Abstract [en]

In this project we investigate the facts and speculations concerning water existence and origin on the Moon. We give an overview of Moon creation theories and volatile transfer on Earth’s location and the lunar surface. We present results based on data from Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M3) on board the Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft revealing the sources and physical processes responsible for OH/H2O in the lunar soil and from the Lunar CRater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) mission, detecting water in the lunar South pole crater Cabeus ejected debris. Both missions provided evidence of water, OH and volatiles traces on the Moon but the question of the origin of these traces remains open.
