More Ice On The Moon

NASA has learned that there is more water on the Moon, thanks to information gathered by India’s Chandrayaan-1 lunar spacecraft. These new pockets of water-ice have been located on the north pole of the Moon in 40 small craters.

According to BBC News, these latest results shows that there are other compounds mixed with the water, these include hydrocarbons. This information was gathered by the LCROSS mission, which was then shown at a planetary science conference held in Texas.

The craters had an ice range from 1 to 9 miles in diameter; the amount of ice contained depends on how deep the actual crater is. However, NASA agrees that the ice has to be more than a couple of meters thick for it to be seen by Chandrayaan-1.

According to Dr Paul Spudis, a lecture at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston has said that there has to be around 600 million metric tones of water-ice. For more details on this visit BBC News.
