Global News published this video item, entitled “NASA finds definitive evidence of water on the moon’s surface” – below is their description.
The discovery of water on the moon’s sunlit surface by NASA’s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) came as a surprise, a NASA scientist said on Oct. 26, and has prompted questions about the history of the moon as well as other airless bodies in the solar system. “We weren’t guessing that water could survive in the sunlit part of the moon,” Paul Hertz, NASA’S Director of Astrophysics said. The findings suggest that water may be distributed across the surface of the moon, and not limited to it’s colder regions. In 2018, NASA scientists confirmed the presence of water on the moon’s surface – in hundreds of patches of ice deposited in the darkest and coldest reaches of its polar region. The water found in the sunlit region is far less concentrated than that found in the icy deposits on the lunar poles in 2018, and scientists will first try to mine the polar region for water, Hertz said. Scientists now want to expand their search across the entire earth-facing side of the moon to see if they can find more signs of water.
