This is episode 3 of 3 where we describe the book "Getting a Feel for Lunar Craters". It features tactile diagrams of the lunar surface designed to educate the blind and visually impaired about the wonders of Earth’s moon. H&T Correspondent Shawn Klein touches and describes the graphics as the book’s author Professor David Hurd and Host Dave Uhlman talk about the science of the moon. In this episode we describe the side of the moon we can’t see.  We also talk about a crater which is about ¼ the size of the moon that was only recently discovered.  People refer to the “Dark Side” but we explain why that is not true.  More accurately it is the far side.  The moon is stuck in an orbit with the same side always facing earth.  People had never seen it until we launched space probes to look at the back side.  We reveal it all in this episode and tell you how you can feel the “Dark Side” for yourself.

H&T Correspondent Shawn Klein touches and describes the graphics as the book’s author Professor David Hurd and Dave Uhlman talk about the science of the moon. In this episode we describe craters and how they are formed.  We describe one called Tyco which is located on the front, bottom half of the surface. It is a large circle with lines radiating in all directions from its center.  These are formed from a meteor’s impact, explosion and the resulting debris.

Correspondent Tom Uhlman visits Mt Marapi a volcano in Indonesia. He takes a walk on a narrow path and describes the volcano and the people who live around it.

Mount Merapi, Gunung Merapi (literally Fire Mountain in Indonesian/Javanese), is an active stratovolcano located on the border between Central Java and Yogyakarta, Indonesia. It is the most active volcano in Indonesia and has erupted regularly since 1548. It is close to Jacarta and thousands of people live on the flanks of the volcano, with villages as high as 1,700 meters (5,600 ft) above sea level. On the afternoon of 25 October 2010 Mount Merapi erupted lava from its southern and southeastern slopes. People living within a 20 km (12.5 mile) zone were told to evacuate. Officials said about 500 volcanic earthquakes had been recorded on the mountain over the weekend of 23–24 October, and that the magma had risen to about 1 kilometer (3,300 ft) below the surface due to the seismic activity.
