Countdown to the Moon

1799 – Ejaz

“Did you know there is ice on the poles of the moon?”

“I didn’t!”

“The moon has a 1 degree tilt relative to the sun, and it has deep craters on the moon that have permanently shadowed areas that are colder than Pluto. Over billions of years comets and wet meteors have impacted the moon and water molecules have ended up in these regions and have been trapped.”

“Wow! I can’t believe I didn’t know that.”

“Well I don’t know who is playing in the super bowl, so we all have our own blind spots”

Within 1799 days we will have people walk on the moon again. And we will learn more about the water ice and how to extract it to help in our exploration efforts.
