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.

Because, sound is a vibration of particles. Sound can travel in air, water, etc. that are a medium.

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.

This animation is an example for the Sound waves produced by speaker that we hear by the vibration of Air particles:

This thing cannot happen on Moon because there is no vibration of particles in the medium since there is no to very less air.
