    I might agree if female astronauts were naked and had no tampons or sanitary napkins. Otherwise I'm not sure what makes you think so; I don't see how zero gee would make a difference.

    The direction of the shadows gives it away. If that's the shadow of a man, he's walking over a field of little hummocks. If they are craters instead, that's not the sbadow of a man. Craters is what's on the moon, mostly.
