Skip to comments.New evidence for the Moon's soft middle
Posted on 12/27/2004 2:29:35 PM PST by SunkenCiv
New calculations that indicate how the Moon's surface and interior react to the gravitational pull of the Earth and the Sun have produced further evidence that molten "slush" exists beneath the lunar surface... The first evidence of a soft region near the Moon's core was found using seismological equipment placed at different places on the surface during the Apollo missions. These found that moonquakes lost their energy when they traveled further than 1,000 kilometers below the Moon's surface. Since 1977, when these measurements ended, there has been no further evidence.

I thought the moon was hollow???? Don't the aliens hide there??
Crunchy on the outside! Chewy on the inside!
The French have never been to the moon, ergo, it cannot be brie. It must be genuine processed American cheese food product.

hey shagster! they're ON to us again!
no kiddin'. even SunkenCiv is suspicious. he says it's BRIE. now how in the hell did he know THAT!?? Camembert is sorta like brie...right?
ok, ok...it was a good idea at the time..."the best place to hide something is in plain sight"....but you know...now that i think about it....my grandfather always did say that Sherlock guy he worked for was always covering up for Moriarty figuring out where he hid his secret stuff...which when it includes all those "extra" Christmas smoked gooses grand-dad charged to ol' Ebenezer's account at the butcher's, well...that gets personal!
so, we'd better get busy and move the cheese again.
freepmail me back when you get this. I am already gassing-up the ship. man...i mean eel...when will it end?!! can't an eel and dog make an ho...uh...a living around here?
what a world.
It's oowy-goowy, rich and creamy inside,
Golden-flakey, extra-cakey outside,
Turn the inside to the outside, it's a good darn toot'in'
It's a big......Fig.........Newton.......!
( or.....errr..... something like that........ )
I loved that, particularly when he sings, "here comes the tricky part" and stands on one leg. :') Back to "McClintock"...
Those alien b******s! Get out of our Moon!!!
HEY!!! Who Moved My Cheese!!!!!!!
I don't know.
It was like that when I got there.

Would anyone here like to know how this "cheesy" moon of ours was actually taffy-pulled 4.4 billion years ago during the formation of our earth-moon system?
Y' mean it's really OUR cheese, and now it's our Extra Cheese...?
Yes, the extra "cheese" on the cheeseburger is the proto-earth's ring system that was perturbed(dropped)out of orbit 4.4 billion years ago by the newly captured moon; that layer of hydrate-rich planetisimals/wet gravel eventually became, after 500,000,000 years of tectonic massaging, our oceans and lightweight continents; and we're part of the "mice" that nibble on it. The moon and earth surfaces have the same isotope ratios in the refractory elements, but the planetisimals that impacted the moon were FRIED and so the volatiles(H2O, NH3, etc)were boiled off the lunar surface which was griddle-HOT during this bull-in-a-china-shop period. Wanna know how the moon was taffy-pulled-captured? That's an interesting story in itself(it WASN'T impact-splash). And speaking of CHEESE, my mouse traps with cheese-bait are doing a land office business these winter-soltice days : about one "customer" a day...
LOL !......And I thought I was the ONLY one who remembered the guy in the Fig Suit doing some sort of a "hokey-pokey" dance....LOL !

It's the big fig newton!
One more time.
It's the big fig newton!
[she forgot the "Here comes the tricky part/the big fig newton!" after the first chorus]
THANK GOD !
After all these years..... I thought it was a Reoccurring Bad dream, brought on by ONE of my mom's "mystery meat" stews, back when I was 7 yrs. old .......... Whew......
