>> >> Scientists and engineers figuring out how to return astronauts to the moon, set up habitats, and mine lunar soil to produce anything from building materials to rocket fuels have been scratching their heads over what to do about moondust. It's everywhere! The powdery grit gets into everything, jamming seals and abrading spacesuit fabric. It also readily picks up electrostatic charge, so it floats or levitates off the lunar surface and sticks to faceplates and camera lenses. It might even be toxic. >> http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2005/09nov_lawnmower.htm The electrostatically charged moon dust once disturbed would not settle for a very long time So a soft landing craft would kick up large amounts of dust However the fake photos showed no dust..... contrary to reality..... The same goes for supposed moon walking... a very dusty place for anyone, and yet photos were crystal clear. I think it has been admitted that the "photos" were faked, becaue the camera technology was no out there enough. The second reason against a man landing is the L1 and L2 points of the Moon show that any orbit around the Moon is highly elliptical..... making a controlled landing way beyond the technology of the day... cover blown !
