Transcript of Moons

Moon "Big Whack" cloud of vaporized rock shot off the earth's surface and went into orbit around Earth
(4.6 billion years ago) rapid joining together of particles released lots of heat and energy the moon turned into a ocean of magma (melted rock) no atmosphere which eventually cooled into rock called basalt earth's natural satellite Libration about 59% of the moons surface is visible from earth ancient ideas... mirror that reflected the earths lands and seas landings 1959-1972: 5 landings with the Apollo Missions

Spudis, Paul D. "Moon." World Book Online Reference Center. 2004. World Book, Inc. (http://www.worldbookonline.com/wb/Article?id=ar370060.) 12 people have walked on the moon travels around earth at 23,000 miles per hour tides the moons gravitational pull does not affect all parts of earth equally the closer to the moon, the stronger the pull which creates a wave that travels around the earth as it rotates
causes the ocean to rise up a little
(less than a meter) the gravitational pull is causing the moon to spiral away from us (receding at 2 inches per year) what if there was no moon? http://www.astrosociety.org/education/publications/tnl/33/moon2.html our days would be way shorter (8 hours) solon facts: the only tides would be from the sun rotating bowl of fire a world just like earth http://faculty.washington.edu/chudler/moon.html Gravitational Pull: water ice in deep craters near the south pole does the moon affect human behavior? "the lunar effect" you feel like you weigh 5/6 less on the moon so our rotation would slow down but not nearly as much winds would occur daily at around 100 mph complex life might not exist yet? our biology would be different? by: Lucy Madden

In any hospital emergency room, the nurses will tell you that a full Moon hanging in the sky is an open invitation for the crazies to come out from under the rocks. myths
