It seems like wherever we go, the moon is right there beside us to keep company. The moon is constantly spinning on its axis to rotate around the Earth. This force is known as synchronous rotation, and rotates at a speed of ten miles per hour.

16) A Tomb On the Moon




There are many interesting burial sites, but none as unique as the moon. One famous geologist and astronomer named Eugene Shoemaker, had his wish to be buried on the moon. NASA honored Shoemaker's bizarre request when he passed away in 1998. His ashes still remain scattered on the moon to this day.
