According to the Russian satellite network, scientists wrote in the article “GeoHealth” published by the American Geophysical Society that the main danger to the life of the lunar base is not cosmic radiation, but lunar dust, including a large amount of toxic and carcinogenic substances. substances.
On September 25, 2017, the European Space Agency released a 3D lunar rendering of the lunar base on September 22. By 2040, it is estimated that 100 people will live on the moon, melt ice in water, 3D printing presses and live tools and plant plants on the lunar soil.
“Prolonged contact with moon dust will not only cause serious problems in the lungs, but also cause inflammation and cancer. If the "landing moon" lasts weeks or months, it is impossible to prevent. " Stone Brooks scientist Bruce Demple said.
In recent years, representatives of the Russian Space Agency and representatives of NASA are increasingly talking about the possibility of creating "permanent" settlements on the surface of the moon. One of the reasons is that in some craters at the poles of the moon is a lot of water.
Traditionally, human life is threatened by cosmic radiation, high-energy particles and some other characteristics of outer space on the Moon and other airless objects. Depp and his colleagues discovered another serious risk factor by examining the problems faced by the Apollo astronauts during their landing on the moon.
All this shows that the builders of the lunar base and spacesuit designers should focus on developing systems that prevent dust from entering the living room. Scientists noted that it is necessary to develop a non-stick material with charged moon dust or build an airlock chamber to remove particles from the surface of the spacesuit.
