This compilation from a 1998 conference has several noteworthy chapters. It is the basis for our discussion of the origins of the moon and the wet magma ocean hypothesis. Written primarily for scientists working in this field, it’s a bit technical, but it does serve as a useful resource for anyone interested in the science of Earth’s origins.
