TIL: They're still studying the moon rocks! Also, moon dust is not like sand or the dust we know - it rips and tears, with jagged edges.
@jnkay Huh. Interesting. It gives off the impression of being dusty like sand because of that footprint but whadda ya know right?
@mm In later Apollo missions, the astronauts reported that if they fell, the dust cut into their space suits. Unlike sand, which rolls around in the oceans, moon dust isn't completely round, so its edges aren't smooth.
