TIDBITS® GOES TO

THE MOON by Kathy Wolfe

We’ve all seen it nearly every day of our lives. This week, Tidbits is full of “bet you didn’t know that” facts about the moon. • The moon is 225,745 miles (363,301 km) from Earth. If you were able to plan a trip there, it would be about a two-day trip on a rocket or a 625-hour ride on a 747 jet flying at 400 mph (644 km/hr). If you could drive your car there, it would take 135 days traveling at 70 mph (112 km/hr).

• Driving around the circumference of the moon, 6,790 miles (10,864 km), is about equal to a trip from New York to London and back. The moon is about 27% the size of Earth, with an area of 14,658,000 square miles (37,932,000 sq. km). That’s about 9.4 billion acres. • Temperatures on the moon vary from 273 degrees F (134 C) at the hottest time of the day to -244 degrees F (-153C) at night. A day on the moon from sunrise to sunrise is about 708 hours. It rotates on its axis at a speed of about 10 mph (16 km/hr). Compare this with Earth, which rotates at about 1,000 mph (1,609 km/ hr). Yet both the moon and Earth complete their orbit in about the same amount of time. turn the page for more!

THE MOON (continued): • The average speed at which the moon orbits the Earth is 2,287 mph (3,680 km/hr.) • We only see about 59% of the moon’s surface from Earth. The pattern of the moon’s rotation causes the same side to face Earth at all times. What we frequently call the “dark side” of the moon (that part we can’t see) should really be referred to as the “far side.” It has only been photographed from spacecraft. The surface is covered by a mantle made up of an 825-mile-thick (1,330 km) layer of iron and magnesium-rich rock known as regolith. It’s been pounded by meteors, asteroids, and comets, which have created countless craters across its expanse. The widest craters are 140 miles (225 km) in diameter and are as deep as 15,000 ft. (4,500 m). There are mountains standing as high as 16,000 ft. (5,000 m). It’s estimated that the moon weighs about 81 quintillion tons (74 sextillion kg). • Although the moon looks round to us, it’s really egg-shaped. As we look at it, the smaller end of the egg is pointed toward us. It appears to be about the same size as the sun, but it’s actually 400 times smaller. Because the moon is 400 times closer to Earth than the sun is, the two appear about the same size. The moon is actually moving away from Earth about 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) a year. • Gravity on the moon is just 1/6 that of Earth. This means if you weigh 120 lbs. (54.4 kg) on Earth, you weigh only 20 lbs. (9.1 kg) on the moon. And if you don’t feel like dieting, remember that because of gravitational effects, you weigh just a bit less when the moon is directly overhead.

• The world first saw close-up TV pictures of the moon’s surface in 1964 when images were sent back by Ranger 7, the first U.S. space probe. • In May, 1961, President John F. Kennedy stated his goal in an address to Congress of “landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the Earth” by the end of the 1960s. The first manned spacecraft to the moon was Apollo 8 in 1968, when Frank Borman, James Lovell, and William Anders circled the moon 10 times before heading back to Earth. • The Apollo 11 crew made history in July, 1969 when they made the first landing. On July 20, Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon. There are very few Americans unfamiliar with his famous words, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Armstrong later reported that what he actually said was, “that’s one small step for a man…” The crew spent 21 hours and 36 minutes on the surface, with 2 hours and 36 minutes outside the craft, walking on the surface. The footprints of the Apollo 11 crew astronauts will remain for thousands of years, considering there is no wind or adverse weather to disturb them.

THE MOON (continued): • The Apollo 11 crew collected lunar rocks weighing 842 lbs. (382 kg.). • A total of 12 men have walked on the moon. No one has done so since December, 1972 when Eugene Cernan of the final manned mission to the moon, Apollo 17, became the last man to set foot on the lunar surface. Apollo 17 was the sixth landing of humans on the moon. • Do you know the difference between waxing and waning? During the phases of the moon’s cycle, when it appears to be getting larger, it’s called waxing, while waning is when it appears to get smaller.

• If we didn’t have the moon, the oceans would have no tides. Tides rise because of the pull of the moon’s gravity. This gravity is strongest on the side of Earth nearest the moon, and it pulls up the water slightly, which is high tide. On the side of Earth farthest from the moon, the gravity is at its weakest, and the water moves a little away from the moon. • According to folklore, if you see the slim crescent moon over your right shoulder, it’s considered good luck, while seeing it over your left shoulder is unlucky. Legend further states that if you move to a new home during a waning moon, you will never go hungry.

FAMOUS WOMEN OF THE WORLD:

VIRGINIA WOODHULL

• Victoria and Tennie were very successful as spiritual mediums and healers and made the move to New York City to capitalize on this success. Victoria married again, this time to James Blood, a former Union Army colonel in the Civil War, who had also been the first mayor of Lawrence, Kansas. The sisters’ most famous client was railroad millionaire Cornelius Vanderbilt. In appreciation for their services, in 1870 Vanderbilt helped them open their own stock brokerage house on Wall Street, and the sisters became the first women stockbrokers in history. The company was immediately successful, patronized by wealthy widows and other women of means.

