Is the Moon drifting away from Earth?

There is some debate as to whether or not the Moon is drifting away from Earth, but there is no clear evidence that supports this claim. Some people believe that the force exerted by our planet’s gravity causes occasional disturbances in the moon’s orbit, which could be leading to its gradual separation from Earth.
Others argue that although it might be slowly moving away, the moons’ gravitational interaction remains strong enough to keep it bound together as a single body. The answer may still remain unknown for some time yet, so it is best to take any such claims with a grain of salt until more conclusive evidence becomes available.
