Ultimate guide to water on the Moon
And a popular science talk to top it off.
|Nov 24, 2020||1|
The various discoveries of water on the Moon have rekindled global interest in our cosmic neighbor. Interest in going back there, building habitats and more. But there seems to be quite some confusion on the nature of lunar water and related exploration ambitions by space organizations:
How was water discovered and what types?
How does it even exist there?
Where did it come from?
How much is there?
Why should we care for it?
How have we explored it thus far?
What challenges lie ahead?
What future missions are planned related to it?
Here’s my ultimate guide to water on the Moon answering all those questions, written for The Planetary Society.
Public talk on the Moon
I’ve been attending the excellent popular science talk series called Chai and Why? here in Mumbai, India since six years now. And recently I got to be their next speaker! 🤓
Thanks to Arnab Bhattacharya, a tireless science communicator and a scientist, for giving me this opportunity.
A Moon newsletter?
If you love the Moon like I do, I want to hear from you. I’m testing a Moon newsletter which covers developments in lunar exploration and the science every week. Here’s the latest issue.
Let me know what you think. If there’s enough interest, I’ll probably do this forever!
