<div class="quote-block"><b>Earth's moon destined to disintegrate<br><br>
As the sun grows older, the fate of our planet and its moon isn't pretty<br><br></b> \t<br><br>
By David Powell<br><br>
Updated: 11:12 a.m. PT Jan 22, 2007<br><br><br><br>
The sun is midway through its stable hydrogen burning phase known as the main sequence. But when the sun enters the red giant phase in around 5 billion years things are going to get a lot rougher in the Earth-moon system.<br><br><br><br>
During the red giant phase the sun will swell until its distended atmosphere reaches out to envelop the Earth and moon, which will both begin to be affected by gas drag the space through which they orbit will contain more molecules. The moon is now moving away from Earth and by then will be in an orbit that's about 40 percent larger than today. It will be the first to warp under the suns influence.</div>

Well, if we just store all of our nuclear waste on the Moon, we can save it by sending it off into the nether-reaches of the universe when all that nuclear material spontaneously explodes, like it did in <i>Space: 1999</i> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Will an Eagle 1 hold all of us? We certainly have to have the first season music going as our theme, though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Maybe we should call on International Rescue instead <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

I did a report on Mars in elementary school. The only thing I remember is that the moon closest to the planet (there are two) is slowly breaking up and that someday Mars will have a ring (like Saturn, except not as cool) from the moon pieces.
