Greater Ice on Moon – ISRO Study

A recent ISRO study has highlighted significant findings of increased subsurface ice on the Moon, especially in the polar craters, revealing that these subsurface deposits are larger than those on the surface at both poles. This discovery is crucial for future lunar missions and human colonization efforts, as extracting this ice could support sustainable lunar exploration. The study utilized a variety of instruments from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, pointing to volcanic activities from the Moon’s Imbrian period as a primary source. This enhances ISRO’s plans for in-situ resource utilization, which includes using lunar ice for rocket propellant and setting up a sustainable habitat on the Moon.
