Scientists have for the first time found the frozen water on the Moon


Scientists have confirmed existence of glaciers on poles of the Moon. The frozen water is in a shadow of craters where sunlight practically doesn't get. Scientists for the first time managed to find glaciers on the surface of the Moon. Experts have found solid water on the southern and northern poles of the terrestrial satellite, NASA reports. Scientists have confirmed existence of glaciers on poles of the Moon. The frozen water is in a shadow of craters where sunlight practically doesn't get. The southern and northern poles – the coldest sites of the Moon, temperature-250 degrees Fahrenheit (-156.67 degrees Celsius) don't exceed there. On the South Pole the frozen water is directly in craters, and on northern – is scattered more widely. The team of scientists from the University of Hawaii, Brown University and one of the main offices of NASA - the Research center of Ames in Silicon Valley has analysed the data obtained thanks to a spectrometer of M3 which was started on the surface of the Moon by the Chandrayaan-1 ship in the 2008th year. Experts have analysed data on the reflecting properties of substances on the surface of the Moon and about ways of absorption of infrared light by them. By means of M3 scientists could distinguish liquid water, steam and solid ice. NASA has reported that the research of the nature of ice and its interaction with the lunar environment will become one of priorities of department. Specialists of NASA hope that at enough the ice found on the surface of the Moon he can be used as a resource for future expeditions. Earlier the group of astrobiologists of Washington State University has declared probable existence of life on the Moon. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
