    A water based extra solar planet has been discovered, but not much else is known. Hubble even managed a picture of it, sort of. water = life we can presume.

    Thank you both for participating.

    Red Devil, do you have an animation of the earth, moon and sun in orbit?

    Pinwheel, because as i said, it is too far away and too small.

    O course not. I know the earth is round. I know because we went into space. If not then i may view the earth as flat. So would you.

    Well, the thing is that it was not PROVEN to be round until we went into space and actually saw that it IS round.

    Crap. Unmitigated crap.
    The moon is moving away from the Earth because angular momentum is being transferred to it. The Earth slows down its daily rotation, the moon moves away. The angular momentum of the system is conserved. By the time the Earth is tidally locked with the moon that outward movement will cease. Since the timescale for that is, IIRC, longer than than the time scale to the sun's red giant phase, none of the scenarios you have portrayed can come to fruition.

    I new you were ignorant. I didn't know you were also a fool.

    Actually its not crap, its fact. I would prefer to believe NASA than your opinion. Of ocurse none of the scenarios I describe have come to fruition, the moon has not 'gone yet' - jeezx, I wish people would read the bloody posts.

    Okay, first of all, the surface of the earth is flat. The planet itself is round.
