Water may be forming on the moon thanks to Earth’s magnetic field

As the moon orbits Earth, it can pass through the long tail of Earth’s magnetic field, which seems to create water on the lunar surface


Electrons from Earth’s magnetic field may help to form water on the lunar surface during a full moon – although whether astronauts could harvest enough to drink it is unclear.

Water is made from hydrogen and oxygen, so can form when these two elements react. Because a hydrogen atom only has a single proton, sources of protons can serve as charged hydrogen atoms to bond with …
