    Lasers Could Lead Search for Water on Earth’s Moon

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    There are craters in the moon’s south pole that have remained dark for billions of years, but scientists have found evidence that the region may contain water. NASA has awarded nearly $1 million to eight university teams to develop methods to search for, and eventually extract, water from these permanently shadowed regions.

    One research team, led by the Colorado School of Mines in partnership with the University of Arizona, is combining laser power with femtosats — tiny, disposable satellites — to search for water on Earth’s moon.

    NASA selected eight university teams, including a joint team of researchers from the Colorado School of Mines and the University of Arizona, to develop technology to support…
