Imagine that you're walking on the moon.
What is it like?
For thousands of years people looked up at the moon and wondered about it. Now we know what the moon is like. There is no air on the moon and nothing grows, but there are towering mountains and deep craters--and much more!
Colder than the desert, the hotter than the desert, the moon is an amazing place to explore.
