How safe would it be to visit the Moon?

    Well, no one who has ever visited the Moon so far has ever died there, so you can probably figure it would be reasonably safe with the proper equipment, right?

    It is not a safe trip to take, but it is very possible to do. One of the problems when on the moon is the dust. That stuff gets in everything, including the joints in your spacesuit, and wears them out quickly. That is one of the reasons it is foolhardy to think in terms of a permanent base on the moon with current technologies. Better to put it on a platform at one of the LaGrangian points.

    Quite safe. The crime-rate is very low.

    Transfer to, and temporary visits to the Earth's Moon have never been safe, and never will be!

    With all the right equipment. pretty safe

    No pending disasters like Tornadoes or Tidal Waves

    Not much traffic either

    But watch out for Psychotic Reindeer when they get spaced out on Goofballs !!

    All 12 that tried it survived if that is what you mean. 3 had a very close call that is hard to fathom they survived.

    (avoid full moons)

    There is risk visiting your neighbor across the street, but looking both ways first has prevented fatalities.

    Leaving Earth is dangerous. Aircraft crash all the time.

    Leaving the atmosphere is at least 10X as dangerous. Virgin Galactic and others spending millions to make it safe enough to have a few minutes up in a vacuum and weightless with live passengers.

    Getting to orbit uses huge rockets costing hundreds of millions and is at least 10X again more dangerous. Spending any time in space station costs more tens of millions and could mean death quickly by many factors. Just getting back to Earth safely is a real challenge.

    Leaving Earth area and orbiting the Moon costs billions, is another 100X as dangerous--you will be gone almost a week and sun storm radiation could kill, equipment could fail, and entering Earth atmosphere will be at tremendous speed.

    Landing on moon and walking around for a few minutes is another 10X as dangerous, and costs almost double as just orbiting. Getting back to command ship alive is not very easy at all.

    And in all the trips, the surroundings are about being stuck in front seat of a large sedan, or in a station that is like a fair sized apartment. In a space suit, you are packed like a sardine. And in all those places, nothing smells very good at all, you might be nauseous, and the food is not great. I can't imagine how much fun it isn't to use the toilet, even if there is one.

    Source(s): Been watching space progress since early 1958. Being in cockpit of a Navy F4 fighter/bomber and doing carrier landings 51 years ago was more than dangerous enough for me. Met and talked with astronauts when they visited planetariums where I worked.

    With proper engineering quite safe.
