One thought on “#151 – Ask Jeremiah Anything Scientific”

  1. I do love your programme which is so friendly and fun. Jeremiah got confused by language about the moon. ‘Tidal lock’ and ‘tides’ are not the same thing. Tides are caused by the gravitational pull of the moon. Water can react to that pull and move with the moon (within limits) as the earth rotates then fall back as that part of the earth rotates away from the moon. Tidal locking is when the orbit matches the rotation.
