The Big Question: "Why does the moon follow us?"

Synopsis: Harrison investigates intriguing facts about the moon, like why people think wolves howl at the moon (they don't), whether the moon really turns people into werewolves, who the first men on the moon were and why the moon appears to follow us. Viewers at home test out their jumping skills as Harrison demonstrates where we'd be without gravity!

My Great Challenge: Using nothing more than a light, their wits, and funny headgear, challengers must figure out why the moon is sometimes full and why at times, it disappears!

In the Field: Harrison goes to...the Moon! Okay, maybe not the actual moon, but a simulated moonscape created by the Space Agency, where astronauts practice their extraterrestrial techniques and test out new equipment. There, a lunar geologist provides the answers to more kid questions, explaining how the Moon was formed and why there are craters.
