The publication notes that small moonquakes have occurred several kilometers below the surface, resulting in cracks and ruptures. This evidence was recorded with seismographs and has led scientists to believe that, like the Earth, the moon could also have a molten core.

Reader’s Digest also reported on moonquakes, noting that the moon has a crust which shifts and changes, and when it heats up or is affected by meteorites, these small seismic vibrations are triggered.

You’ve heard the term "lunatics," but did you ever associate it with the moon?

Probably not, but according to Reader’s Digest, scientists and philosophers from the Middle Ages believed that the moon had an effect on individuals health and that seizures, fever, and rheumatism seemed to coincide with the full moon.

The publication also notes that because of this connection, those who were affected were referred to as “lunatics.”

The Merriam Webster dictionary also expands on this point, revealing that the term was first used in the 14th century to describe those experiencing “a severely disordered state of mind.”

According to Business Insider, these seeds were from a variety of different trees, including Loblolly Pine, Sycamore, Redwood, Douglas Fir, and Sweetgum, and when the astronauts returned to Earth, these “moon trees” were planted all across the United States.

These trees thrived, suggesting that there was no effect from their trip to the moon.

The majority of humans tend to sleep at night and function during the day, and for this reason, we often associate the moon with sleep. But is there a direct correlation between these two?
