Like other answers, the issue is what sort of air handling system could be installed to exchange the air, ventilate and reduce the moisture content and for that matter, keep the hall at some sort of constant temperature? With the sort of technologies available in the 1940's this would be quite an intricate problem. A massive air handling unit could possibly ...

With 1960 era technology, you are probably looking at the cutting edge as far as space suits and moon suits are concerned. Rechargeable battery technology was in its infancy, materials science had no previous experience with regolith when designing seals and material for the outer shell, and most of the other issues were being solved essentially from scratch....

The PLSS had silver-zinc batteries, yet I believe that the batteries were exchanged rather than recharged. Are there reasons not to recharge them on Luna? Or am I mixing battery technologies?
