Name and etymology

The proper English name for Earth's natural satellite is, simply, the Moon (capitalized).[11][12] Moon is a Germanic word, related to the Latin mensis and Ancient Greek μήνας (mēnas) both meaning month, and Μήνη (Mēnē) (alternate name for Selēnē in Ancient Greek).[13][14] It is ultimately a derivative of the Proto-Indo-European root me-, also represented in measure[15] (time), with reminders of its importance in measuring time in words derived from it like Monday, month and menstrual. The related adjective is lunar, as well as an adjectival prefix seleno- and suffix -selene (from selēnē, σελήνη, the Ancient Greek word for the Moon). In English, the word moon exclusively meant "the Moon" until 1665, when it was extended to refer to the recently discovered natural satellites of other planets.[15] Subsequently, these objects were given distinct names to avoid confusion.[12] The Moon is occasionally referred to by its Latin name Luna, primarily in science fiction.

The Moon used to rotate at a faster rate, but early in its history, its rotation slowed and became locked in this orientation as a result of frictional effects associated with tidal deformations caused by the Earth.[16] .The side of the Moon that faces Earth is called the near side, and the opposite side the far side.^ Walk to the far right along that side then turn to face the crate that blocks the way.

The topography of the Moon has been measured by the methods of laser altimetry and stereo image analysis, most recently from data obtained during the Clementine mission. The most visible topographic feature is the giant far side South Pole-Aitken basin, which possesses the lowest elevations of the Moon. The highest elevations are found just to the north-east of this basin, and it has been suggested that this area might represent thick ejecta deposits that were emplaced during an oblique South Pole-Aitken basin impact event. .Other large impact basins, such as Imbrium, Serenitatis, Crisium, Smythii, and Orientale, also possess regionally low elevations and elevated rims.^ Quickly run to the other side of the elevator shaft and look down toward the feeding containers and find the Large Med Pack then grapple it with kinesis and collect it!
  • GameFAQs: Dead Space (PS3) FAQ/Walkthrough by Berserker 11 January 2010 3:03 UTC www.gamefaqs.com [Source type: General]

Another distinguishing feature of the Moon's shape is that the elevations are on average about 1.9 km higher on the far side than the near side.[1]

Maria

The dark and relatively featureless lunar plains which can clearly be seen with the naked eye are called maria (singular mare), Latin for seas, since they were believed by ancient astronomers to be filled with water. These are now known to be vast solidified pools of ancient basaltic lava. The majority of these lavas erupted or flowed into the depressions associated with impact basins that formed by the collisions of meteors and comets with the lunar surface. (Oceanus Procellarum is a major exception in that it does not correspond to a known impact basin.) .Maria are found almost exclusively on the near side of the Moon, with the far side having only a few scattered patches covering about 2% of its surface,[20] compared with about 31% on the near side.^ This FAQ can only be found on a few sites as of now and I am keeping a list of those sites.

These peaks of eternal light are possible because of the Moon's extremely small axial tilt to the ecliptic plane. No similar regions of eternal light were found at the south pole, although the rim of Shackleton crater is illuminated for about 80% of the lunar day. Other consequences of the Moon's small axial tilt are regions that remain in permanent shadow at the bottoms of many polar craters.[26]

[29] Prominent impact basins on the near side include Imbrium, Serenitatis, Crisium, and Nectaris.

Regolith

Blanketed on top of the Moon's crust is a highly comminuted (broken into ever smaller particles) and "impact gardened" surface layer called regolith. Since the regolith forms by impact processes, the regolith of older surfaces is generally thicker than for younger surfaces. In particular, it has been estimated that the regolith varies in thickness from about 3–5 m in the maria, and by about 10–20 m in the highlands.[30] Beneath the finely comminuted regolith layer is what is generally referred to as the megaregolith. This layer is many kilometres thicker and comprises highly fractured bedrock.[31]

However, the current obliquity of the Moon means that the Sun never rises above 1.85° at the poles, and the axial tilt of the Moon has remained at its present orientation for the past two billion years, allowing the craters at the poles to remain in permanent shadow for that length of time.[33] .Water molecules that ended up in these craters could be stable for long periods of time.^ I) I never saw it coming no (oh) how could you do it (oh I) I never saw it coming no (oh) how could you do it (oh I) I never saw it coming and (no oh) I need an ending So why can't you stay Just long enough to explain You can take your time, take my time.
  • New Moon Soundtrack — New Moon Movie 28 January 2010 0:30 UTC www.newmoonmovie.org [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

Before that point, the Moon had much larger values for its obliquity, possibly reaching angles as high as 77° for periods of several hundred thousand years.[34]
Clementine has mapped craters at the lunar south pole[35] that are shadowed in this way, and computer simulations suggest that up to 14,000 km² might be in permanent shadow.[26] Results from the Clementine mission bistatic radar experiment are consistent with small, frozen pockets of water close to the surface, and data from the Lunar Prospector neutron spectrometer indicate that anomalously high concentrations of hydrogen are present in the upper metre of the regolith near the polar regions.[36] Estimate for the quantity of water on the Moon is 32 ounces per short ton (1 kg/Mg) of the top layer of Moon's surface.

However, recent observations made with the Arecibo planetary radar suggest that some of the near-polar Clementine radar data that were previously interpreted as indicating water ice might instead be a result of rocks ejected from young impact craters.[37] In July 2008, small amounts of water were found in the interior of volcanic pearls from the Moon (brought to Earth in 1971 by the Apollo 15 astronauts).[38][39]
On September 24, 2009, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) reported that their first lunar mission, Chandrayaan-1 using NASA's Moon Mineralogy Mapper, found evidence of large quantities of water on the Moon's surface, and that water is still presently being formed.[40][41] .The instrument observed an absorption line in the spectrum of sunlight reflected from the Moon, indicating that light of a particular wavelength (around 2.8 micrometres) is being absorbed more readily than other nearby wavelengths.^ When fighting more than one, use the Line Gun or Plasma Cutter.

