Nasa's long-term goal of establishing a permanent, crewed base on the moon has been bolstered by the revelation there are large quantities of water locked in its soil.



Nasa's plans to establish a human outpost on the moon have received a surprise boost following the discovery of large amounts of water on its surface.

Three spacecraft detected a thin sheen of water locked up in the first few millimetres of lunar soil that could be extracted and used to sustain astronauts on expeditions to our nearest celestial neighbour.

Instruments aboard the spacecraft suggest that a cubic metre of soil on the lunar surface could hold around a litre of water.

The discovery of water on the moon will bolster Nasa's long-term goal of establishing a permanently crewed outpost there. The space agency is developing a new generation of rockets and crew capsules capable of reaching the moon which are due to fly within five years of the space shuttle fleet being retired next year.

Next month, Nasa will intentionally crash a probe called LCROSS (Lunar Crater Observation Sensing Satellite Mission) into the Cabeus A crater near the lunar south pole, in the hope of finding signs of water in the shower of debris it produces.

I dont know why newspapers and media put different information but According to my sources a Professor at the University of Tenesse said that there was so small amount of water that they would get hardly one teaspoon of water if we pressure up a kg of the moon soil and also that Scientist cautioned the reporters that by water they donot mean flowing lakes or Occean

Well, that is something we will have to look to Administrator. The media have been creating a lot of fuss about this.

Anyways, more and more updates have been coming our way, thanks to all those bloggers and reporters out there.

Water on the Moon…? Yup. It’s real.

Thanks
