  • 1) you have to breathe
  • 2) you have to drink water
  • 3) you must know where you are and what direction to go
  • 4) you will get hungry and need to eat
  • 5) you are on the lighted side of the moon, so the solar transmitter will work to communicate your location or cry for help
  • 6) 50’ of rope always comes in handy – there are deep craters
  • 7) first aid kits are a must
  • 8) parachute silk can protect you from the glare of the sun – it never sets, remember
  • 9) life raft can be used to haul all the other necessary items
  • 10) signal flares – a means of communication
  • 11) pistols - they can be fired onto the surface of the moon for propulsion – being as there is little gravity to prevent that movement
  • 12) pet milk can be used with the food – must keep your strength up
  • 13) portable heating unit – we might not get to the Mother ship before it cools off even though the sun is shinning it may get cool
  • 14) magnetic compass – we are on the moon – there are no longer magnetic fields
  • 15) and last and least effective – matches – they require oxygen to burn
