Earth Has a Ring Too

Lonnehart on June 2, 2010

Earth also has a ring. The ring is 50 years old and it's pretty dangerous up there thanks to it. However, it DID posess a natural ring long ago. This ring formed after a planet the size of Mars (named Thea) crashed into the Earth right after it finished forming. Where is this ring, you ask? It came together and formed the Moon (and thank goodness it did or we wouldn't be here now).

There's a lot more space junk than is depicted here. 50,000 pieces, I think. Everything from satellite parts to tiny paint chips. Good thing I didn't draw all that junk… it'd have taken me too long to finish this comic… But I'm sure someone's gonna feel overworked anyway… >:-D
