    Is it possibly to harness the magnetic pull of the moon?

    We know that the moon's pull on the earth is so powerful that as it circles the earth it draws billions of tons of water towards it - hence the tides.   Is it possible to focus some of that pull and use it as a power source?

    It's NOT magnetism, it's the MASS of the moon. Tidal power is already harnessed in some parts of the world, using tidal barriers.

      Thanks, DreamerMeg.  I know it's recognized as a different type of force. Can it be 'focused?'  Imagine the possibilities if it could.  And it's said that what can be imagined can be achieved.
