The Moon was probably made 4.5 billion years ago when a large object hit the Earth and blasted out rocks that came together to orbit round the Earth. The Moon is much smaller than the Earth. It is airless, waterless and lifeless. The gravity of the Moon, causes two high tides on the Earth every day.
The first person to walk on the Moon was the American astronaut, Neil Armstrong. He stepped out of his space craft, the Eagle, on 21 July 1969 and said these famous words, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”.

The sun is the largest star in our solar system. The earth is the right distance from the sun so our planet is not too hot or too cold. The light from the sun takes 8 minutes to reach earth and gives life to plants. Astronauts will never be able to land on the sun as it much too hot.
