Is there anything we can do to change the orbit of the moon?

    There is probably not a way to change the orbit of the moon – and that’s a good thing.  The moon’s orbit affects natural systems here on Earth, most notably by causing ocean tides.  Some of the most productive marine ecosystems in the world have evolved over millions of years to depend on the daily cycle of tides for survival in near-shore environments.  The marine invertebrates and fishes dependent on tides in turn feed sea birds and other larger animals, as well as huge human populations in coastal areas.  Changing the moon’s orbit would probably disrupt all of this – but fortunately, it’s not likely to become technologically feasible any time soon, either.
