New research suggests that the Moon’s water may have originated from the Earth

uA new study by a team of researchers at the University of Alaska’s Institute of Geophysics in Fairbanks suggests the possibility that there is more water beneath the Moon’s surface than previously thought – and it is pointed out that this water may even have originated from Earth.

The theories most accepted by the scientific community to explain the existence of water in the Moon deal mainly with the effect of asteroids and solar winds, but in the case of this new hypothesis, it has been shown that oxygen and hydrogen ions may have “escaped” through the atmosphere. From the earth towards our natural satellite.

The data is important because NASA plans to establish a base at the Moon’s South Pole, the location where the Moon’s highest water content is believed to be.

“When NASA’s Artemis team plans to build a base at the Moon’s South Pole, terrestrial water ions could be used in a system to sustain the lives of astronauts.” “It’s like the Moon in the shower – a shower of water ions that returns to Earth and falls on the surface of the Moon.”
