- The Moon’s Motivation: Luna is desperately trying to slow Earth’s rotation so that one Earth day eventually equals one Month.
- Earth has already tidally locked the Moon, which is why it shows only one face to Earth - the “near” side.

- And yup. Today, June 30, 2015, was also Asteroid Day: http://www.asteroidday.org
