Included in this section are some songs that give a feel of how the moon has influenced stories and music–in this rare case both are combined. If you think about it, the moon is one of the few things that has managed to advertise itself to all of humanity thoughout time.
The video from NASA about the moons evolution, shown near the end of this document, is simply fascinating to watch. It shows meteor showers that bombarded the moon and probably also bombarded the earth.

The Moons History (and Possible Future 4 Humanity)
The moon is nice to look at, and may hold many resources that are important to humanities future. The face of the Moon might be forever changed if industry (a moon-base) were to established on the surface; but it might also be part our civilization’s first steps to explore, and make use of the vast energy and resources that exist in our solar system.

Some say: that the most likely place to find a self-replicating scout robot (from an alien civilization) would be on a moon in our solar system–perhaps one exist on earths moon.
About the size of our moon: Mercury is also an interesting planet, who’s long history would be fun to see on a video; as done here for the moon. NASA is collecting information about Mercury and scientists will no doubt be working on all the new discoveries that have been made for some time: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/messenger/main/index.html , http://solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/profile.cfm?Object=Mercury.
“Thanks to NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, we now have a better look at some of the moon’s history.”
Recent data from the LCROSS satellite & LCROSS Centaur upper stage rocket (when both of them were made to crashed into the moon at roughly the speed of a bullet) caused some surprise as water was discovered on the Moon: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/LCROSS/main/prelim_water_results.html. Water on the moon would mean that a base on the moon would cost a lot less–as fuel to transport water (& food) might not be necessary. The Moon might literally be the first supply base–in the future–that lets explorers “step” out and explore the rest of the solar system.
The water cycle on the moon has also caused an interest in the soil there: http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2010/21oct_lcross2/
This is a program that allows you to compare the moon’s size to other planets: http://bit.ly/aCEq4M
Wikipedia also has a nice list of orbital objects in our solar system, their relative sizes, and the website is well worth a visit for that reason alone: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Solar_System_objects_by_size
