WATCH THIS SPACE: The Bot and the Astronaut and the Moon
Bot, the Astronaut and the Moon
Hi and welcome, this is the first of our information bubble videos in the ‘Watch this space’ series. Follow Bot and the Astronaut as they discover about art, science and nature through a multiverse of bubbles.
To start the series off we thought we would celebrate the Total Solar Eclipse that will be happening in the USA on the 21st of August. So our first bubble is about the Moon. We are looking forward to making more information bubbles and sharing them with you . We hope you like the video and we want to say thanks for supporting and we hope that you continue to…..Watch This Space!
Naming Craters on the Moon
As we mention in the video, lunar craters are formed by asteroids and comets that collided with the moon and there are roughly 300,000 craters on the moon’s near side. Craters are named after Artists, Scientists, Scholars and explorers.
The Sea’s on the Moon
The lunar maria are the large, darker plains that are visible from earth. They were formed by ancient volcanic eruptions. They were called Maria by early astronomers who mistook them for actual seas, Maria is the Latin word for “seas”.
How much do you weigh on the Moon?
Ever wonder about how much you might weigh on the moon? well, luckily we found a link that can help you.
Your weight on the Moon has to be calculated by the of the Moon’s gravity. We know that gravity is a force that attracts all physical objects towards each other. So because the earth and the Moon has a different mass, your weight will be different on the Moon. You can calculate your weight on the moon here on the moon connection website.
