    Today we are answering an age-old very scientific and important question: What if the moon crashes into earth? It’s more interesting and weird than you probably think. Let's start with the basics: Why isn't the Moon on its way to crash into us already?

      @Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell Absolutely Totally Awesome Video, loving it. I recently watched a Apocalyptic movie called: (Moonfall). Although this is not a totally accurate representation. Cause there was technology imbedded with the core of the moon itself. but would like to hear you thoughts about it.
      Also, would really love if you could do a video on: (If the Earth Core stopped spinning). As well there was another movie I watched quite some time ago called: (The Core), which the Earths core stopped and they restarted it with nuclear bomb. I'm really interested in learning what would actually happen and if it's possible to restart the Core?

      I mean, a better and less catastrophic solution (albeit a very time-consuming one) is to mine the moon and insert the extracted lunar rock into a lower orbit around the Earth. Although, you may not want those rocks in too low of an orbit or they’ll succumb to orbital decay before the rings can be fully assembled.

      @John Dalton Well, it depends
      Because if we consider the volume/radius/mass of the moon even if it was broken in dozens of thousands of pieces those pieces would still be chicxulub asteroid size if not bigger, upon entering they would heat the atmosphere enough to mess everything that's not gone yet, also for those things to stay in orbit should go at least 28 000km/h so if one slips the situation gets tough, if 2 or more do as well, then that would be it

    Even before the Moon reaches the Roche Limit, it would, in its own right, start experiencing volcanism! This is because all the tidal kneading on the Moon would exert enough friction to heat the Moon's interior to the point of melting. This is the reason why the Jovian moon Io has active volcanoes.

    One thing that you didn't mention:
    As the moon gets closer to the earth, you will either feel significantly heavier or lighter depending on which side of the earth you are on relative to which side of the earth the moon is on.

    • Michael Jorgensen
      Michael Jorgensen Tháng trước

      @Fauzia Azim After researching further on "Roche Limit" I found I was correct. You would be 1/8 OF 1/6 lighter. Notice the word "of". I did not write 1/8 or 1/6 or 1/10. So 1/8 of 1/6 is approximately 2.083 pounds for every 100 pounds. I was correct again when I said you would not be significantly lighter. When the moon comes closer that the Roche Limit it will affect your weight more significantly.

    • Michael Jorgensen
      Michael Jorgensen Tháng trước +1

      @Fauzia Azim Think about it. The moon being at the "Roche limit" DOES NOT mean you weigh 1/6 what you normally weigh. The Roche limit DOES NOT mean the satellite (moon) is at the point where it's gravitational influence is equal to the planet you are standing on. Reaching the Roche limit means that the gravity holding it [the Moon] together is weaker than the tidal forces acting to pull it apart. That point is NOT the point at which you weigh 1/6 or 1/10 of what you normally do.

    • Fauzia Azim
      Fauzia Azim Tháng trước

      @Michael Jorgensen even 1/10th would still be 10 pounds for 100 pounds bruh. 1/6th is 16.6 pounds for 100

    • 高若嵩
      高若嵩 2 tháng trước +2

      On the moon's surface, the moon's gravitational pull is about 1/6 that of Earth's.
      HOWEVER, that doesn't mean it'd have the same gravity further away! Throughout this entire scenario the distance from the moon and the Earth is >10000 km, and the Earth itself has a diameter of 12000 km. You are always >22000 km away from the moon.
      And since the moon is 1/80 of the Earth's mass, but 4 times as far from us than we are from the Earth's core; apply |a|=GM/r^2; the moon's gravitational effect never exceeds 0.1% of the Earth's from our perspective.

    One question. As I understand, the moon is moving away 4cm/year, and the Earth and the Moon are both growing due to small objects that enters the Earth atmosphere or hit the Moon. How does that work out in the long term?

    • Bluechair
      Bluechair Tháng trước

      The moon eventually leaves Earth's orbit is the consensus I think. The moon is moving away much, much faster than both the Earth and Moon is growing. After all, the moon was much closer when it was formed, so I doubt a few (relatively) insignificant mass additions would change the Moons drift.

    • Brian Ronald
      Brian Ronald 3 tháng trước

      The "small objects" are negligible. As the tides of Earth transfer energy (in the form of angular momentum) from Earth to the moon, the moon rises to higher and higher orbits. Eventually, the Earth's day and month are the same, and the moon orbits in a fixed location in the sky as seen from Earth. At this time, it ceases its rise. The Earth's day is a month long, and the month is slightly shorter. There are no more total solar eclipses, only annular ones. All of this in similar timescales to the Sun's lifetime, so it might not actually have time to happen.

    • TurtleShroom
      TurtleShroom 3 tháng trước

      The moon never escapes, but it becomes tidally locked, meaning it orbits at the same speed as the earth.

