  1. There was a statement that the Moon has tides. They’d have to be very different tides than we’re familiar with on Earth since the Moon is locked and the Earth isn’t.

  2. I really like how they’ve tied this into education, with active participation by students. Good for science, good for raising NASA’s profile.

  3. An educational video until the very end where the lady from MIT makes her pitch for getting students interested in an “fun” career in Science and Engineering. The American aerospace industry including Boeing, Lockheed and Northrup-Grumman demand a steady flow of young, cheap talent to replace old faithful employees they periodically lay off!
