Its true…. The Moon's orbit (its circular path around the Earth) is indeed getting larger, at a rate of about 3.8 centimeters per year... this is caused by the ocean’s tidal forces . The Earth's rotation is slowing down because of this. In fact, in one hundred years from now, the day will be 2 milliseconds longer than it is now… we’ll remind you to adjust your clocks when its time.
