  1. Z12.02: Payloads for Lunar Resources: Volatiles

    Release Date: 02-05-2019Open Date: 02-05-2019Due Date: 03-29-2019Close Date: 03-29-2019

    Whereas the Moon was once thought to be dry, more recent discoveries indicate that there are a variety of resources that exist on the Moon in an embedded or frozen state in the regolith. When acquired and exposed to higher temperatures and vacuum, these resources will change state into the vapor phase and are known as volatiles. Examples are polar water ice and other polar volatiles, or hydrogen ...
