Peak Daily Express

If you don't want to follow the link to the Express I'll summarize....

The Moon / Earth relationship is doomed. As the tidal effect of the Moon on the Earth brings the rotation of the Earth to a halt, the Moon will crash down,  obliterating all life.

Two minor caveats at the end of the story. First is that it won't happen for 6.5 bn years.

Second is that it won't happen at all. Because that will be 3 bn years after the Sun expands to be a red giant, burning both objects to crisps.

Maybe we can all relax, and worry about immigrants, house prices and the next  solar eclipse which will bring about the Second Coming.
