The Moon takes more than 4,000 million years accompanying Earth on its journey around the Sun. The gravitational interaction between the Earth and the moon have important effects on both objects. Now, what would happen if the Moon orbit us to stop and disappear between the confines of space.? What changes will produce on Earth?. Although it seems entirely unlikely the Moon moves away from us at a speed of 3.8 cm per year. It seems insignificant, but we multipliquemos 3.8 x million years ago, and it seems a considerable figure.? But well, we think that with one blow the Moon disappears suddenly for any reason that is.
The first consequence would be that we should not see ever more your bright circle in our night skies clear.The second consequence more important, land would be affected its biosphere. The gravitational effect that exerts the Moon is mutual, proof of this is without doubt, the effect of the tides, and its importance is vital. Without the action of tides, ocean currents would be much more weak and tend to the stagnation, the banks would lose its natural cleaning through the advance system and recoil of the waters, the channels of the cities would be stagnant. But exisistiria a problem more important is who is below: climate change if we abandoned the Moon in its orbit around the Earth, sufririamos global climatic consequences.The synchronization between your movement of rotation on itself and translation around the Earth causes that we always see the same face of the moon. This movement causes the axis of Earth’s rotation this anchored to a fixed position. Otherwise every few thousand years variarian the climate in different parts of the Earth radically, with the terrible consequences to the species by problems of adaptation and surely will produce mass extinctions. The angular momentum of the Earth also variaria and each time the Earth rotating a little more quickly. What if it is completely safe is that the Moon moves away from us, slowly, Yes, part of the energy generated by the Earth in its rotation is transferred to the satellite and vice versa. So, the earth rotates each time more slowly, about 1.5 milliseconds every 100 years, the Moon moves more quickly and as I say, away to about 3.8 cm per year.