The position and shape of the line indicate the absorption is due to water. A nearby line also revealed the presence of the closely-related molecule hydroxyl. The exact abundance of water was not determined, but the team believed it could be as high as 1,000 parts per million in the top layer of Lunar soil. On November 13, 2009, NASA announced the results of the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite, saying that "not just water, but lots of water" had been found by the mission near the southern pole.[42]

Physical characteristics

Internal structure

A circle divided into four rings and a centre. The outermost line is 'anorthositic crust'. The outer two rings, the upper and middle mantle, are equal in thickness, and occupy two-thirds of the circle's area. Going inwards, the lower mantle is '~587 km radius, zone of partial melt'; the fluid outer core is '~350 km radius', and these rings are each half as thick as each of the mantle rings. The solid inner core is '~160 km radius, assuming 10% of the core has crystallized'.
The Moon is a differentiated body, being composed of a geochemically distinct crust, mantle, and core. This structure is hypothesized to have resulted from the fractional crystallization of a magma ocean shortly after its formation, at about 4.4 billion years ago[43]. The energy required to melt the outer portion of the Moon is commonly attributed to a giant impact event that is postulated to have formed the Earth-Moon system, and the subsequent reaccretion of material in Earth orbit. Crystallization of this magma ocean would have created a mafic mantle and a plagioclase-rich crust (see Origin and geologic evolution below).
Geochemical mapping from orbit implies that the crust of the Moon is largely anorthositic in composition,[5] consistent with the magma ocean hypothesis. In terms of elements, the crust is composed primarily of oxygen (41% to 46% by mass), silicon (21%), magnesium (6%), iron (13%), calcium (8%), and aluminium (7%).[44][45] Based on geophysical techniques, its thickness is estimated to be on average about 50 km.[1]
Partial melting within the mantle of the Moon caused the eruption of mare basalts on the lunar surface. .Analyses of these basalts indicate that the mantle is composed predominantly of the minerals olivine, orthopyroxene and clinopyroxene, and that the lunar mantle is more iron rich than that of the Earth.^ These small enemies are actually infant necromorphs but they are really more annoying than Slashers.

Some lunar basalts contain high abundances of titanium (present in the mineral ilmenite), suggesting that the mantle is highly heterogeneous in composition. Moonquakes have been found to occur deep within the mantle of the Moon about a thousand kilometres below the surface. These occur with monthly periodicities and are related to tidal stresses caused by the eccentric orbit of the Moon about the Earth.[1]
The Moon has a mean density of 3 346.4 kg/m³, making it the second densest moon in the Solar System after Io. Nevertheless, several lines of evidence imply that the core of the Moon is small, with a radius of about 350 km or less.[1] This corresponds to only about 20% the size of the Moon, in contrast to about 50% as is the case for most other terrestrial bodies. The composition of the lunar core is not well constrained, but most believe that it is composed of metallic iron alloyed with a small amount of sulfur and nickel. Analyses of the Moon's time-variable rotation indicate that the core is at least partly molten.[46]

Gravity field

The gravitational field of the Moon has been determined through tracking of radio signals emitted by orbiting spacecraft. The principle used depends on the Doppler effect, whereby the spacecraft acceleration in the line-of-sight direction can be determined by means of small shifts in frequency of the radio signal, and the distance from the spacecraft to a station on Earth. However, because of the Moon's synchronous rotation it is not possible to track spacecraft much over the limbs of the Moon, and the farside gravity field is thus only poorly characterised.[47]
The major characteristic of the Moon's gravitational field is the presence of mascons, which are large positive gravitational anomalies associated with some of the giant impact basins.[48] These anomalies greatly influence the orbit of spacecraft about the Moon, and an accurate gravitational model is necessary in the planning of both manned and unmanned missions. The mascons are in part due to the presence of dense mare basaltic lava flows that fill some of the impact basins. However, lava flows by themselves cannot explain the entirety of the gravitational signature, and uplift of the crust-mantle interface is required as well. Based on Lunar Prospector gravitational models, it has been suggested that some mascons exist that do not show evidence for mare basaltic volcanism.[49] The huge expanse of mare basaltic volcanism associated with Oceanus Procellarum does not possess a positive gravitational anomaly.

Magnetic field

.The Moon has an external magnetic field of the order of one to a hundred nanoteslas—less than one-hundredth that of the Earth, which is 30–60 microteslas.^ Out of over three dozen Planet Cracks, only one operation has met with less than optimal results.

.Other major differences are that the Moon does not currently have a dipolar magnetic field (as would be generated by a geodynamo in its core), and the magnetizations that are present are almost entirely crustal in origin.^ That's why it would go good with the movie, and yes, other than the 2000 year old part which you have to point out constantly, it does go with new moon.

[50] One hypothesis holds that the crustal magnetizations were acquired early in lunar history when a geodynamo was still operating. The small size of the lunar core, however, is a potential obstacle to this theory. Alternatively, it is possible that on an airless body such as the Moon, transient magnetic fields could be generated during large impact events. In support of this, it has been noted that the largest crustal magnetizations appear to be located near the antipodes of the giant impact basins. .It has been proposed that such a phenomenon could result from the free expansion of an impact generated plasma cloud around the Moon in the presence of an ambient magnetic field.^ As it turns out, the field generated by the Marker creates a "dead space" around itself that forces the recombination effect into dormancy.

Atmosphere

The Moon has an atmosphere so thin as to be almost negligible, with a total atmospheric mass of less than 104 kg.[52] The effective surface pressure of this small mass is around 3 × 10−15 atm (0.3 nPa).[53] This pressure varies with the diurnal moon cycle. One source of its atmosphere is outgassing—the release of gases such as radon that originate by radioactive decay processes within the crust and mantle.[54] Another important source is generated through the process of sputtering, which involves the bombardment of micrometeorites, solar wind ions, electrons, and sunlight.[5] .Gases that are released by sputtering can either reimplant into the regolith as a result of the Moon's gravity, or can be lost to space either by solar radiation pressure or by being swept away by the solar wind magnetic field if they are ionised.^ Isaac will step out into space and enter a vacuum area with zero gravity.

The elements sodium (Na) and potassium (K) have been detected using earth-based spectroscopic methods, whereas the element radon-222 (222Rn) and polonium-210 (210Po) have been inferred from data obtained from the Lunar Prospector alpha particle spectrometer.[55] Argon-40 (40Ar), helium-4 (4He), oxygen (O2) and/or methane (CH4), nitrogen (N2) and/or carbon monoxide (CO), and carbon dioxide (CO2) were detected by in-situ detectors placed by the Apollo astronauts.[56]

Surface temperature

During the lunar day, the surface temperature averages 107 °C, and during the lunar night, it averages −153 °C.[57]
The Moon has the coldest place in the Solar System measured by a spacecraft.
NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has used its Diviner instrument to probe the insides of permanently shadowed craters on Earth's satellite.[58] It found mid-winter, night-time surface temperatures inside the coldest craters in the northern polar region can dip as low as minus 249 °C (26 kelvins). The Diviner instrument observed the lowest summer temperatures in the darkest craters at the southern pole to be about 35 K (−238 °C); but in the north, close to the winter solstice the instrument recorded a temperature of just 26 K on the south-western edge of the floor of Hermite Crater.

