It WASHINGTON (UPD It may be that all of us plants, animals, people owe our existence to the moon. This possibility was raised Thursday In a paper given by Dr. S. Fred Singer, University of Miami, at the 133rd annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Working backward In time, Doctor Singer concluded that the moon may once have been an Independent body, formed about the same time as the Earth and other planets some 4.7 billion years ago. Three to four billion years ago it came close enough to be captured by the earth's gravitational field. It approached within 12,000 miles of the earth. Giant tides were raised in both the moon's and the earth's solid matter. A "push-pull" or pumping tidal effect was produced. The consequences to the moon were catastrophic. Great masses of matter were torn off during times of close approach. Then as the satellite moved away, these masses crashed back into its surface. The effect of the moon's close approach on the earth also was violent Tidal friction caused extreme heating. Suddenly there was Intense volcanlo activity, which rapidly released to the surface such gases as water vapor, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen. This, Doctor Singer suggested, may have been the origin of the primitive atmosphere and of the great oceans in which life is assumed to have been born. Dr. Donald M. Mensel of the Harvard College Observatory and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Laboratory at Cambridge, Mass., said he believed there was "a real possibility" that men in the next 15 to 20 years would "establish self-supporting" exploration bases on the moon. Doctor Mensel, a distinguished astronomer, said that If moon rocks are like earth rocks, they contain a great deal of chemically bound water which can be released with the help of solar or perhaps nuclear energy. Given water, he said, "lunar gardens" could be started and certain forms of both vegetable and animal life supported. r f . y ' ermrrmjM More doctors IchilHren 1 more mothers buy it... recommend it...Mf?!m because it was (Spy' the first aspirin created to answer the special wT - S l --:h(Mhity.&sBtw-.. needs of children IL 1J Invtstment I Ppv I a "!"
