Url: http://www.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/ess05.sci.ess.eiu.extemp/ext...
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: Although the airless Moon experiences no weather analogous to terrestrial weather, conditions there are nothing short of extreme. This video segment recounts some of the experiences Apollo 16 astronauts had as they explored the lunar surface, particularly extremes of heat and cold occurring in sunlit and shady areas. The segment is three minutes eleven seconds in length. A background essay and discussion questions are included.
