"Soil sample. That were collected by astronauts on the Apollo mission suggested the moon lacks water except for the poles. But a new study that just came out indicates that our moon isn't completely bone dry. It turns out that impacts of small meteoroid 's have hit the moon and propels dust up and in this dust Thurs water droplets in the atmosphere where Nastase lady the lunar atmosphere, dust, environment explorer, the LA D E spacecraft scoop them up and did some rations in the team that studied this data found that evidence of water was released twenty nine times between October twenty thirteen in April of twenty fourteen in their analysis shows that the water is hidden below a layer of about eight centimeters of soil, but the water concentrations are no more than zero point zero five percent. And that subsoil could never be fertile. It's still drier than the driest desert on earth. Dana Hurley from Johns Hopkins University applied physics laboratory in laurel Maryland, the team said the moon is being pelted by tiny dust particles every day and every once in a while, the moon flies through meteoroid streams when that bombardment is most intense, the occasional detect traces of water and these detections Kurd at the same time. The moon is passing through these streams in he said that made us think we're witnessing water being released by the meteoroid 's. So NASA astronauts won't be able to sustain themselves with the water on the moon. But it does show that there's actually water under the surface this small amount that the moon has right now while it's getting shutout into space, basically, and it could be losing as much as two hundred tons of water per year on the moon. So we could probably repurpose. Some of the water, but it's not enough to sustain the"
