While the presence of water on the Moon had already been confirmed by orbital observations and analysis of samples, a measurement Besides Now added to the list of evidence. It will remain to specify the exact nature and origin of this water.
there is water on, There are some who still doubt it today, as evidenced by orbital observations and analysis of samples. At the end of 2020, also confirmed the presence of of water (H20) on the surface of our satellite. still no solution Besides It was not possible till now. But we must speak in the past because it has happened now. thanks to’ ,
In December 2020, it was, north of the ocean , on one of The youngest – the site is still about two billion years old – from our satellite. With the main objective of taking samples and bringing them back to Earth. But before he had time to speak his mind Lunar Minerals (LMS) on the surrounding regolith.
Valuable result, but to be specified
It is the instrument that made it possible to determine the water content of rocks located in the lander’s field of vision. Using spectral reflectance measurements, the researchers were able to calculate that the regolith in some regions may contain as much as 120 parts per million (ppm) of water – such as hydroxyl (OH) or, Whereas one rock they also analyzed had a little more in it. Around 180 ppm.

Researchers show thatThe water required for manufacturing there can be brought by , rock, it may well come from a unit old and being thrown there. Its relatively high water content suggests a source hidden beneath the surface. And if the analysis OH and H. do not make it possible to discriminate2Hey, they remain consistent with the initial analysis of the samples reported by ,
