It’s common knowledge that mankind has caused the dramatic warming of the Earth — nobody besides conspiracy nuts and politicians looking for contributions from energy lobbyists actually bothers to dispute this anymore — but it looks like humans managed to extend our world-warming habits to the Moon as well. In a new research paper published in the Journal of Geophysical Research, scientists explain how the Apollo landings actually led to the Moon getting slightly hotter.
No, the astronauts that visited the Moon didn’t spew chemicals or anything of that sort, but they did travel across the lunar surface both by foot and by vehicle, and that alone was enough to make the moon warmer… but only after they left.
