Day 62/67 of GED in Five Months, Perpetual Motion, and graphic proof

If proof lies in seeing with our own eyes, then those ideas which you can graph and derive from laws must be true, or are they?

Like the moon forever in orbit around the earth, some proofs take a bit more time than others…

Today’s reading: Newton’s laws of motion need to be examined in greater detail in order to answer questions that derive from those laws, just as in mathematics, one derives a proof from various postulates and laws of mathematics.

As it turns out, the moon is very nearly a perpetual motion machine. It goes around the earth every month and has been doing so at almost constant speed for a very long time. Even so, with advanced instruments and careful measurements, we can determine that the moon’s motion is changing: it gets farther away from the earth on average by about two centimeters each year. Why?
