Re: (TFT) Mars - Plants get too hot on Luna.

Quoting Denis DesHarnais <denisdesharnais@gmail.com>:
I wonder if the roast/freeze equation on the moon could be altered if a
colony could be built in the permanent "twilight zone" along the day/night
hemisphere boundary - maybe in the KREEP-rich Oceanus Procellarum, or maybe

Sorry, but the moon doesn't have a permanent twilight zone. Because it (mostly) keeps the same face toward Earth, it has a day with respect to the sun. That's part of the problem, right? With a month-long day, plants are either in the sun for days at a time, or dark for days at a time. Not so good for terrestrial flora.
