Since the distance between Earth and the Moon is increasing by 3.8 cm per year, will Earth ever lose it's only natural satelite? If so, when?
It will eventually happen, but we defiantly won't be alive, and chance are that the human race will probably be gone too.
As the moon moves further away, the earth's axis will tilt and move more, becoming more like Mars. There will be major weather changes. But again, nothing we can do and we'll be dead.
Yes. Right around the same time the sun expands into red giant stage and burns everything out to the asteroid belt to a chunk of irradiated carbon molecules.
3 billion years or so.
According to Wikipedia, no. As the moon recedes, it ever so slightly slows down the earth's rotation, instead.
space is sooo big that 3.8cm a year is nothing... if it does happen it wont be in our life time thats for sure lol
I don't think so - but then again I don't know much about that stuff, I guess anything could happen.
not for a few million years!
