5 Moon rotation
I conducted the face and orange experiment and discovered the moon does rotate. The moon orbits the Earth once every 27.322 days. It also takes approximately 27 days for the moon to rotate once on its axis. As a result, the moon does not seem to be spinning but appears to observers from Earth to be keeping almost perfectly still. Scientists call this sychronous rotation. The side of the moon that faces Earth is known as the near side. The opposite or "back" side is the far side. Sources

3 The Big Bang?
This article raised questions in me about the entire big bang theory. Based on Hubble's Law the galaxy is every changing and moving because of distance and there was collide cause a big bang. This is interpreted by astronomers to mean that the Big Bang and the creation of our universe occurred about 13.7 billion years ago.

4 Earth and other planets
It is interesting the information from 1959 (the photo of the moon) and the change in Pluto's status in 2006. The pictures of the planets or photographs have changed over the years. These changes are evident because of the lack of information gained from scientists. For example, there has been little or no photos about Pluto. Is this the reason for the dwarf status. I grew know the 9 planets. I think the robot vs human subject is important in the article. Although there is a need for robots it can never take the place of human intelligence.
