Man Caused Moon to Warm 1.8 degrees F.

Post by Rob Lister » Mon Jun 11, 2018 9:05 pm

Calibrate your skeptometers before reading this ...
Scientists have finally figured out the reason behind a small but noticeable uptick in the temperature of the moon's subsurface while it was under study by astronauts of the Apollo missions in the 1970s. The culprit? Blame those very same astronauts. The CBC explains: Astronauts walking on the moon or riding around in rovers disturbed the surface soil and exposed the darker soil beneath. The darker soil then absorbed more of the sun's heat instead of reflecting it away, and that resulted in the temperatures rising 1.8 degrees to 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit from 1971 to 1977. The readings came from probes sunk into the moon in 1971 and 1972 by astronauts, and the data was collected through 1977, according to a release at Phys.org.

I suppose I buy that but I had to read it a few times to realize that the temperature probes were right smack in the middle of the human tracks. Still interesting.

Numerous tracks, but "darker"? :?

Why can't they just say 1 degree Celsius instead. It's a physics website, I think most readers are fluent in metric.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

They are going for clarity not PC.

It appears darker to me. I suppose a little dab will do ya'. Let's get a wide angle view.

The image is unrelated to this topic but illustrates their point. Perhaps it has more to do with roughening up the surface thereby capturing more light.

We must find this man and stop him
It's probably Florida Man.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

ALW.

Indeed.

Wonder how long it takes the freshly disturbed lunar soil to bleach out and start reflecting again.

I'm going to hang my bleached white ass out there and [again] suggest it is more the disruption of the soil than the color of it. Disrupted soil has far [orders of magnitude] more surface area in which to capture light than smooth flat soil.

So, if we disrupt enough soil on the Moon it could be a garden spot?
