    Ice found on moon

    Ice found on moon

    This is a great find. Water on the moon makes a human presence much easier.

    Astronomers have found patches of frost scattered around the moonís north and south poles which could one day provide a source of water for human visitors.

    The scientists spotted the telltale signature of frozen water in infrared measurements taken by Nasaís moon mineralogy mapper, an instrument that flew on Indiaís Chandrayaan-1 mission to the moon a decade ago.


    The freshly-analysed data show that water ice lurks on the ground in a number of spots near the moonís polar regions that are permanently in shade and so sheltered from the heat of the sunís rays.


    Most of the ice was found near the moonís south pole around a cluster of craters named after scientists and explorers, including Haworth, Shoemaker, Sverdrup and Shackleton. In the north, the patches of ice appeared to be more isolated, according to Shuai Li at the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and Planetology in Honolulu.


    Follow-up measurements of the ice patches found that they tended to form where the surface temperature never crept above -163C, but temperature alone was not enough to guarantee frozen water: only 3.5% of the shadowy areas the scientists checked for water revealed notable signs of ice.

    Or maybe Neil Armstrong tossed the remains of his rum and coke out the window before lift off from the moon??

    Given that I have Depression, I will find depressive insights into everything.

    Ice on the Moon will help Humans colonize the Solar System in the next century. It will be a step toward a Civilization of Universal Effluence and Well Being.

    The sad part is that it is still beyond our lifetime.

    Ice has even been found on Mercury. That would make it possible to colonize Mercury. The abundance of Solar energy would be an asset rather then a problem.

    But it will happen in the next century.

    The technology to colonize Solar System existed since 1970s. The effort needed to do so was and is beyond that which Societies are willing to invest. The cost would be trillions of modern dollars.
