U.S. & World

NASA says it will announce “an exciting new discovery about the Moon” on Monday.

The announcement will come from the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) at a media teleconference at 9 a.m. PT Monday

“This new discovery contributes to NASA’s efforts to learn about the Moon in support of deep space exploration,” NASA said in a press release.” Under NASA’s Artemis program, the agency will send the first woman and next man to the lunar surface in 2024 to prepare for our next giant leap – human exploration of Mars as early as the 2030s. Understanding the science of the Moon also helps piece together the broader history of the inner solar system.”
