... From: Moons, Myths and Man by H. S. Bellamy CD Rom Home Last | Contents | Next 4 Observation of the Disintegration of the Tertiary Satellite The post-stationary age, during which the Tertiary satellite drew closer and closer to, and moved more and more quickly round the Earth, at last came to an end. In the later periods of this age the Earth had probably gained a great amount of stability; though the pull of the satellite had flattened the globe considerably, its swift and smooth transit caused few disturbances. At last, however, the satellite came so close that its centre was about 1.8 Earth radii away from the centre of our ...

... two fives) are directly related, and by using the thumb as a pointer, one can count to 12 on the joints of the fingers of one hand. Another type of the abacus in its various forms was especially well suited for business transactions. What kind of calculator did early man use in tracking the movements of the Sun, Moon, and the planets? When tracking the heavenly bodies, which return to a given starting point after a number of years, months, and days, a different kind of calculator was needed. Ring counters long have been used to keep track of repeating cycles, such as those that occur in astronomy and calendrics. A prime example ...

... 42 states, "Jupiter .. .contain[s ] enormous amounts of methane and other hydrocarbons in [its] atmosphere." Thus are hydrocarbons found on Jupiter? According to Gold and Sagan, apparently they are. What then of the possibility of life in the clouds of Jupiter? William J. Kaufmann III in Planets and Moons, (San Francisco 1979), pp. 147148, informs us five years after Sagan presented his criticism of Velikovsky that scientists also suggest life may exist in the clouds of Jupiter. After discussing Harold Urey, and Stanley Miller's experiments which produced some types of amino acids he states, "This experiment has been performed and studied many ...

174. Origin of Earth and Moon: Colliding Theories [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]

Science, Volume 283, Number 5409 Issue of 19 Mar 1999, pp. 1861 - 1863. * Department of Earth Sciences, ETH Zentrum, CH-8092, Zurich, Switzerland Halliday and Drake discuss recent progress towards understanding Earth and moon formation using simulations, high pressure experiments and isotope geochemistry. The most widely accepted theory assumes a "Giant Impact" scenario, in which two proto-planets collide and the moon forms out of the debris created by this ...

175. On Mercury Without A Moon [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. II No. 3 (Feb 1977) Home | Issue Contents Something to Think About . . . On Mercury Without A Moon In 1959, in his book Of Time and Space and Other Things, Isaac Asimov offered an explanation for the fact that the planet Mercury has no satellite. "The maximum distance at which it [Mercury] can expect to form a natural satellite against the overwhelming competition of the nearby Sun is well within the Roche limit.* It follows from that, if my reasoning is correct, that Mercury cannot have a true satellite, and that anything more than a possible spattering of gravel is not to be expected. ...

But it is immediately clear that the escape velocity on these objectsperhaps 20 miles per hour-is so small as to make them incapable of retaining even temporarily any atmosphere; close-up Viking photographs show no atmosphere and no frost patches; and they are among the darkest objects ...

... while any non-catastrophic legend is evidence of suppression of the catastrophic position. In any case, Winter' is speculative enough without dragging in as authorities such stuff as The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail [23] to bolster up, somewhat irrelevantly, the idea of an anti-catastrophist conspiracy spanning, one supposes, two and a half millennia. Moons and Junes To recapitulate: the catastrophic agent in the Clube-Napier scenario is a super-comet, of which we may still observe the shattered remnants. "This comet, in our picture, has been responsible for a potentially devastating impact in the twentieth century; swarm activity and a near-million-megaton lunar impact in the Middle Ages; a Dark Age over ...

... of this, he flew into a rage and flung himself at Mount Pu Chou which, like the original Olympus of the Greeks, was a mythological analogy for the sky.(8 ) Then "the column of the sky was broken, the link with earth was cut. In the north-west the sky collapsed. Hence the sun, moon and stars slipped toward the north-west and the earth tilted to the south-east. Thereupon the waters spread and flowed to the south-east."(9 ) In this we may possibly recognize the series of sequential calamities attributable to the proto-planet Venus when, through its near-collision with Earth, it tilted the globe's axis and made the constellations in the ...

... region occurs some 15 to 30 miles below the land surface and about 5 miles below the oceanic bottoms. This layer corresponds not only to the Moho discontinuity, as I have mentioned in connection with the base of seismism, but also with the volume of "missing sial" from the ocean basins, which roughly approximates the volume of the Moon. Volcanism, then, like seismism, reflects the level at which, all over the globe, the still landed crust moved in reaction to the eruption of the Moon. Whether or not the mantle on which this lunar boundary level rides jostling is solid or liquid, in the years of its fast movement it would have heated, ...

... From: Aeon V:1 (Nov 1997) Home | Issue Contents Circling the Rings Henry Zemel Abstract The eccentricity and inclination of planets, moons, asteroids, and comets are linked in a peculiar way: the bodies in the ecliptic, and the moons in the equatorial plane have nearly circular orbits, while those off the ecliptic or equator are mostly elliptical. Among the planets, all orbits are nearly circular and in the ecliptic, except for Mercury and Pluto whose orbits are elliptical and considerably inclined to the ecliptic. Of the 32 major moons of planets, 20 orbit in the equatorial plane (inclination < 4 degrees), and nearly all of these orbits, ...
