Does the Moon rotate on its axis?

rotation of the moon is locked to present the same face always to the earth (By G. Rieke)

The time for the Moon to go around the Earth is exactly equal to the time it takes the Moon to rotate on its axis. This “locking” of periods between revolution (going around the parent body) and rotation is common throughout the Solar System.