Origin and geologic evolution

Formation

Several mechanisms have been suggested for the Moon's formation. .The formation of the Moon is hypothesized to have occurred 4.527 ± 0.010 billion years ago, about 30–50 million years after the origin of the Solar System.^ I was listening to the song about a week ago and i said to my daughter and sister that the song would be great for Bella in New Moon.

[59]
Fission hypothesis 
Early speculation proposed that the Moon broke off from the Earth's crust because of centrifugal forces, leaving a basin—presumed to be the Pacific Ocean—behind as a scar.[60] .This idea, however, would require too great an initial spin of the Earth and would have resulted in the Moon's orbit following Earth's equatorial plane rather than its current path.^ I just heard a new song by Kate Miller-Heidke - Last Day on Earth, I think this song would be great in new moon......

[61]
Capture hypothesis 
Other speculation has centered on the Moon being formed elsewhere and subsequently being captured by Earth's gravity.[62] However, the conditions conjectured necessary for such a mechanism to work, such as an extended atmosphere of the Earth to dissipate the energy of the passing Moon, are improbable.[61]
Co-formation hypothesis 
The co-formation hypothesis proposes that the Earth and the Moon formed together at the same time and place from the primordial accretion disk. The Moon would have formed from material surrounding the proto-Earth, similar to the formation of the planets around the Sun. .Some suggest that this hypothesis fails to adequately explain the depletion of metallic iron in the Moon.^ I hope that the creator of the soundtrack would read some of the fans suggestion because we mean well for our beloved new moon.

[61]
A major deficiency in all these hypotheses is that they cannot readily account for the high angular momentum of the Earth–Moon system.[63]
Giant impact hypothesis
The prevailing hypothesis today is that the Earth–Moon system formed as a result of a giant impact. .A Mars-sized body (labelled "Theia") is hypothesized to have hit the proto-Earth, blasting sufficient material into orbit around the proto-Earth to form the Moon through accretion.^ It's best to hit them with stasis and shoot off a leg then take out the Force Gun and blast the many Crawlers that a Divider splits into when it separates.

[6] As accretion is the process by which all planetary bodies are theorized to have formed, giant impacts are thought to have affected most if not all planets. Computer simulations modelling a giant impact are consistent with measurements of the angular momentum of the Earth–Moon system, as well as the small size of the lunar core.[64] .Unresolved questions regarding this theory concern the determination of the relative sizes of the proto-Earth and Theia and of how much material from these two bodies formed the Moon.^ These things will stay down here and make Dark Slashers out of the two bodies if you allow them to.

Lunar magma ocean

As a result of the large amount of energy converted during both the giant impact event and the subsequent reaccretion of material in Earth orbit, it is commonly hypothesized that a large portion of the Moon was once initially molten. .The molten outer portion of the Moon at this time is referred to as a magma ocean, and estimates for its depth range from about 500 km to the entire radius of the Moon.^ Ailish yeh i absolutely agree, Lots of times when i think about new moon this songs pops into my head.
  • New Moon Soundtrack — New Moon Movie 28 January 2010 0:30 UTC www.newmoonmovie.org [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

[21]
As the magma ocean cooled, it fractionally crystallised and differentiated, creating a geochemically distinct crust and mantle. The mantle is inferred to have formed largely by the precipitation and sinking of the minerals olivine, clinopyroxene, and orthopyroxene. After about three-quarters of magma ocean crystallisation was complete, the mineral anorthite is inferred to have precipitated and floated to the surface because of its low density, forming the crust.[21]
The final liquids to crystallise from the magma ocean would have been initially sandwiched between the crust and mantle, and would have contained a high abundance of incompatible and heat-producing elements. This geochemical component is referred to by the acronym KREEP, for potassium (K), rare earth elements (REE), and phosphorus (P), and appears to be concentrated within the Procellarum KREEP Terrane, which is a small geologic province that encompasses most of Oceanus Procellarum and Mare Imbrium on the near side of the Moon.[1]

Geologic evolution

A large portion of the Moon's post–magma-ocean geologic (or, more properly, "selenologic") evolution was dominated by impact cratering. The lunar geologic timescale is largely divided in time based on prominent basin-forming impact events, such as Nectaris, Imbrium, and Orientale. These impact structures are characterised by multiple rings of uplifted material, and are typically hundreds to thousands of kilometres in diameter. Each multi-ring basin is associated with a broad apron of ejecta deposits that forms a regional stratigraphic horizon. .While only a few multi-ring basins have been definitively dated, they are useful for assigning relative ages on stratigraphic grounds.^ Ripper - I'd only recommend using this when the Ripper is at full power, but it really can do some damage to these enemies if you aim for the legs then continue to saw away at their remaining appendages while they are grounded.

The continuous effects of impact cratering are responsible for forming the regolith.
The other major geologic process that affected the Moon's surface was mare volcanism. The enhancement of heat-producing elements within the Procellarum KREEP Terrane is thought to have caused the underlying mantle to heat up, and eventually, to partially melt. A portion of these magmas rose to the surface and erupted, accounting for the high concentration of mare basalts on the near side of the Moon.[21] Most of the Moon's mare basalts erupted during the Imbrian period in this geologic province 3.0–3.5 billion years ago. Nevertheless, some dated samples are as old as 4.2 billion years,[66] and the youngest eruptions, based on the method of crater counting, are hypothesized to have occurred only 1.2 billion years ago.[67]
There has been controversy over whether features on the Moon's surface undergo changes over time. .Some observers have claimed that craters either appeared or disappeared, or that other forms of transient phenomena had occurred.^ Some of the wilder reports claim this causes planets to smash into each other.

