One of the Moon’s most noticeable effects is (or was) the tides. If the Moon was no longer there, the oceans of the world become much calmer. The Sun still has an effect on them (known as solar tides), so the waves wouldn’t be completely gone. But the oceans would largely become calm. The consequences of low tides would be droughts, famines, and deserves.
Because the moon was smashed by an asteroid most likely debris would rain down from space to Earth. This could possible last for many years. And dodging moon rock would only be a slight concern compared to the climate changes.
Billions of years ago a commet hit the moon and created the largest created in the entire solar system. This created is known as Atiken Basin. It is 2500 kilometers and located in the South Pole on the moon.
Many scientists believe that Mars experienced a similar scenario with its moon. Mars has a tilt of over sixty degrees. This is the kind of tilt that the destruction of a moon causes. This can be the reason Mars is now a barren plant when it was once filled with water
