Introduction: How to Moonwalk

In this Instructable, I will be describing how to move around if you ever find yourself stranded on the moon without a lunar rover. These are the official Moonwalks as described in the Space Academy Mission Journal distributed at the Huntsville, Alabama Space and Rocket Center.

Step 1: The Bunny-Hop

One of the possible moon-walk versions is the "Bunny Hop". To do this, just hop around, jumping with both feet off the ground at the same time. After getting a chance to use a 1/6 chair (an astronaut training device that simulates the moons gravity), I found this version to be the easiest and it also gives you the highest vertical jump too.

Here are some videos I found on YouTube of a 1/6 chair in action:

Step 2: The Slow Motion Jog

The second moon-walk is the Jog. To do this, all you need to do is jog, just like back on earth, but with slow, exaggerated leaps. I find this to be the most fun way to moonwalk.

Step 3: The Side-to-Side

The third and final Moon-walk variation is the side to side. To do this, you must leap to the side, putting one foot out and bringing the other up to meet it, like a heel clicking, dancing elf, or this random guy.

Step 4: The End!

Now you know how to successfully walk on the moon. Safe travels and don't pull a Charlie Duke!
