Moon question~

Post  TOvA~ on Wed Feb 02, 2011 7:05 pm

I know this has been explained to me at some point. But I don't 'get it' enough to remember I guess.
Why is it, that we only see one side of the Luna From Gaia?

The moon is what is called tidal locked which means that it's spin is the same as it's orbit and thereby keeps the same side facing the earth.
