How precise is the moon's synchronous rotation? Is there any variance, even to
the smallest degree?
Over the period of millions or billions of years, should the syncronization of
rotation and revolution differ by the slightest amount, we (mankind) would
eventually see rotational views of the moon. This would eventually expose all
of the moon's surface to the earth.
