Questo articolo sembra suggerire che portare telescopi astronomici sulla Luna possa non essere una buona idea: Dirt, Gravity, and Lunar-Based Telescopes: The Value Proposition for Astronomy. Dall’abstract:
The lunar surface has historically been considered an optimal site for a broad range of astronomical telescopes. That assumption, which has come to be somewhat reflexive, is critically examined in this paper and found to be poorly substantiated. The value of the lunar surface for astronomy may be broadly compelling only in comparison to terrestrial sites.
