Gravity on moon

We know that the first man to walk on moon was Neil Armstrong. it is said that there is  no force of gravity on moon. then how did Neil Armstrong moved a few steps on moon?

(Saranya asks)

Answer:

Who says there is no gravity in moon?

The acceleration due to gravity on moon is 1/6 that on earth.

I feel that you are confused by the concept of weightlessness in satellites.

On moon, it has its own gravity which is one sixth that on earth.
