I ask this question in response to the numerous threads we see started about alien bases on planets, especially the moon.
It seems that every time a natural feature with a straight(ish) line on one or more side of it appears, it gets classed as a base of some kind. You
only have to search for natural wonders here on earth to see that our planet has evolved into so many amazing shapes, especially rock formations.
Nothing alien or manmade about them, just Mother Nature being artistic. I realise that there are factors like wind and water here on earth that can
affect the shape of things that as far as we know, don't occur on the moon, but the shapes that we see on the moon have occurred naturaly in their
own way so far.
So the space junk question. In the same way that space debris like asteroids and whatever else is flying around up there can crash into planets now
and again, hence the impact craters, does than mean there is no reason why things like man made material can't hit the moon as well?
I'm picturing the larger things like satellites and the likes, could some of the things we see just be bits of our rubbish? Possibly crash landed and
buried in all that dust up there, yet leaving traces of outlines that can be seen on camera?
I don't know enough about the way gravity works up there on and away from the moon to know whether my question is even valid, but i thought i'd put
it out there to those who know more.
