To my knowledge, there are no plans to move
moon, because it would require an incredibly
amount of energy. However, the orbit of the moon
is changing all the time! The Earth's rate of
spinning is gradually slowing down, and as it
the moon is gradually getting further away from
the Earth at a rate of about 38mm per year. The
energy of the Earth spinning is being transferred
to the moon, causing it to speed up and be
away. You can relate it to a merry-go-round,
the moon is attached to the Earth that is
at the center.
