  1. Moondust is suspected to be bad for human health. The Daily Mail reports that 100% of the astronauts from the Apollo missions reported associated respiratory problems.

  2. Elon Musk says he will put 4G cell towers on the moon in 2019. Teaming up with Vodafone, Nokia, and Audi, they plan to install the towers for improved cell coverage on Earth.

  3. There is a modern-day “race” to put a man on the moon underway between China and the US. Last December, Trump directed NASA to return to the moon before going on to Mars. NBC reported that he gave no timeline. China, however, has specified 2036 as their goal for a manned lunar landing.https://www.nbcnews.com/mach/science/trump-directs-nasa-return-moon-aiming-mars-ncna828721 https://gbtimes.com/china-land-astronauts-moon-2036-senior-official-says
