Ever heard that the Moon is made out of CHEESE?

I know that we have all heard the tale at some point that the moon was made out of cheese. Well unfortuneately for those of us who love to eat cheese that is just a fallacy. Science has proven that the moon is i fact made out of ROCKS! Now the myth about the moon being made out of cheese orginated a very long time ago when people had no clue what the moon was made out of. So they decided that since it had a similar shape and color to cheese that, that was in fact what it was made out of. In the past fifty years scientists have done alot of research and we have even been to the moon a couple of times and have taken samples of the moon back down to earth for research. The tests show that the moon is in fact made out of rock and not cheese.

Another popular theory about the moon is that there is a man who lives on it... Well sorry to say that the man who lives on the moon is about as real as it being made out of cheese. The reason why for centuries humans have thought there was a man on the moon is because we only see one side of it, and that side has several very large craters and with those craters and the light relfecting off of the moon it makes it look like there is a face on it.... O well I guess we are just going to have to find another way to explain the moon to little kids.

  1. This post is adorable! My niece just came home from school the other day and told me that her and her friend were arguing about what the moon was made out of. When she asked me for confirmation I almost told her cheese just to be funny but I told her the more logical answer. Rocks!
