Dark Side of the Moon

The Moon doesn’t have a dark side. But, the Pink Floyd album is great.

Congratulations to the Chinese for landing a probe on the far side of the moon.

I accept that “dark side” is used to mean the “originally unseen by human eyes” but it still bothers me.

To those that do not know this already – you should really look at the moon once in a while – the rotation of Moon is tide-locked with Earth and, though libration causes it to change a little back and forth, the same side is always pointing towards us.

Also, the moon is upside-down when you travel to a different hemisphere.
