Contamination Man or Moon?
(Reprinted from the Albany Democrat Herald!
Already the U. S. pure air and water forces are begin
ning to worry about the danger of man's polluting the moon
as he has the earth.
Of course Spacemen Nell A. Armstrong and Edwin F. Al
drin, Jr., discarded their two special space suits, boots, gloves
and tools they used in gathering up samples of moon terra
firma and exuded, according to the estimate of Alton Blakes
lee, AP science editor, more than 300,000 germs during their
sojurn on the moon.
Left behind also was an American flag, supported by a
frame which served In lieu of wind to extend the flag out
ward from its staff; a seismograph and a television camera.
Neither these gifts to the moon nor the vehicle which brought
them had been sterilized, so admittedly there is a remote pos
sibility that the earth envoys have spawned a rash of mi
crobes on the moon, but that Is too remote to justify a cam
paign against further visits to earth's satellite. And it will
be noted the moon was not one whit paler nor sicklier look
ing after than before the Junar module landed.
If the abandoned accoutrements of Armstrong and Al
drin represent the maximum of earth materials left on the
moon, there Is little danger that the lunar orb will become
visibly a garbage dump even though none of the discard
will be oxidized.
And, for that reason, It is extremely unlikely that early
bacteria will find the moon a benign host. All life on earth
Is geared to survival only In the gasses that constitute the
earth's atmosphere, and to earth's temperatures. Since the
moon has no discernible atmosphere to shield Its surface from
extremes of the sun's heat by day or to retain warmth by
night to temper frigidity, It Is pretty well defended against
intrusion of bugs from lunar landing devices. In short, the
moon Is pretty well sterilized against any earthly living thing.
On the other hand, there is also a remote possibility that
the moon may harbor some microbes of its own. That is
why the rocks and other ground samples brought to the earth
by the moon visitors are being kept sealed until they can
be Inspected and analyzed without posing danger of contam
inating humans, and why the astronauts are being consigned
to quarantine on their return.
You see, while there Is probably no one on the moon to
catch diseases, there are living things on earth that might
be destroyed by moon germs thriving under earth conditions
without meeting natural counter-bacteria.
These precautions will be necessary at least until it is
established there is no life of any kind on the moon.
Genesis -- Last Chapter
In the end,
There was Earth, and It was with form and beauty.
And man dwelt upon the lands of the Earth, the meadows
And he said, "Let us build our dwellings in this place of
And he built cities and covered the Earth with concrete and
And the meadows were gone.
And man said, "It is good."
On the second day, man looked upon the waters of the Earth.
And man said, "Let us put our wastes in the waters that the
dirt will be washed away."
And man did.
And the waters became polluted and foul In their smell.
And man said, "It Is good."
On the third day, man looked upon the forests of the Earth
and saw they were beautiful. And man said, "Let us cut
the timber for our homes and grind the wood for our use."
And man did.
And the lands became barren and the trees were gone.
And man said, "It is good."
On the fourth day, man saw that animals were in abundance
and ran In the fields and played in the sun. And man said,
"Let us cage these animals for our amusement and kill them
for our sport."
And man did. And there were no more animals on the face
of the Earth. And man said, "It is good."
On the fifth day, man breathed the air of the Earth. And
man said, "Let us dispose of our wastes into the air for winds
shall blow them away." And man did. And the air became
filled with the smoke and the fumes could not be blown
away. And the air became heavy with dust and choked and
burned. And man said, "It is good."
On the sixth day man saw himself; and seeing the many
languages and tongues, he feared and hated. And man said,
"Let us build great machines and destroy these lest they
destroy us." And man built great machines and the Earth
was fired with the rage of great wars. And man said, "It
On the Seventh day man rested from his labors and the
Earth was still for man no longer dwelt upon the earth.
