Terrestrial magma ocean origin of the Moon

The origin of the Moon is an important topic for both planetary scientists and geoscientists. The standard formation scenario of the Moon, viz., the giant impact scenario, has been tested by numerical simulations. However, recent high precision measurement of isotopic compositions for some materials pointed out a discrepancy between the results of numerical simulations. Here we found a possible scenario to resolve this isotopic puzzle.
