Professor Alexander Abian, a mathematician at the University of Iowa says it's the only way to rid the world of scorching heat and arctic winters!

He wants to blow up the moon - or at least send it somewhere else! Oh man! Do we have a hare brain scientist here?


He claims that by getting rid of the moon, the Earth will then be able to shift into a "more desirable orbit."

He suggests strategically placed hydrogen bombs on the Earth's satellite can either blow it apart, or send it careening into outer space, maybe even into the sun. It all depends where you put the charges, he says. "We've been held hostage by the moon for 5 million years, and we've been subjected to violent extremes in weather, not to mention that the planet is slowly becoming a desert."


Earlier NASA had planned to move the Earth!! Here..
And now, this!!

Never a dull moment, what?

Cheers!!

this has to be one of the stupidest things i've ever read. we really don't know what we could be getting ourselves into. the moon is there and always has been since humans existed, why move it now? why risk the catastrophic events that can and in fact will happen if the moon is moved?

if there would be no more high and low tide - where would the oceans rest?

Don't we love what scientists come up with.

It'll give the Werewolves a chance to migrate back into society, hahaha.


Seriously though. All life has evolved due to the moon's orbit. Even women's menstrual cycles loosely follow the moon, and I doubt that's a coincidence. Is this what is referred to as a 'MAD SCIENTIST'? Cooking crazy schemes, and unleashing them upon humanity? He's nuts!

Very few scientists would actually ever even consider such a thing, and
beyond that, I doubt we could move the moon, or even totally destroy
it at our current technology level, Hydrogen bombs or not.

As has been said, nature follws the moon, and would be severely dirup-
ted if it were not there.

Also, the moon has been around for more than a mere 5million years
asthis so called 'scientist' says, the moon has been around since shortly
after the Earth formed, some four billion years ago.


Oh, and another two things.

1. The moon is actually moving away from us, albeit at a snails pace of
something like an inch a year.
2. The moon is what keeps the Earth spinning, and without it, the planet
would become tidally locked, with one side always facing the sun, and the
other always in darkness.

Well, he's certainly gotten lively after his death, then. He died in 1999:

This may be another Internet Hoax... see SNOPES:

He was a well-known crackpot with absurd ideas

This is the nutball who was all about aligning Earth with Venus. His nutty self used to always be all over UseNet.


Like Byrd said, he's dead.

For some strange reason those theories of his still live. :shk:

Oh darn!! So no more entertainment??

We need scientists like him AND organizations like NASA which has plans to move the goddamn Earth!!


Otherwise life will be pretty dull!


Cheers!

I wouldnt confuse this guy with a scientist. He's a nut job, and I can guarantee you he either never was recognized by the scientific community, or they have just rejected all standing as a scientist for these claims.

I understand it would stabalize ocean levels... and it may also stabalize some weather patterns... but the moon is absolutely essential for the survival of our planet, at least until we can find something else to divert asteroids away from our orbital path.

from the "article":


"We've been held hostage by the moon for 5 million years, and we've been subjected to violent extremes in weather, not to mention that the planet is slowly becoming a desert."


Well last I looked, the moon had been there for 5 billion years, so this loses any credibility it had, IMO.


Now, where did i put some sort of device that could blow up the moon? Some sort of death star should do it...

Scientists scare me more and more on a daily basis. This type of stuff is constantly in the news and these are supposed to be the people we listen to? This is a good example why we need to closely examine the theories of our scientists. I am more afraid of scientists than global warming.

This "scientist" (and I use that term loosley) is a FREAKING IDIOT. How did he ever get a degree in anything? If you take out the moon, the Earth will tilt way over on it's side. Almost completely horizontal. That would make one side of the earth really really hot and the other really cold. The temperature difference would be much greater... and the main cause of storms is the... temperature difference. The weather would be much much worse if we had no moon. Well at least at the 'equator' between the hot and cold areas. In the polar regions the storms would be really light to non-existant. (By the way, how does our moon affect the global warming on the other planets which is going on now?)

Wow, what a nutjob. That would screw way too much up, but it would atleast curb werewolf incidents.

Okay, bad joke. I know...

I know this story is pretty much history but just goes to show you the kind of people our government put into colleges and schools every where in this nation. I really hope that one day our government will no longer be in charge of our schools and colleges and that competition in the private sector will be the norm. Blow up the moon

I think his MENTAL health should need some Stabilizing as well.

Blowing the Moon away is probably the Most Stupidest Idea ever.

Since we are actually "dancing" with Moon and She is slowly moving away from us, and when "somebody smart" destroys it, our rotaton shall change.

I think we should send him to the moon - without explosives - and leave him there, so that he learns to respect our dance partner.

I did a bit of a search and not one article mentioned that we would be smacked with more asteroids if we had no moon.

The moon doesnt keep the earth spinning, in fact we spin slower because of it. If we had no moon we would spin faster, which would probably mean faster winds.

Life has evolved despite the moons orbit.

source

The current "favorite" location for the formation of the earliest life is somewhere deep in the oceans, near a hydrothermal vent.

Unfortunately at this time we dont know all the variables that make this planet tick the way it does for us. Is the moon an important part of that process? Its possible. My concern would be the lack of stablized wobble with the Earth, and seasons having nothing to do with time of year but of latitude on the Earth.

source

The Earth may have started off with a rotation axis pointing almost perpendicular to the plane of the solar system, rather than canted at 23.5 degrees as it is now. Without this tilt, the rays from the Sun would always strike the Earth's surface at a fixed angle every day of the year. At the Earth's equator, the Sun's rays would always be perpendicular to the ground all year long. At a latitude of 45 degrees, they would strike the ground at 45 degrees every day, and at the North and South Poles, the Sun would never make it above the horizon.

No, this wouldnt happen, not one article that I read said this would happen. As I said before, the Earth would speed up, as it is the Earth is slowing down and the moon is pulling away from us.

This man may be dead but his thoughts are still floating around and that's scary in itself.

Let me bring this to attention. Let's say our Moon was put in the orbit it is in now by others (aliens) and they are within the Moon do you think they would let anyone move or destroy it, I don't think so.

These beings monitor everything they won't let us destroy this planet either.
