The space race between India and Russia is currently underway, with both nations aiming to land on the moon’s surface on the same day. The race is a result of the sun rising on the latitude and longitude chosen by Ross Cosmos for the lunar 25. The first rays of the sun will be shining on the 21st, allowing Russia to use the full 14-day duration of the lunar orbit to generate solar energy.
The race is also centered around the discovery of polar ice waters on the moon’s poles. Water is a precious resource for humans, and finding these ice caps could lead to a new gateway for planetary adventures and endeavors. The possibility of obtaining water ice, possibly in the form of comma Frost, could provide a fuel source for the exploration of the moon.
The discovery of water ice was made in 2008 by Rose Chandrarayaan, who discovered lava prayers on the moon impact crop. NASA is planning to have an Artemis Vision complete mission designed for the lunar Southport, and advances are expected to occur. The first step is the discovery of lava prayers, followed by the launch of the Artemis mission.
