India’s Chandrayaan-1 Helps Scientists Map Water on Moon

Tracing concentrations of water implanted in the lunar soil by the solar wind.

Scientists at the Brown University for the first time have created the first quantitative map of water and its chemical building blocks trapped in the uppermost portion of the Moon’s soil. According to scientists, the study may prove useful for lunar explorers.

Here, scientists used data from NASA’s Moon Mineralogy Mapper, which flew aboard India’s Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft. They then measured how much water is present on a global scale.

Study’s lead author, Shuai Li said, “The signature of water is present nearly everywhere on the lunar surface. It is not limited to the polar regions as previously reported. The amount of water increases toward the poles and does not show significant difference among distinct compositional terrains.”

I love this version of the Periodic Charts - if you are interested in where you come from start looking at C, N, P, H and O etc

Origin of the elements in the solar system. exploding stars! Here is how each element came into being.

Voyager: The Spacecraft

The twin Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft are exploring where nothing from Earth has flown before. Continuing their more-than-40-year journey since their 1977 launches, they each are much farther away from Earth and the Sun than Pluto.

The primary mission was the exploration of Jupiter and Saturn. After making a string of discoveries there – such as active volcanoes on Jupiter’s moon Io and intricacies of Saturn’s rings – the mission was extended. 

Voyager 2 went on to explore Uranus and Neptune, and is still the only spacecraft to have visited those outer planets. The adventurers’ current mission, the Voyager Interstellar Mission (VIM), will explore the outermost edge of the Sun’s domain. And beyond.

So odd looking.
