D'oh!

The moon is not shrinking!
This is ATS.. Don't we all know that the moon is a giant spaceship?
It is simply engaging its engines and leaving Earths orbit. Hence, making it appear as if it's shrinking.

Just kidding.


Seriously, what the hell. lol

I observe the moon nightly...
and haven't seen any indication of it "shrinking". lol


Funny thread.

I call shenanigans.

The moon is shrinking, say scientists


Astronomers have declared that the moon is shrinking after spotting wrinkles all over the lunar surface. The tell-tale contraction marks were discovered by US scientists who examined thousands of photographs of the moon's surface taken by a Nasa orbiter.

The silliest thing about this thread is that the ridiculous article the OP linked to didn't even mention 2012!

I assume that this is a joke thread? Please, someone tell me that it is. For the sake of humanity's future.

While the premise that the moon will be gone by next year is...mildly...ridiculous, it would behoove all of us to realize that the article DOES also link to an August 2010 NASA article confirming the moon has apparently reduced in size previously and may still be doing so.

Where the article mentioned lobate scarps, it links to the NASA article here, entitled "NASA'S LRO Reveals 'Incredible Shrinking Moon'":


Newly discovered cliffs in the lunar crust indicate the moon shrank globally in the geologically recent past and might still be shrinking today, according to a team analyzing new images from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft. The results provide important clues to the moon's recent geologic and tectonic evolution...

"Based on the size of the scarps, we estimate the distance between the moon's center and its surface shrank by about 300 feet," said Watters, lead author of a paper on this research appearing in Science August 20.


The Weekly World Inquisitor just gave a true story a silly spin.

Here's the link to the actual NASA article discussing the shrinking moon.

OP's source just went somewhat overboard with it (it IS a tabloid, I guess...), but it's based in reality.

I also heard somewhere, long ago, that the moon is actually moving an inch away from the Earth every year! Sorry, no links!

TalkOrigins.org has an article on lunar recession with sources here - looks like 3.8cm annually.

Thanks!

I would not consider the weekly World Inquisitor to be a good news source. i mean they have this blockbuster story posted too. "Obama birth certificate found - he's Chinese!!

So i would say BS on the incredible shrinking moon hypothesis.
