Scientists are studying the causes of rust on the surface of the moon. To their great puzzlement, there was no air or water on the moon, both of which were necessary for the formation of hematite (a kind of rust). < / P > < p > during the lunar surface survey in 2008, the orbiter discovered water ice on the lunar surface and drew various mineral maps. The team looked at data collected by the orbiter lunar mineralogy mapping instrument built by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The researchers say water interacts with rocks to produce a variety of minerals, and orbiter instruments detect the spectrum of light reflected from the surface and find that the composition of the moon’s poles is quite different from that of other places. < / P > < p > the moon’s surface is full of iron rich rocks, and the researchers were surprised to find that they matched the spectral characteristics of hematite. The surprise is that there should be no oxygen or liquid water on the moon to cause it to rust. Both the moon and the earth are constantly impacted by the solar wind, which is a stream of charged particles from the sun and bombards them with hydrogen. < / P > < p > the researchers intend to continue to study why there is rust on the moon, while researchers at the University of Hawaii have published a separate study outlining their belief that Earth’s oxygen causes rust to accumulate on the moon for billions of years. The University’s researchers speculate that lunar hematite is formed by the oxidation of oxygen in the earth’s upper atmosphere constantly blown to the moon’s surface by the solar wind. < p > < p > they believe that when the moon is in the earth’s magnetotail for billions of years, oxygen leaving the earth will be hit on the surface of the moon, and the location of hematite is closely related to the water content in high latitudes. This discovery is reshaping our understanding of the moon’s polar regions and how the earth may have played an important role in the evolution of the moon’s surface.
