Rather than do literally
anything else, scientists have spent forty-five years trying to
decipher the true shape of the fucking moon, which is apparently
“like a lemon with an equatorial bulge,” according to the author of
absolutely pointless study. The
Efforts to pinpoint the moon’s exact shape have long been stymied by the presence of large craters on its surface that formed after the crust solidified. There have also been inconsistencies between its measurements and what we know about its past.
For example, the moon barely spins, yet it appears to have the sort of equatorial bulge caused by rotation. And why would a giant ball of cooled liquid be anything but spherical?
Intriguing questions! If they weren’t about the stupid moon.
