If its supposedly tidal locked to the earth. Only showing us one side.

 

Surely the opposite is also true.

 

Why have we not seen this marvel in all its glory? Why dont we have a live stream of earth? Why is space exploration in the hands of such a few people? 

 

Why dont the n body problem concern more people?

The moon rotates in such a way that it appears to us observers that only one face is visible.

 

But viewing from the perspective of the moon, if you look at and think of this in '3D', the earth will still appear to rotate surely?

Because no one has put a webcam up there yet?
