So on the moon, for instance, if some hot air was released from a storage
vessel, it would just stay put, since there is no cold air to displace it.
Is that right? PHYSICS.
is no cold air to fall and displace it? PHYSICS.
Make it as simple as possible, but no simpler.

That sounds about right. It would spread out obviously, And eventually,
other forces than gravity would move it further and eventually
disperse it into space. I'll guarantee a hot air balloon, or even
a helium balloon, won't rise on the moon.
Someone once told me that light doesn't exist either. It's an illusion
caused by the lack of darkness. He also claimed to have invented a new
electronic component: the DED (Darkness Emitting Diode).
In that case, what if sound is only the absence of silence? How about
a device that emits silence? Would it work on someone snoring loudly?
You are basically right, the heat loss through the floor will
be mainly due to radiation, and foam isn't a very good barrier.
You should have a reflective foil in the floor to stop radiation.
Interesting. I don't see anything there about glass, and it looks like
radiation blocking additives only increased the foam resistance by 6%
(page 3) or 5% (page 32.) An 80% cell wall IR transmittance is less
important with more tiny cells in series, altho that raises the cost
