  • The giant impact hypothesis for the origin of the Moon has been widely accepted. One of the most important features of this hypothesis is that the impactor's metallic core was incorporated in the Earth after impact. If the mass of the impactor is 0.82 × 1027 g, the mass of the impactor core was estimated to be 0.19 × 1027 g, which is about 1/10 of present Earth's core. Liu (1982) derived the bulk composition of the Earth from CI chondrites, and concluded that the Fe content of his model appears… CONTINUE READING
