some_beer_drinker: i'm no scientician, but don't you need an atmosphere for weather?

Fuggin Bizzy: In other news, China has an active lunar rover. I had no idea.
RoyBatty: Temperature swings on the moon in a vacuum (*) due to its tidal lock orbiting of the earth is now weather?(*) 3 x 10-15 barhttp://nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/planetary/factsheet/moonfact.html
The Green Intern: RoyBatty: Temperature swings on the moon in a vacuum (*) due to its tidal lock orbiting of the earth is now weather?(*) 3 x 10-15 barhttp://nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/planetary/factsheet/moonfact.htmlIt's not just that. Pretty sure it's also the fuzzy "atmosphere" of charged dust above the surface. Solar wind hits the surface, surface dust is hit and electrically charged by protons. Dust acquires positive charge, repels itself into a fine particulate cloud hanging above the surface, and you've got tons of stuff just begging for a negative electrical charge to adhere to and screw up anything that's there for too long.
TinyFist: This is retarded. Everyone knows the moon is fake.It's just some Hollywood trickery.Wake up, sheeple.
Fuggin Bizzy: In other news, China has had an active lunar rover. I had no idea.Also: regolith. It's not weather, but it's pretty hard on machinery, so it seems related.
Slutter McGee: They must have been close to discovering America's great moon hoax.Slutter McGee
WelldeadLink: Fuggin Bizzy: In other news, China has an active lunar rover. I had no idea.Not any more, they don't.
Loren: The temperature swings are nasty for hardware on the moon.
TV's Vinnie: The Moon DOES have it's own freaky weather. During a Lunar sunset, there's a static charge that builds up on the surface and lifts a crapload of tiny lunar dust particles to about three feet off the ground. This phenomena was observed back in the 60's by our Surveyor landers.[astrobob.areavoices.com image 500x367] [www.thelivingmoon.com image 235x235][plasma.colorado.edu image 575x164]
