The Moon is moving away from the Earth and it could have consequences, according to scientists
With each passing year, the Moon more and further recedes from Earth.
The scientists examined the surface, collected rock and dirt, and installed a lunar reflector.
In order for a laser shot from Jupiter to accurately measure Earth's distance from the Moon.
The Moon is receding from Earth at a rate of 3.8 centimetres per year, and we can now measure this motion thanks to these reflectors (more precisely 3.78 centimetres).
Our planet's deformation along the Earth-Moon axis causes friction, which in turn dissipates energy as heat.
Over years, the Earth's orbit and axis affect its sunlight distribution.
