The Moon's Gravitational Power

The Hidden Force Explained

Our Moon

The Moon has long been regarded as a mystery, or something to be seen in the night sky until July 20, 1969 when Neil Armstrong became the very first man to walk on the Moon discovering it's barren landscape. The complete truth is that much about the Moon is now known due to it's emptiness but many theories have been created with evidence to support them in the Moon's greater role in Earth's natural functions.


Our Moon played an important role in the creation of life on Earth as well as preserving the life as well. Created when our solar system was in its infancy another forming planet smashed into our Earth throwing a chunk of matter forming our Moon. Our Moon's gravity is thought to be in control of our tides causing our oceans to bulge outwards when facing directly towards or directly away from our Moon. Without these tidal changes life on Earth would have been impossible for many species because they rely on these tides to help guide them.


The Moon's gravitational pull on our Earth is theorized to keep Earth's axis under control preventing our Earth from tipping over and rotating all over the place, however this could only happen if our Moon were removed entirely. Our Moon is also thought to protect Earth from many of the asteroids being flung towards it because our Moon's gravity catches these asteroids and pulls them towards it as they come closer causing them to impact our Moon instead of our Earth.


The Moon has many ways of expressing it's nature to us whether it be it's serene beauty in the night sky or the way it's used for science it remains certain that it is there because of pure chance. We are here not because that was how it was meant to happen but because our Moon made it so.
