Volcanic Moon and Bombardment Phase

October 20, 2017

Saw this about the Moon having a thin atmosphere 3.5 to 4 bya.

I always wondered why the half of the moon facing earth was so cratered while the other side was not.

Could it be that this volcanic outgassing was pulled out of the Moon by the gravity of the Earth?

Then, if that is true, does that suggest that the bombardment, was not asteroids as much as it was the Earth forcing volcanic activity from the near side of the Moon?

Then, if there was not the severe bombardment phase, we can move back the OOL (origin of life) to an earlier time?

Moon Poem

May 19, 2017

He made his roof
a magnifying glass.
When stars came out
he could touch each one.
When the Moon came out
he could gather stones.

Serenade of the Moon

February 27, 2016

Sit here beside me.
It’ll be here soon.
It comes out of nowhere,
serenade of the moon.

Night after night
it plays its tune,
the much celebrated
serenade of the moon.

First loud as a bell,
then soft as a loon,
the waxing and waning
serenade of the moon.

(From Writings in Science, a History of the Future,
A novel in stories, essays, poems and play.)

Two More … Sky Poems

there is a rustling
in the east.
night is over.

last thing to do
is lock the door …
a half hour later
I’m still watching the moon …

two more MOON poems

Old tin Moon
falls branch to branch
Clatter! Clatter!
What a ruckus!
.
We landed on
the Sea of Vapors,
cold and gray and
tinged with sun.
