Why everyone suddenly wants to land on the moon

Published

on

In a historic feat of exploration, India’s space agency successfully landed a spacecraft on the moon’s enigmatic south pole.

This achievement is poised to elevate India’s stature in the global space race while shedding light on the presence of lunar ice, a potential game-changer for future lunar colonization, mining ventures, and missions to Mars.

Moon Missions: A Global Endeavor

India’s eagerly anticipated moon mission, Chandrayaan-3, is slated for launch on July 14, 2023. Joining an exclusive club, which includes the Soviet Union, the United States, and China, India has now achieved a soft landing on the lunar surface.

The quest to find water on the moon traces its roots back to the 1960s, prior to the Apollo missions. Early lunar samples retrieved by Apollo crews seemed arid, dashing hopes of lunar water. However, in 2008, Brown University researchers reevaluated these samples and detected hydrogen in tiny volcanic glass beads. A year later, a NASA instrument aboard India’s Chandrayaan-1 probe confirmed the presence of water on the moon’s surface. Subsequently, in 2009, another NASA mission, targeting the moon’s south pole, uncovered ice beneath the lunar surface. The 1998 Lunar Prospector mission had previously suggested that the highest ice concentration was within shadowed craters at the south pole.

Water’s Significance on the Moon

The discovery of water on the moon has profound implications. Lunar ice could offer insights into lunar volcanic activity, the materials delivered to Earth by comets and asteroids, and the origin of Earth’s oceans. Moreover, if found in sufficient quantities, lunar water could serve as a crucial resource for future lunar exploration, from drinking water for astronauts to cooling equipment. It can also be converted into hydrogen for fuel and oxygen for breathing, bolstering missions to Mars and supporting lunar mining activities.

The Lunar Landscape

While the moon’s south pole is an enticing destination, it presents unique challenges. Unlike previous missions that primarily targeted the equatorial regions, the south pole is riddled with craters and deep trenches. Nevertheless, both the United States and China have set their sights on this intriguing lunar terrain.

In conclusion, the successful landing of India’s spacecraft at the moon’s south pole marks a significant milestone in lunar exploration. The discovery of lunar water holds the promise of transforming our understanding of the moon and fueling ambitions for humanity’s continued journey into space, with the moon as a potential stepping stone to the red planet and beyond. As nations and private entities engage in this cosmic race, the Artemis Accords, a framework for moon exploration and resource use, continue to shape international cooperation, albeit without the participation of China and Russia.

Why Australia is becoming the new home of the Hollywood blockbuster

Published

on

Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

The allure of Australia lies not only in its picturesque locations but also in its competitive financial incentives.

The government offers generous rebates and tax breaks to international productions, making it an attractive proposition for filmmakers looking to maximise their budgets.

Despite the recent intake of Hollywood productions down under such as ‘The Fall Guy’ and ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’, Aussie independents are still finding the space to carve their own creative path.

Rob Fantozzi joined the program to discuss the latest in Hollywood, and showcased his own upcoming project – ‘Omerta‘. #featured

American home prices are rising at faster pace now than in the last 20-years.

A recent analysis reveals a jaw dropping surge in the cost of American homes.

Since the start of 2020, U.S. home prices have surged 47% easily outstripping the gains seen in recent decades.

On top of that, home price growth so far this decade is on the verge of surpassing all the growth seen in the 2000s.

Many experts believe this decade’s housing market frenzy was ignited by a perfect storm — the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic triggering an unprecedented rush among buyers.

Tom Hutchens, the Executive Vice President of Production at Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions joins Veronica Dudo to discuss.
