Hello Lotters, Call me crazy though but I used to think about blowing up the moon someday with out no particular reason. there was even a Movie scene whereas too much mining and demolition of the moon had split it off and other half fell down to the earth. not a referral link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCZgtQu6VLs Okay, so colonizing is BAD idea. but i realized too that things won't be the same with out the Moon. here's why. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JDZz0shcrI If the moon is gone for some reason, our climate would never be the same. it explains that moon is a stabelizer for us to have good axis, and a normal climate. not to mention moon has effect on ecology. if moon is gone, a lot will change, radical change of climate. Suns and other planets will pull us to a bit of huge change of weather like gigantic tsunamis. In general, it's a real CRAPPy Night mare if moon isn't around. You think were better off with out de MOON?

we honestly couldn't take so much out of the moon to affect it adversely, so colonizing it shouldn't be a problem, tho how economically feasible that is I don't know... I sure won't worry about colonizing it causing it to fall apart, that's just silly

Hello petersum, yes but not that strong because of that weird gravitational pull between earth and moon. but when it's gone it will be the sun who will the pulling, which would instead caused Gigantic WAVES. maybe the mediterranean wasn't big enough unlike the Sea Ocean? you mentioned doesn't have Noticeable tides? but that means there might still be tides there but not seen much? makes us lucky we this planet instead

No we can't be better without the moon. God created the moon for a good reasons if not he could have not created it at all. I agree with all what you've stated. Those reasons made the moon vital to our existence. So we should thank God every time we see the moon and its view should lead us into the realization that we have a great God indeed.

lol i got confused when you said colonizing, since its different from blowing it off. colonizing is more about humans living in the moon via space colony. I watch that episode of the universe before and it's really scary to lose the moon. I heard every year the moon is separating a meter from earth so in million years earth will be moon free. the only thing mind at moon is Helium 3 which is found in moon dust. there is no need to dig.

hi letran that video was fantastic and i have learned a lot today that I was not aware of and some that I had heard of but not paid enough attention. I am now most grateful that out moon is there doing it thing and keeping earth from that barren hellish place it could have been.Nope we need that moon and I am grateful for all it does to keep our earth habitable. wow.
