The US space agency NASA has announced that it has received final evidence of the presence of water on the surface of the moon.
The discovery of molecular water on the moon will strengthen NASA’s hopes of building a space station on the moon, and it is hoped that astronauts will be able to make use of the moon’s natural resources.
The results of this research have been published in two research papers in the journal Nature Astronomy.
According to the report, the presence of water in the inner part of the moon (hidden from sunlight) was previously detected, but now scientists have found water molecules on the surface of the moon where the sunlight is present.
According to Dr. Casey Honey ball of the NASA Center in Maryland, about 1,000 kilograms of water was found in 12 thousand ounces (354 milliliters) or 12 ounces per square meter.
Jacob Bletcher, a NASA official, says researchers need to better understand the nature of the water resources on the moon right now.
It is believed that there have been signs of water presence on the moon in the past, but recent discoveries show that there is more water there than previously thought.
