Nasa Makes Incredible Discovery on the Moon

Water has been definitively found on the Moon, Nasa has said, and there are a set of “water traps” that could hold it stably.

The research suggests that water could be distributed right across the lunar surface, not just trapped in the cold, shadowed parts of the Moon. Water on the moon is more common than scientists thought, with pockets of ice hiding in shadowy regions of “eternal darkness,” some as small as a penny, new studies by the American Space Agency Nasa reveals.

The discovery is a major breakthrough in the mission to explore the rest of the solar system, as well as giving a better understanding of the lunar surface. It also raises new questions about how exactly the water got there, and how it is able to survive the harsh conditions on the Moon.

Scientists have been finding signs of water on the moon since 2009 and, in 2018, confirmed the presence of water ice on the lunar surface. Now, researchers in two new studies have not only further confirmed the presence of water on the moon, but also found that the lunar surface could be harbouring plentiful patches of secret ice in “cold traps,” regions of permanently shadowed spots on the moon.
