Shaquille O’Neal believes that the Earth has two moons because he saw it in two different locations while driving
Shaquille O’Neal shared an interesting theory about Earth and the moon on a recent NBA on TNT broadcast.
I know what you’re thinking, Shaq was probably questioning the moon landing but that was NOT the case. Instead, he talked about how Earth has not one, but TWO MOONS.
Shaquille O’Neal: Planet Earth has Two Moons
Shaq’s two-moon theory started because he was recently driving past Auburn and he first saw the moon on the left side of the road. As he kept driving straight, 20 minutes later, the moon was suddenly behind him. Chuck, as always, was having none of it, telling Shaq that the “moon was movin’ fool”, which obviously, is the likely scenario.
Maybe, just maybe, Shaq is onto something.
The quasi-moon—named Kamo’oalewa, after a Hawaiian word that refers to a moving celestial object—is not much to speak of, measuring less than 50 m (164 ft) across. It circles the Earth in a repeating corkscrew-like trajectory that brings it no closer than 40 to 100 times the 384,000 km (239,000 mi.) distance of our more familiar moon. Its odd flight path is caused by the competing gravitational pulls of the Earth and the sun, which continually bend and torque the moonlet’s motions, preventing it from achieving a more conventional orbit.
Yeah I have no idea what TIME is talking about. That makes zero sense to me, much like everything else that happens in space.
Here’s what I do know.
I’m not buying anything NASA, TIME, or Shaq is selling. There’s literally one moon in the sky. Just because it fucking moved doesn’t mean it was in two locations at once. Honestly, no one can even prove otherwise. No one can prove that there are or are not aliens and honestly, no one can prove if the Earth is flat either.
Humans stopped going to the moon back in 1972. Why? I have no idea, and it really doesn’t seem like anyone wants to talk about it or provide any reason as to why that is reportedly the case. Elon Musk is trying to go back to the moon, but he’s occupied firing all the cry baby employees at Twitter. Maybe once he handles that, we’ll finally get some real answers about what’s happening in space.
Regardless, while I absolutely love the banter between Barkley and Shaq, it’s pretty funny that Shaquille O’Neal can come out and say this on the NBA on TNT broadcast and no one bats an eye but if anyone mentions the flat-earth theory they are basically cancelled and people try to wipe whoever mentioned it from the internet.
If we are talking two moons then let’s also talk flat-earth and if humans have ever traveled to the moon in the first place. I’m 100% in on adding a NBA on TNT conspiracy theory segment to the broadcast on a nightly basis.