Nevertheless, it is known that the phenomenon of outgassing does occasionally occur, and these events could be responsible for a minor percentage of the reported lunar transient phenomena. Recently, it has been suggested that a roughly 3 km diameter region of the lunar surface was modified by a gas release event about a million years ago.[68][69]

The lunar highlands rocks are composed of three suites: the ferroan anorthosite suite, the magnesian suite, and the alkali suite (some consider the alkali suite to be a subset of the mg-suite). The ferroan anorthosite suite rocks are composed almost exclusively of the mineral anorthite (a calic plagioclase feldspar), and are hypothesized to represent plagioclase flotation cumulates of the lunar magma ocean. The ferroan anorthosites have been dated using radiometric methods to have formed about 4.4 billion years ago.[66][67]
The mg- and alkali-suite rocks are predominantly mafic plutonic rocks. Typical rocks are dunites, troctolites, gabbros, alkali anorthosites, and more rarely, granite. In contrast to the ferroan anorthosite suite, these rocks all have relatively high Mg/Fe ratios in their mafic minerals. .These rocks generally represent intrusions into the already-formed highlands crust (though a few rare samples appear to represent extrusive lavas), and they have been dated to have formed about 4.4–3.9 billion years ago.^ I recommend using the Pulse Rifle or Plasma Cutter for the first few Slashers that appear on her side then switch over to the Force Gun as they appear on your side.

The gravitational attraction of the Sun on the Earth's oceans is almost half that of the Moon, and this interplay is responsible for spring and neap tides.
Gravitational coupling between the Moon and the bulge nearest the Moon affects its orbit. From the Moon's perspective, the center of mass of the near-Moon tidal bulge is perpetually slightly ahead of the point about which it is orbiting. In the same way, the bulge farthest from the Moon lags behind, but as it is 12,756 km farther away, it has slightly less gravitational coupling to the Moon. This gravitational asymmetry of forces attracts the Moon forward in its orbit. This gravitational coupling acts like a torque on the Earth's rotation, and drains angular momentum and rotational kinetic energy from the Earth's spin. In turn, angular momentum is added to the Moon's orbit, accelerating it, which lifts the Moon into a higher orbit with a longer period. .As a result, the distance between the Earth and Moon is increasing, and the Earth's spin slowing down.^ Shoot the Slashers from a distance and cut off a leg to wound them before they get too close in order to slow them down.

Measurements from lunar ranging experiments with laser reflectors left during the Apollo missions have showed that, at present, the Moon's distance to the Earth increases by 38 mm per year[74] (though this is only 0.10 ppb/year of the radius of the Moon's orbit). Cumulatively, this effect becomes ever more significant over time. .Atomic clocks also show that the Earth's day lengthens by about 15 microseconds every year,[75] requiring the occasional addition of a leap second to the calendar.^ Start looking for the ball when the timer reaches about 10 or 15 seconds.

This tidal drag will continue until the spin of the Earth has slowed to match the orbital period of the Moon, at which time the tidal effect of the Sun will dominate, further slowing the Earth and thereafter causing the orbit of the Moon to steadily shrink. .However, long before this could happen, the sun will have become a red giant.^ Before long, the crew becomes stranded aboard the USG Ishimura.

Libration also changes the angle from which the Moon is seen, allowing about 59% of its surface to be seen from the Earth (but only half at any instant).[6] .The magnitude of the Moon's tides corresponds to a Love number of 0.0266, and supports the idea of a partially melted zone around its core.^ Sarah I love the idea of that song for New Moon Team Switzerland I also think All Around Me by Flyleaf would be a really good song for New Moon as well.

.As the Moon is continuously blocking our view of a half-degree-wide circular area of the sky, the related phenomenon of occultation occurs when a bright star or planet passes behind the Moon and is occulted: hidden from view.^ Some of the radioactive balls are hidden behind the circular metal pieces.
  • GameFAQs: Dead Space (PS3) FAQ/Walkthrough by Berserker 11 January 2010 3:03 UTC www.gamefaqs.com [Source type: General]

In this way, a solar eclipse is an occultation of the Sun. Because the Moon is comparatively close to the Earth, occultations of individual stars are not visible everywhere on the planet, nor at the same time. Due to the precession of the lunar orbit, each year different stars are occulted.[81]

Observation

.During its brightest phase, at "full Moon", the Moon has an apparent magnitude of about −12.7. By comparison, the Sun has an apparent magnitude of −26.7.

This is followed by Gibbous, Last Quarter and Crescent to complete full circle at the New Moon again.
On average, the Moon covers an area of 0.21078 square degrees on the night sky.[82] The Moon does appear larger when close to the horizon, but this is a purely psychological effect: the Moon illusion.
The Moon appears as a relatively bright object in the sky, in spite of its low albedo. The Moon is about the poorest reflector in the solar system and reflects only about 7% of the light incident upon it (about the same proportion as is reflected by a lump of coal). However, the Moon is not a Lambertian scatterer and reflects more light back towards the Sun (albedo of 13.6%[3]) than in other directions because of the spherical glass beads in the moondust. This increases the brightness of a full Moon.[83] It also has the effect of making the edges of a full Moon seem about as bright as the centre. Besides this, color constancy in the visual system recalibrates the relations between the colours of an object and its surroundings, and since the surrounding sky is comparatively dark the sunlit Moon is perceived as a bright object.
The highest altitude of the Moon on a day varies and has nearly the same limits as the Sun. It also depends on the Earth season and lunar phase, with the full Moon being highest in winter. Moreover, the 18.6 year nodes cycle also has an influence, as when the ascending node of the lunar orbit is in the vernal equinox, the lunar declination can go as far as 28° each month (which happened most recently in 2006). .This results that the Moon can go overhead on latitudes up to 28 degrees from the equator (e.g.^ Give up you're not going anywhere Moon light Illuminates your stare And it's great, Captivating you Does that trouble you?

The orientation of the Moon's crescent also depends on the latitude of the observation site. Close to the equator, an observer can see a boat Moon.[84]

First direct exploration: 1959-1980s

The Cold War-inspired space race between the Soviet Union and the U.S. led to an acceleration of interest in the Moon. Unmanned probes, both flyby and impact/lander missions, were sent once allowed by launcher capabilities. The Soviet Union's Luna program was the first to reach the Moon with unmanned spacecraft. .The first man-made object to escape Earth's gravity and pass near the Moon was Luna 1, the first man-made object to impact the lunar surface was Luna 2, and the first photographs of the normally occluded far side of the Moon were made by Luna 3, all in 1959. The first spacecraft to perform a successful lunar soft landing was Luna 9 and the first unmanned vehicle to orbit the Moon was Luna 10, both in 1966.[6] Rock samples were brought back to Earth by three Luna missions (Luna 16, 20, and 24) and the Apollo missions 11 to 17 (except Apollo 13, which aborted its planned lunar landing).^ First of all, three Tentacles will appear along the bridge tracks that extend toward the far side up ahead.

