Hello, I am not a physicist and I am writing a fictious story about earth's distant future so I would like to base it as possibly close to a plausible scenario. Therefore I ask for your help. Assume that the moon is blown up. Would that cause the earth's rotation to slowly fade away? And if yes how long would that take? When will the sun be a white dwarf and what would the earth's state be by then? Would earth have been swallowed during the giant phase or not? Would it's rotation change by the sun's transformation? If the sun turns to a white dwarf will the habitable zone shrink in diameter and will earth be left outside it? If one side is constantly facing the white dwarf how will that affect the climate? Will one side be inflamed or more like a dessert? Would the oceans evaporate? In the twilight zone ring between the two sides could vegetation exist without a day/night cycle? Thank you in advance and I apologise if hypothetical and uninformed questions are off topic.
