Bright spots on our moon could be frost, says NASA

The bright and cold spots were found at the moon's south pole

While the famed bright spot on dwarf planet Ceres got lots of attention in the past few years, it turns out that there are a few bright spots a bit closer to home. Analyzing data from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), researchers have spotted bright areas on our own moon which, they say, are likely being caused by frost. If they’re right, the frozen water particles could be as old as the solar system itself and could provide clues about ancient water delivery to the moon and Earth.

NASA's first solar probe to skim the sun at 430,000 mph

NASA's solar probe will zip around the sun at speeds of approximately 430,000 mph (700,000 km/h)

Almost 60 years ago an astrophysicist named Eugene Parker published a paper describing what he believed to be high speed matter and magnetism emanating from the sun. For just as long, scientists have sought to learn the mechanisms behind this far-reaching phenomenon, which we know today as solar winds. NASA says advances in technology have now made it possible to get some answers, and it will next year launch its first probe to enter orbit around our star in an effort to unlock some of its long-held secrets.