Current era: 1990-present

Post-Apollo and Luna, many more countries have become involved in direct exploration of the Moon.
In 1990, Japan orbited the Moon with the Hiten spacecraft, becoming the third country to place a spacecraft into lunar orbit. The spacecraft released a smaller probe, Hagormo, in lunar orbit, but the transmitter failed, preventing further scientific use of the mission.
In 1994, the U.S. sent the joint Defense Department/NASA spacecraft Clementine to lunar orbit. This mission obtained the first near-global topographic map of the Moon, and the first global multispectral images of the lunar surface. This was followed by the Lunar Prospector mission in 1998. The neutron spectrometer on Lunar Prospector indicated the presence of excess hydrogen at the lunar poles, which is likely to have been caused by the presence of water ice in the upper few meters of the regolith within permanently shadowed craters. On January 14, 2004, U.S. President George W. Bush called for a plan to resume manned missions to the Moon by 2020 (see Vision for Space Exploration).[89] NASA is now planning for the construction of a permanent outpost at one of the lunar poles.[90]
.The European spacecraft Smart 1 was launched September 27, 2003 and was in lunar orbit from November 15, 2004 to September 3, 2006. China has expressed ambitious plans for exploring the Moon and has started the Chang'e program for lunar exploration, successfully launching its first spacecraft, Chang'e-1, on October 24, 2007. On September 14, 2007 the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency launched SELENE, also known as Kaguya, a lunar orbiter fitted with a high-definition camera and two small satellites.^ It will perform two ground smashes in a row, so run to one side and wait for the first smash to miss then quickly change direction and run to the other side.

[91] On October 22, 2008 India launched the Chandrayaan I (a Sanskrit word meaning 'Moon-craft') lunar orbiter. The country plans to launch Chandrayaan II in 2010 or 2011, which is slated to include a robotic lunar rover, and has also expressed its hope for a manned mission to the Moon by 2020.[92] The U.S. co-launched the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) on June 18, 2009.
Russia also announced intentions to resume its previously frozen project Luna-Glob, consisting of an unmanned lander and orbiter, which is slated to land in 2012.[93] The Google Lunar X Prize, announced September 13, 2007, hopes to boost and encourage privately funded lunar exploration. The X Prize Foundation is offering anyone US$20 million who can land a robotic rover on the Moon and meet other specified criteria.[citation needed]

Map of the Moon by Johannes Hevelius from his Selenographia (1647)
The Moon has been the subject of many works of art and literature and the inspiration for countless others. It is a motif in the visual arts, the performing arts, poetry, prose and music. .A 5000-year-old rock carving at Knowth, Ireland may represent the Moon, which would be the earliest depiction discovered.^ That's why it would go good with the movie, and yes, other than the 2000 year old part which you have to point out constantly, it does go with new moon.

In Mesopotamia, Babylonian astronomers by the early first millenium BC had discovered a repeating 18-year cycle of lunar eclipses. They had also known by this time that 19 solar years is about equal to 235 lunar months. In the 2nd century BC, Seleucus of Seleucia correctly theorized that tides were caused by the Moon, although he believed that the interaction was mediated by the Earth's atmosphere. According to Strabo (1.1.9), Seleucus was the first to state that the tides are due to the attraction of the Moon, and that the height of the tides depends on the Moon's position relative to the Sun.[95]
Among the first in the Western world to offer a scientific explanation for the Moon was the Greek philosopher Anaxagoras (d. 428 BC), who reasoned that the Sun and Moon were both giant spherical rocks, and that the latter reflected the light of the former. His atheistic view of the heavens was one cause for his imprisonment and eventual exile.[96] In Aristotle's (384–322 BC) description of the universe, the Moon marked the boundary between the spheres of the mutable elements (earth, water, air and fire), and the imperishable stars of aether. This separation was held to be part of Aristotelian physics for many centuries after.[97] Aristarchus went a step further and computed the distance from Earth, together with its size, obtaining a value of 20 times the Earth radius for the distance (the real value is 60; the Earth radius was roughly known since Eratosthenes).
During the Warring States of China, astronomer Shi Shen (fl. 4th century BC) gave instructions for predicting solar and lunar eclipses based on the relative positions of the Moon and Sun.[98] Although the Chinese of the Han Dynasty (202 BC–202 AD) believed the Moon to be energy equated to qi, their 'radiating influence' theory recognized that the light of the Moon was merely a reflection of the Sun (mentioned by Anaxagoras above).[99] This was supported by mainstream thinkers such as Jing Fang (78–37 BC) and Zhang Heng (78–139 AD), but it was also opposed by the influential philosopher Wang Chong (27–97 AD).[99] Jing Fang noted the sphericity of the Moon, while Zhang Heng accurately described a lunar eclipse and solar eclipse.[99][100] These assertions were supported by Shen Kuo (1031–1095) of the Song Dynasty (960–1279) who created an allegory equating the waxing and waning of the Moon to a round ball of reflective silver that, when doused with white powder and viewed from the side, would appear to be a crescent.[101] He also noted that the reason for the Sun and Moon not eclipsing every time their paths met was because of a small obliquity in their orbital paths.[101]
Between 825 and 835 AD, the Persian astronomer, Habash al-Hasib al-Marwazi, conducted various observations at the Al-Shammisiyyah observatory in Baghdad.[102] .Using these observations, he estimated the Moon's diameter as 3,037 km (equivalent to 1,519 km radius) and its distance from the Earth as 215,209 miles, which come close to the currently accepted values.^ These upgrade benches will allow Isaac to upgrade his current gear through the use of Power Nodes.

[103] In 1021, the Islamic physicist, Alhazen, accurately explained the Moon illusion in the Book of Optics, which stated that judging the distance of an object depends on there being an uninterrupted sequence of intervening bodies between the object and the observer. .With the Moon, there are no intervening objects, therefore since the size of an object depends on its observed distance, which is in this case inaccurate, the Moon appears larger on the horizon.^ There is no clear safe place to stand since vents are near all corners.

Through Alhazen's work, the Moon illusion gradually came to be accepted as a psychological phenomenon.[104] He also investigated moonlight, which he proved through experimentation that it originates from sunlight and correctly concluded that it "emits light from those portions of its surface which the sun's light strikes."[105]
.By the Middle Ages, before the invention of the telescope, an increasing number of people began to recognise the Moon as a sphere, though many believed that it was "perfectly smooth".[106] In 1609, Galileo Galilei drew one of the first telescopic drawings of the Moon in his book Sidereus Nuncius and noted that it was not smooth but had mountains and craters.^ Before you can dispose of the green radioactive circular objects, Isaac must first open the door in the middle of the room.

