"to wear when they're inside lunar spacecrafts"

So why are these orange suits pressurised inside a spacecraft? Are they planning to need pressure suits during normal operation or just for emergencies?

I can see the helmets and gloves seem to be attached with some kind or sealed connections but not those boots. Just looks like the way my ski trouser legs hang over the tops of my boots. Am I missing something?

Re: Power Line Communication

"It was back in saarf-east London that my smart meter sent half-hourly updates over the air to Hell HQ."

And why exactly do they need half hourly readings for sending me a monthly bill?

If they want to offer variable tariffs they can read an aggregated figure for each of the tariff bands at the end of the month. A bit like my economy 7 meter provides a monthly figure for both night and day usage. They don't need to know that I was cooking my dinner between 7:00 pm and 7:30 pm on Tuesday.
