Asked in The Moon
Why does the moon have so many craters formed by meteoroids?
The moon has no atmosphere therefore meteoroids do not burnt or fragment, prior to hitting the moons surface. On Earth meteor craters quickly become disguised as weather erosion and foliage camouflage the site of impact. The lack of atmosphere on the moon means that once the impact crater has been made the evidence of it never disappears over time. Recently the use of powerful telescopes has shown that the tracks of the lunar lander and even the footprints of astronauts from the 1970's are still visible on the moons surface.

What is the moons gravitational pull compared to earth?
the moons gravitational pull is about 1/10 that of earth. that is why astronauts weigh so little on it. > Standing the same distance from each, with the same mass, the force due to gravity of earth is approx 81 times that of the moon, which incidentally, is also the mass of the earth compared to the moon. > The comparison of gravity on the surface of each: 1 kg mass on the earths surface = 1 kg force / weight 1 kg mass on the moons surface = 1/6 kg force / weight
