I am taking a fun clas on practical science fiction, and a thought comes to
me....  Considering the delicate balance of gravity relations between the earth,
sun and moon,
Well, let me put it this way:  Is it really that delicate?  Can a global
disaster result from a shift in the lunar path?  Or if the amount of water that
"cusions" these shifting gravitational pulls changes?  [I'm a musician  :)]
