The moon has more water in its soil than previously believed, according to two recent studies by researchers from China and the United States. The discovery could have significant implications for future space exploration, as it would provide a water source for astronauts and could be used to produce rocket fuel. The research also indicates that the moon’s water may be more widespread underground than originally thought, and could potentially be extracted by future missions. One of the studies used data from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, while the other used measurements from China’s Chang’e-4 lunar lander.