    Hoje estaremos respondendo uma pergunta antiga muito científica e importante: E se a Lua colidir com a Terra? Isso é mais interessante e estranho do que você provavelmente acha. Vamos começar com o básico: Porquê a Lua já não está a caminho de colidir conosco?
    Sabemos que a gravidade da Terra puxa tudo em direção a ela, incluindo a Lua, mas de alguma forma, ela continua lá em cima, como se fosse suspensa por outra força oposta. Mas não há outra força contra a gravidade - ao invés disso, o truque para continuar em cima é uma moção 'de lado' na qual chamamos de órbita. Você vê órbitas todo dia: quando você joga uma bola ela fez uma bem pequena órbita. A única diferença entre a órbita dessa bola e a da Lua é que a bola eventualmente cai no chão. Basicamente, a razão é velocidade. Se você pudesse jogar sua bola o rápido o bastante, ela iria dar a volta ao mundo e voltar para você. Se não tivesse ar a alontecendo, ela poderia órbitar para sempre. E é isso que a Lua faz: Caindo de lado ao redor da Terra, muito rápido, sem ar para a deixar mais lenta. Orbitando a Terra a cada 27 dias, em 3600 km/h. Então para a Lua só parar a sua órbita e cair em direção a Terra iria quebrar mais leis da física do que nós temos tempo de explicar. Então como fazemos ela ir colidir com a Terra? Resumido, para mudar a órbita de um objeto, você precisa mudar sua velocidade, oque muda onde a gravidade o leva. Mas até mudanças pequenas iriam requerir forças enormes, oque é porquê todos os objetos grandes no sistema solar são tão estáveis hoje em dia. De acordo com a ciência, a Lua é grande e muito massiva.

    It was actually surprising to hear that the answer isn't "Impact destroys the planet". I never considered that it was possible to survive the moon falling.
    Edit: Since some of you don't seem to understand what "possible" means, yes, you PROBABLY die. Between the tides, complete destruction of several food webs, shortage of drinkable water, earthquakes, super volcanoes, and chunks of moon that will impact, survival is not probable. What's surprising is that the probability is any fractional amount above 0% because I assumed the Moon falling would mean Mars gets promoted to the 3rd planet.

      I run a D&D campaign where the moon (Selune) was turned into essentially a Dyson Sphere around the earth (Toril) by god-magic and such. I calculated there's enough mass to do it, but pretty much only a literal god could actually pull it off and keep it stable. :-P We're talking Spelljammers and space dragons and stuff... science has to end somewhere for fiction to begin!
      Basically, an alien entity from the Phlogiston wanted to invade the Solar System, so it took over a Stellar Dragon and started wrecking gods in a battle in the space between earth and the moon. The dozen or so gods who weren't dead yet realized they couldn't kill it, so a bunch sacrificed themselves bull-rushing it onto the earth, and the rest poured all their power into spreading the moon's mass over the globe in a huge hollow sphere. They each portaled what humanoid followers they could from the Earth's surface and placed them in essentially a "Garden of Eden" the size of Australia atop the sphere, which is ringed with mountains... the rest of the sphere's massive surface is pure moon rock, barren and lifeless.
      While forming the sphere, knowing they were soon to pass into weakened, catatonic slumber, the gods had decided to create one long shaft down to the Earth. To find this shaft, they also scattered a grid of trials, challenges, and rewards throughout the land, meant to build up adventurers who might someday find a way to defeat or banish the Eldritch entity who decimated the world. One of the gods, however, was a traitor who initiated a mind-wipe for all the humanoids, hoping his chosen creatures would overpower the rest and lead to a new age of supremacy over all living beings, not caring at all about the surface world. The attempted conquest failed, but even so, it severely undermined the cooperating gods' plan to save the world, and for centuries the mind-wiped surface creatures simply formed a new society and countries and mythologies and never learned of the great plan.
      Enter the Party. They are in a "typical low-magic fantasy world," during a time of peace, and for all they know the world is young. Outside of myths and legends, recorded history only stretches a few centuries back. Monsters "don't exist," and the oldest Elves are covering up the fact that they have no memory of their own childhoods. No one has ventured over the far mountains, for civilization simply hasn't spread that far yet (and no explorers have returned). But something new has happened. A true, real monster was found attacking a farm, and it was tracked back to a strange, underground room, made of perfectly spherical stone, with a chest in the middle containing artifacts with never-before-seen designs and languages and runes. Was there a civilization before this one? The Party joins a new Adventuring craze, as a mad gold rush begins to find even more caches and treasures of this mysterious nature. The slumbering gods' plan is finally in motion. But many dangers lie ahead, as there is yet one Elf who, through the power of the Eldritch Entity, remembers the world of before, and under the entity's influence will do anything to make sure this prison is destroyed...

    Doesn't the moon have escape velocity of about 3mm per year, or something? Maybe it's three cm per year I can't remember?
    We are in a very lucky/unique time because the moon perfectly eclipses the sun. in a few million years the sun will form a ring around the moon from our perspective, rather than being totally eclipsed by it, as the moons orbit of the Earth increases in size.
    You can thank the laser reflectors they put on the sea of tranquility/Mare Tranquillitatis for this information.

      @lukafilm Aw man, I was gonna suggest "Lunar Year" for a title. You know, since it takes a year for the moon to fall apart. That can be the low-budget imitation, starring some big name who's trying to get out of debt.

      Hermitcraft season 8 is that exact thing, just as a series instead of a film

    The irony is that you'd think after the volcanoes and tidal waves it would end with the lunar impact ending it all.
    But no, it's like the rainbow after the flood.
