Hidden Water on the Sunlit Surface of the Moon.


“We confirmed water on the sunlit surface of the Moon for the 1st time using @SOFIAtelescope,” NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine tweeted. The results published in the journal Nature Astronomy suggests that the water may be delivered by tiny meteorite impact, or formed by the interaction of energetic particles ejected from the Sun. The finding furthers the case that water is not limited to Moon`s cold shadowed regions and may be distributed across the lunar surface. “We don’t know yet if we can use it as a resource, but learning about water on the Moon is key for our #Artemis exploration plans,” Bridenstine said.

“Uranus and Neptune have long been thought to harbour gemstones. But Saturn and Jupiter were not thought to have suitable atmospheres. Baines and Delitsky analysed the latest temperature and pressure predictions for the planets’ interiors, as well as new data on how carbon behaves in different conditions. They concluded that stable crystals of diamond will “hail down over a huge region” of Saturn in particular.”
