What would happen to our moon, if Earth was donut-shaped?🌎
The good news is, we'd still have it. Most likely, it would be pulled towards the hole, and bob up and down in the middle of the planet. Or, it could be affected by the gravity of the donut's outer edges, and create a figure eight orbit around Earth.
The bad news is, either of these orbits would affect the tides on Earth, and wreak a little havoc. Oceans could have such unstable water levels that having coastal cities might not be a thing.
