I would see how far and how high I could jump. Then, I'd make moon dust angels. Oh, and then I would lie on my back and gaze into the cosmos to see what I could see. And marvel at the wonder of it all.

Hmm. Well, let's see. Phyllis, I don't know about everybody else, but I've no objection to the robot looking like Sean Connery. Cheese & crackers sounds good. The crumbs wouldn't float around on the Moon, just take a while to settle in the low gravity. It's not like being in microgravity in a spacecraft.

But yes, Jim, the stargazing would be fabulous - no atmosphere, no light pollution. If we're in the right place I might even be able to see the Andromeda Galaxy. I know it's a naked eye object, but I can't see it even in a fairly good site.

Lori, beautiful ideas. Moon dust angels. If no people disturbed them, they would last for centuries (or longer) since there's no weather on the Moon. Meteorites impacts cause some surface erosion and there is a teeny bit from the solar wind, but that's about it.

Well, first of all I'd have to be on the moon during a blue moon, to set the proper atmosphere.

I'd have some sort of delightful beverage to sip on, like a Blue Hawaii or Cosmo, and munchies to nibble on.

I'd sit on a purple chaize lounge, suspended above the moon's surface, in a total state of relaxation. I'd whisper something into the ear of the man on the moon, and he'd giggle in return.

And then, the rest of the time would be spent in pure contemplation of the glory of the Universe.

Shooting stars would spray me with their tails and comets would speed by in the blink of an eye. A wish or two would be made.

I'd see a thousand galaxies, a million stars and planets still unknown to man and realize.....heck, I could get used to this.

Pure peace, away from it all.

What a delightful trip that would be. smile

I would like to fly like they did in the cave in the Robert Heinlein short story.

I would build an observatory on the far side of the moon so I could see deeper into space than anyone has seen before.
