The Influence of the Moon
There are three ways as to how the moon can affect life on earth:
The moon has been embedded in many life cycles of many organisms. It has been there ever since the evolution has been taking place, even far longer than that.

The tidal range is one of the most significant and observable effects the Moon has on Earth.
It has been shown in studies that the animals who habitat in coasts and seashores such as limpets, were found to be stronger than any man-made material ever made due to their remarkable adaptability to survive in ever-changing conditions.
There are organisms that have adapted to the fluctuating light levels that are being reflected by the Moon in which some rely on the moonlight to be able to navigate and procreate.
A great example for this is the Ephedra foeminea which is a plant that requires moonlight to produce sparkling droplets for it to be pollinated. Another is the dung beetles in which relies on the moonlight for navigation for safe travel.
Our imagined moon has long inspired fear, excitement, hubris, and political ambition – fact and myth, science and science fiction have always intertwined.
Some of the engineers who advised Fritz Lang on his 1929 film, Frau im Mond went on to develop the first rocket capable of reaching space, Germany’s V-2. When they later moved to Huntsville, they took with them not just their know‑how but also Lang’s anticipation-quickening innovation of counting down the seconds before the rocket’s launch.
Despite the lack of scientific evidence, many people believe in the moon's ability to change their behaviour and hold an uncanny power over them.
Hospitals, police stations and emergency phone lines report a big surge of cases on full moon nights, and they all cannot be wrong every time.
If we detonated a nuclear weapon on the moon, the lack of an atmosphere on the moon would mean no mushroom cloud or shockwave, but anyone viewing the blast would likely get a fatal dose of ionizing radiation.
The explosion would probably cause moon debris ejected into space that will also strike Earth.
