The European space Agency has published new photos of the North pole of the moon. These pictures put scientists in a deadlock: they detail visible strange dark recesses filled with water in the frozen state.
Experts from the European space Agency (ESA) reflect on the fact that they represent a black craters on the moon's surface which are clearly visible in the photo of the North pole natural satellite of the Earth. These images were created by the lunar probe Smart-1. However, in order to better see the craters and their contents, experts combined nighttime and daytime shots.
1 of the versions of scientific workers is that the craters represent a deep crater, the bottom of which water may be frozen. Most surprisingly, another version of ESA experts simply do not exist. According to them, the same prints can stay on our satellite due to impact events - the fall of meteorites and comets.
How do you think scientists study lunar craters will help to learn more about the origin of the Solar system. The last few years in the world of science increasingly gaining prominence theory, according to which the Universe is able to be posted via meteorites, comets and other cosmic bodies.
Remember that the unit is Smart-1 was launched in early September 2003. While working on the orbit of the moon from 2004 to 2006 - the probe has done about 32 thousand photo small surface areas. After the mission he was intentionally broken on the surface of the moon.
