An incredible way to look at the distribution of people over the earth. It's scary and awesome at the same time. And it's bizarre that New Jersey got mentioned! We have a densely populated state, but where I live, in central/south New Jersey, it is full of open space. We have land between villages and towns. Hmm. Hard to grasp.
How was Earth formed? What is the earliest limit of the fossil and tectonic record? Could a shift in magnetic poles happen in the near future, and what would that mean? What would carbon-based life be like if Earth had double the gravity? Were there red sunsets in prehistoric times, before human pollution? All this, plus Neil’s classic answer to the question, “If the moon is getting further away from the Earth each year, how can we have a Super Moon?”
A Year Of Lunar Phases And Wobbles | Video Published on Nov 21, 2012 by VideoFromSpace While the Moon always keeps the same face to Earth, its not exactly the same. The tilt and shape of the Moon's orbit slightly changes what is visible to us. When you speed a month up to 24 seconds as in this video, our Moon appears to wobble.
