One Large Leap
On Monday, scientists revealed that there is more lunar water on the moon than previously thought. By no means will NASA be launching plans to open an intergalactic water park anytime soon, but they have just discovered water molecules trapped within mineral grains on the surface of the moon and there could even be more water hidden in ice patches in the permanent shadows.
These findings contradict research that was initially released 11 years ago. Previous observations were troublesome as it became very difficult to distinguish water molecules and its molecular cousin, hydroxyl trapped between natural gasses and debris grains. Today´s new detection methods have solved this issue.
For drinking supply and fuel ingredient purposes, these recent discoveries have the potential of making space travel a whole lot easier.
For quite some time now, NASA has been planning a trip to send astronauts back to the Moon. Many people say that this trip will be just a small steppingstone towards the bigger goal of putting human life on Mars.
Who do you think will make it to Mars first? Elon Musk and SpaceX or NASA themselves?
