(ORDO NEWS) — The moon has no atmosphere to control temperature. That is why the surface of the satellite is too hot and water of any kind evaporates quickly.
But nevertheless, with the help of a special study, scientists were able to establish that water can be present on the day side even at very high temperatures. Reported by Sciencealert.
About 10 years ago, a spacecraft discovered the possible presence of water on a satellite. It was finally possible to confirm this only last year. NASA astrophysicist Bjorn Davidsson told about it.
At first glance, all this seems to be fiction. If we assume that water does not move along the surface of the moon, but is protected by something like glass or stone, then everything becomes quite logical.
At the same time, a study conducted by experts in 2009 showed that the amount of water at different times of the day also differs. This suggests that some of the water is still moving.
In the same study, photographs were used that were obtained using the Apollo mission. Experts have noticed that due to irregularities on the surface of the moon, shadows appear, which allow it to move without completely evaporating. It is worth noting that similar assumptions have already been made earlier.
