The science of the moon

The moon has been back on the agenda for months while NASA attempts to put its Artemis mission into action.

It marks the start of a new program to send humans back to the Moon in a few years time – even setting the first woman and first person of colour onto surface.

NASA even want to establish a permanent colony on our lunar neighbour.

But the Moon is more than just a science destination, and it’s occupied the minds of humans for our entire history as species.

It’s inspired research into the origins of our lunar neighbour, it’s also inspired some loony superstitions.

In this episode of Huh? Science Explained, Matthew Agius explores the fact and fiction of the Moon.
