Origins and Earliest History

The Moon originated outside of the Sol system; it was originally the moon of the Cthalctose homeworld around 60 million years BCE. At that time it housed the Genesis of Cthalctose which was designed to terraform alien worlds (such as, in the future, Earth) to an environment capable of supporting their species. (NA: Eternity Weeps)

In the real world, however, scientific consensus is that the Moon likely formed due to an impact between earth and another celestial body in the early formation of the solar system.

Later Pre-History

The Silurians went into hibernation because of the appearance of a "small planet" near Earth, the Silurian home planet at that time, which they believed would devastate their world. (DW: Doctor Who and the Silurians)

The Doctor concluded that this referred to the Moon.

Human Era

19th century

In 1878, secretly, as Queen Victoria watched, three British spacecraft, the Cygnus, the Draco and the Lynx launched from rural Scotland. (PDA: Imperial Moon)

20th century

Early 20th century

Some time prior to 2001 there was a base on the Moon at Tycho crater. Movements suggesting active life forms further north in the Eratosthenes crater were spotted as early as 1924. (WEB: visittorchwood.co.uk)

Circa 1959, a alien group landed on the Moon and sent a transmission to Earth. They requested a meeting with the Humans so they could share technology. The American government intercepted the transmission and started NASA's moon project to meet them. (WC: Blue Moon)

Apollo 11 landing
See separate article.

According to most historical accounts, humans officially first set foot on the moon on 20th July 1969.

Contradicting this, one account shows three Human astronauts landing on the Moon in the year 1970, apparently for the first time. As well as spotting the Doctor's TARDIS, they also got in some trouble. (TVC: Moon Landing)

At some point after 1969, the Doctor intended to take Rose Tyler to the Moon, making her unofficially the first Human female to set foot there, but this plan went awry. (NSA: I am a Dalek)

According to one account, Moon landings became routine in a fairly short while. (DWA: Soldiers from Zolta)

The Cyber-Fleet in orbit of the Moon. (DW: Silver Nemesis)
Later 20th century

By the late 20th century, the Cybermen had established a base on the Dark Side of the Moon. The base served as the staging area for a fleet poised to invade Earth. It also could fire missiles at approaching craft (such as the Doctor's TARDIS which briefly materialised in space nearby). (DW: The Invasion) The base (or another one) still existed in 1985 (DW: Attack of the Cybermen) and in 1988, the Cyber-Fleet orbited the Moon and waited for the Cyber-Leader, already on Earth, to acquire the Nemesis so that the Fleet could land, conquer Earth and convert the planet into New Mondas. The Nemesis, sent to rendezvous with the Fleet, exploded and destroyed the entire fleet. (DW: Silver Nemesis)

In the 1970s, the Daleks established a base on the Moon and contacted Professor Pillbright, offering him use of their disintegrator weapon in exchange for his servitude. The Doctor went to the Moon and destroyed their base with a neutron bomb. (TVC: The Disintegrator)

In 1992, the Timewyrm created a replica of Victorian-era Cheldon Bonniface on the Moon in order to trap the Doctor. (NA: Timewyrm: Revelation)

Some time before 2059 the notable space pioneer Adelaide Brooke became the second female britain to land on the moon

21st century

2000s
"Judoon platoon upon the Moon"

The Moon was, up until (and possibly beyond) the 21st century, considered neutral ground under Galactic Law, meaning that if law-enforcement agents such as the Judoon, who would have broken Galactic Law to conduct their affairs on Earth, had free reign to do so on its satellite. Accordingly, the Royal Hope Hospital was transported from London to the Moon, through the use of an H2O Scoop, by Judoon during their search for a Plasmavore murderer. (DW: Smith and Jones)

Mr Smith drags the Moon down to Earth

In 2009 the Moon nearly collided into the Earth as part of Mr Smith's plan to destroy Earth using Luke Smith, whose natural power of telekinesis a device named MITRE had amplified. Earth's weather was affected worldwide. However, with Mr Smith "reprogrammed" by a computer virus, Mr Smith had Luke reposition the Moon back into its original orbit. (SJA: The Lost Boy) A few months later, Earth was relocated to the Medusa Cascade by the Daleks; the Moon, however, remained behind, though it is not known how it maintained its position until Earth was returned to its original location. (DW: The Stolen Earth / Journey's End)

Human Colonization of the Moon

By 2015, when the Doctor and Turlough visited it, Humans had established Lunar Village One. Here they stopped a pair of Dryrth criminals looking for treasure left on the Moon by their people. (DWM: The Lunar Strangers)

In 2070, when Cybermen landed there, a Moonbase housed the Gravitron, a machine that regulated Earth's weather. (DW: The Moonbase) At another time, another base function as a T-Mat relay, co-ordinating T-Mat on Earth. A T-Mat link enabled a person to travel from Earth to the Moon in seconds, until a group of Ice Warriors decided to sabotage the relay. (DW: The Seeds of Death).

