    It's because we've mined so much cheese from it.

    You'd experience some shrinkage too if you had the entire planet watching you every night... Judging you... You know, because the moon doesn't have any clothes on!

    And to the user who said "that's not good", it really won't matter, because its just a function of thermal contraction, and likely won't even have any noticable effects for millions of years. Earth has tectonic motion, why can't the moon have something similar?

    Actually, it's not even that it won't have noticeable effects for millions of years, it's that it basically doesn't really matter much at all. The mass isn't changing, so there's no real issue. And any changes to topography are really small, so it's not like it's going to change significantly or darken.

    I mean, we can't even go there, so really this is just an interesting thing that can help us calculate some stuff.

    Are you implying the various manned moon landings didn't happen?

    If the Moon is shrinking that means that the Werewolves aren't gone to wolves anymore.

    It's the moon. It doesn't play a critical part in anything involving Earth. Doesn't really matter if it shrinks a bit.

    Except, you know, the tides and all related ecosystems. Though this shrinkage is not even close to enough to have any effect on those.
