ABSTRACT

Starting from the recently proposed hypothesis [1] on the Moon formation from the
ejection of terrestrial mantle material in a heat-propelled jet, triggered by a run-away
natural georeactor at Earth’s core-mantle boundary, we estimate the energy losses in the
Earth-Moon system, develop dynamics of this process and compare produced value of
the heat with known estimations for heat produced by heavy radionuclides fusion in the
Earth body. We conclude that the values of heat produced in these two processes are
comparable in long-time scale, rather than in short-time scale. Therefore these
differences should be taken into account when considering the early evolution of the
Earth. We propose a possible direct test of the hypothesis proposed in [1].

Keywords: Moon formation, energy and angular momentum of the Earth-Moon system, nuclear reactions, tidal friction.
