The solar system might once have had another planet named Theia, which may have helped create our own planet's moon.

Now two spacecrafts are heading out to search for leftovers from this rumored sibling, which would have been destroyed when the solar system was still young.

"It's a hypothetical world.We've never actually seen it, but some researchers believe it existed 4.5 billion years ago — and that it collided with Earth to form the moon," said Mike Kaiser, a NASA scientist at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.

Theia is thought to have been about Mars-sized.

I have know that theory for quite some time now, but this is the first time I've heard that they've sent probes to search for it.

Quick, run before the Nibiruists get here. =P

Interesting theory, though -- the Earth seems to have had a fascinating history, right from its birth.

It amazes me that such a collision could take place and good old Earth wouldn't be bumped into, well, outer space! Take that you evil twin sister!

Interesting. So they are not looking for a planet, they are looking for debris, and not expecting much of that.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

That's unrelated, Theia was a hypothetical proto-planet that followed the Earth's orbit and collided with it, with the remnants forming the moon.

Never heard of that one personally. Well, if indeed there was a collision, have they found evidence on Earth itself to believe this is the case? I'd love to read about it.
