i agree that the moons mass will not change the distribution of mass will. im sure this will have some effects that we don't realize yet.

As much an amateur astronomer i am...who really cares. I mean, as humans, weve shown we cant even take care of eacother, let alone resorting to violence.
The moon controls the tides, as we all know. it is moving away form us. An old space magazine book i found that was my fathers, dated 1959, says the moon is moving away, and in about 800,000 years, earths gravity will pull it back in. Tidal forces with earth's gravity will break up and shatter the moon, therfore creating a ring* around earth.
I heard this same thing on discovery or history channel years ago. dunno how true it is.
The moral is..who really cares whats happens when the moon is so far away, we wont have tides anymore. we prob wont even survive as a species,t he rate we are going.
