There exist a lot of gravity simulators across the internet, some of them are good, some of them are bad.
I decided to try the Gravity Simulator from
in order to visualize the behavior of Moon with respect to Earth that is gradually losing its mass from 15 Earth masses (+/- Uranus) to 1 Earth mass. Can we explain the angular momentum of the Earth-Moon system via the Chthonian Theory?
Random Input Parameters
- Mass: 15 Earth masses
- Mass: 0.0123 Earth masses
- Semi-major axis: 100,000 km
- Eccentricity: 0
- Velocity: +/- 7.7 km/s
I tried to reduce the Earth’s mass +/- every lunar orbit by 1 Earth mass. Here are some results:
The first results with random values showed that the Chthonian Theory can provide good explanation for the Earth-Moon system angular momentum (evolution).
What we observed:
- The Earth-Moon distance is getting bigger.
- The velocity of Moon is getting lower – from approximately 7.7 km/s to today’s value 1 km/s.
- The finer and longer the mass loss, the smaller the eccentricity changes.
