Another great lecture ruined by the camera mans over whelming urge to get the speaker on camera. This person never attended college or university or would otherwise understand that most of the time you DO NOT look a the lecturer but are furiously writing down notes from the over head / slide projector. Keep ignorant boobs away from cameras on educational subjects. :P

Jennifer you say starting at 4:14 that "the surface temperature [of the moon] changes a lot" and that "you can jump, like, 200 to 300 degrees temperature from the dark area to the light...where the sun is shining and where it is not". I noticed that in the Apollo Moon landing photos, an astronauht goes from the sunlit area to the unlit area behind the lunar module. How long does it take for an area once covered in sunlight but then shadowed on the Moon to change its temperature? What was the temperature difference when the Apollo astronauts did this? Can you tell us about the control system that could regulate such a jump in temperature while maintaining a safe even temperature for a human being? I find surviving the conditions on the Moon to be more fascinating than actually having landed there. Thank you for your reply.

I like the moon. But not as much as a spoon, 'cause that's more use for eating soup.

Excellent talk - would have liked to see what she was pointing at, though.
