Verse is a podcast for those hungry for a deeper understanding of nature, unsatisfied by the surface skimming of most popular science education.


Verse 2

The tale of the Birth of the Moon.

Here we focus on the recent simulation-driven discovery of a new astrophysical object, called a Synestia. 

Though discovered while investigating the formation of the moon, Synestias may occur in other solar systems, as Professor Sarah Stewart of the University of California at Davis tells us.

We cover lunar giant impact formation theory, lunar tidal evolution, and the "chemical fingerprints" you can use to determine the chemical composition of the moon, the earth, and other planets (and how we link the formation of planets together, using those fingerprints!)

For additional information, head to the Verse YouTube channel, for videos about the topic, or the Verse Patreon for a breakdown of the research!
