Chang’e-5 lunar samples suggest water on moon kept in glass beads

Scientists have found water inside glass beads on the moon, which were scattered by tiny meteorites. The discovery was made by analyzing lunar soil brought back by China’s Chang’e-5 spacecraft. The study, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, found that the glass beads could be a prime water reservoir candidate, able to drive the lunar surface water cycle. The water content in the glass beads is equivalent to half a kilogram of water inside a tonne of impacting glass beads, according to the Science and Technology Daily. The study suggests that the water could be used for future lunar exploration.
