If We Had No Moon DVD

SKU ID #84846
$19.95
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.

          My kids are always asking why the moon is so important to our planet. This DVD does a wonderful job of exlporing the origins of the moon ands explaining exactly what it does for our everyday lives.

            This DVD does a great job of introducing and explaining the unknown origin and purpose of the moon. Will blow the minds of newcomers. My students eat it up each year.

            Yet another must-have DVD for your collection! First saw this several years back on VHS adn despaired of ever having it come to DVD. Having no moon would be a definate minus. But this DVD explains some truly complex ideas really clearly.

            This show was really informative and cool.Amazing graphics,and I loved that it was just about the moon instead of the whole solar system.Also great is the look/speculation about what this planet would be without it.I didnt know we were inching away from the moon each year and it was fascinating to see how many things run on the lunar cycle.I see the moon in a new light and with a new respect.
