Star Gazing!

March 20, 2015

During Science Week, Kingsway Community trust, as part of their celebrations, were lucky enough to have some of their questions answered by Buzz Aldrin – the second man who stepped on the moon! Buzz, who is now 85, was visiting Jodrell Bank observatory as part of the ‘Stargazing Live’ programme which was shown on BBC2.

 

Our best questions were personally handed to him (via an astronomer we know who works at Jodrell Bank) and Buzz very kindly answered  them for us!

 

 

Cringle Brook children asked "If the moon was made of cheese – which cheese do you think it would be?"

 

Buzz laughed and replied "Well...perhaps a smoky one, as there was a charcoal – like odour on the moon. In terms of surface, the moon was like talcum powder, but it left a very firm boot print. The dents, which appear ‘cheese – like’, are craters, caused by rocks hitting the moon over time."