The Human moonbase in 2070. (DW: The Moonbase

Later History

By 2540, it served as a penal colony for dissidents against the war between Earth's empire and the Draconians. (DW: Frontier in Space)

Circa the 30th century, Earth scientists were digging for resources on the moon as Earth had begun to run out. (TDL: The Dust of Ages)

Destruction of the Moon

Circa the 53rd century, the Threshold had established Wormwood, a replica of a late 19th century American frontier town on the Moon as well as the superweapon known as the Eye of Disharmony. When the Doctor's traveling companions Izzy Sinclair and Feyde sabotaged the Eye of Disharmony, the resulting feedback destroyed the Moon. (DWM: Wormwood)

Other Moons

In the time of the Fourth Great and Bountiful Human Empire, the Earth had five moons. A penal colony still existed at this time. (DW: The Long Game, Bad Wolf)

Biological Effects

Werewolves, such as the Host, were transformed from their human form into their wolf form whenever they came under the moonlight. The Doctor, through a telescope at Torchwood House, concentrated moonlight into a laser-like beam which killed the Host, saving Queen Victoria of England. (DW: Tooth and Claw)

History

Legend has it that it's made out of green cheese. Solomon Grundy was briefly exiled to the Moon after his second battle with Green Lantern (Alan Scott).[citation needed] More notably is the fact that the Justice League Watchtower was located here. The moon also became the base of operations for the deity known as Eclipso. The heroes of Earth once staged a massive assault against Eclipso's citadel - a fight that cost the life of Will Payton, aka, Starman. [1]

Superman Movies

In the second Superman movie, the Moon was the site of the first contact between Phantom Zone criminals Zod, Non and Ursa.

Wildstorm Universe

During the leading events to the World's End event during the events of Number of the Beast, the moon was heavily and partially destroyed and scattered into many pieces by a battle between The High and one of his rampant "Reaper" clones.[2]

From Muppet Wiki

The Moon is the natural satellite orbiting the Earth (although most planets in the universe have their own moons). The average distance from the Moon to the Earth is 384,403 kilometers. The moon serves as a source of illumination at night, but only through reflected light from the Sun.

The Moon has long held a fascination for mankind. However, while some might like to visit for one afternoon, outside of professional astronauts, experts have stated that they don't think they'd like to live there. The two most notable space exploration agencies are NASA, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and its counterpart WASA, the Worm Aeronautics and Space Administration.

In 1969, NASA launched the Apollo 11 mission, which became the first such mission to successfully land. Commander Neil Armstrong became the first man on the moon, and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin became the second. Aldrin's experience gave him great insight into the moon's geological structure; in Sesame Street episode 4090, he shares that expertise with Cookie Monster, assuring him that the moon is made of rock and is not, in fact, a cookie. Not to be outdone by Aldrin and the human race, in 1997, WASA sent Slimey the Worm on a space mission, making him the first worm on the moon.

The moon, due to its round shape and topographical craters which at times resemble facial features, has often prompted anthropomorphic representations, such as The Man in the Moon and the moon in "Elmo's World: Sky." It is believed that the one true moon is in fact Luna, good friend to Bear on Bear in the Big Blue House. The moon, in its crescent phase, resembles a letter C. It is not, however, a cookie.

There is more information available on this subject at Luna on the English-language Wikipedia.
Luna in the mid-26th century, approximately 2552.

Luna, often referred to as the Moon, is the only natural satellite of Earth. Humans began settling on Luna in 2080.[1] As of 2525, the Luna OCS Academy was located there.[2] Due to its still barren face, one can assume it has not been terraformed, probably a result of Luna's low gravity and lack of atmosphere. It is likely Luna was evacuated during the Battle of Earth.
