Moon dust may be dangerous to humans

the moon — not the safest place for Homo Sapiens.

While the moon reflects sunlight and illuminates the Earth, we rarely think about what could be our life on the moon. And when you think of yourself, think about the many surprising moments, including the erection on the moon, for example, Lunapark, just like in the movies and cartoons. Meanwhile, an Earth satellite could be a dangerous place for humans. And it's not even that the moon has no atmosphere and there is nothing to breathe. The danger lies in , which is actually classified as dangerous. But why?

What dangers await us in space and on the moon?

To Begin with, that in itself, the cosmos — this is an unfavorable environment for the person. Not so long ago we told you about the results of one of the last , according to which 50 days in space, is fraught with disruption of blood flow and thrombus formation in the jugular veins. Among the other dangers of space most clearly are space radiation and weightlessness. But even assuming that somehow all of these problems we will escape and build a base on the moon/amusement Park, our satellite will still be danger from lunar dust.

Sharp dust particles can damage the spacesuit of astronauts

When the astronauts of missions “Apollo” first set foot on the moon, the first thing they noticed — is the absence of wind. Because this lunar dust is almost not moving on the surface and the individual particles have a rather sharp edge. On the Ground the wind over time hones a sharp edge, so they can not hurt us, and the moon can cause a lot of problems. Moreover, that they are dangerous to breathe — after landing on the moon back in the spaceship and take off the helmets, which may be remnants of the dust — such dust can damage fabrics and materials of the suit. For example, one astronaut named Harrison Schmitt after unintentional accidental contact with the lunar dust during one of his missions, an attack of uncontrollable sneezing, excessive eye irritation and blockage of the sinuses.

what do you think, what danger can hide a satellite of our planet? Let's talk about it in the comments and members

Moreover, a number of scientific studies that the inhalation of lunar dust it can interact with body fluids, creating a so-called hydroxyl radicals. Unfortunately, removing this material from your body will not be so easy. But if moon dust is able to tear the suit, imagine what it can do to your lungs. Due to the fact that NASA plans to send man to the moon by 2024 under the program , and China and intend to build on the moon their own , researchers from around the world to solve the problem of lunar dust as the health and safety of future astronauts is a top priority.
