Artificial intelligence has infiltrated dark craters on the moon

Artificial intelligence penetrated dark craters on the Moon

They never get sunlight.

In some of the craters on the Moon, the sun's rays almost never penetrate. Therefore, they are very, very dark, Chronicle.info reports with reference to Channel 24.

But humanity is attracted by the unknown. To see the insides of these mysterious craters, artificial intelligence had to be used.

The Unknown Moon: White Spots in Total Darkness

There is no dark side of the Moon – there is a side that does not face the Earth. & Nbsp; But there are dark spots on the Moon – especially at the bottom of craters, where & nbsp; sunlight never gets & nbsp; (wherever the Moon nor rotated).

  • These zones of continuous darkness have been known to scientists for a long time, and have been of great interest to them just as long.
  • And not because there may be something hiding there terrible – oh no. & nbsp; Interest, actually, scientific.

Need water

The fact is that the lack of sunlight means a decrease in temperature.

  • That is, & nbsp; frozen substances & nbsp; are in this state: a) for a long time b) constantly.
  • Simply put, & nbsp; deep in the craters there may be water. & nbsp; And water is life.

Pay attention : & nbsp; Here we are not even talking about the search for life on the Moon, as about providing life for future astronauts who intend to spend more than a few hours on the Earth's satellite.

But there is a problem & # 8230;

The lack of sunlight means that it is extremely difficult to see, in fact, what is there at the bottom of the crater. & Nbsp; In 2009, NASA launched a special mission to study the lunar craters – LCROSS & nbsp; (Lunar CRater Observation and Sensing Satellite).

  • The mission was able, for example, to launch a probe into Cabeus crater.
  • And still found there & nbsp ; relatively large amount of water.

But these data are not enough for serious conclusions.

… Which came up with a non-standard solution

To collect new data, an interesting technique was developed at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research (MPS) in Germany. They used the artificial intelligence algorithm & # 171; U-net's hyper-efficient noise removal software & # 187; (HORUS).

This algorithm is very good at cleaning noise from images of the bottom of unlit craters, & nbsp; collected by various spacecraft. & nbsp; It also corrects other factors.

  • So, artificial intelligence processed more than 70 thousand images to work out this algorithm to almost ideal.
  • And only then began to study 17 always dark regions of the moon at the south pole .

But – so far to no avail (almost)

Unfortunately. & nbsp; HORUS did not reveal any direct evidence in the processed photos & nbsp; any direct evidence & nbsp; the presence of water or ice. & nbsp; However, this does not mean that you should stop looking for it – rather the opposite.

  • And the artificial intelligence, although it did not find water, did another good deed – wrote the relief of the studied dark areas of the moon.
  • Now the astronauts who get there will at least know where to go.
