• On the moon there are no mountains like the Himalaya, produced by one tectonic plate bumping into another. There is no continental drift on the moon. Everywhere, the moon is sheathed by rocky rubble created by constant bombardment by meteoroids, asteroids, and comets.

• No cheese has ever been found on the moon.

Adapted from the National Geographic Atlas of the World (Seventh Edition) and Exploring Your World: The Adventure of Geography, both published by the National Geographic Society.
