This question already has an answer here:
I understand that scientists believe the earth and the moon were spinning at the same speed as each other at the time they experienced acceleration (were formed). I also know that the reason given for why the moon no longer spins is that the earths gravitational attraction for the moon stole the energy after 3.5 billion years.
So why is the earth still spinning?
Given that the sun's attraction for the earth is 100 times stronger than the earths attraction for the moon.