Later in the 17th century, Giovanni Battista Riccioli and Francesco Maria Grimaldi drew a map of the Moon and gave many craters the names they still have today.

[107] Almost at the same time however (during 1834–1836), Wilhelm Beer and Johann Heinrich Mädler were publishing their four-volume Mappa Selenographica and the book Der Mond in 1837, which firmly established the conclusion that the Moon has no bodies of water nor any appreciable atmosphere.

Legal status

Although several pennants of the Soviet Union were scattered by Luna 2 in 1959 and by later landing missions, and U.S. flags have been symbolically planted on the Moon, no nation currently claims ownership of any part of the Moon's surface. Russia and the U.S. are party to the Outer Space Treaty, which places the Moon under the same jurisdiction as international waters (res communis). This treaty also restricts the use of the Moon to peaceful purposes, explicitly banning military installations and weapons of mass destruction.[108]
A second treaty, the Moon Treaty, was proposed to restrict the exploitation of the Moon's resources by any single nation, but it has not been signed by any of the space-faring nations. .Several individuals have made claims to the Moon in whole or in part, although none of these are generally considered credible.^ And you might even consider Heartbreaker by will.i.am although it might be too 'cheerful' for New Moon movie and Thinking of You by Katy Perry.

Notes

  1. ^ The maximum value is given based on scaling of the brightness from the value of −12.74 given for an equator to Moon-centre distance of 378 000 km in the NASA factsheet reference to the minimum Earth-Moon distance given there, after the latter is corrected for the Earth's equatorial radius of 6 378 km, giving 350 600 km. The minimum value (for a distant new Moon) is based on a similar scaling using the maximum Earth-Moon distance of 407 000 km (given in the factsheet) and by calculating the brightness of the earthshine onto such a new Moon. The brightness of the earthshine is [ Earth albedo × (Earth radius / Radius of Moon's orbit)² ] relative to the direct solar illumination that occurs for a full Moon. (Earth albedo = 0.367; Earth radius = (polar radius × equatorial radius)½ = 6 367 km).
  2. ^ The range of angular size values given are based on simple scaling of the following values given in the fact sheet reference: at an Earth-equator to Moon-centre distance of 378 000 km, the angular size is 1896 arcseconds. The same fact sheet gives extreme Earth-Moon distances of 407 000 km and 357 000 km. For the maximum angular size, the minimum distance has to be corrected for the Earth's equatorial radius of 6 378 km, giving 350 600 km.
  3. ^ Lucey et al. (2006) give 107 particles cm−3 by day and 105 particles cm−3 by night. Along with equatorial surface temperatures of 390 K by day and 100 K by night, the ideal gas law yields the pressures given in the infobox (rounded to the nearest order of magnitude; 10−7 Pa by day and 10−10 Pa by night.
  4. ^ a b More accurately, the Moon's mean sidereal period (fixed star to fixed star) is 27.321661 days (27d 07h 43m 11.5s), and its mean tropical orbital period (from equinox to equinox) is 27.321582 days (27d 07h 43m 04.7s) (Explanatory Supplement to the Astronomical Ephemeris, 1961, at p.107).
  5. ^ a b More accurately, the Moon's mean synodic period (between mean solar conjunctions) is 29.530589 days (29d 12h 44m 02.9s) (Explanatory Supplement to the Astronomical Ephemeris, 1961, at p.107).

The Moon
The Moon (Luna) is the Earth's solitary satellite, roughly 385,000 kilometers away.

Get in

The Moon has had no visitors since the end of the Apollo program in 1972. America's NASA, the European Space Agency and the Chinese space program all have apparently serious plans to return, but none are in a hurry: NASA's target date for the next man on the moon is 2018, while both the ESA and the Chinese are aiming at 2024.

The range of temperature must be vastly wider than on the earth, owing to the absence of an atmosphere to make it equable. Elaborate observations of the heat coming from the moon at its various phases were made and discussed in1871-1872by Lord Rosse. .Among his results was that during the progressive phases from before the first quarter till the full moon the heat received increases in a much greater proportion than the light, from which it followed that the former was composed mainly of heat radiated from the moon itself in consequence of the temperature which it assumed under the sun's rays.^ To reach the Moon astronauts would have to travel through the Van Allen Radiation Belts, resulting in lethal doses of radiation.

But it seems probable that this disproportion may be somewhat too great. Rosse's determinations, like those of his predecessors, were made with the thermopile. .After S. P. Langley devised his bolometer, which was a much more sensitive instrument than the thermopile, he, in conjunction with F. W. Very, applied it to determine the moon's radiation at the Allegheny observatory.^ For more than one hour, the moon continued to reverberate like a bell.

He therefore wrongly concluded that the highest temperature reached by the moon approximated to the freezingpoint of water. .Stefan's law of radiation, on the other hand, shows that the temperature must have been about the boilingpoint in order that the observed amount of heat might be radiated.^ This means that if the 1.27"/cy equinox correction is absolutely correct, the proper motion of the FK5 system must have an additional rotation of about -0.30"/cy whereas as we observe only -0.1"/cy.

Under these circumstances the historical treatment is that best adopted to give a clear idea of the progress and results of research in this field. Modern researches were developed so naturally from the results of the ancients that we shall begin with a brief mention of the work of the latter.
It is in the investigation of the moon's motion that the, merits of the ancient astronomy are seen to the best advantage. In the hands of Hipparchus the theory was brought to a degree of precision which is really marvellous when we compare it either with other branches of physical science in that age or with the views of contemporary non-scientific writers. The discoveries of Hipparchus were :- I. The Eccentricity of the Moon's Orbit. - .He found that the moon moved most rapidly near a certain point of its orbit, and most slowly near the opposite point.^ The craft used its ion engine to slowly raise its orbit over 14 months until the moon's gravity came to bear.

2. The Numerical Determination of the Elements of the Moon's Motion. - In order that the two capital discoveries just mentioned should have the highest scientific value, it was essential that the numerical values of the elements involved in these complicated motions should be fixed with precision. This Hipparchus was enabled to do by lunar eclipses. Each eclipse gave a moment at which the longitude of the moon was 180° different from that of the sun. The latter admitted of ready calculation. .Assuming the mean motion of the moon to be known and the perigee to be fixed, three eclipses, observed in different points of the orbit, would give as many true longitudes of the moon, which longitudes could be employed to determine three unknown quantities - the mean longitude at a given epoch, the eccentricity, and the position of the perigee.^ It is also interesting that many of the moon mission photos that were given to the public as authentic have problems with "lighting" and the shadows don't fall correctly.

