How far above the surface of the Earth does an object have to be in order for it to have a weight which is 0.53 times the same weight as it would have on the surface of the Moon? (Ignore any effects from the Earth's gravity for the object on the Moon's surface or from the Moon's gravity for the object above the Earth.)
