25 Insane Facts About The Moon You Might Find Hard To Believe

There exist some pretty bizarre facts about the moon. For example, did you know that humans have left 96 bags of feces, vomit, and urine on the lunar surface? Gross, but true. On that note, did you know that Buzz Aldrin was the first man to pee on the moon? Or how about the fact that one day on the moon lasts 29.5 Earth days. Crazy right? And this is just the tip of the iceberg, check out the rest of these 25 insane facts about the moon you might find hard to believe.

These insane moon facts are out of this world:

One day on the moon lasts 29.5 Earth days

The mobile phone in your pocket has more computing power than the computers that first put men on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission

The reason that a total solar eclipse is so remarkable is that the moon appears to perfectly block the sun, that is, they appear to be exactly the same size in the sky

This is because the sun just so happens to be 400 times bigger than the moon and also 400 times farther

The moon is not perfectly spherical. It is actually shaped like an egg, but only ever so slightly. The larger end faces towards Earth.

Although it may be nearly considered common knowledge, due to the fact that the moon’s rotation aligns almost perfectly with its rotation around the Earth, we only ever see one side of it (the near side). The far side remains hidden

Technically, however, only 41% of the moon’s far side cannot be seen from Earth because of a phenomenon known as libration. Because the moon’s orbit is elliptical, its viewing angle from Earth changes ever so slightly throughout its orbit, exposing some of the far side.

Although this fact is no longer as impressive considering that Pluto is not a planet any longer…our moon is still bigger than the former planet

Of the six American flags placed on the moon, only five are still standing (one was knocked over when the moon lander took off)

Those five remaining flags have all been bleached white though (just think how faded flags get on Earth and now imagine leaving them in the moon’s harsh atmosphere)

On the moon you weigh slightly less than 17% of what you weight on Earth

Although Neil Armstrong was the first man to step on the moon, Buzz Aldrin was the first man to pee on the moon

Sending a man to the moon cost the same amount of time and money as finding Osama bin Laden – roughly 10 years and $100 billion

Buzz Aldrin’s mother’s maiden name was Moon

A survey in 2013 showed that 7% of Americans believe the moon landing was a hoax

NASA and MIT paired up to create a laser based, long distance data transfer system that provides the moon with high speed internet (19 mbps)

Before humans landed on the moon, Russia sent tortoises to orbit the moon

Neil Armstrong carried a piece of the Wright Brothers first airplane when he stepped onto the moon

During the Cold War, the US considered dropping an atomic bomb on the moon to show military superiority

Without the moon, Earth’s days would only last 6 hours. This is because for millions of years the moon has actually been slowing the Earth’s spin down.

11 of the 12 men who walked on the moon were boyscouts

Humans have left 96 bags of urine, vomit, and feces on the moon

Nobody has been on the moon for the last 41 years

The original tapes of the moon landing were erased and re-used by mistake (which led to numerous conspiracy theories)

Recent high definition photos, however, have dispelled the conspiracy theories. They even show the tracks from the lunar rover!

  1. haha! If 7% of people in the US believe we didn't go to the moon that means 93% do believe we went to the moon. Moon hoax theory debunked right their….who wants to be a millionaire lololololol!

  2. So the moon landing video tapes were accidentally erased and written over. One would think they would have been very well protected, easily identifiable and locked away in a hermetically sealed case. Now that the "moon rocks" have been proven to be earth rocks, maybe the videotapes were fake as well. I guess we can no longer question them. lol.

  3. Nah, clearly the moon landing is fake and the earth is flat. Now shut up and let me drive my thorium-powered car on top of solar roadways so I can drive to the the factory that turns CO2 into plastic and ships it out via hyperloops

  4. Extra late breaking fact………all the shit you heard in this video is from NaSa, the company that faked the shit outta the moon landing, why don't ya play that video of the ship lifting off the moon for us one more time guys?, shits so fake it's laughable at this point, oh and they lost the original tapes…hmmmmm, just by accident I'm sure. Thx..sincerely A BELIEVER 🙂

  5. Facts: Humans have peed, considered to throw a bomb (for superiority????) and left bags of shit on the moon.

    This is why humans are trash. Y’all will only start caring if the atmosphere completely thins and waves of tsunamis engulf the earth because of the bullshit we’ve done to the planet. You’d think the fact that we can ONLY live in ONE planet – we’d take better care of it.

  6. As i first while starting to research on this moon landing subject; i began to ask myself "but how did they navigate through space?" Then heard genius Commemder Edwin Aldrin in the press conference say how they used the stars to guide themselves through space to the moonface and i was like "wooow!" And then i think of the arguments about they saying "they didn't see any stars" and i was like "some people haven't pay attention to that part in detail". Also remember seeing the constellations panel Michael Collins had displayed in the command module and i was like "woooowww!"

  7. Hahahahahahahahahaha The Earth is Flat! Now your dopey scientist say the moon is IN EARTHS ATMOSPHERE!!!

    Love the way you fools just regurgitate everything you’re told as a matter of factly w/o ever questioning anything!!

    Globe earth is a religion built on pseudoscience and science fiction followed by the willfully ignorant and bozo zombies.

  8. Bwana never landed on our moon! The Naza claim that 12 supermen went on the moon is bald er dash, total bunk. Proof is a man COULDN'T FIT thro 32 inch egress hatch. Also they weren't able to take ANY PICTURES OF MILKY WAY! Checkmate

  9. sighs I wanted to know facts about the moon, this didn't need to include facts about people who had been on it, or the fact that many people are flat earthing moon landing deniers..to top this off, it wasn't even the best list of facts, i think most people would know most of them..although, I'd probably be surprised..

  10. What about this: The Moon radius is 27,3 percent of Earth radius. The average orbit around Earth is 27,3 Earht days. The Moon spins on its axis once every 27,3 Earth days.
    ( Bonus funfact: The absolute zero temperature (0°K) is minus 273 degrees celsius )

  11. How do you not have the ringing like a bell episode, but have a relative of one astronaut with the name "moon", and 11 of 12 astronauts being f'in boyscouts? You're a govt. Shill POS.
