Moon fascinating, perhaps because it is the only world besides Earth, that humans have set foot. We know many things about it, yet there are still many mysteries that surround.
The latest theory that comes to revolutionize the old concepts about the Moon was launched this week in Congress that is held annually in Germany, the University of Giessen. Joop Houtkooper, one of the scientists present at the event, claimed that the dark craters of the moon in our natural There are traces of microbial life. The researcher said that the moon rotates in such a way that its poles remain forever out of direct sunlight. Thus, in the craters in these areas is very likely that life on Earth or on Mars to be here after many asteroid impacts of the two planets.
Joop Houtkooper said that microbial life form could survive in the dark craters of the moon, where the average temperature of – 248.16 degrees Celsius, even for billions of years. According to the scientist, it is sufficient that a single meteor within which the bacteria were hitting the Moon for primitive life forms to be frozen very low temperatures. And the most interesting question raised by Joop Houtkooper reaction is related to possible lunar water microbes. There will, perhaps, the same track as on Earth?
Traces of microbial life such as water and ice will be the main targets of future American space missions.
