What temperature is on the Moon?
Taking the Moon’s Temperature
Daytime temperatures near the lunar equator reach a boiling 250 degrees Fahrenheit (120° C, 400 K), while nighttime temperatures get to a chilly -208 degrees Fahrenheit (-130° C, 140 K). The Moon’s poles are even colder.
Will the Earth crash into the sun?
By that point, all life on Earth will be extinct. Finally, the most probable fate of the planet is absorption by the Sun in about 7.5 billion years, after the star has entered the red giant phase and expanded beyond the planet’s current orbit.
Does it rain on moon?
The moon has a very thin atmosphere so it cannot trap heat or insulate the surface. There is no wind there, no clouds, no rain, no snow and no storms, but there is “day and night” and there are extreme differences in temperatures depending on where the sun is shining.
Is the flag still in the moon?
Images taken by a Nasa spacecraft show that the American flags planted in the Moon’s soil by Apollo astronauts are mostly still standing. The photos from Lunar Reconaissance Orbiter (LRO) show the flags are still casting shadows – except the one planted during the Apollo 11 mission.
What planet rains diamonds?
Deep within Neptune and Uranus, it rains diamonds—or so astronomers and physicists have suspected for nearly 40 years. The outer planets of our Solar System are hard to study, however. Only a single space mission, Voyager 2, has flown by to reveal some of their secrets, so diamond rain has remained only a hypothesis.
Is there sound on the Moon?
However, the Moon is in space, and space is mostly a vacuum (there are always some atoms floating around, but they are VERY far apart and don’t interact with one another). Thus there is no sound on the Moon.
Who owns the Moon?
The short answer is that no one owns the Moon. That’s because of a piece of international law. The Outer Space Treaty of 1967, put forward by the United Nations, says that space belongs to no one country.
Can you float away from the Moon? Although you can jump very high on the moon, you’ll be happy to know that there’s no need to worry about jumping all the way off into space. In fact, you’d need to be going very fast – more than 2 kilometres per second – to escape from the moon’s surface.
Can we live without the Moon?
If the Moon were to one day simply disappear, there would be some disastrous consequences that would have an irreversible effect upon life on Earth.
What would happen if the Sun disappeared for 5 seconds?
What was Earth like before the moon?
Before Earth and the Moon, there were proto-Earth and Theia (a roughly Mars-sized planet). The giant-impact model suggests that at some point in Earth’s very early history, these two bodies collided.
What if the Sun was blue?
Can a telescope see the flag on the Moon?
How long would humans survive without the sun? With no sunlight, photosynthesis would stop, but that would only kill some of the plants—there are some larger trees that can survive for decades without it. Within a few days, however, the temperatures would begin to drop, and any humans left on the planet’s surface would die soon after.
Will the sun disappear in 2027? An annular solar eclipse will occur on Saturday, February 6, 2027. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth.

What if the sun was a black hole? Our Sun is too small a star to end its life as a black hole. But what would happen if the Sun were suddenly replaced with a black hole of the same mass? Contrary to popular belief, the Solar System would not be sucked in: a solar-mass black hole would exert no more gravitational pull than our Sun.
What if the Moon was made of cheese?
A cheese Moon wouldn’t pull on the oceans as strongly and so the Earth’s rotation wouldn’t have been slowed as much. Consequently the Moon wouldn’t have receded from us as much either. Sitting closer to us, it would appear bigger in the sky and still deprive us from a perfect solar eclipse.
Would you eat the moon if it was made of ribs?
What if the moon was made of gold?
Under the Gold Moon, the highest tides would be 7.5 times that of the old moon alone. In other words, tides would be 5 times as strong as the strongest ones we have now, and would stay pretty much the same through the whole month. Every coastal region of Earth would experience strong daily flooding.
What if the moon exploded?
If the moon exploded, the night sky would change. We would see more stars in the sky, but we would also see more meteors and experience more meteorites. The position of the Earth in space would change and temperatures and seasons would dramatically alter, and our ocean tides would be much weaker.
How many years does the Earth have left?
The upshot: Earth has at least 1.5 billion years left to support life, the researchers report this month in Geophysical Research Letters. If humans last that long, Earth would be generally uncomfortable for them, but livable in some areas just below the polar regions, Wolf suggests.
How many years do we have to save the planet?
The answer is to reduce our carbon footprint, reducing our greenhouse gas emissions dramatically. Many climate experts say we have nine years left, until 2030, before we begin to hit a tipping point from which there may be no return.
What year will the sun explode?
Astronomers estimate that the sun has about 7 billion to 8 billion years left before it sputters out and dies. One way or another, humanity may well be long gone by then.
Can plants grow on the Moon? The answer to the first question is a resounding yes. Plants can grow in lunar regolith. They are not as robust as plants grown in Earth soil. Or even as those in the control group grown in a lunar simulant made from volcanic ash.
