Scientists at Durham University believe that the Earth may have lost up to 60% of its atmosphere in a collision that led to the formation of the moon more than four billion years ago.The team said the results, which were published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, could be used by astronomers trying to learn more about the moon, which is believed to have formed after a collision of a Martian-sized rock with Earth.

The researchers looked at the ways in which the planet’s atmosphere could be altered by objects of different size and mass that affect different angles and velocities, and the simulations revealed that the Earth had lost between 10-60% of its atmosphere in the collision as the moon appeared to exist.

“This major group of planetary simulations also highlights the role of influences in the evolution of exoplanets like Earth,” said co-author Dr. Louis Teodoro of the University of Glasgow’s School of Physics and Astronomy.
