Our mission is to find if there really is water on the moon. We wanted to find out if the water that was found in 2009 on the lunar north pole is really water. Most people would probably think that is a funny question because a common belief in the past was that the moon was absolutely dry. However, more recent missions have found that water does exist on the moon; in permanently darkened craters, as frozen ice (Thompson, 2009).

Our robot is going to be launched to the north pole of the moon. Plus, if we discover that it’s real frozen water, a lunar base could be established and water would be used as fuel.

Our robot will spend its time looking for icy rocks or ice. If the robot collects ice then the sensors would begin their work. The robot would put the ice in a tube, melt it, and begin the testing. A laser pointer (or something near it) would shine through the water to test its angle of incidence.

A rocket called LACROSSE discovered that water was on the moon officially, which brings us to the cause of the project, which is potentially to purify the water (if we confirm it is water) and NASA could potentially establish a moon base.
