Have you seen the moon's surface lately? The moon has more than
its fair share of being hit by comets asteriods and meteorites.
Many asteroids have hit the moon. That's why it's covered in craters.
No. The moon is large enough that even a collision with the solar system's largest asteroid would not destroy it.
No. Occasionally an asteroid is knocked out of the asteroid belt and some of those asteroids eventually hit Earth, but the asteroid belt as a whole will not hit us.
An asteroid had hit Earth and knocked of a chunk that is now called the moon.
if a meteor hit earth and a piece of earth (the moon) chipped off. earths gravitational pull could be sufficient to make the moon orbit around the earth.
No. An asteroid can get captured by an asteroid and become a moon, but not the moon. Our moon is too large to be considered an asteroid.
Our moon is not in the asteroid belt. No planet's moon is in the asteroid belt or it would not be a moon.
The Moon is not an asteroid, it is a natural satellite or just a moon.
yes but that would add energy to the moon's orbit
No telling. It could hit anywhere.
U.S. astronomers said the giant asteroid could hit the earth in 2014.
An asteroid might hit at any moment. There is no reason to believe that an asteroid will hit any time soon, though.
An asteroid will hit the Earth, it is only a question of when. Astronomers are always tracking near earth asteroids, but we currently have no way to prevent an asteroid impact.
If the moon were to be struck with significant force, such as by a very large asteroid or meteor, it could be destroyed.
A giant asteroid hit the earth and a piece broke off and stayed in the earths orbit and so became the moon.
