Yes. Everything follows the laws of physics. Of which gravity is one.
Which leads to tidal forces.
Which leads to tidal locking.
Which leads to the rate of rotation matching the orbital period.

Everything is "made" so perfect in the universe. :-)



In this one yes...the other universes not so much! lol

Don’t forget Lunar Libration

Not to be confused, with “lunar libations”, which you can use for moon-toasts.


slightly more than half (about 59%) of the Moon's surface is seen from Earth due to libration.[1]
Libration is manifested as a slow rocking back and forth of the Moon as viewed from Earth, permitting an observer to see slightly different halves of the surface at different times.

The answer is...because it's a hologram and not really there and the people in charge of this fake satellite make it not rotate just to keep us in awe.

Best thread ever

It takes 28 days for the moon to make a full rotation of itself. It takes 28 days for it to rotate around the Earth. Its orbital mechanics are more like a swiss watch than a solar system body created by an accidental giant impact.

Coincidence?

Well yes it is our trailer so to speak.

I don't like your video. The Earth is not rotating. It should be. This makes the video look faked. Please find me a video like this with the rotation of the earth so we can get a better idea whats happening. A video that shows the Moon earth relationship relative from different angles and the Moon's orbital plane in relation to Earth axis.

Gravity Bah Humbug. This is an Electrical Universe. Food for thought.

Objection Your Honer. The witness is speculating. The witness may claim that the local part of the universe he is familiar with as far as he knows only appears to follow the laws of physics in absoluteness ( except of course for some things in quantum mechanics that scientists are still scratching their head about) but the witness cannot have been everywhere throughout time, space and other dimensions to fully prove his untested theory. Therefore his assertion of "Everything" cannot apply.

I'll get right on that, can I get you anything else while I'm at it? How about a cold drink and an appetizer while you wait?

You would have a good point......if the Moon had been formed yesterday. However, the "giant impact" was over four billion years ago, which means that the Moon's rotation and orbital period have had plenty of time to synchronise.

on a long enough time-line, all solar bodies will eventually become tidally locked.

The earth is slowing its rotation because of the tidal effect of the moon, and eventually, the earth and moon will always have the same sides facing eachother...

The earth is just so much more massive than the moon, that the moon stopped first.

Give it a few hundred million years, and you can expect one earth day to last one lunar cycle.... if the moon is still there, that is.

That would be lovely, why thank you.

I was just making the point that the video doesn't do the science justice at all without that more detailed illustration of exactly how everything works in sync. It's like telling someone how a motor works and leaving out the part where the pistons go up and down.

It does rotate. It just takes 24 hours to do it so we always see the same face.

Actually, it takes 28 days.


It's actually about 29.5, but many say 28 due to that being equal to 4 weeks. It's the synodic period.

It's actually 27.3 days. The Moon's synodic period (the time it takes to complete one phase cycle) is a bit longer because the Earth is, itself, orbiting around the thing that causes those phases.

Seriously if you cant see it from that GIVE UP you can see how the phases of the Moon work if you look at that video.

Well that there are Alien bases on the far side of the moon for one...

evidence for this assertion ?

I would imagine the moon rotates the way it does is because the mass is not uniform throughout, it would be my guess that enough of the mass is on the side that face earth to keep it pointing toward us as it rotates (to cause the moon to spin) earths gravity keeps it locked facing us so that as it moves around us it slowly rotates.

That would be my layman's guess.
