What if we looked into the night sky and never saw the moon? Our world shares one moon. It has become a part of our global culture, often humanized to help us make sense of our lives. Famous writers have used the moon in such a way:
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars!” – Norman Vincent Peale
“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” – Mark Twain
“We ran as if to meet the moon.” – Carl Sandburg
But does the moon serve a purpose to the people who live on Earth? Do we, here on Earth, need it to survive? Do other moons in our universe offer answers of whether there’s life elsewhere in the universe? What do you think? Read this article from Earth and Sky news and write what you think.
