The same....

#### Explanation:

**Mass** = defined as the amount of matter. If you tranport it to the Moon the amount of matter won't change so the Mass stays the same.

The **WEIGHT** is an entirely different matter (no pun intended)

Weight is a force, calculated as

Here on earth

The weight (Force) therefore is

In deep space there is no noticeable influence of gravitational fields (for our purposes in this answer at least) so the weight will be

The gravitational pull on the surface of the Moon is roughly 1/6th , so the **weight** of the object would be about 62 N..
