Storyline

As the Alphans are planning to explore the planet Ariel, a 'missile' attaches itself to the en route Eagle. Upon returning to Alpha, the 'missile' gives the Alphans a lunar atmosphere. But the joy at the possibility of making a new world out of the Moon is short lived, as the moon does not enter orbit around the planet or its sun, and Alpha faces destruction from the newly acquired lunar air.

After the moon is given an atmosphere, the gravity of the moon becomes earth-like for no apparent reason. Once the atmosphere is removed, the gravity is moon-like again. An atmosphere would not affect gravity. See more »

here you can see the effects

This is great and not only for the unbelievable story but in this episode something went completely wrong concerning the effects. It's so easy to spot that the eagles are hanging on wires when they are in the air. And just watch the infiny at the end, also easy to spot that it is just a curtain but if you can get past that part an laughing is over then you're ready for a great episode.

Moonbase transferred into an atmosphere just like earth done by aliens and just have a look how happy they are that they even are playing tennis. It even starts raining. Of course things just can happen what we do see here but place yourself back into 1976 when this was aired.
