Today’s Solutions: June 09, 2023

This year, the world celebrated the 50th anniversary of the 1969 moon landing. Now, NASA is planning to head back to the moon, this time to look for water. The journey, planned for 2022, will land a golf cart sized Volatiles Investigating Polar Exploration Rover (VIPER) on the southern end of the moon to look for water and ice residue. 

Water is critical to most space exploration initiatives because it indicates the possibility of life. The rover was constructed in collaboration with Honeybee Robotics and can drill into the lunar surface to take samples of its mysterious composition. If successful, NASA hopes this expedition will help them prepare for a crewed mission to the moon in 2024.
