New Delhi (EMS). Chandrayaan-1 had already given evidence of the presence of water on the Moon, but now American scientists have revealed that water has not reached the Moon from anywhere else but from the Earth. . In fact, for the future human expedition to the Moon, it is very important to have information about where and in what form and quantity water is present there. Apart from this, what is the source of water there i.e. how did the water come there. Was it formed on the Moon itself by some old processes or is it still happening? In 2008, India’s Chandrayaan 1 had revealed that water on the south pole of the Moon is in the form of ice.
Now the American study has revealed from the same data that this water has reached there because of the plasma sheet of the Earth. Work is going on rapidly on the effort to send humans to the Moon. The search for water on the Moon is going on in full swing under NASA’s Artemis mission. Therefore, a lot of research work is being done on the Moon in America. In a new study, researchers have revealed that high-energy electrons from Earth’s plasma sheet greatly influence the Moon’s weather.
Researchers say that this process of Earth is playing a big role in the process of formation of water on the Moon. This connection can shed a lot of light on the existence of icy water in areas on the Moon where the Sun’s rays do not reach. This entire process occurs due to the interaction of the Earth’s magnetic field with the Sun’s solar wind. There is a magnetic field around the Earth called the magnetosphere which protects the Earth from harmful radiations coming from space. Solar winds, which are streams of charged particles coming from the Sun, affect this magnetosphere. This creates a long tail in the night side of the Earth called a magnetotail, which is actually a plasma sheet.
