at KEKB has collected beam collision data from 1 June through 4 August 1999, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 25 pb -1 , and the data contain approximately 10,000 e +Expand

Boulder stranding in ejecta launched by an impact generated seismic pulse
Abstract We consider how an impact generated seismic pulse affects the surface of an asteroid distant from the impact site. With laboratory experiments on dry polydisperse gravel mixtures, we trackExpand
