Did Earth steal its moon from Venus? Controversial new theory suggests Earth pulled the planet's moon away and into our orbit

Post  wyatt1 on Mon Sep 30, 2013 4:37 pm

Earth has one moon, Uranus has 27 and and Saturn has over 50. Venus, however, has none.
A wild new theory presented at a Royal Society conference is claiming that Earth may have stolen its only moon from Venus.
The theory, put forward by a Caltech University professor, suggests that Earth pulled Venus's moon out of Venus' orbit and into our own.

if tony blair had still been in power the apology would already have been sent, preferably in person on the surface of venus without a pressuresuit.

the problem as I see it is that earth is between 25million and 160million miles away from venus so not sure how it would have a greater influence on venus's moon than venus would. would the earth be massive enough to exert such a large gravitational pull to strip a moon from venus?
If anything is likely to strip its moon it would be the sun which is only 3 times as far away and a hugely larger mass
