I'm laughing at myself... I was sure you had started a thread to debunk an astrological "impact" of the moon... and I was sooooo wrong!!! However, I had said that if someone started one I would comment so I was going to live up to my word.

This is really cool too though -- thank you! And I'll leave you this:

Not sure what an impact on the Moon has to do with astrology but Shoemaker-Levy did indeed hammer Jupiter.

Also a wonderful demonstration of the tidal destruction of a body which passed the Roche limit.

So let me get this straight...

The Moon didn't get hammered in the nuts. It got hammered by some nuts.

I'd be careful about anything NASA says. Just watched this video about how they doctor and edit most of their lunar shots.




This has nothing to do with NASA. The MIDAS system was conceived, designed and built in Spain.

The Moon got hammered. Two impacts were recorded by MIDAS on one day.

Hey Phage! Always a pleasure to talk to you. What's your take on the recent remarks that most of the craters... at least in appearance...seemingly are of the same relative depths?

Some fairly outlandish opinions on the implications that it's just a uniform "skin" on a "hollow" moon are being tossed around

Thanks for your thoughts... MS

By "same relative depths" do you mean depth/diameter? They aren't. Smaller craters are relatively shallower than larger craters (lower d/D ratio). Which makes sense.

Inredible that a wallnut-sized rock can release so much energy upon impact. Future manned lunar bases have to really watch out.

I wonder what size craters were left by these two impacts? If it's about 1 meter or more in diameter, LRO might just be able to see them. LRO's typical resolution is 0.5 m/pixel.

Here's one "before and after" view of a fresh impact by LRO:

Apparently Apollo 11 saw something NASA and the government don't want us to see and altered the moon landing photos. Intriguing, do you guys think it's true?


Wow I had never considered that before! Thank you for introducing me to this new and exciting line of thought! Please show me where I can learn more about this cutting edge research!

The meteors were the size of walnuts. Really interesting-hope we can see the size of the craters impacts left behind sometime.


Current estimates suggest these two impacting 'meteoroids'—fragments of asteroids and comets—were both about the size of a walnut.

That's what happened to my "walnuts"... (note to self: wear a cup next time you go on a blind date with an ATS girl. They ARE fiesty...)

Yes these walnuts contain/possess much power within...

But seriously I wonder how fast they were going?


Twice the speed of light like SpaceX? (joke)

Yes, these are the fastest wallnuts in the Solar System!
