I'm new to this...but I have one question already. As someone who would
love nothing better than a shot at the moon, but want to know my risks if I
should actually get there, I wonder how safe I would be since
micrometeorites don't burn up in any atmosphere. Wouldn't they rip though
building materials?

Just wondering...
