The Moon presents us almost daily with its exuberant beauty in the sky. It is there, about 400 thousand km from the Earth, balancing our climate, our rotation and our life in general. But unless she simply explodes in a thousand pieces, you can rest easy, for there are no apparent reasons why she should disappear.

 Earth and Moon.

What if in any case it ceased to exist? Well, the short answer is that our planet would be uninhabitable. The long one we will see next.

One fact is: that rock that hangs over our sky is far more important than you think. Without it our planet would be a complete chaos, we would have extensive droughts, our orbit would destabilize and even our seasons would be affected.

The Moon regulates our rotation, climate, tides and etc. through the exchange of gravitational pulls between it and Earth itself. That keeps everything in place. The disappearing satellite would make our planet uninhabitable in a very short time. First, we would have strong droughts because of the imbalance of the climate, in some points of the planets the winds would arrive at absurd speeds - all this making the life around here somewhat complicated.

Thousands of ecosystems would die in the absence of the tide, since much of it is caused by the attraction of the Moon and a little of the Sun. Our orbit would also be totally unbalanced, since the lack of gravitational pulls would cause our planet to be in a more elliptical orbit. With the sudden lack of the Moon, the axis of the Earth would also change very fast, which would affect our stations directly. It could make one of the poles receive sunlight 24 hours a day, and some of the continents would be in complete darkness.

There are spots on the planet where you would see unseen climatic events. In this way, we conclude that our Moon is extraordinarily important for the Earth and all the living beings that inhabit it. In addition to brightening our nights, it balances our fragile planet.
