Title: Luna is moving out
Post by: Hamzah on September 16, 2016, 03:41:04 PM
The Moon continues to spin away from the Earth, at the rate of 3.78cm (1.48in) per year, at about the same speed at which our fingernails grow.

Do you believe it?

The Luna will never leave us.

My belief or disbelief won't change anything.
And if it happens, will it stop and reverse at some point?
Do we have to do something about it?
Do we want to?
Can we?

Both Earth and Moon pick space dust all the time, which increases their masses, and their gravity slowly but steadily grows.
If the Moon is "spinning off", is it because of increasing revolution speed, or because of something else?
What else?

Your post doesn't give enough data, going to google for more.

Why?

Because a moon without a planet is no longer a moon.
It's a dysfunctional relationship, but Earth and Moon don't have any other options.

Moon's recession rate paradox:

Fun fact, the reason why it does this is because of tides. The tides are ever sob slightly in front of the moon because the earth's Rotarian is pulling them along too. The oceans try to move back to the moon, which creates friction with the earth, while the gravity of the oceans pulls the moon faster, increasing its orbital radius.

In short, the moon is slowing down the earth, and using that energy to get higher and higher.

Convince yourself that the Moon could not possibly cause the tides:

Moreover, we have the barometer pressure paradox:

https://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=30499.msg1707294#msg1707294

The barometric pressure paradox defies the moon's tidal locking mechanism.


Not to mention the acceleration of the rate of precession, another defiance of the moon's supposed tidal locking mechanism:

Actually, the rate of precession makes sense. If the earth is slowing down, the precession would increase.

As for The others, why would I take anything written on this forum as scientific fact?

No wonder why you said that. The code was broken, it's fixed now.

Saw it.
Earth's tidal bulge speeds up the Moon, increasing its centrifugal force and distance.

Possibly.
Don't know.

Anyway, it said nothing will change for our lives.

Its crazy how our moon used to be closer.

It can get much closer, if you zoom more.

Sandokhan, thank you for posting links to the walls of text, instead of posting the walls of text themselves.  Much appreciated!
