<P>&gt;The theory states that, about 50 million years after the birth of the solar system,<BR>&gt;a planet of the size of Mars -- called Theia after the mother of the Greek moon goddess, &gt;Selene -- collided with the proto-earth. At this time the earth was in the latter stages of its &gt;formation and had about 90% of the mass it has today</P>
<P>Where did the otehr 10% come from?</P>
<P>Thanks you</P>
