Just an idea to run past you all but if the moons moving away due to the earth then wouldn't it be logical to suspect the moon will lose how much it moves year by year.As its like if you have to magnets you put N and N together they will push each other apart until they are far enough away if that's the case the moon should stop moving somewhere down the line.

Also could the sun be the cause of why the moon is leaving us slowly i mean its got its own gravity and its expanding isn't it?

Why does Pioneer 10 deviate from its orbit and travel at a decreasing velocity?


Why does the moon gradually get away from the earth?


Why does Mercury conduct precession?


Why is the earth rotation slowing down?


……


The answer is given as follows:


The Vorticity Force.

Zhuyh,

Please do not post links like this. I have already asked you not to do that. If you do it again, you will be banned.

The moon moving further away from the Earth because everything is ether moving closer or further, just be glad its not getting closer; that would give us our dooms day. But there is a way to bring it back when it begins to get to far away. I dont have a equation for this but one could be made. The voltage is the speed of electrons. But Einstein's theory of relativity says's nothing can go faster than light. If Einstein is correct there should be a voltage that can't be achieved because the electrons can't go any faster. Or perhaps and this is where the artificial gravity comes in. When the voltage goes high enough the electrons begin to increase in mass. When the electrons mass becomes high enough gravity should form. with enough gravity the air around the device will compress. And time will move faster. If this was connected to a radio like a plasma speaker, a gravity speaker could be made. But there may be a law preventing g's from being generated if not may be there should be. 1g is perfect for keeping the moon where it is, generating to many g's may add to the total g's of earth and bring the moon off orbit and could have more serious consequences. But if used by nasa this could bring the moon closer to earth. but if you went far away from our solar system where a massive amount of mass wont do any harm a time machine could be made. But a time machine would need so much mass that if placed to close to our solar system it could bring the planets off orbit. Do not attempt building this device without getting permission from the government.

That's misleading. There is no inherent reason for things to move closer to or further from other things. I've noticed that the distance from my bedroom door to my front door hasn't changed in quite some time.  lol!

The distance between the Earth and Moon is changingf because the Moon exerts tial forces on the Earth and those tidal forces do work on the Earth. This gives a decreasing total kinetic energy of the Earth/Moon system which results in the incerase in the Earth/Moon distance.

The voltage is the speed of electrons. But Einstein's theory of relativity says's nothing can go faster than light. If Einstein is correct there should be a voltage that can't be achieved because the electrons can't go any faster.
What does this have to do with the OP's question?

This
"The voltage is the speed of electrons. But Einstein's theory of relativity says's nothing can go faster than light. If Einstein is correct there should be a voltage that can't be achieved because the electrons can't go any faster." is mainly wrong anyway, so who cares what it has to do with the OP which was six years ago?
