Does the moon rotate?
I'd post a poll but I cannot do so since I'm not a paying member. I just wanted to see how many of you understand some basics of science and astronomy.

So, does the moon rotate?

Of course it rotates. If it didn't rotate we would get to see the dark side of the moon as we rotate. It's actually called tidal lock.

It's called tidal locking.

A tidally locked body takes just as long to rotate around its own axis as it does to revolve around its partner.

I think people are confusing rotation with orbit. Damn. What the hell are they learning in school?

I dunno. Perhaps you should start a thread on that topic. I would suggest you want to keep buying our oil, otherwise your already failing economy would crash and burn disasterously overnight.

Don't piss me off yank. All I have to do is turn off the tap and you go back to the stoneage.

It's tidally locked, so it has to rotate. If it didn't rotate, we would see the other side of the moon as well.

Hold a golfball or marble or something in one hand and make it rotate around your other hand like it's in orbit. As you move it pay attention to which side of your moon is facing your earth.

If Earth suddenly went missing, what motions would the moon display?
