So how the hell does the Moon stay in Orbit around the Earth? As far as I’m aware there is still no true understanding of Gravity. Yes Things that have more mass attract things with less mass. I get that. Though nobody knows “Why”. Now let’s apply that logic to the Moon... Earth has a far greater mass than the Moon. Therefore the Moon should slam into Earth any day now. Unless there is an outside force that is “pulling” the Moon from the opposite direction away from Earth. WTF?
