Abstract

University of Hawaii scientists have concluded from studies of Hawaii's volcanic activity that, in the high vacuum on the moon's surface, vapors from lava flows would present a lethal hazard.

The studies were headed by John J. Naughton, professor of chemistry and senior researcher in the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics.
