[what if]第157期:从地球到月球的滑杆

—— Ramon Schonborn, 德国

首先我们要澄清一些事实:

现实中,我们并不能在地球和月球之间支起一根金属杆。金属杆接近月球的一端会被月球的引力拉向月球,而其他部分会被地球的引力拉向地球,杆会被从中间拉断。

另一个问题是地球自转速度(地表速度)比月球绕地球转的速度快,所以如果你把杆连在地面上,它很快就会脱离:

还有一个问题(其实大概有上百个问题吧):地球和月球之间的距离并不固定,月亮时近时远。虽然距离差别不是很大,但是足以每月把杆戳进地球50000公里(嘿)。

[1993] Fatal Crash Rate

Title Text:Fixating on this seems unhealty. But in general, the more likely I think a crash is, the less likely one becomes, which is a strange kind of reverse placebo effect.
