Astronomy Fun Fact #23

At the height of his career, Michael Jordan could jump ~3.5 ft into the air. But if he went to the Moon, he'd be able to jump >20 ft in the air* because gravity is only 1/6th as strong there as it is here on Earth.

*The actual number is smaller because of the added weight and decreased mobility from the spacesuit he'd have to wear.
