we were wrong.

Some of my favorite articles begin with "we were wrong..." 

One of my more recent favorites was about the moon, and where it came from. 

We were wrong

It wasn't a surface collision from a Mars-sized body and Earth it was more like a massive collision that nearly vaporized Earth some akin to "a sledgehammer and a watermelon". 

Two things:

1. We are still wrong about all kinds of things. I am wrong and so are you.

Tread lightly. 

2. That big beautiful orb in the sky at night came from great destruction. 

Beauty finds a way. 



(Bonus recent wrong: Giraffes are actually four different species.)
