NASA says that just as the dust of the Earth causes problems to humans, the dust of the moon troubles astronauts. This was seen under the Apollo Mission.

NASA is Working on Ways to Measures Moon Dust: The US space agency NASA has once again planned to send humans to the moon. His plan is part of the Artemis Mission. Through this mission, NASA is trying to find a solution to the problems that had come up earlier during the Apollo Mission. The biggest problem that occurred during the Apollo mission was the dust on the lunar surface.
NASA also came to know that the dust of the moon is not at all like the dust on earth, which is found in homes all over the world. The dust of the Moon spreads dust everywhere, which has the ability to stick everywhere. As part of the Apollo mission, NASA created a special vacuum to clean this dust, which was placed in the astronaut’s spacesuit (NASA on MoonDust). At that time, there was so much trouble due to the dust of the moon that this particular vacuum was broken. This dust was not only fatal for the equipment like vacuum but was also disturbing the astronauts.
There is a problem on the moon as well
Now to eliminate this problem, now NASA will find out how much dust is present on the moon in the local atmosphere at one time. With this, the agency will also find out what improvements can be made on the earth as soon as these things are known. NASA says that just as the dust of the Earth causes problems to humans, the dust of the moon troubles astronauts. Under the Apollo mission, NASA found out that astronauts were having trouble breathing due to the dust of the moon, water was coming from the eyes and was coming off.
NextSTEP is the name of the program
NASA said that through this filtration system, dust particles can be removed to a large extent. But an air sensor is very important to know how the mitigation control is working there. Now in NASA’s Space Technologies for Exploration Partnership Program, the most attention is being given to the new air quality sensor. This program is known as NextSTEP. The purpose of the program is to measure the dust on the surface and the orbiting platform.
Better than the old tool
Denver Company of Colorado Lunar Outpost Inc. Has developed an air quality sensor, named Space Canary. Space canary is integrated into the environmental control system. It is better than the old equipment. The Space Canary has been rebranded as the Canary-S, it is also priced low, has wireless air quality and can be monitored on the Earth. Its sensors can measure various pollutants, including carbon monoxide, methane, sulfur dioxide, and organic compounds. Messages can be sent from the sensor to a secure cloud every minute, which will reach the Lunar based outpost web dashboard in the form of data. So that it can be reviewed and analyzed.
