While we love every full Moon, there’s a special place in our hearts for the Harvest Moon, which is the full Moon closest to the fall equinox. Many cultures have holidays connected to this Moon, including the mid-Autumn festival in some East Asian countries and Chuseok in Korea!

All of the Apollo equipment was designed to handle extreme temperatures, so it wasn’t necessary to cool the rocks first. A thermometer deployed at the site showed the daytime temperature reached 160Β° F, dipping to 120Β° F in shadow.

Once technological advances allow the ability to use He-3 for nuclear fusion, with a net gain of energy, scientists and engineers may be able to mine He-3 on the Moon in an economically feasible way. Scientists estimated that there are over 1M metric tons of He-3 on the Moon.

It’s likely the ascent stage formed this type of crater, but at that time we didn’t have the surveillance to find it. And at this point, finding this small crater on the pockmarked Moon is like finding a needle in a haystack. (2/2)

In my 10 years at the Moon, I've taken continuous high-res imagery of the lunar surface, which has enabled me to detect over 500 new craters, the largest being ~70 meters in diameter. (1/2)

Traveling back in time to 2009. The Black Eyed Peas were rocking the charts. Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th U.S. President. And there was so much we still didn’t know about the Moon. Love hearing your memories of 2009!
