Facts About The Moon

When Neil Armstrong took that historical step of "one small step for man one giant step for mankind" it would not have occurred to anyone that the step he took in the dust of the moon was there to stay. It will be there for at least 10 million years.

In a survey conducted in 1988, 13% of those surveyed believed that the moon is made of cheese.

The moon rotates at 10 miles per hour compared to the earth's rotation of 1000 miles per hour.

The moon is not a planet, but a satellite of the Earth.

# The moon is about 1/4 the size of the Earth.

# On the moon, there is no wind or water.

# From Earth, we always see the same side of the moon; the other side is always hidden.

# The dark spots we see on the moon that create the image of the man in the moon are actually craters filled with basalt, which is a very dense material.
