Astronauts may be able to drink water from volcanoes on the moon

volcanoes may have deposited sheets of ice on Lunar surface, according to new research

New research from the University of Colorado Boulder shows that volcanoes may have deposited sheets of ice on the surface of the moon up to hundreds of feet thick

The discovery could have major benefits for astronauts as they will require water to drink and for rocket fuel

The research, published in the peer-reviewed Planetary Science Journal, used computer simulations to simulate the lunar surface conditions before life on Earth

It found that volcanoes spewed water vapor that formed ice on the moon, which still be in lunar craters

The study adds to increasing evidence that there may be more water on the moon than previously believed.
