For the first time, water has been found on the moon’s north and south poles, according to research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Brown University researchers used images captured by NASA’s Moon Mineralogy Mapper to spot ice deposits in the darkest, coldest spots on the moon, hidden within crater crevices. The ice has been speculated to be ancient, as the temperatures there never reach higher than minus 250 degrees Fahrenheit and are in areas where the sun doesn’t reach. That the water is visible on the surface means it might extend to further below and could be a source for future expeditions.
