How else would we measure that the moon is moving away?

If accurate enough (and photons are really massless), we could probably use a laser and measure how long time it would take for the beam to get back.
But that will require very accurate measurements and a very accurate beam aswell.

Nice pictures, they're amazing. :)

And a friend of mine just posted this on their Facebook profile:

"Wechoosethemoon.org is an interactive experience recreating the historic Apollo 11 mission to the Moon in real time. Once where only three men made the trip, now millions can. Live event begins 9:32 AM EDT July 16, 2009. Exactly 40 years after Apollo 11 lifted off."

Not really possible. How would we be able to accurately measure it moving away with no specific point mapped to aim at each year. The moon has mountains and craters. You can't just aim a laser and say how it has moved. It could leap thousands of feet in two attempts.

What about the java applet?
