    Hello there, I'm not to sure if this is going to be the correct place to post, however the entire reasoning for registering on this site is that I'm writing my latest novel and I'm looking for a little bit legitimacy, if you would, for a few scenarios. Being the creative type I do lack quite a bit of the advanced scientific knowledge most of the people on this forum do, so I'm curious to see what the hard science behind my ideas are, so that they aren't so fantastic and out there and seem a bit more grounded.

    The first has to do with the moon. I understand that it has 1/6th the gravity of Earth. Now my question is, what would happen if suddenly 1/8 of the surface vanished. Regardless of how it happened (black hole, giant ice cream scooper, you name it). What would happen to Earth, and what would happen to people standing on the surface of the moon, both near the part that vanished, or on the polar opposite side (regardless of if the event itself caused any harm to them).

    That's really the main one for now. I appreciate any help I can get.

    Thank you.

    1/8 of the surface vanished? Unless you remove volume, not much will happen.
