Researchers have examined the chemical content of Moon rocks retrieved by astronauts during the Apollo missions and have found that they contain volatile gases such as helium, hydrogen, and argon" The researchers suggest that stray electrons, freed when the rock cracks, may ignite these gases" Indeed, lunar rock samples, when fractured in the lab, throw off sparks.
What causes these rocks to crack, on the lunar surface? The flashes are most often seen at the borders between sunlight and shade on the Moon, where the surface is being either intensely heated or cooled.

THE AMERICAN EDUCATION SYSTEM
The American education system offers international students the most diverse set of education options in the world. In fact, an international student who elects to take advantage of the American education system can pursue anything from nuclear science to film and dance. American education possibilities are almost endless!
The American education system requires that students complete 12 years of primary and secondary education prior to attending university or college. This may be accomplished either at public (or government-operated) schools, or at private schools. These 12 years of schooling (or their equivalent) may also be completed outside the USA, thus giving foreign students the opportunity to pursue the benefits of the American education system and obtain a quality American education. Perhaps one of the most impressive facts is the large number of presidents, prime ministers and leaders from other countries who have experienced the American education system and graduated from a university or school in the USA. In many fields and industries, the American education system offers the most cutting-edge, sought-after programs at the world's best schools. That is why graduating from an accredited American school and being exposed to the rigors of the American education system is an investment in your future.
1. An international student can pursue either Scientific/ Medical study or Art study in America.
2. Before attending university or college in America, students have to complete 12 years of schooling inside or outside the USA.
3. Public schools in America means private schools.
4. A few presidents, prime ministers and leaders from other countries could take advantages of American education system.
5. The writer of this passage thinks that the American education system is one of the best ones in the world.
