Hi there John.
I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction with regards to reading material on your Moon theories....
......basically i would like to know the basis for your ideas regarding
Im perticularly interested by your "artificial* /Placed moon" theory (*artificial...my words, not sure if you ever said that), As this idea parallels that which is found in Bruce Cathie's equations, which leads to a "counter-intuative" yet "logical" explanation.....the moon was PLACED there.
So before i go any further with these ideas, i would like to have a good read of your ideas and WHY you think these things.
I would also like to know if you are familiar with Cpt. Bruce L. Cathie and his work?
Thanks in advance for your time John, speek to you soon
These books will give you a start on the info. References in these books will lead you to other books.
Alex Collier is also interviewed and can be viewed on Google Video.
Most significant moons in the Solar System are tidally locked with their primaries, since they orbit very closely and tidal force increases rapidly (as a cubic) with decreasing distance. Notable exceptions are the irregular outer satellites of the gas giant planets, which orbit much further away than the large well-known moons.

Thanks for the link sherpa. I guess I was wrong about the rarity of the moon's motion. It turns out that tidal locking is the norm rather than the exception. Oh well, live and learn. One less conspiracy to worry about.
