    if we make a domestic Airport on Moon

    I think it will be more cost effective for Aeroplanes to take landing and take off from moon, due to low gravity.
    do you think that the output from the after burner like co2 hydro carbon, carbon monoxides may create hazards
    on Moon may be it will create different chemical compounds on Moon


    what do you think ??

    Gravity isn't the issue. The Moon does not have an appreciable atmosphere. Without an atmosphere, the aircraft engines cannot operate and the wings cannot generate lift.

    Thereís no atmosphere to provide lift, so aircraft arenít possible. Ballistic rockets or ground transport are the only methods.

    Also, I donít think an afterburner is used on rocket engines, because you are already accelerating the exhaust as fast as you can in the engine.

    And thinks like CO2 wonít matter on the moon, because there is no air anyway so you have to breathe from your own air supply...

    Speaking of which,

    Guess we'll have to go with dirigibles then.

    We just have to come up with something lighter than vacuum...

    Perhaps if it turns out that antimatter feels gravity the wrong way, then we can make antimatter dirigibles!

    I'm sure the people on board would have a blast!

    I got it!

    We'll use hot vacuum in our lighter than vacuum balloons!

    Hot vacuum HAS to lighter than cold vacuum...

    How would you make a dirigible, well, dirigible (steerable for those who don't speak baguette) on the moon? Don't say "thrusters" because if that is allowed, we can just make it a rocket and be done with it.

    Big stilts.

    Jeez, took me all of a second to come up with that! No wonder you're Earth bound!

    Afterburners rely on the fact that there is considerable oxygen available in a gas turbine engine's exhaust -- limits on materials mean that gas turbine combustion has about 3 times the stioichiometric ratio of oxygen.

    First, put a significant atmosphere on the Moon. Second, build a dirigible.

    I was rather hoping you were.
