Hey GLP'ers,
One astronomer friend of mine has told me that our moon has to be artificial and under power to resist rotation. In his opinion all celestial objects in our solar system have rotation like planets, asteroids, comets, and moons and such. I respect the knowledge base here and I would like to know if he is full of it or not? What say you?

Doesn't it have a rotational spin of one rotation every 24 earth hrs so that we only see one side ever?

It does rotate. Once every 29 days. One rotation for every orbit of the earth. Which is not considered slow when compared to Venus which spins once in something like 250 days.

The moon does rotate. The moons rotational period is locked in phase with its orbital period.

The simple fact that its rotational speed is perfectly in phase with its orbit should be enough evidence to at least suggest something isn't natural causing this

I think I read that some other moons do the same sort of stuff as our moon. But they could all be deathstar type space-ships. I certainly think the Earths moon is.

While not classified as a moon, the planet Mercury's rotation is also synchronized to always show the same face to the sun. So the physics is not unique. I believe that it is called "tidal locked".

Re: Is earths moon the only orbiting moon in our solar system with out a rotational spin?
It's called 'tidal locking'
A process that occurs to all orbiting astronomical bodies.
Yes, many moons in our solar system are known to be locked to their parent planet. In fact, all the planets which have moons, have tidally locked moons.
In the case of Pluto, and it's moon 'Charon', not only is Charon tidally locked to Pluto, but Pluto is also tidally locked to Charon.
Also, in other planetary systems, it's common for planets to be tidally locked to their stars - and one star (Tau Bootis) is known to be tidally locked to a close-orbiting large planet.

Given enough time, Earth would eventually 'lock' to the Moon - a situation where our days would be MUCH longer, and the Moon would always appear stationary in the sky.
There isn't time for it to come about though - it would take much longer than the remaining life of our Sun.

Hey GLP'ers,
One astronomer friend of mine has told me that our moon has to be artificial and under power to resist rotation. In his opinion all celestial objects in our solar system have rotation like planets, asteroids, comets, and moons and such. I respect the knowledge base here and I would like to know if he is full of it or not? What say you?
 Quoting: Starlighttraveller


According to Russian astrophysicist Dr. Iosif Samuilovich Shklovsky, Phobos also is artificial and regularly self-corrects its speed and orbit.

Earth's Moon also has the ideal dimensions and is conveniently placed in an orbit to allow perfect eclipses as seen from here.

 Quoting: UndercoverAlien

The Moon is slowly moving away from Earth (part of the tidal locking process), so it won't always be so.
In fact, when eclipses occur at, or near, aphelion, the Moon is not big enough to cover all the Sun.

Not 'convenient' at all.
Because it's moving away - then there is gonna be a time when the sizes are similar - We are just lucky to be living in that time-frame.
In the past it wasn't so - in the future it won't be so.

What about Deimos? It is also tidally locked.
What about Europa, Ganymede, Callisto, Io, Almathea, Thebe, Titan, Rhea, Mimas, Iapetus, Enceladus, Dione, Janus, Prometheus, Pan, Tethys, Miranda, Oberon, Titania, Ariel, Umbriel, Triton, Charon and Pluto...???
All are tidally locked - and many more also, I don't remember ALL the names.....
Are they all also artificial?

It's a natural process - happens throughout the solar system...
To claim that 'some' of them are artificial is paranoid delusion.

exactly and if the rotation did not fit one orbit of earth it would not be a satellite of earth, it would eventually end up in the asteroid belt like the other lost moons.
