Apparently, the moon is not made out of cheese

Marshmallow 'moon' marks NASA anniversary

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (AP) — NASA is celebrating the 40th anniversary of man's first steps on the lunar surface with a giant moon pie.

The concoction of marshmallow squeezed between two round graham crackers and dipped in chocolate is normally made in a hand-sized portion.

NASA's oversized treat will be available a slice at a time to visitors Monday to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Cape Canaveral

The anniversary moon pie is 40 inches in diameter, 6 inches high and weighs 55 pounds.
