This question already has an answer here:
- Why does the moon drift away from earth? 3 answers
I understand how mathematically is possible to have one object with elliptical or circular orbit around another object in space.
so can I think of it as a limit cycle? If yes, then is it stable or unstable? and why?
The intuition behind my question is to know if due to friction we will have a Moon-Earth collision or not.
