Everyone knows that the Moon is mostly responsible for our oceans’ tides (everyone does know that, right?), but just what would happen to the Earth if we didn’t have the Moon?

- The Earth and the Moon have been lying about their age
- We’re sending important cultural artifacts to the moon
- Scientists believe they’ve found evidence of the planet that collided with Earth and helped form our Moon
