The Russian professor also rejects the theory that the moon surface would be covered with volcanic ash and cosmic dust. According to him, on the lunar surface, there is a layer of grit and rock some centimeters thick.

MOSKOU (Rtr) — De maan is niet egaal van kleur, zoals sommige geleerden geloven, maar er komen rood, bruin, geel, groen, blauw en andere tinten voor. Aldus heelt prof. Nikolai Barabasjow, directeur van het astronomisch observatorium van Charkof, verklaard. De Russische professor verwerpt ook de theorie dat het maanoppervlak bedekt zou zijn met vulkanische as en kosmisch stof. Volgens hem ligt op het maanoppervlak een laag gruis van gesteente van enige centimeters dik.
