I've read that if a satellite is in low orbit around the Earth, the increased friction due to the atmosphere causing the satellite to slow down and finally fall back to Earth. What if a large celestial body such as the moon is slowed down by some means? Will it eventually fall to Earth? I suppose that if the moon is slowed down slightly, it will slowly, but surely, fall to Earth. While a larger deceleration will cause the moon to fall to Earth faster. Am I correct here?
