NASA Discovers Water on Sunlit Surface of Moon

by Leslie Gabriel November 07, 2020

NASA's Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) has affirmed, unexpectedly, water on the sunlit surface of the Moon. This revelation shows that water might be distributed all over the lunar surface, and not restricted to cool, shadowy spots.

SOFIA has distinguished water particles (H2O) in Clavius Crater, perhaps the biggest crater obvious from Earth, situated on the Moon's southern half of the globe. Past perceptions of the Moon's surface recognized hydrogen, however couldn't recognize water and its nearby family member, hydroxyl (OH). Information from this area shows water in concentrations of 100 to 412 parts per million – identical to a 12-ounce container of water – caught in a cubic meter of soil spread over the lunar surface. The reported results are in the most recent issue of Nature Astronomy

Enjoy swimming in the clearest, cleanest, softest water imaginable, without the unpleasant smell or taste of chlorine! Reduce the need for chlorine by up to 85%. With our Blue Sea Solar Pool Ionizer Water Purifier System, a low-maintenance pool purification system you and your family will enjoy swimming in amazingly pure water without all the negatives associated with chemically treated pool water.

“We had indications that H2O – the familiar water we know – might be present on the sunlit side of the Moon,” said Paul Hertz, director of the Astrophysics Division in the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “Now we know it is there. This discovery challenges our understanding of the lunar surface and raises intriguing questions about resources relevant for deep space exploration.”

In comparison, the Sahara Desert has multiple times the water than what SOFIA recognized in the lunar soil. Regardless of the modest quantities, the disclosure brings up new issues about how water is made and how it continues on the cruel, airless lunar surface.

Water is a valuable resource in deep space and a vital element of life. Regardless of whether the water SOFIA discovered is effectively available for use is to be resolved.

Under NASA's Artemis program, the office is anxious to become familiar with everything it can about the presence of water on the Moon ahead sending people to the lunar surface in 2024 and setting up a supportable human presence on the Moon before the decade's over.
