There is no lack of gravity. The moon is being affected by the Gravity of the Earth and Sun, and also has its own Gravity.
ok , i meant it as a lack of gravity compared to our own - sorry
snip from site /
Suppose you weigh 100 pounds here on Earth. Would you like to know what you would weigh in different locations in space? Just look at this list.
Earth - 100 lbs
Moon - 17 lbs
Mercury - 38 lbs
Jupiter - 236 lbs
Pluto - 7 lbs
the sun - 2407 lbs
a white dwarf - 130,000,000 lbs
a neutron star - 14,000,000,000,000 lbs
in a spaceship far out in space - 0 lbs
now if an object of .5 miles across slammed into our moon at 30 000mph + it could project something out into space , the moon landers didnt hardly
need any thrust to get out of the atmosphere , a size of a small house total lander compared to the size of a block of heights rocket.
i do realise that most of the rock would be pulverised to dust but if rocks hit mars and send them to earth and there is a possibility that rocks from
earth have landed on mars then a large rock from the moon isnt out of the question is it.
i did say it was a long shot too by the way
