Asteroids Comets Destruction Oh My!

Humor and Science Fiction  Isn’t our government brilliant

First the list:  Good people are good people no matter the color or where they come from

Science exploration is essential – please go for it

IT’S A MOVIE  we’ve pretended to destroy the Earth

several times

We set ourselves down at the theater, popcorn, the lights go down and the character building begins. An older man looks disgusted, looking for something, finds it – the card, pack light, small cooler, loaf of bread- cheese- spinach-mayo- cold pack- water. Oklahoma red dirt and an old Volvo, the back-flashes of some of his past at the Pentagon unfold. He arrives at the Pentagon, (or the correct building that’s into global planning — read — never been to Washington, don’t know) he tries his card and it fails. The cartoon bubble above his head reads. If you trash your card – door 7b Fib.  Walks around to 7b, pushes his card into the antique reader and enters the sequence to 8. Down the hall from his old office he slowly opens the door then moves to the man behind the desk. Settles – leans over and hisses!

We have a problem here, Panama canal is outdated for some shipping- Our country is being bought by people that will eventually raise the rent and we will not have a place.  You dumb asses are thinking way too small! Go get an asteroid, bring it in and pretend to try to blow it up, but it just breaks into two pieces. You fix global warming, open up shipping, and slow down “the landlord”!

Soo, I recently read about the project of towing an asteroid into an orbit around the moon. Hmmh, I said Hmmh.
BTW. It’s mostly not approved yet.

The Moon is Normal, or ( we have been Mooned, get accustomed to it)

random-wallpapers-full-moon-pictures-wallpaper-33834This is what we get for not paying attention.  some of  this is an opinion..

Although magnets are not gravity, they are similar. (electric motors work because of the rotating magnetic field)  Here’s the best starting place and where I found this information. It came up in “Moon orbit – the encyclopedia version”.

In the year 2015 the Moon will be in the minimal ecliptic orbit, meaning  closest track to the Earths equator. The maximum ecliptic orbit was 2006. I asked some of my astronomy friends that year when I noticed the track of the Moon light/shadow on the floor that summer. I used masking tape – full Moon – Moon directly south of the window.  Hindsight is great, remember 05 through 09 and the polar ice cap had hot water – the tide- rushing under it for several years. A good portion melted.

I mentioned gravity

Billions of years ago Earth days were much shorter and at this time it is slowing rotation by 23 microseconds a year and the (transfer energy) moon is speeding up. The moon orbit diameter increases by 38 millimeters (about 1.5 inches) a year.  Imagine if the Earth could make it past the 2.3 billion  ( it’s the sun issue- look it up) year in the future  to the 50 billion year  in the future time. It would take 47 days for the Moon to make one orbit, the Earth day would also be equal to 47 days now and all the water in the oceans would bunch up on the Moon side.

Timing is everything, I’ve heard that before. How about you? Ugh, I’m really looking forward to the year 2024.
