What would happen if the moon disappeared?

The Moon has been connected to the Earth for the vast majority of its 4.5 billion-year orbit around the Sun. Astrophysicists speculate that the Moon's origin lies in an ancient collision, when a Mars-sized body collided with our planet, sending massive amounts of debris into space. The resulting materials came together through gravity to form what we now know as moon.

We and the rest of life on Earth are so accustomed to the presence of the Moon that it is difficult to imagine what existence on Earth would be like if our natural satellite suddenly disappeared.
