Scientists have unraveled one of the mysteries of the moon
The French scientists found out why the moon's orbit is tilted relative to the plane of Earth's orbit at 5 degrees. This question had long been one of the major mysteries of the earth satellite.

As they say in the article, published in the journal Nature, astrophysicists from the Institute of the cцЄte d'azur in nice created a computer model of the evolution of the earth and the moon. According to their doctrine, the unusual inclination of the rotation axis of the moon relative to the plane of Earth's orbit can be explained by the fact that in the last the companion of our planet fell under the "evil influence" of large proto-planets.

Colliding with our planet of the celestial body not only made the distortions in the orbit of the moon but also presented the Land of gold and other noble alloys. How to convince the French scientists, our planet is bombarded not a large number of fairly small asteroids, as previously thought, and a small number of larger protoplanetary bodies, is comparable in volume with the Moon.

Calculations of astrophysicists demonstrate that the proto-planet is"zolotovo" fall on the Earth's surface is not immediately after convergence of the system Earth-Moon, they spent 10's thousand of years, more and more closely approaching to our planet. Data convergence significantly influenced the position of the moon in orbit, forcing it to move "up" or "down" relatively to the plane of the equator of the Earth, where previously the companion of our planet.

Over time, after several similar encounters and conflicts, the Moon slowly returned to his seat, but took a slightly shifted position - its orbit is bent approximately 10 degrees with respect to the Ecliptic plane. As a result, 2 things happened - the Earth got its gold reserves, which the population of the earth now enjoys, and the Moon has shifted in such a way that total solar eclipses do not occur every 30 days, and markedly less often.
