in thread What would be the most significant thing to happen if a rope (or wire) tied the Earth and the Moon together?

Would s/erroneously/misleadingly/ be OK?

Btw in average its indeed darker, cause earth light (see earthshine) never gets there.

But with the wire we can finally realize electrical street lights and illuminated craters.

UPDATE

> That said, there's nothing wrong for non-astronauts referring to it as the far side of the moon instead.

They must be predominant on Wikipedia. See far side of the Moon
