LIFE ON THE MOON.
It is wull established that tbero is
no ono at jirovmt living on tbo
moon who is in tbo least liko our
boIvcp, for tbo conditions existing
llioro would bo fatal to lives sueb as
ours. In tbo first placo tboro is no
atiuospboro worth speaking of, at
loast uo moro than is to bo found iu
tbo exhausted receiver of an air
pump. Then the moon has to do
without water; or, at any rato, if
tboro is any it is probably ice.
A day on the moon lasts for a
fortnight, and all the whilo tbo sun
is pouring down light and heat,
which at the first blush scums as if
it ought to make it very hot, as
tboro is uo atmosphere to orvo as a
protection; but, ou tbo olhor hand,
there is nothing to prevont it rntli-,
aling the heat away almost as quick
ly as it gets it, and so it sooms likely
that it resembles somewhat the tops
of mountains ou the oarth which,
though nearer to the sun than the
valleys, and loss protected by atmos
phore, yet are regions of perpetual
snow. Uut if wo cannot make a very
good guess as to the temperature iu
the daytime, yet we can be sure the '
thermometer iu thd lunar night'
(that also lasts a fortnight) must go
down to at least 200 degrees below
Moreover, aput from the tedious- ;
y long uays, tuere is no variation
all through the year, for seasons
such as we havo are practically un
known ou the moon. Even the
onrthshiuo on the moon is not what
it was, for now it never shines on
half the moon at all, and hardly
shifts its positions oven for the parts
whore it does.
Again, in times lonu past, when
perhaps them was some water ou
the moon, the carih must have
caused enormous tides, which iu
thoir way must havo boon very in
couveuieutj but now, even if the
water were lhor, tbo earth would
not cause tide, for it dot's not shift
its position enough to pruluco
15ut thro are other peculiarities
abjut this curious world duo to its
mass that claim some attontiou.
Everybody kuows that the moon is
a vory small body only 2000 miles or
so across; tbo number of acres on its
mirfaco is only one to every thirteon
acres on the earth, aud if we had a
hole as big as the oar'h it would
lake fifty moons to fill it.
A pound of feathers and a pound
of load weighed together havo tbo
Riinio weight, but a cubic yard of
feathers, aud a cubic yard of load
weigh very differently; and so it is
with the earth, that while it is fifty
times as big as the moon, it is eighty
times as heavy, for it is made of
If the moon wore as largo as t ho
oarth, aud only weighed one eighti
eth of what the oarth does, then
tbo force of gravity on the moon
would also be an eightieth of what
it is ou the earth; but as the sur
face of tho earth is much farther
from its centre than tho moon's sur
face is from its centre, it follows that
ou tho moou wo get a sort of con
centrated ossonco of great gravity
which brings it up from only being
an oightioth to being a sixth of what
it is on tbo earth. But eveu that
would have a curious offect ou peo
ple living ou the moon. A man
weighing 12st. hero would only
woigh 2st. there, and if wo can jump
Gft. high on the oarth wo could clear
SGft. ou the moon.
Corpulency ou the moon would be
shorn of half its torrors, and aerial
navigation would bo perfectly easy
if there wero as good an atmos
phere as wo havo hero. If tho same
sort of proportion wero to exist on
tho moou as exists on tho earth, be
tween sizo and strength, the people
on tho moon ought to bo either a
good deal bigger or a good deal less
muscular than wo aro, aud so we got
tho curious fact that the inhabitants
of ory little worlds ought to be
very big, and tho dwellers iu very
big worlds ought to be vory little.
Thus, if tho suggestion Lord Kel
vin made that tho germs of life
might bo carried on a meteorite
from world to world bo correct, wo
ought to have got our giauU from
