Could the moon ever be pushed from orbit like in ‘Moonfall’?

The moon has been Earth’s close companion for billions of years, and while our view of its shape and size varies somewhat as it orbits our planet, it remains a constant presence in the sky. But could that change? 

In the 2022 movie “Moonfall” (Lionsgate, released on Feb. 4), a mysterious force ejects the moon from orbit and propels it on a collision course toward Earth, with a planet-smashing impact looming in just a few weeks. (Caution, spoilers ahead.) When confronted with this high-stakes and over-the-top disaster scenario, the film’s characters scramble to save the planet; in doing so, they learn that our natural satellite isn’t so natural after all.
