I would go with the "the moon doesnt spin because it is a giant observational UFO that was placed here to keep watch on us simple human lifeform"
I know it is the most outlandish suggestion, but given the fact that we have seen little of the dark side of the moon and while coupled with the
conspiratorial nature of that subject, I think that it doesn spin because "they" dont want it to spin.
Just my 2 cents
Please... Dont tell me you are being serious.
If you are, may i please ask you why?
"The moon doesnt spin because Its majority mass is on one side, locking it with the earths gravity"
"What?! No! that doesnt make sense at all! Its gotta be Aliens! or the government! Or both!"
"Why?! I just told you wh-"
"Then why do you only see half of the moon ever?!"
"I just told you why! Because its in a locked gravity!"
"NO! I dont like that explanation, give me a new one!"
A moon is originally a small planet revolving around its sun in a spiral that becomes increasingly tight. The smaller planets spiral more rapidly than
the larger ones, because their inertial force is less.
Huh? In space there is nothing to stop Inertia...
Their spiral being faster, the smaller planets often catch up to the larger planets and, if they pass too closely, the gravitational attraction of the
planet will be stronger than that of the sun. The smaller planet begins to orbit the larger one, still in a spiral, which will sooner or later result
in a collision.
Where is your information and source on this?
Are you saying that our beautiful moon celebrated in poem and song, will one day fall on our heads?
One day, yes... but not for about 195 000 years.
Well it wont come closer unless earths gravity weakens.
Earths gravity wont weaken unless we reduce our overall mass too much.
like, maybe, building space shuttles and not bringing them back?
thats my understanding anyway.
