Q- Do all moons in our solar system rotate nearly equal to its orbital rate around there respective planet as to ONLY see on side of the moon?
Tidal locking is the process by which two bodies in an orbital relationship will, over time, come to show the same face to one another. In other words, the period of rotation about the axis of the body will come to match the body's orbital period.
It's the only moon we know of that has a "locked" orbit, meaning that one side is always facing it's parent planet.
It is also the largest moon we know of in comparison to it's parent planet.
It is also the exact size and distance to allow for perfect solar eclipses which is a really spectacular coincidence.
At least some parts of the moon are older than the earth.
this is strange but possibly explained by the moon being formed by another object colliding with the Earth. I believe this is the commonly accepted theory, although it is not without its problems.
There are also reports of the astronauts encountering a very hard layer a few feet under the lunar surface. A layer that was different from the rocky surface and impenetrable to the drills being used.
...the moon is 400 times less massive then our sun ...
The reasons for not returning to the moon (as far as us sheeple know) have hardly been discussed and most astronauts who've walked up there are in general quite convinced there is more out there then just us.
It's the only moon that's face-locked with it's planet...
...actually the only other body that's locked to another is Mercury to the sun..
NASA, whom John Lear claim is the biggest gas giant in the solar system
The dark side of the Moon has it been landed upon?
There could be life underground on the moon (why not) if the lifeforms on the moon couldnt leave the moon they may have createda more pleasant experience/habitat beneath the surface?
We only know what we are told, the moon could already have a base via biospheres like they have on the Earth.
The ISS may be just a launchhing pad for materials going to the base.
