Original title: British media: water ice near the two levels of the moon or water for human visitors
British media said astronomers discovered that a piece of icy territory around the north and south poles of the moon has spread. In the future they can supply water for human visitors.
According to the British "Guardian" website reported on August 20, scientists found traces of this frozen water in the infrared measurements obtained by the lunar mineral plotter from NASA. Ten years ago this moon-mineral plotter flew to the moon on the "Moon Ship 1" detector in India.
According to the report, the latest analysis of the data shows that there is a lot of water ice on the ground near the poles of the moon. The polar areas of the moon are in the dark all year round and there is no sunshine throughout the year.
According to the report, most of the ice was found around a series of craters at the south pole of the moon. These craters are named after scientists and explorers, including Howorth, Shoemaker, Svedrup and Shackleton. An expert from the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and Planetology said that ice is less common in the North Pole of the Moon.
According to the report, later measurements of these ice creams found that ice would probably form where the surface temperature never exceeded 163 degrees Celsius. But the temperature itself is not enough to guarantee the presence of frozen water: only 3.5% of the dark areas studied by scientists for the search for water show clear signs of ice.
According to a report published in the Journal of the National Academy of Sciences, these photographs are the first "direct and authoritative proof" of water ice on the surface of the moon. The authors write: "In the future lunar reconnaissance activities, this ice can be used as a local resource."
According to reports, in 2008 the Indian Space Agency launched the moonlager "Moon Ship No. 1". A year later, the lunar explorer found evidence of the presence of frozen water on the surface of the moon. It is assumed that the water on the moon exists in the form of water molecules that are combined with moon dust instead of in the form of ice on the surface of the moon.
Shortly after the discovery of India, NASA struck a spacecraft in the 100-kilometer-covered Kabeus crater. The kabeus crater is located in the permanent shadow zone of the south pole of the moon. This deliberate impact caused a lot of debris, and scientists can confirm the existence of water on the moon. (Compile / Zhu Jie)
