Photo by  GEORGE DESIPRIS  from  Pexels Water is a valuable resource in deep space, along with being a sign of possible life. There are numerous things that astronauts do in space and water is important for a few among those. It is also essential for astronaut landings, survival, and other purposes such as the production of rocket fuel. Researchers in China discovered the first signs of the  presence of water on the moon’s surface . This was done with help of the data obtained from Chang’E-5 lander’s lunar mineralogical spectrometer (LMS).  Professors  LIN Yangting and LIN Honglei of the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Institute of Geology and Geophysics (IGGCAS) were the ones who made the discovery. The study also included researchers from CAS's National Space Science Center, the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa, CAS's Shanghai Institute of Technical Physics, and Nanjing University.