It was thus found by Ptolemy that an additional inequality existed in the motion, which is now known as the evection. The relations of the quantities involved may be shown by simple trigonometric formulae. .If we put g for the moon's anomaly or distance from the perigee, and D for its elongation from the sun, the inequalities in question as now known are 6.29° sin g (equation of centre) +1.27° sin (2D-g) (evection).^ Now all that we see, the sun, the moon, the stars, the ocean, the earth, the flowers, and above all, man, are a grand mirror in which the perfection of God is imperfectly reflected.

During a lunar eclipse we always have D =180°, very nearly, and 2D=360°. Hence the evection is then - 1.2° sin g, and consequently has the same argument g as the equation of centre, so that it is confounded with it. .The value of the equation of centre derived from eclipses is thus 6.29° sin g - I. 27 ° sin g =5.02° sin g. Therefore the eccentricity found by Hipparchus was only 5°, and was more than a degree less than its true value.^ I do not know of any sin more binding than the sin of intemperance; the man is bound hand and foot before he knows it.

At first quarter we have D =90° and 2D =180°. Substituting this value of 2D in the last term of the above equation, we see that the combined. equation of the centre and evection are, at quadrature 6.29° sin g+I 27° sin g= 7.56° sin g.
.Thus, in consequence of the evection, the equation of the centre comes out 2° 30' larger from observations at the moon's quarters than during eclipses.^ When we were coming about 30 or 40 feet out, there were a lot of objects - white things - flying by.

The next forward step was due to Tycho Brahe. .He found that, although the two inequalities found by Hipparchus and Ptolemy correctly represented the moon's longitude near conjunction and opposition, and also at the quadratures, it left a large outstanding error at the octants, that is when the moon was 45° or 135° on either side of the sun.^ Russian bases on the Near side of the Moon: 1.

Although Tycho Brahe was an original discoverer of this inequality, through whom it became known, Joseph Bertrand of Paris claimed the discovery for Abu 'l-Wefa, an Arabian astronomer, and made it appear that the latter really detected inequalities in the moon's motion which we now know to have been the variation.^ There are some persons now, you know, who adore a Queen of Heaven, whom they picture with the moon beneath her feet.

But he has not shown, on the part of the Arabian, any such exact description of the inequality as is necessary to make clear his claim to the discovery. .We may conclude the ancient history of the lunar theory by saying that the only real progress from Hipparchus to Newton consisted in the more exact determination of the mean motions of the moon, its perigee and its line of nodes, and in the discovery of three inequalities, the representation of which required geometrical constructions increasing in complexity with every step.^ Set on a dying Moon colony long after Earth has become ancient history.

2. By the second general method the moon's co-ordinates are obtained in terms of the time by the direct integration of the differential equations of motion, retaining as algebraic symbols the values of the various elements. .Most of the elements are small numerical fractions: e, the eccentricity of the moon's orbit, about 0.055; e', the eccentricity of the earth's orbit, about o 017: y, the sine of half the inclination of the moon's orbit, about 0.046; m, the ratio of the mean motions of the moon and earth, about 0.075.

This method was applied with success by Pontecoulant and Sir John W. Lubbock, and afterwards by Delaunay. By these methods the series converge so slowly, and the final expressions for the moon's longitude are so long and complicated, that the series has never been carried far enough to ensure the accuracy of all the terms. This is especially the case with the development in powers of m, the convergence of which has often been questioned.
3. The third method seeks to avoid the difficulty by using the numerical values of the elements instead of their algebraic symbols. This method has the advantage of leading to a more rapid and certain determination of the numerical quantities required. .It has the disadvantage of giving the solution of the problem only for a particular case, and of being inapplicable in researches in which the general equations of dynamics have to be applied.^ Moving the research to Aegis VII is only aggravating the problem.

John Couch Adams afterwards determined the motion of the node in a similar way. The numerical computations were worked out by Hill only for the first approximation. .The subject was then taken up by Brown, who in a series of researches published in the Memoirs of the Royal Astronomical Society and in the Transactions of the American Mathematical Society extended Hill's method so as to form a practically complete solution of the entire problem.^ When France was in danger of collapsing in 1956, it was the Americans who propped it up, and their reward was to be insulted and swindled on the streets of Paris.

But Edmund Halley found, by a comparison of ancient eclipses with modern observations, that the mean motion had been accelerated. This was confirmed by Richard Dunthorne (1711-1775). .Corresponding to this observed fact was the inference that the action of the planets might in some way influence the moon's motion.^ NO WAY!

Thus a new branch of the lunar theory was suggested - the determination by theory of the effect of planetary action.
.The first step in constructing this theory was taken by Laplace, who showed that the secular acceleration was produced by the secular diminution of the earth's orbit.^ A trial run of the equipment this summer produced the sharpest image of the Moon taken from the Earth, showing details 400ft across from a distance of 238,000 miles.
  • THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON 3 February 2010 18:51 UTC www.greatdreams.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

He computed the amount as about 10" per century, which agreed with the results derived by Dunthorne from ancient eclipses. Laplace's immediate successors, among whom were Hansen, Plana and Pontecoulant, found a larger value, Hansen increasing it to 12.5", which he introduced into his tables. .This value was found by himself and Airy to represent fairly well several ancient eclipses of the sun, notably the supposed one of Thales.^ Kyle found himself back in good favor, picked to interface with the alien representatives sent to Earth.

This diminution was soon fully confirmed by others, especially Delaunay, although for some time Pontecoulant stoutly maintained the correctness of the older result. But the demonstration of Adam's result was soon made 1 Philosophical Transactions, 1853.
conclusive, and a value which may be regarded as definitive has been derived by Brown. With the latest accepted diminution of the eccentricity, the coefficient is 5.91".
The question now arose of the origin of the discrepancy between the smaller values by theory, and the supposed values of 12" derived from ancient eclipses. .In 1856 William Ferrel showed that the action of the moon on the ocean tidal waves would result in a retardation of the earth's rotation, a result, at first unnoticed, which was independently reached a few years later by Delaunay.^ Short story where the first landing on the Moon triggers an ancient automatic defence system that destroys the Earth.

