Well, Sam, as embarrassed as I am to use the term, that's a paradigm
shift for me.

However, 'on the moon', it will either fall back, or escape [serious
'faster than a speeding bullet' trucking involved]. No 'hanging.'
Chaff (and any form of dust) will probably fall faster on the Moon than
on Earth. In an atmosphere, light particles are kept up by collisions
with air molecules. In a vacuum, they just fall straight down. So even
though the gravity is lower, dust falls faster.
