Why do we always see one side of the moon?
I have been told it’s because the moon just happens to rotate and orbit the earth so that we always see the one side. However, I find it hard to believe that the moon has kept this coincidental motion for as long as it’s been there. I would think it would eventually shift so that we see different parts but that’s obviously not the case. So how does it work the we always have and always will supposedly see the same side of the moon from the earth?