The amount of retardation does not admit of accurate computation, owing to the uncertainty both as to the amount of the oceanic friction from which it arises and of the exact height and form of the tidal wave, the action of the moon on which produces the effect. .But any rough estimate that can be made shows that it might well be supposed much larger than is necessary to produce the observed differences of 6" per century.^ You might as well go forward and preach that "you can swear as much as you like, and murder as much as you please, and it will come out right--that God will forgive you; God is so merciful."

.It was therefore surprising when, in 1877, Simon Newcomb found, by a study of the lunar eclipses handed down by Ptolemy and those observed by the Arabians - data much more reliable than the vague accounts of ancient solar eclipses - that the actual apparent acceleration was only about 8.3". This is only 2.4" larger than the theoretical value, and it seems difficult to suppose that the effect of the tidal retardation can be as small as this.^ This FAQ can only be found on a few sites as of now and I am keeping a list of those sites.

But the former do not correspond to the observed inequalities, and the explanation of the outstanding differences may be regarded to-day as the most perplexing enigma in astronomy. .The most plausible explanation is that, like the discrepancy in the secular acceleration, the observed deviation is only apparent, and arises from slow fluctuations in the earth's rotation, and therefore in our measure of time produced by the motion of great masses of polar ice and the variability of the amount of snowfall on the great continents.^ The client itself is not the most stabe thing and I get errors of all kinds and have to restart more times than I would like too.

Were this the case a similar inequality should be found in the observed times of the transits of Mercury. But the latter do not certainly show any deviation in the measure of time, and seem to preclude a deviation so large as that derived from observations of the moon. This suggests that inequalities in the action of the planets may have been still overlooked, the subject being the most intricate with which celestial mechanics has to deal. .But this action has been recently worked up with such completeness of detail by Radau, Newcomb and Brown, that the possibility of any unknown term seems out of the question.^ Yes, we need to look up--out, beyond this low earth, and to build higher in our thoughts and actions, even here!

The great brilliance of the moon in Eastern countries led to its being early an object of idolatrous worship (Deut 4:19; 17:3; Job 31:26), a form of idolatry against which the Jews were warned (Deut 4:19; 17:3). .They, however, fell into this idolatry, and offered incense (2Kg 23:5; Jer 8:2), and also cakes of honey, to the moon (Jer 7:18; 44:17-19, 25).^ Even the Hebrews, when they saw "the moon walking in brightness," along the clear skies of Palestine, impressed by its beauty, fell into the same idolatry.

The Moon as seen from Earth. This a nearly full moon

The Moon (Latin: Luna) is what people generally say when talking about Earth's moon. The moon can be seen from Earth. The moon is actually very large, about a quarter the size of the earth, but because it is far away it looks very small. The gravity on the moon is one-sixth of the Earth's gravity. It means that you will be 6 times lighter on the moon than on Earth. The moon is a rocky and dusty place.

Phases

The Moon is lit up by the sun as it goes around (Orbits) the Earth. This means sometimes we can see the whole moon and other times only bits of it. This is because the moon gives out no light. We can only see the parts that are reflecting light from the Sun. These different stages are called Lunar Phases. It takes the Moon about 29.53 days (29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes) to complete the cycle, from big and bright to small and dim and back to big and bright. As the moon passes between the Earth and Sun, this phase is called the New Moon. The next phase of the moon is called the waxing crescent, followed by the first quarter, waxing gibbous, then to a full moon. A full moon occurs when the moon is opposite the Earth, the farthest away from the sun. As the moon continues its orbit it becomes a waning gibbous, third quarter, waning crescent, and finally back to a new moon. People used the moon to measure time and present day months are approximately equal in time to a lunar cycle.

The phases of the Moon

Because the moon is tidally locked (always faces the same way) towards Earth there is a half of the moon we can never see. This is called the dark side of the moon even though the sun does shine on it.

History of exploring the Moon

File:Aldrin Apollo
Buzz Aldrin standing on the moon in 1969

The moon has fascinated people since there were people to see it. People often dreamed of standing on the moon and looking at Earth.

Before people stood on the Moon, some of the big countries in the world, the United States and Russia (which used to be part of the USSR) sent robots to the moon. These robots would fly around, crawl, or in the case of Luna 2, crash into the moon. The robots were the first things that humans made that touched the Moon.

Humans finally landed on the Moon on 21 July, 1969.[3] Astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, landed their lunar module (the Eagle) on the surface of the moon. Then, as half the world watched him on television, Armstrong climbed down the ladder of the Eagle and was the first to touch the Moon as he said, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Later, Buzz Aldrin hops out of the Eagle, and together, they put the American flag near the spot where they landed. Even though their footprints were left on the moon a long time ago, it is likely that they are still there. If you leave footprints on Earth, wind will blow the dirt around, filling in the footprints and making them disappear. Rain could also smooth out the dirt. But on the moon there is no wind or rain. Because of that, the footprints do not get filled in or smoothed out.

Some people say they have never actually been to the moon. They say that the pictures of men on the moon have all been faked, and that the samples of moon dust and moon rocks are not really from the moon. There are many arguments to show that these people are wrong, though.

More people landed on the moon between 1969 and 1972, when the last spaceship, Apollo 17 visited. Eugene Cernan of Apollo 17 was the last person to touch the moon since 2008.

Characteristics

Because it's smaller in size, the Moon has less gravity than Earth (only 1/6 of the amount on Earth). So if you weigh 60 pounds on earth, you would only weigh 10 pounds on the moon. But even though the moon's gravity is weaker than the earth's gravity, it is still there. If you threw a ball in the air, it would still fall back down. However, it would fall much more slowly. And if you jumped up as high as you could on the moon, you would still fall back to the ground. You could jump and do lots of tricks in the air and not hurt yourself at all, even if you did not land on your feet. That's because the moon's gravity wouldn't pull as hard as the earth's gravity does.

As was said before, the moon has no rain or wind, so footprints would never wear away naturally.

The Moon also has no atmosphere. Without an atmosphere, you wouldn't be protected from heat or cold. Because of this, astronauts have to wear very heavy spacesuits to protect themselves and to carry oxygen to breathe. Of course, since the moon does not have a lot of gravity, the spacesuit wouldn't be as heavy as it would be on Earth.

In the Earth, the sky is blue because the blue rays of the sun bounce off the gases in the atmosphere, making it look like blue light is coming from the sky. But on the moon, because there is no atmosphere, the sky looks black, even in the daytime. And because there is no atmosphere to protect the moon from the rocks that fall from outer space, they crash right into the moon and make big dents called craters. The moon has thousands of these craters.

Water on the Moon

On November 13, 2009, NASA said that they had found a lot of water on the moon.[4]
