Water was discovered on the moon. NASA specialists confirmed the find and are already planning further research.
NASA representatives interpret the presence of water on the Moon as an opportunity to start large-scale studies that may give sensational results.
According to research, ice is settled in the darkest and cold corners of the polar regions of the satellite. The discovery has become an important component of the initiation of the new flight of people to the moon for the first time in half a century. The presence of water will allow to satisfy the needs of living organisms, it is necessary for the production of rocket fuel and creating oxygen.
Sarah Noble, representing a group of researchers of the Moon, noted in his interview, which is at the moment it is not known whether the extraction of ice from the surface of the moon seems to be possible for its subsequent study and practical application. She also added that scientists do not have the idea of the exact amount of ice. Refinement of parts depends on the success of additional studies that special devices should do.
It is known that most of the frozen water is in the shadows of craters on the poles, where the temperature is always on -156 Celsius. In order to study the surface and experiments, it was proposed to build a lunar orbital space station in the satellite orbit. NASA stated that the power unit was planned to be launched in 2022.
