If We Had No Moon DVD

SKU ID #84846
This title is exclusive to the Discovery Channel Store.

In the If We Had No Moon DVD, scientists discuss how a rogue planet crashed into the earth millions of years ago. The outcome: the Moon. In a Moon and Earth DVD, watch as scientists use state-of-the-art simulations to show the collision and discuss how everything around us would be different. Or more likely, nonexistent.

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.

Shop for a fascinating Moon DVD and delve into the possibility that life as we know it, is a direct affect of an ancient planetary collision that produced the Moon, which affects weather, gravitational pull and much, much more.

Blizzards over the Sahara, runaway ice caps and four-hour days across the globe - life without the moon would be no picnic. 50 minutes.
