Hello everyone, 

 

I thought I would post a fun little concept up for discussion. What would life be like if our moon had its own moon? One that is spherical and orbited it at a decent pace. Could such a change drastically effect tides, eclipses, evolution, and etc? Plus. If we could construct a synthetic and miniature moon to put in its orbit would you agree to do it? Personally, I thought it would be a cool aesthetic if we could pull it off.

 

What do y'all think?

Considering the strong gravitational interaction between the Earth and the Moon it is highly unlikely that a natural object could be in a stable orbit around the moon.  As an alternate though exercise, consider what life on Earth would be like without  moon.

I would like to add that we do have artificial objects in orbit around the Earth from space debris to space stations.

Thanks for the post fahrquad. The question is merely an idea I though would have been a neat concept.
