Jeeez! Or is there something more than meets the eye here? And what the heck happened to those promised Moon images? ISROs web site sucks! Or have they found something there and have been asked by the PTB to shut the heck up? Like JAXA, they'll probably take another couple of years to publish the images - enough time for completing their air brushing chores, what?

boooooooooooooooooooooooo

You suck India space agency - you could have become THE COUNTRY that exposed the cover-up/s on zee moon

Yet another example of sell outs.

This is a typical case of you-scratch-my-back-I'll-scratch-yours:

India to the US of A: Hey guys! You pull this nuke deal through congress and we'll promise to shut the heck up where those Moon bases are concerned!

US of A to India: Ok, Ok! You got it!

And the US of A finally got the nuke deal through! And India has STFU!

End of theory.

Cheers!

Hehehe not surprized here... with the gravity 'issues' presented by the moon they would not have lasted long at that lower orbit...

Don't want to say "told them so..." but

See? I told you so! There's gravity on the Moon!! But no one wants to believe it!
Jeeez!

It may be a shock to you, but everybody knows that there is gravity on the Moon.


As for a stronger gravity than the one presented by almost everybody that makes the calculations, it may be as true as a breathable Moon atmosphere, only speculation with very little (or even without) chances of being true.

Well you know where I stand on how much...
but your statement is false...

Here is that same question asked at a philosophy class at the University of Wisconsin, Madison (good science/engineering school)

Heavy Boots (The reason the Apollo astronots didn't just float away)

www.phys.ufl.edu...

If you're standing on the Moon holding a pen, and you let go, what will the pen do?


Haha, I stumbled this story before I answered the question. But being and engineering major I knew the answer in a heartbeat anyway...

Since the moon has it's own gravity, the pen would fall to the surface of the moon UNLESS it was thrown into space at the speed of the moon's escape velocity.


www.ask500people.com...




Physics 324 - Modern Physics for Engineers

"A body is at rest tends to stay at rest, plus there's no gravity"

"The gravity of the moon can be said to be negligible, and also the moon's a vacuum, there is no external force on the pen. Therefore it will float where it is."

"The pen will float away because the gravitational pull of the moon, being approximately 1/6 that of the earth, will not be enough to cause the pen to fall nor remain stationary where it is. The gravatational pull of other objects would influence the pen"

Physics 222 - Second Semester Calculus-based Introductory Physics

"Because moon has gravitation 1/6 of the gravitation of earth the force will be small toward the moon [so it will float away]"

Physics 221 - First Semester Calculus-based Introductory Physics

"It will fall to the earth by force of gravity and by the attraction between the earth and the moon"

"Because the gravitational pull of the moon is much weaker than that of the earth. And object such as a pen is so lite that it will float"

"Because there are no external forces if you let go [it will float where it is]

"External forces that are present on the moon will attract the pen. There isn't gravity on the moon as there is on earth so the pen won't drop."

"Since there is no gravity it will float and fall slowly. It will not fall like in the ground quickly because there is no gravity"

"The force of gravity on the moon is a fraction of the gravity on the earth, so the moon would not be able to attract the pen to inself. Rather, it would only be able to suspend the pen"

"It will eventually fall to the surface of the moon because of the slight gravitational field plus the moment of inertia about the moon. Also with angular momentum being conserved, it must fall. I=MR^2" [We were studying conservation of angular momentum when I gave this quiz]

"The pen will fall to the surface of the moon. As we let go we will introduce some initial enerty into the pen thus putting it in a forward downward motion. Since on the moon there is no force of resistance the pen will fall very slowly towards the surface"

"If you are standing on the moon holding a pen and you let go, it will float where it is. It will not fall to the surface of the moon because a gravitational force strong enough to cause this does not exist. In addition, the pen does not have a lot of external force on it, so it will not be likely to move"

"The pen will fall to the surface of the moon because the moon generates a gravitational field by rotating and the pen must act under this force".

Physics 111 - First semester Non-calculus Physics

"It will float where it is because there is no gravity force on the moon. Also, if you just let go there isno acceleration so it should just float where it is."

"There is no gravitational force on the moon, the pen therefore has no weight so its mass has no effect on 'where it goes'. Plus, you know, there is no wind to blow the pen up there! =)"



The rest ...

So it would seem not EVRYONE knows

Well John always said the gravity on farside was different than nearside...

seems he was right after all


Gravity on the Moon...

"Thus, the clear difference in gravity anomaly on the near side and the far side has been newly discovered and this fact brings a different story about the structure of the underground ..."

Blistering barnacles!!! Seems that our budding engineers and scientists are all over the place where Moon's gravity is concerned!! And then these are the same guys who when they get their degrees, propound theories that we're expected to believe just because of their exalted titles/status! 'Scientists'!!

Jeeez!

And here's another thread...

Thanks for reminding me that we should never underestimate the power of ignorance and lack of reasoning.

I have to be more careful with my statements.

Chandrayaan falters as ‘star sensors’ fail:

Hiding failures, eh!! But probably does not affect mission, as they put it:

Plan to prematurely end mission???

Notice how its unmanned. Which means that there has still been no-one there in decades since we left if Im not mistaken. Not to mention how most likely any photos taken will be altered just like NASA.

Why the moon, why now?

Seems fishy.

Well they built their whole mission to be around $90 million so I guess we cant expect their mission to do real well. You pay peanuts you get monkeys as they say!

On the other hand, it was a highly publicized mission compared to the much more sophisticated Kaguya mission that the Japanese space agency JAXA launched.

They have another mission the Chandrayan -II that they are building with the Russians. I imagine that would last a bit longer from the experience they have learnt this time around.

Obviously it is unmanned, do you expect people who dont have the ability to launch astronauts into low earth orbit to launch people into a two year mission to the Moon ??


Also, why exactly do you think they will the Indians alter pictures of the moon like Nasa ?? ( I'll forgo the obvious question as to why Nasa would hide something any kid with a decent reflector on a Dobsonian can see in his backyard ) Further more there have published numerous pictures on their website for the whole world to see, doesnt look like they are hiding something. Finally, the Japanese and the Chinese have both also released extensive images of the moon. To claim that ALL these nations are conspiring together would make an already crazy theory even more crazy.

Lastly, everybody seems to be interested in the Moon again these days because the Chinese, the Indians and the Japanese are in a small space racec of their own while NASA is working on a back to the Moon program in the near future. They already have an active probe orbiting the Moon at this time.

... and now it has abruptly failed. They have lost all communication with the satellite:

www.foxnews.com...

They said that it started to fail on April 29, when onboard star sensor for determining the craft's orientation began malfunctioning. Now, attempts to reestablish contact had failed and they say the mission is as good as lost.

LCROSS is not orbiting the moon. It's orbiting Earth.
