Chinese scientists have discovered water in a sample of lunar soil delivered to Earth by the automatic interplanetary station Chang'e-5. This is stated in an article in the scientific journal Science Advances.
According to the researchers, the lunar soil sample contains 120 ppm of water, mostly due to the solar wind.
Earlier, experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) proposed to study the moon using a saucer levitating above its surface. Scientists have developed a lunar rover in the form of a disk, which does not have wheels.
The vehicle sent to the moon will rise above the surface due to the force of electrical repulsion that occurs due to the direct action of the sun on the natural satellite of the earth. Scientists noted that the new lunar rover has no wheels, that is, the probability of its breakdown is extremely small.
