NASA Wants To Move The Earth And Destroy The Moon!!

Here are two hare brained (Or brilliant?) ideas from NASA! What else are they going to think of to prevent global warming? Probably destroy the Earth itself! No Earth – no warming! Jeeez!

Nuke The Moon!

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!

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."

Moving The Earth Farther Out!

As if blowing up the Moon wasn’t good enough, now NASA scientists are thinking of moving the Earth to an orbit farther away from the Sun in order to counter the affects of global warming!!

It would probably take another thousand years to perfect the technology to move the Earth and by that time most of Earth would have been fried anyway!! And not to mention the effects on other celestial bodies in the Solar System!

The Technology Involved For This Earth Shaking Maneuver

Robin McKie, science editor

Scientists have found an unusual way to prevent our planet overheating: move it to a cooler spot.

All you have to do is hurtle a few comets at Earth, and its orbit will be altered. Our world will then be sent spinning into a safer, colder part of the solar system.

This startling idea of improving our interplanetary neighborhood is the brainchild of a group of NASA engineers and American astronomers who say their plan could add another six billion years to the useful lifetime of our planet - effectively doubling its working life.

'The technology is not at all far-fetched,' said Dr Greg Laughlin, of the NASA Ames Research Center in California. 'It involves the same techniques that people now suggest could be used to deflect asteroids or comets heading towards Earth. We don't need raw power to move Earth, we just require delicacy of planning and maneuvering.'

The plan put forward by Dr Laughlin, and his colleagues Don Korycansky and Fred Adams, involves carefully directing a comet or asteroid so that it sweeps close past our planet and transfers some of its gravitational energy to Earth.

Earth's orbital speed would increase as a result and we would move to a higher orbit away from the Sun.

OK in theory. but the difficulties are mind boggling to say the least, due to the complexities of celestial mechanics.

And what happens to the Moon? Then there was Project Lucifer to light up Jupiter/Saturn to make another sun in order to terraform the outer planets! But that's another story.

Wouldn't moving the moon have some kind of catastrophic effect on our oceans and tide?
I don't see them mentioning that anywhere.

Why the heck not? I mean the moon was moved to the earths orbit... why not push it away??

BECAUSE IT'S INSANE!!! Think of it, logically, the tides would go out of sync, dogs & cats living together..... Judgement Day **judgement day**

Nice find again Mr Singh

this does not make me feel well. maybe I like the moon. I cannot imagine our night sky without it...
boo to the scientists. Find another way.

So it is true..sometimes the more schooling you get,the dumber you get..

Brainwashed is more like it. sheesh...I should go get a degree in stupid. I can come up with better ideas than blowing up the moon.

The moon is a distraction of what is happening here and now.

It just so happens we are now going back to the moon now?

Look around you, do not be deceived.

What the heck, go for it!!!
Wouldnt be surprised if our government goes for it.

My favorite part!

Just have a few comets hit the earth.

I'd assume big comets.

So instead of finding better energy, and all those other things, it'd be chosen easier to just beat the fk out of the earth with comets, screwing around with plate tectonics, volcanoes, the huge margin of error, dust clouds.

Then blowing up the moon, we've all seen Time Machine, it's not gonna happen. They freak out at CERN Hadron Collider, and that's just atoms hitting atoms!

I'm going to call bs. It doesn't seem plausible at all for someone in NASA to say something like this.

You sure it's not some kind of April Fool's joke???

Because, if not, then those 'scientists' should be forced to return whatever academic scrolls they currently hold, just for being so bloody stupid!!!

They're not saying "strike the Earth with an asteriod", they're saying if an asteroid came close enough, and on the correct side of the Earth through natural, or man-influenced means, we would swing a bit further away from the Sun in our orbit...

Jesus good lord, this is literally a madmans adivce and practice! Around when the dinosaurs were here, the moon was much closer to earth...and ide imagine the tides were on the aggressive side. Here is one more attmept, for man to cotnrol nature, and how things are supposed to wrk, not how HE wants it to work...the new world order, the large hauldron collider, and now bobmoing the moon, the moon for christ sakes! my god, is man a destructive species or what!
theri is NO atmosphere on the moon..thiers no potential for organisms or life to sustains itself thier, especially with solar flares and radiation coming fromt the sun! IS NASA tha bored, they wanna make a poweder puff form out from the moons surface or something? This is what, i dunno frankenstiens creator would have done, or maybe even Nicholai Telsa..nto to talk junk about Telsa he wa an amazing man, but eccentric as all hell yes...
Only real answer i can come up with, is maybe, NASA is nervous, or the CIA or nervous about those annomolies and buildings seen on the far side of the moon, and let us not forget the apolloa 15? images of taht cigar shaped ship in the crater.... maybe thiers some kinda secret threat or war going on?
I remember reading last year here, aout what appeared to be mining going on on hte moon, maybe the super rich people on this planet have ben strip mining it..maybe thier trying to elimaite evidnece IF it was true...
Somethings gong on up thier, causing this...i saw the post earlier, about in 1969 we sent men to the moon..and now its al talk and no play, kinda like their stalling....make ya wonder why the wait? whats the hold up?

Destroying the moon would totally screw up the earths whobble which would effect the seasons. Talk about screwing up a planet. And theoretically, how do you move the moon, or earth?

posted on Jun, 19 2009 @ 12:31 AM
Along with the tides mentioned by someone else, the earth would spin faster if the moon were gone since the moon slows the rotation of earth with it's gravity. There would be gale force winds on the surface of earth constantly. I imagine much shorter days would be another consequence. They can't possibly be serious about this.

And here I though Mr. Burns' attempt to block out the sun in Springfield entirely was a bit self indulgent. He was one step behind NASA!

Nuke the moon?

Didn't they ever watch "Thundarr the Barbarian"?

I don't want to have to fight wizards and reptilians.

I like it, instead of correcting the problem at source we do a quick fix. Sounds like human beings to me.

posted on Jun, 19 2009 @ 01:00 AM
The idea sounds interesting to me, although this won't really happen in our lifetimes so I won't be worrying about this too much.

On the bright side, them mentioning such ideas is an indicator that they are accepting the fact that "global warming" is not a man made phenomenon

Um, I am no scientist by any means, but I use the scientific method, and I got to say that any change in the moon's orbit would significantly change the gravitational forces presently on this planet. I know who Issac Newton is. I also know that tides are governed by the moon, I say Bad Idea Jeans.

If you would take away the Moon suddenly, it would change the global altitude of the ocean. Right now there is a distortion which is elongated around the equator, so if we didn’t have this effect, suddenly a lot of water would be redistributed toward the polar regions.

The Moon has been a stabilizing factor for the axis of rotation of the Earth. It has helped stabilize our planet so that its axis of rotation stays in the same direction. For this reason, we had much less climatic change than if the Earth had been alone. And this has changed the way life evolved on Earth, allowing for the emergence of more complex multi-cellular organisms.

The Moon has influenced biology in other ways as well. For species living near the coast, the tide is an important factor. When you look at the shorelines, you can recognize different layers of organisms that have adapted to the salt water conditions based on the ebb and flow of the tide.

And then there would be no more 'Moonlighting' or romance under a moonlit night! And that sucks!

Seems like a better alternative would be to live in outer space or leaver the earth....moving the earth is ridiculous !
