Moon Colony Woes

One of mankind’s enduring dreams has been to one day colonize our Moon. But although visiting our orbiting satellite in 1969 went fairly well, an actual colony on the Moon would face a myriad of problems. For starters, the absence of an atmosphere makes for some radical temperature changes, going from 240 degrees during the day to -280 at night. And imagine the influx of radiation because of no atmosphere. And one big problem–a Moon day lasts 29 Earth days! Now that would take some adjusting to. Join Jake Roper as he reveals some more Moon gems in this celestial edition of Vsauce3.
