If the moon was the same distance from earth as the ISS.. fascinating video clip

There would be no excuse as to why we could not go back to the moon, maybe having humans living there. The down side is that the days and nights would be a lot shorter, and we would have a lot harder weather to deal with.

How can you be so sure there would be tidal waves?

Remember....science is not an exact science especially when they are trying to get funded.

There wouldn't be any humans if the moon was that close.

I can't help but wonder what it would look like if Uranus orbited that close. It would probably be pretty crappy.

Sorry...couldn't help myself

Would probably be able to see the US flag if it was there ..or not


You'd still need something on the order of the hubble telescope to see it though. As well, the moon would appear much brighter as more of the light reflecting off the surface of the moon from the sun would be hitting the earth.

You may not be able to make out much even with that great telescope.

No, it was NOT this close billions of years ago, they are still not sure where the moon came from only that it is older than the earth, the best guess it it was captured by the earth and slowly stabilized to the orbit it is in now, it wouldn't have been captured as close as the ISS as it would have been in an elliptical orbit and if it was that close it would have been pulled in by earths gravity.
Millions of years ago if you were on earth it would have appeared larger as it is slowly moving out but NEVER was it as close as you are thinking. Physics don't lie.
It is not easy to estimate how far away from the Earth the Moon was when it formed, but simulations suggest is was about 3-5 times the radius of the Earth, or about 19-30 thousand km. The Moon is currently about 384,000 km away from Earth or 3-4 thousand times further away than this.
The exact rate of the Moon's movement away from Earth has varied a lot over time. It depends both on the distance between the Earth and the Moon, and the exact shape of the Earth. The details of continents and oceans moving around on Earth actually change the rate, which make it a very hard thing to estimate. The rate is currently slowing down slightly, and it is estimated that in about 15 billion years the Moon's orbit will stop increasing in size.

It's actually quite a weird object, our moon.

So, maybe Butler has it right and.. we have to travel back into time to create the moon ourselves!

Are we really suggesting that someone or something came along 4.6 billion years ago and 'manufactured' the Moon from surface material taken from the Earth? We are, and when 'all' the evidence is taken into account this is the most reasonable explanation. It may sound odd, it might even appear mad, but using Occum's razor it is the most likely scenario. See Butlers site.

Kaboose

These facts among several other facts, tell us that the earth and universe is not billions of years old



Erm yes it is.

Tracking of EM radiation througout the universe says so.


Doesnt mean there isnt a god.

Just means creation started billions of years ago, not 6000 years ago.
