Editorial Reviews

If We Had No Moon DVD, consider what life on earth would be like without the moon? Well, chances are, there wouldn't be any life on earth without the moon. In an Earth DVD, life - if it had started at all - would still be in the earliest stages of evolution. Scientists use the latest computer simulations to show how an ancient rogue planet - Orpheus - collided with the earth millions of years ago, producing a sizable chunk of debris that eventually became our moon. Watch in the Universe DVD, how if that collision had never occurred, we would live in a very different place. Imagine a moon-less weather report - blizzards over the Sahara, flood waters swallowing the Pyramids, 90 degree temperatures in Antarctica. In If We Had No Moon DVD, as the earth wobbles on its axis - unsecured by the moon's gravitational pull - the polar caps would grow and recede at frightening rates. And without the moon, our planet would spin much faster - meaning four-hour days and searing temperatures. Worse yet, in the Earth DVD, evidence reveals that we are in fact losing our grip on our lunar friend thanks to the ebb and flow of the oceans' tides. Experts reveal theories for salvaging the moon - including hijacking Europa from Jupiter - and demonstrate how we can prepare ourselves for our eventual life without it.

Format: DVD
The title is a bit deceiving because this DVD goes way beyond just asking the question "What if we had no Moon?" It discusses how we got our moon, how getting the moon may have actually started life on earth, how dependent we are on the positive effects the moon has on the earth. It also explores the fact that the Moon is gradually moving away from the earth and this may eventually result in some very catastrophic issues for the Earth. It even explores briefly the effects of the full-moon on animals and human behavior. Quite fascinating!

The details on this video was very interesting to my Earth science class. When learning about tides, eclipses, and moon phases the question always comes up..."what if we had no moon?" This video does an awesome job discussing this topic with great scientists.

The things you didn't know about how important the moon is to our life here on earth!!! Amazing learning. I will never look at the moon the same again nor take it for granted.
