Venus Has No Moon

Venus is the planet that most resembles Earth. Like the Earth, it is a terrestrial planet, which means that it is composed mainly of rocks. The size and the mass of Venus are also close to that of the Earth’s. For these reasons, it is often called Earth’s sister planet or Earth’s twin. However, one of the most baffling differences between the two planets is that Venus does not have a natural satellite or moon.

According to a theory, the Earth’s moon was caused when an object with a mass similar to that of Mars impacted the Earth many years ago. This caused a fragment of the Earth to hurl into orbit and with the debris from the large impacting object, eventually formed the moon. It follows that Venus should have a moon because of its similarity to Earth.

There are several theories that might explain the non-existence of Venus’s natural satellite:

  • One theory suggests that Venus experienced an impact similar to Earth. However, the gravity of Venus was not able to hold on to the fragmented piece that drifted into space. A similar theory suggests that Venus did have a moon once but it escaped the gravity pull of the planet.
  • Since Venus is close to the Sun, it is possible that the gravity of the Sun affected its satellite, causing it to escape Venus’s influence.
  • David Stevenson, a CalTech professor, and Alex Alemi, a CalTech student, proposed that an object collided with Venus many years ago, which created a moon. However, another impact event caused the change in Venus’s rotation that also explains the inverse rotation of the planet. Due to the slow and inverted rotation of the planet, it caused a moon linked to Venus, it started moving towards the planet. This then resulted to Venus reabsorbing its natural satellite.

    Hey!! Venus (DID) Have a moon!!! I know!!!! And belive me when I say it did have one! Your Cal-Tec people were almost close to the answer!! But no Cookie!! And I don’t really understand why you don’t get it,When the answer is right in front of your face!!! Think People,Think!!! Now as soon as some one with enough care of how Venus really became the way it is today then write me!! The answer will blow your mind!!! Have a nice day!! Tim

    this is boring

    Definitely not boring theory.
    Venus revealed to have thicker crust than expected.
    NASA says the Centarui A&B with Proxima Centaauri novaed 10 myag.

    I suggest the periodic compression of our heliosphere that happens every 5,000 y is due to this Proxima Centauri orbit that brings it to the Oort shell before looping back to the Centauri A&B system.
    It may be dense nuclear matter such as a degraded LT starbit or a neutron star or white dwarf. It sheds neutrinos (anti matter) which energetically expand normal cosmic space and thus compress all heliospheres within.
    We periodically and regularly experience compression that reduces the heliosphere to about the orbit of Mercury. This energy field and the heliosphere meet at the Majorana transform where matter and antimatter mix and suspend. The action of this field is to push the heliosphere down compressed to Mercury. All planetary bodies are thus :
    1) compressed to a greater and greater degree until
    2) the Majorana transform passed the body and
    3) when it does the body is exposed to cosmic rays and expansion on the back of the transform.

    This cycle has repeated every 5,000 y for millions of years. The violently heated planetary cores and gases did not support life. Hence the late development of life that puzzles scientists.
    I do not propose correlative significance to the Ice Ages as even Wilki does not do that.
    Only when the energy field has lost sufficient energy so that it fails to reach Sol.

    The first planet to not be exposed to the back side of the energy field would be Venus. The heat from the core would no longer function to expand the planet once on the back side of the field. The planet would remain compressed the entire time it takes for the energy to suddenly release. It would be a pressurized planet. Upon compression release it would have an energetic heated core blow out. Pressurized gases would consume the surface of the planet. The long pressure would have altered the nature of the natural gases and metals. Water would have disassociated. Spontaneous conflagration would make the planet glow in the sky. I propose our early selves witnessed this event from Earth. Venus was never a comet. The release of these ionized gases would attract ionized space bodies. Impact danger is greatest at the compression release due to this ionizing factor. Perhaps the reason Venus has no moon.

    I suggest this event is 20,000 or more years past. Venus may be building an atmosphere as 2006 evidence of south polar vortex of cold air indicates. More support is the ozone found in 2011. If Egyptian mythology is any indication of formation, the elevated atmosphere of Earth temperature and components 50 miles above the surface of Venus may slowly sink and return to the surface.

    Earth may have been in the Majorana transform at this time. The next 5,000 y cycle would put Earth in the ‘hot seat’ of maximum compression. Ice Ball Earth could have saved us several times from surface conflagration due to expelled gases. There is evidence of Tibetan and Coloradoan uplift that would indicate a pull of anti gravity energy. There is the Cayman Trench that clearly indicates a gas blow out great severity. Earth survived the Do or Die moment Venus did not.

    The current compression (acknowledged by NASA but claimed due to a lighter gas cloud the heliosphere is currently in) did not reach the Earth; presumably it did not reach Mars. Mars did not survive an earlier compressive event or the passage into the back side of the transform. Either way Mars will not recover sufficiently to build an atmosphere altho it may currently show the effects of compression with noticeable increase in gases.

    I suggest that the fact that radiation is significant on the surface of Earth is due to the release of radon gas. I suggest we are currently experiencing this radon gas increase and will continue todo so as the compression lifts at the end of 2012 when our heated core will blow out and significantly increase the radon gas emissions. With that we will become an attractor for ionized bodies in near space. Birkeland currents may be drawn down to this charged body.

    Bear in mind this theory is not establishment concepts. It is a theory built on an unsubstantiated energy that can expand space vigorously and hence compress lesser energies like heliospheres. Science does not build theories on unseen and unverified periodic energy appearances.
