Wouldn't it be awesome if the moon suddenly disappeared?

    I know tides would be seriously affected and we'd probably die from some disastrous consequence or something rather, but at least it's a cool concept to think about!

    My original thought was actually 'wouldn't it be awesome if the moon suddenly exploded' but apparently we'd just die from all the chunks of rocks crushing us to death...b-o-r-i-n-g!

    Actually the moon is what anchors the earth at it's approximate 23 degrees. It keeps our climate relatively stable and allows life. Without the moon the earth would wobble all over and life would become, er difficult. To say tides would be affected would be an understatement. The moon pulls the oceans and without it, the bulge of the oceans will dissipate and spread out and flood most major coastal areas.
    Not exactly cool, if you want to live here icon_eek.gif

    Yeah, I was surprised when I learned years ago that the moon stabilizes the tilt of the Earth's axis. Without it the poles would be constantly migrating, frequently altering the weather in catastrophic ways.

    The north & south ice covers would be forever changing location, and rapidly, presenting a challenge to maintaining stable civilization. Little humans did or built would have much permanence. And animals, being less quickly adaptable to such changes than humans with our technology. would likely suffer mass extinctions and greatly diminished numbers.

    You know thats a pretty strange idea.

    We ought to be glad for our moon, luna. There probably aren't that many planets around that can boast that their moon is 1/4 the primary's size.
    We are almost a double planet. Would you rather have a couple of chunks of rock (Like Phobos & Deimos from Mars) floating around us.... or be like
    Venus and Mercury and have nothing? What about the Jovian planets... they have huge numbers of moons, but nothing to compare with our moon..
    in size as compared with its primary.. (albeit with Titan, thats a very interesting place with an atmosphere, etc and Io and Europa). The only thing that could improve here is if our moon had an atmosphere. We can't have everything.

    So when you are thinking about this..... you should be thinking how awesome it is to have "moonlight". That doesn't happen much elsewhere... or things like a solar eclipse.. which probably happens in a very, very small percentage of places elsewhere. We are lucky to have the moon. It also
    is responsible for some of the dynamics here on this planet.

    Okay, Kansan....I'm just going to say it. With each new "seasonally appropriate" profile pic, it becomes increasingly obvious that you need to do a calendar. you just do. Taking orders.....

    I agree. Maybe we can talk to RJ about that calendar. The least they could do is mention in that weekly email when he posts new photos. Chris has the best pics and I think this new one is making us all want to take a swim.

    Noooo I like the moon.. Esp when it's a clear summer night and the moon keeps everything dimly illuminated. I don't live in a city so those of you that do may not notice as much since you have all the city lights, but around here it'd be pitch black! icon_eek.gif

    Try this experiment.Drill a 1 1/2 wide,six inch deep hole into the top of a ten pound wheel of chedder cheese.Insert one m-60 firecracker with an elongated fuse.Wait until dark,get stoned,put your safety glasses on and hold the wheel of cheese up as high as you can.Have a friend light the fuse and then film it for us.
    Totally awesome.

    That is so not true, I have seen Despicable Me and Earth was pretty stable after Moon was stolen. icon_biggrin.gif
