Near the turn of the 20th century, Scientific American had so many letters to the editor arguing about whether or not the moon "rotates" that they actually started a periodical devoted entirely to that question, at least one issue of which was published.That the moon rotates, and that we see only one side of it, is not a contradiction--you simply have to look at the situation from from above the Earth-Moon plane.
Granted, it's in rough shape. But with the right improvements, I think you'd you be very happy there. So, what do you folks think? Do I write it up?
