What is your weight on the Moon?

Your weight on the Moon is 16.5% what you would experience on Earth. In other words, if you weighed 100 kg on Earth, you would weigh a mere 16.5 kg on the Moon. For you imperial folks, imagine you tipped the scales at 200 pounds. Your weight on the Moon would only be 33 pounds.

## What is Earth’s radius?

6,371 km
According to data taken by 183 high-school classes participating in a World Year of Physics project, “Measure the Earth with Shadows”, the radius of Earth is 6563 km, compared to the accepted value for the mean radius of 6371 km. Of course, no one is claiming the size of Earth has actually changed.

Which is bigger sun or moon?

The sun and the moon are about the same size when you look at them in the sky, though that’s just thanks to the coincidence that the sun is about 400 times farther away than the moon and also about 400 times bigger. Another fun coincidence is that the radius of the sun is about twice the distance to the moon.

### Can we live on Phobos?

Tiny, in fact. Phobos, for example, is only 6 miles (10km) wide. But a tiny, habitable world is, after all, still habitable. The rest of the planets, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, are all out.
