A new study on moon says that ice deposits on its south pole may not be all from the same time thereby inferring that the source of ice might not be one, but multiple instead.
This new information is important for the future human exploration.
The new study was published in the journal Icarus. It said, “While a majority of those deposits are likely to be billion years old, some may be much more recent.”
Ariel Deutsch, a graduate student at Brown University, US, said that the age of ice deposits will influence both basic science and explorers, who may want to use that ice for fuel and other purposes.
