The pull of gravity keeps the Moon in orbit around Earth. The distance between the Earth and Moon is about 380,000 kilometers. A crew of astronauts leaves Earth on a Monday and lands on the Moon on a Thursday. They land on the side of the Moon facing away from the Earth. On what day would the astronauts be able to see Earth from the Moon? Explain.
The same side of the moon always faces the Earth.
