NASA on the Moon – Lunar Gravity Shifting

January 5, 2012


Scientists say that a recent analysis of a Lunar Laser Ranging data record across a period of 38.7 years revealed an anomalous increase of the eccentricity of the lunar orbit.

This phenomena occurring in the interiors of both the Earth and the Moon, cannot be explained say expert in quantum cosmology.

They have examined numerous dynamical effects, not modeled in the data analysis, in the framework of long-range modified models of gravity and of the standard Newtonian/Einsteinian paradigm. The results are puzzling since none of them can explain the current magnitude of eccentricity.

Apparently, the general relativistic ‘gravitomagnetic acceleration’ of the Moon due to the Earth’s angular momentum has the right order of magnitude, but the resulting Lense-Thirring secular effect for the eccentricity vanishes, published scholar Lorenzo Iorio, in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society Journal. A potentially viable Newtonian candidate would be a trans-Plutonian massive object, argued Iorio, like Planet X/Nemesis/Tyche.

Nevertheless, the scholar says that these possibilities encounter a disagreement with both the most recent theoretical scenarios envisaging the existence of a distant, planetary-sized body and with the model-independent constraints on them dynamically inferred from planetary motions.

Therefore, he concludes that the issue of finding a probable rationalization for the anomalous behavior of the Moon’s eccentricity is still under question.

Interesting enough is the fact that over the New Year’s weekend, a pair of NASA spacecraft arrived back-to-back at their destination in the first mission devoted to studying lunar gravity.

The Gravity Recovery And Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) probes are designed to map the moon’s lumpy gravitational field, which is stronger over the maria (facing Earth) than in the highlands (on the dark side), announced NASA.

Learning about the moon’s gravity field will tell scientists about its interior, and perhaps whether it did in fact swallow a smaller sibling sometime in its past.

    just pondering, maybe Jupiter has increased its magnetic pull after those comets the size of earth crashed in to it and has upset the balance or started a chain reaction in the center increasing gravity as it fires up, its huge. we need all the info on everything, planet X if it exists, to the position of the sun in the galaxy, everything to possible floating black holes that have eaten there galaxy and there so big there influence stretches over a thousand galaxies, some of them are as big as galaxies and I think there is a huge huge black hole that rotates every galaxy at the center of the universe, it would mirror the hole visible galaxy so undetectable to our small eyes.

    If we have a pole shift in the future the moon will shift to but before the earth because of weight and risistance against a big apponant like the Sun or the opposite in the case of the galaxy rotation as it pass’s north to south of the galaxy, I’m stumped on this one further thought is needed, thanks heaps.
