Scientists have found frozen water on the moon

Ученые впервые нашли замерзшую воду на Луне

Scientists have confirmed the presence of glaciers at the poles of the moon. Frozen water is in shadow craters, where almost no sunlight.

Scientists have found the first glaciers on the surface of the moon. Hard water specialists found on the South and North poles of the earth’s satellite, according to NASA.

Scientists have confirmed the presence of glaciers at the poles of the moon. Frozen water is in shadow craters, where almost no sunlight. North and South poles the coldest areas of the moon, the temperature there does not exceed -250 degrees Fahrenheit (-156.67 degrees Celsius). At the South pole frozen water is located directly in the craters and on the North – are scattered more widely.

A team of scientists from the University of Hawaii, brown University and one of the main offices of NASA the Ames Research center in Silicon valley have analyzed the data obtained through the M3 spectrometer, which was launched to the moon on the ship Chandrayaan-1 in 2008-m to year. Experts analyzed the data about the reflecting properties of substances on the surface of the moon and how to absorb them infrared light. Using M3, the scientists were able to detect liquid water, vapour and solid ice.

NASA reported that the study of the nature of ice and its interaction with the lunar environment will be one of the priorities of the Department. NASA experts hope that when a sufficient number discovered on the moon’s surface ice can be used as a resource for future expeditions.

Earlier, a group of astrobiologists from the University of Washington announced the probable existence of life on the moon.
