The Moon with science educator Selwyn Holland

Selwyn Holland is our guest fielding questions about what makes the Moon a natural satellite, how it effects the tides, and what explains the changing visibility of the Moon from Earth across the various lunar phases. We also cover some popular culture perceptions of the Moon including whether a full moon could affect human behaviour and Selwyn’s views on whether the Moon landing had been faked.
