Latest Lunar soil Stories
Roughly four decades after mysteriously disappearing, vials of Moon dust collected by Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin have been discovered at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California.
NASA scientists describe using new calculations just how odd the surface of the moon really is, saying dust on the moon can actually leap from the dark side, to the light sight.
Three-dimensional printing is growing rampantly and the European Space Agency has decided to utilize the up-and-coming technology to build a base on the moon using lunar soil.
NASA engineers are working on a prototype lunar soil excavator that comes equipped with sturdy digging equipment, can take on a wide array of different shapes to complete its various tasks, and is reliable enough to operate on a daily basis for several years.
Engineers at NASA’s Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif., have installed the third and final science instrument that will fly onboard NASA's Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE).
Water molecules discovered in soil samples collected from the moon could have indirectly originated from the sun, claim the authors of a new study published Sunday in the journal Nature Geoscience.
Astronomers suggest that water may have been delivered to Vesta through a build-up of small particles during an epoch when the Solar System was rich in dust.
A study of "lunar swirls" on the moon may eventually lead to new developments in engineering to help protect astronauts in space.
A stunning discovery by QUT soil scientist Marek Zbik of nano particles inside bubbles of glass in lunar soil could solve the mystery of why the moon's surface topsoil has many unusual properties.
