It rotates, it's just that its rotational period happens to match its orbital period.


I wonder how many moons in our Solar System keep one side permanently hidden from their host planet?

What is the name of our Moon?

More than 30.

Officially the proper name is “Moon”; Moon (with a capital “M” is a proper noun. Unofficially, some call it Luna.

And it’s Lunar, not Luna.

There's at least one other:


An extreme example is the case of Pluto and Charon. Charon is such a large satellite compared to Pluto that they are tidally locked together. This means that Pluto only sees one face of Charon and vice versa. It is as if a rod connects two points on their surface.

Thank-you for the info on Pluto-Charon. That puts another conspiracy theory to bed!

When I was a kid, "Made in China" meant that the product was cheap and inferior. Things certainly have changed!

They might get a man on Mars before we do. Maybe we could combine technologies/talents to get there faster?

Plutarians?

It’s Luna. Lunar is used as in Lunar surface.
And why is nobody speaking of the giant golden city in the foreground!! My grandma had a huge satellite dish like that too.

This reminds me, I'm going to Greenland in the summer. I guess I should watch out for Chinese astronauts.
I love cgi and how it gets better every year!


Is it cgi because they've gone better than the Americans?

Ummm...because if I did that, the picture comes out smaller, as seen below. I thought by posting the enlarged picture vertically, it would save people the extra step in zooming it in their Paint program. Sorry if you found the posted picture so troubling SMH.


Fantastic image

...for anyone who doesn't know, just right click on it then open it in a new browser page/window...I drooled as well!
Cheers for posting it OP.

In case you hadn't seen this one yet, here's a full 360-degree version of the panorama: www.360cities.net...

Go full-screen and, bam! you're on the Moon.

Can someone explain to me why we aren't making temporary base on the moon to train Astronauts prior to going to Mars?
The moon would be a great place to test structural material and equipment before landing on another planet.

This is a really nice photo and captures a lot of detail however I was expecting the far side to consist entirely of cheese.
I'd like to see what China's space program does next.



Probably because we cannot get past the VAN ALLEN BELT and stay alive.

We also cannot survive in space for more than 6 months.

So we cant make the trip to mars.


Sources please?


You dont know about the Van Allen Belt?

Really?



originally posted by: FinallyAwake

Thanks for the arrogant sarcasm. Yes of course I know about the Van Allen belt. As far as I knew some astronauts had travelled through it. Also I DIDN'T ask for a single source did I??? I said SOURCES, that's plural. You don't know the difference between singular and plural? Really?
See how stupid and arrogant that sarcasm sounds??
Thanks

Can I ask why the crater is only indented with out an impact rim?

There were some rumors about the BRICS alliance mining Helium3 on the moon.


www.sciencealert.com...
But reporting by Bloomberg suggests that the Chinese government could have an ulterior motive: scoping out whether the Moon contains an isotope the nation could used to fuel interplanetary missions.

The fuel in question is helium-3, the non-radioactive isotope featured in the 2009 Duncan Jones film Moon. Lunar regolith may be rich in helium-3, which could theoretically be a compelling source of fusion energy - or even power next-generation fusion rockets.
