@RedGrittyBrick No (is the wording particularly wooden?). I'll add them.

comment A rope attaches the Moon to the Earth. What happens?
@WetSavannaAnimalakaRodVance It is true; the edit was due to the (surprising) failure to realise the irrelevancy of a real string breaking. However, surely if option 1 were to occur, the distance between their COM would decrease with time?

@dmckee You're right. I really meant 'ignore any effects of the moon's axial rotation' (i.e. assume the string is attached to the moon's centre and can move through the Moon without resistance).

Would the close-voter care to explain how I could improve this question? I must commend how quickly you have read through the question.
