Can I jump higher when the moon is overhead?
« on: 01/06/2008 11:23:55 »
rob asked the Naked Scientists:

If the moon is overhead me in the sky - will I be able to jump higher due to gravitational pull - and if so, by how much?

thanks

What do you think?

Yes, and by the same amount - very nearly.
