Abstract

The Moon is always with the same face toward the Earth. However, the prevailing theory to explain this phenomenon, there is a dead angle. That is why the Moon does not rotate around the axis which is a straight line between the Earth and Moon to connect to their mass centers. Because many of meteorite impact craters on the lunar surface indicate that the Moon is entirely possible to obtain momentums to rotate around the axis. In this paper, we propose a plain explanation which is the universal gravitation between the Earth and Moon as well as the Earth's magnetic field to have formed a trinity binding mechanism about the Moon to be locked. According to this explanation, the Moon can be locked, the mechanism of lunar libration has been revealed out, which can confirm mutually with the natural phenomenon that the Moon has sought a balance in the swing. In addition, with all kinds of detection data from the Apollo moon landings and other circumlunar spacecraft to detect, as well as the studies of lunar soil samples, the conclusion is that as a whole for the Moon, which belongs to the paramagnetic substance, its relative permeability is between 1.008 and 1.03. Although due to the impact of the solar wind, the Earth's magnetic flux density in the lunar orbit has been dropped below 0.000065 nT, but can not become a reason to assert that present-day Moon has no global dipole magnetic field. Unless it can be confirmed that a constant magnetic field does not exist in the lunar orbit.
