Earthlings are now dreaming of living on the planet and naturally their first sight is on the moon but where is the water on the moon? Until now man has been believing this but now he has a superstition that he has been storing the water of the earth for billions of years as ice in the depths of his pit! Yes, researchers believe that there could be 840 cubic miles of water on the moon. Researchers at the University of Alaska (Care Banks) have suggested that the Moon pulls water molecules as it passes through the Earth’s magnetic field, and has been doing this for billions of years.
Astronomers previously suspected that it had accumulated water three and a half billion years ago through meteor showers, and that it had been filled with oxygen and hydrogen atoms from the solar wind, adding to that suspicion. Researchers say there could be 840 cubic miles of water beneath the lunar surface. Lake Huron in North America, the eighth largest in the world, is flooded. Prof. Gunther Kalateska states that the North and South Pole regions of the Moon seem to have the highest concentration of water.
NASA’s team plans to land humans on the moon’s south pole, where billions of years’ worth of water collected as particles from Earth could be used to sustain human life. Although the moon has been pumping water from the earth for billions of years, the researchers say that only one percent of the earth’s atmosphere has been formed, but most of the water on the moon appears to have come from meteor showers. The worst meteor shower on the moon occurred about three and a half billion years ago when the solar system was one billion years old.
The planets between the Earth and the Sun also had heavy meteor showers and the solar wind may have caused a huge amount of water to accumulate on the Moon. The water has frozen in the rock on the surface of the moon and the magnetic field around the moon may have worked to protect it from the intense hot sun, the study said. Once this water is extracted from the rock, it could be used to nurture future human settlements on the moon as well as to make fuel. In the polar region of the moon, the sun cannot penetrate deep into the pit, and temperatures can reach 18 degrees Fahrenheit below zero, but solar winds can break up ice. That’s what researchers say. Due to the Earth’s magnetic field, a magnetic field formed on the Moon protects the Moon from the rain of charged solar particles.
