Why does the Moon not rotate around its own axis?

Question: Why does the Moon not rotate around its own axis?

Answer: The Moon does rotate on its own axis. It does this once every 29-1/2 days -- the same time it takes for it to complete its journey around Earth. The Moon rotates at about ten miles per hour at its equator.
