The Moon is Earth's only natural satellite. It is the fifth largest satellite in the Solar System and the largest and most massive relative to its parent planet, with a diameter about one-quarter that of Earth. The brightest and largest object in our night sky, the Moon makes Earth a more livable planet

Scientists have long estimated that the moon formed some 4.50 billion years (4,500,000,000) ago when a Mars-sized object smashed into Earth.

Could I jump from the Moon and land back to Earth?

No. Moon gravity is about 1/6 of earth gravity, so assuming you can get your body to have the same kinetic energy on the moon as you can on earth, you would only be able to jump 6 times higher than you can on earth. So there is no way you could jump high enough to get to the “neutral” point between the earth and the moon where earth’s gravitational pull could start to accelerate you towards earth. The neutral point is about 43,000 miles above the moon.

If moon falls on earth?

if the moon actually struck the planet, it would be an extinction like the world has never seen. The asteroid which killed the dinosaurs, along with three quarters of all the life on Earth, was only about 12 kilometers in diameter where as diameter of moon is 3 474.8 kilometers.
The moon crashing into the Earth would liquify the entire planet, and there would not likely be any solid ground or non-molten rock left anywhere for many years.

Why doesn't the moon fall into the earth?

The Moon does not crash into the Earth because it is in a stable orbit around our planet. This orbit is maintained by the balance between the gravitational attraction between the Earth and the Moon and the Moon's forward motion, which is determined by its velocity.
Another important factor that prevents the Moon from crashing into the Earth is the fact that the Moon is also rotating on its axis. This rotation means that the Moon is not just moving around the Earth, but it is also spinning on its own axis. This angular momentum due to rotation,helps to keep the Moon in its stable orbit and prevents it from crashing into the Earth.

The brightest and largest object in our night sky, the Moon makes Earth a more livable planet by moderating our home planet’s wobble on its axis, leading to a relatively stable climate. It also causes tides, creating a rhythm that has guided humans for thousands of years.

can we live without moon?

The gravitational pull of the moon moderates Earth's wobble, keeping the climate stable. That's a boon for life. Without it, we could have enormous climate mood swings over billions of years, with different areas getting extraordinarily hot and then plunging into long ice ages

Deep impact-Formation of Moon

What is most widely accepted today is the giant-impact theory. It proposes that the Moon formed during a collision between the Earth and another small planet, about the size of Mars. The debris from this impact collected in an orbit around Earth to form the Moon.

What if Moon explodes?.

If moon was closer to Earth

if the Moon got really close to the Earth, you’d have massive tides to contend with. There would be a lot of coastal flooding. There would be a lot more gravitational influence on the interior of the Earth, so you might also churn up and heat some mantle, leading to a lot more volcanism and earthquakes

What is Lunar Eclipse

A lunar eclipse is an astronomical event that occurs when the Moon moves into the Earth's shadow, causing the moon to be darkened. Such alignment occurs during an eclipse season, approximately every six months, during the full moon phase, when the Moon's orbital plane is closest to the plane of the Earth's orbit.

What is Milk Moon?

The Anglo-Saxon name for May's brightest Moon phase is Milk Moon from the Old English Rimilcemona. It means three-milkings-month in modern English because cows were milked three times a day during this time of year.

What is Banana Moon?
It is an intermediary phase between the Third Quarter and the New Moon (when the Moon is almost invisible). The term Crescent refers to its shape. In this phase, the Moon looks like a boat or a banana
What is New Moon?

The new moon is the first lunar phase, when the Moon and Sun have the same ecliptic longitude. At this phase, the lunar disk is not visible to the naked eye, except when it is silhouetted against the Sun during a solar eclipse

Why we see same side of moon?

We always see the same side of the moon because the period of rotation of the moon on its axis is equal to the period of its revolution around the earth, so we only see the side that faces us and this side faces at us all the time.
