  • 5. http://www.scientificpsychic.com Animation of lunar formation
  • 6.
    • Material on the moon is like our crust and mantle. Very little iron is there.
    • No atmosphere on the moon due to high energy impact.
    • Same oxygen atoms are on the earth and moon that are different from ones found in comets and meteoriods!
    Collision Theory Evidence !
  • 7. Comparisons: 1/4 our diameter 1/6 our gravity About 240,000 miles away
  • 8. Lunar far side looks very different from the side of the moon we always see!
  • 9. NASA's Apollo missions Goal was to put men on the moon to explore and conduct scientific experiments. Neil Armstrong was the first person to walk on the moon. He did so on July 20, 1969. Video clip of Apollo Missions
