Liquid water on the surface of the moon has been found to ‘hop’ around various cold spots on the lunar surface due to a complex and intricate sequence of events.
Temperatures rise during the moon’s daytime and at lunar noon it is sufficiently warm enough to cause water to leave the soil – known as the regolith.
It then either bounces to the nearest cold location or rises into the atmosphere before being reabsorbed.
It was spotted by the Lyman Alpha Mapping Project (LAMP) on NASA‘s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO).
Scientists say this discovery could allow for a constant supply of water for planned long-term manned missions to the moon.
