- The temperature of the lunar surface can be very hot. Some say
this precludes working there. This page discusses the problems of
heat on the lunar surface. You might also enjoy this primer on the physics of heat transfer.
- Lunar soil is an interesting material. This page discusses some
of its unique properties.
- Many people consider the moon rocks to be the most compelling
evidence that the Apollo missions were successful. Not surprisingly,
conspiracy theorists have elaborate scenarios for how they were

- Radiation and Film
- How would radiation affect photographic film? Conspiracists have
done some tests to answer this question. But is it the right answer?
- Leaping and Walking
- Did the astronauts really leap to great heights in the lunar
surface? Why do they walk so strangely?
- Simulating Low Gravity
- How would it be possible to simulate low gravity on the moon and
microgravity during the voyage?
