Answer:

No. It is not possible for sound waves to travel on Moon.

Explanation:

Remember that,

Sound waves need a medium with particles to travel through.

As we consider Moon, It does not have an atmosphere to have particles since there is no to very less air.

So, sound waves cannot travel on Moon.
