What was that PSU? Just some random, shameless, pointless plug? I don't get it?
Waver: I believe that Einstein's General Theory of Relativity would give some explanation to the moon's varying phase-gravitational pull in its description of the gravitational tendencies of planetary bodies and the "fabric" of the universe. Though I know these effects are not noticeable at the Earth's distance from a relatively small body such as the moon, I'm not sure whether we have the technology/instruments to measure these differences or not.
P.S. Yes I did see the rolling eyes smiley face, but I just couldn't help it. Besides, maybe someone else actually is interested. Anyone want to chime in on the astrophysics thread?
