It might not be so bad, because they are transparent. saturn`s rings are made up of dust and small rocks. light and heat can pass through it, like our ozone layer. It`d probably just make the earth a bit cooler but not by much.
either way it`s a pretty idea, but no sense fretting over cause it`ll never happen
I`d be interested to see how the rings shadow did fall and what impact it did have. Presumably the greatest impact would be on the polar areas.
but they look awesome!!
We technically already do. It`s too thin and spread out to see though.
[quote]lets trash the moon, and get us some rings! but make them like a crystal that would break up the light and make it look like a trippy rainbow.[/quote]
That would be a very bad idea. Having the moon in one piece plays an important role in life on Earth. Breaking it up would have some bad effects.
It would be easier to grab some asteroids and tow them in, anyway.
Our moon is exceptionally big in terms of moon size compared to planet size. Given the amount of gravity our planet "makes" compared to the amount of gravity our moon "makes", it might not be possible for us to have rings. Then again, it might.
lol. We don`t. I doubt this will ever happen, ie; the sun will engulf the earth before `tidal effects` break up the moon.
Anyway, it would make satellites of any kind impossible.
Then Earth`s pull will tear it apart once inside the Roche lobe and we should have a thin ring.
But I digress, all the cool planets have rings. We should install some.
