They are millions and even billions of years apart, even though they hit your eye all at the exact same time. Picture Hellraiser's face: All of those pins may look like they were put there at the same time, but maybe they were put there one year at a time, which makes you feel kinda sorry for Hellraiser, huh?
Because of gravitational effects, you weigh slightly less when the moon is directly overhead. So if you eat a cheesecake topped with a cheesesteak and then weigh yourself naked below the moon, you'll actually have lost a pound or two. Science rules.
Though closest to the sun, Mercury has no atmosphere, so it's only hot during the day. Venus is actually the hottest planet because of its thick cloud cover - it traps the sun's heat causing it to reach temperatures as high as 932 degrees Fahrenheit! * Venus drops mic and leaves as Mercury stands there, speechless.*
Due to weightlessness, an astronaut's cartilage disks open up, causing the spine to expand, making the astronaut a full two inches taller. Awesome! That means if the NBA moves to outer space - I'm still not making it. They'll all be taller too.
Which is why we have shadows. Think about it: Light travels all that way to reach the destination of Earth and once its goal is a mere several feet within reach, you stop it with your body. That makes you a bully. Shame on you.
The footprints left by the Apollo astronauts who walked the moon will be there for a good 100 million years or more, thanks to the lack of atmosphere and wind on the satellite. That means that in the distant future, superior beings will know exactly how big Neil Armstrong's shoe size was, and fashion a Nike sneaker that can replicate his boot. Because, yes, Nike moonboots will still be in fashion.
