It appears as if it might be interesting to list all lunar dangers to humans and the possible protections and countermeasures against them.

There obviously aren't

the vacuum,
the solar wind,
CMEs and
the cosmic radiation

not only but the lunar dust has toxic components also according to the article "Tackling Moondust for Future Lunar Living" ( www.space.com/businesstechnology/080527 ... rview.html ):
Quote:
... the lunar dust that resembles fresh-fractured quartz, a highly toxic substance. Reduced gravity could keep dust particles suspended in the airways, which provides more time for the toxic dust to get deep into the lungs and reach the bloodstream
.

This toxicity I haven't read of before - it seems to be a new finding.
