Sounds a bit quirky but I have to say the facts included don`t half make you think! I am a sceptical old bugger but the recurring pattern of numbers and the possibilities of hidden information is mind blowing.. A Great Read !
Interesting and the number relationships are surprising. I wonder if some of these relationships are linked though. I.e. How many independent relationships? The 'whack' theory too easily dismissed as the principal objection was the unlikelihood of a second collision to adjust the angular momentum. However, later in the book, it is explained how the tidal effect is a mechanism to transfer energy to the moon, and it is not explained why this couldn't be the agent for slowing the earths rotation without needing to invoke an unlikely second whack. The suggestion of a hidden message in our DNA is pure speculation and is not justified. I keep an open mind, but I have to say I remain unconvinced. Nevertheless, an interesting read to while away the time on a sunbed!
An amazing book. This is a fascinating examination of the moon. What is it? How did it get here? Why is it so perfectly positioned? All these questions and so many strange facts are examined in this book. For example: When Apollo 13 was being planned, scientists were specifically looking to the answers raised by the Apollo 11 and Apollo 12 missions. One strange occurrence that they were attempting to answer was just why the moon rang like a bell for an hour. During the Apollo 12 mission, astronauts took a 2.5 ton piece of metal and crashed it into the surface of the moon. This led to a strange bell like sound to reverberate for over an hour, leading scientists to believe that the Moon’s structure is different from the Earth. Apollo 13 did a similar experiment with larger and heavier items and encountered the same result. Strangely, NASA is unable to explain why the moon does this. Is it hollow? Is it inhabited? Is there a base on the moon?
