Today's Quote

"That's one small step for [a] man; one giant leap for mankind."

"It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small."

   ~ Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the Moon

Today's Facts

One day on the Moon is 27 days on the Earth.

The Moon causes most of the ocean tides because of the force of gravity between the Moon and the Earth.

The Moon is about four and a half billion years old, about the same age as the Earth.

The Moon is about 384,000 km from the Earth.

The surface of the Moon is about the same size as the continent of Africa.

Today's (bad) Joke

Did you hear about the great new restaurant on the moon? The food's excellent but there's no atmosphere.


After the Americans went to the Moon, the Soviets announced they would be sending a man to the Sun.

The engineers objected. 'If you send a man to the Sun, he will burn up'.

'What do you think we are, stupid?', they replied. 'We'll send him at night!'

That's all for today!
