The Far Side of the Moon

The far side of the Moon is the side that we cannot see from Earth. Because the rotation of the Moon is locked in synchronism as it revolves around Earth, its near side always faces Earth. If people lived on the Moon, those who lived on the near side would always see Earth and those who lived on the far side would never see it.
