You know that dark side of the moon is pretty ******* bright.

There is no 'dark side of the moon' - it rotates, as we do, so we see different sides of the moon all the time.

The moon does not rotate, the same side is always facing the earth, because it's center of mass is in a different spot from its geometric center. I don't know the exact science behind it, but I read about it in HS physics.

It's a long time since i've had HS physics, but still it does rotates - just slower than we do (some 25-ish days in one rotation - the same time it takes to orbit the earth ) - Tidal looking, if i remember correctly.

But still the term "dark side of the moon" is just plain wrong - it is often fully illuminated by the sun or by light hitting earth and then hitting the moon. (don't know what to call a 'day moon', but i'm sure we've all seen it)

The dark side should really be called the far side, the side we never see.

The moon does rotate, but it rotates at the same speed at which it revolves, so we always see the same side.

Actually, yes it does. We see the same side because the moon rotates and exactly the same rate as earth due to us orbiting it and it orbiting us.

actually, the moon does rotate. It rotates at the same speed as it revolves around earth so that we see the same side all of the time.

There you go, now I don't have to bother typing out an explanation. You did it for me.
