Description:

This well-illustrated article, from the BBC, presents the dangers of lunar dust to astronauts and how this threat is being investigated. An image illustrates the Swiss-cheese-like voids in a speck of lunar dust, and the article contains a description of how these voids increase the dust's chemical activity. Several possible methods of reducing the risk are contained including creating special filtration systems and paving landing pads and roads to turn the dust to glass.