VICTORIA WOODHULL (continued): candidate for U.S. President, nominated by the Equal Rights Party. The Party chose former slave and abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass as her running mate, although he never acknowledged the nomination. Victoria’s platform included an eight-hour workday, a graduated income tax, social welfare programs, and women’s rights. As a divorced woman, she advocated new divorce laws that gave women the right to leave unbearable marriages. In her words, “I have an inalienable constitutional and natural right to love whom I may, to love as long or as short a period as I can, to change that love every day if I please!” • Just days before the Presidential election, Woodhull, her husband, and her sister were arrested on obscenity charges for running an exposé on popular Brooklyn preacher Henry Ward Beecher. Victoria spent election day in jail, and although she was acquitted of all charges, her reputation was destroyed and her businesses went bankrupt. •

HAM IT UP!

Say You Saw It In...

It might be meat cut from the thigh of a pig’s hind leg, or it might be a theatrical person showing off. But ham- might also be the beginning of a number of different terms, as you’ll soon see. • The word hamadryad can refer to a variety of things. In Greek mythology, it’s a wood nymph who inhabits a tree as its spirit. The nymph only lives as long as the tree. Hamadryad is also another word for the king cobra. Did you know that a cobra bite has a mortality rate of 50-60% if left untreated? A bite can be fatal in as little as 30 minutes. • Look up and find the constellation Aries the Ram, and you’ll see Hamal, the brightest star in Aries. Hamal, along with Sheratan and Mesarthim, make up the head of the ram. Hamal is about 65.8 light years away from Earth.

Pet Bits

Q: I adopted my domestic short hair cat as a stray. Sable was quite sick for the first few months as a young kitten. I had her spayed at 9 months and declawed (I know I’m awful). Since the surgery, she’s become quite a biter. Every time something happens, like I go away on vacation, the biting gets worse. Sable is punishing me. Even her play involves biting. Can you help? A: Smart as we are, we’re not cats. Often, when kittens are brought up by people, they never learn not to bite. If Sable had bitten another kitten in her litter or Mom, she would have learned her lesson instantly. Not being feline, we have a difficult time replicating that instant communication. Certified cat behavior consultant Pam JohnsonBennett, of Nashville, TN, host of “Psycho Kitty” on Discovery Channel in the UK, explains that the biting might increase when you’re away because of a lack of stimulation while you’re gone, or maybe anxiety plays a role - not because Sable is punishing you. “It’s important to teach your cat what is appropriate for play, chase, pounce and bite,” Johnson-Bennett says. “Play (with Sable) with a pole toy at least once a day. If you won’t be home, offer a variety of toys. Do consider that cats - while they are independent - can get lonely.” If your cat bites you, offer no attention except a stern, “No.” Then calmly walk away. Don’t create a chase game. The best instructor remains a feline. Consider adopting another cat as a pal for Sable. If you do, introduce the cats very gradually, says JohnsonBennett, author of “Think Like a Cat: How to Raise a Well-adjusted Cat - Not a Sour Puss” (Penguin Publishing, New York, NY, 2011; $18). By the way, you did a great thing by taking in this kitten, but the declaw was not necessary. Amputating part of a kitten’s toes is, indeed, awful.

• Wrestlers are familiar with the hammerlock, that hold in which one arm of the opponent is twisted and forced upward behind the back. • “To be or not to be, that is the question.” Whose question was it? This famous phrase was uttered by Prince Hamlet in Shakespeare’s play The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, written around 1602. It chronicles the story of Hamlet’s plot to avenge the murder of his father King Hamlet by his brother Claudius. Hamlet questions whether it is worthwhile to stay alive when life contains so many hardships. Two of the most famous actors to portray Hamlet on stage were Junius Brutus Booth and Edwin Booth, father and brother of John Wilkes Booth who assassinated 16th U.S. president Abraham Lincoln. • We see his face nearly every day on the U.S. ten-dollar bill, but who was Alexander Hamilton? One of America’s founding fathers, Hamilton graduated from what is now Columbia University, served in the Revolutionary War, was elected to the Continental Congress, practiced law, and founded the Bank of New York. He is commemorated on our currency because he was the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, and was instrumental in establishing the U.S. Mint. In 1804, after Hamilton made derogatory remarks about Vice President Aaron Burr, Burr claimed his honor had been attacked, and challenged Hamilton to a duel. Burr shot Hamilton in the lower abdomen, mortally wounding him, and Hamilton died the next day. Ironically, the dueling site, along the Hudson River at Weehawken, New Jersey, was the same site where Hamilton’s eldest son had been killed in a duel three years earlier. • The 25 species of hamsters range in size from 13.4 inches (34 cm) long to dwarf hamsters measuring 2 inches (5.5 cm) long. The Syrian species has the shortest gestation period of any placental mammal at only 16 to 18 days, yet they’ve been known to have litters of 20 pups! A hamster’s eyesight is very poor and it relies on scent to find its way. • That tiny row of hooks that connects the front and back wings of a bee is known as a hamulus. A human’s hamulus is a similar hook-like apparatus on our inner ear’s cochlea.
