Why do we see only one side of the moon always?

Answer :

The moon moves around the earth in about 27 days. It takes exactly the same time to complete one spin. That is, the Moon rotates on its axis at the same rate that the Moon orbits the Earth. As a result, only one side of the moon is visible to us on the earth.
