Water Released from Moon During Meteor Showers

Researchers from NASA and the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, report that streams of meteoroids striking the Moon infuse the thin lunar atmosphere with a short-lived water vapor.The findings will help scientists understand the history of lunar water — a potential resource for sustaining long term operations on the Moon and human exploration of deep space.

According to NASA, “The findings will help scientists understand the history of lunar water — a potential resource for sustaining long term operations on the Moon and human exploration of deep space.”

This breakthrough finding was revealed after analyzing the data collected through NASA’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE). To gather information about the Moon’s exosphere, LADEE reportedly orbited the moon from October 2013 to April 2014.
