Why is the atmospheric pressure on moon double than that of the Earth?

Asked by nkhandei.rkl 20th May 2017, 11:53 AM
Answered by Expert
Moon does not have any atmosphere of its own. So, technically speaking there is no atmospheric pressure possible on the Moon. The only little atmosphere that the Moon possesses is because of the gases coming out of its surface. The pressure due to this atmosphere is negligible as compared to that of the Earth. Hence, there is no possibility of the pressure being double.
Kindly check the reference that mentions this possibility. If you can provide any additional data supporting this statement then we would be happy to assist you further with this data.
