    You can generate a current in a wire held stationary in the Earth's magnetic field while it turns.  That's how a dynamo works.  It just doesn't make any economic sense.  We'd do better to use photo-voltaics and beam the energy back to earth.

      there to generate electricity even besides that -  like using gravity from the moon (heck, does anyone even know what gravity is?) via its ability to move the oceans and photons from an entity 93 million miles away . . . .

      Who knows, maybe someday something like that will pan out
