Moon could be wetter than
jamuna news desk: The Moon, long thought to be a dry, inhospitable orb, hosts surprisingly large sub-surface water reserves, which one day may quench the thirst of lunar explorers from Earth, scientists said Monday.
"We found the signature of the lunar interior water globally using satellite data," Shuai Li, co-author of a study by scientists at Brown University in the United States, told AFP.
"Such water can be used as in situ resources for future exploration," said Li, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Hawaii and Brown
Li noted scientists had believed the Moon to be "bone dry" until about a decade
ago,when scientists found evidence of water an essential ingredient for life -- in pebble-like beads brought back by Apollo missions.
The Brown findings show numerous volcanic deposits distributed across the surface of the Moon contain "unusually high amounts of trapped water" compared with
discoveryof water in the ancient deposits, which are believed to consist of glass beads formed by the explosive eruption of magma from beneath the Moon's surface, boosts the idea that the lunar mantle is surprisingly water-rich.
"The key question is whether those Apollo samples represent the bulk conditions of the lunar interior or instead represent unusual or perhaps anomalous water-rich regions within an otherwise 'dry' mantle," said Ralph Milliken, lead author of the new research, published in the Nature Geoscience journal on Monday.
"The distribution of these water-rich deposits is the key thing," Milliken said. "They're spread across the surface, which tells us that the water found in the Apollo samples isn’t a one-off," he added.
"By looking at the orbital data, we can examine the large pyroclastic deposits on the Moon that were never sampled by the Apollo or (Soviet) Luna missions," said the associate professor
atBrown's Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences.
"The fact that nearly all of them exhibit signatures of water suggests that the Apollo samples are not anomalous, so it may be that the bulk interior of the Moon is wet."
Scientists believe the Moon formed from debris left behind after an object about the size of Mars slammed into the Earth early in solar system history.
They had assumed it was unlikely that any of the hydrogen needed to form water could have survived the heat of that impact.
"The growing evidence for water inside the Moon suggests that water did somehow survive, or that it was brought in shortly after the impact by asteroids or comets before the Moon had completely solidified," said Li.
The volcanic beads contain only tiny amounts of water but the deposits are large and the water could potentially be extracted.
"Other studies have suggested the presence of water ice in shadowed regions at the lunar poles, but the pyroclastic deposits are at locations that may be easier to access," said Li.
"Anything that helps save future lunar explorers from having to bring lots of water from home is a big step forward, and our results suggest a new alternative."
Tips to remain healthy this
jamuna lifestyle desk: Everyone eagerly looks forward to the arrival of monsoons. With rains, come flu, fevers, unending infections bacterial, viral and fungal and the two most common neglected tropical diseases,
With an appreciable increase in the individuals suffering from dengue and chikungunya, Neglected Tropical Diseases are a growing health threat to the public at large.
While we can’t do much about the rains, we can certainly beat the bugs by improving our digestion and strengthening our immune system.
So, here are some specific guidelines regarding how to fight monsoon diseases by boosting your immunity.
diet:Thesimplest way to boost immunity is by following a well-balanced and nutritious diet. This comprises a variety of foods, healthy grains, adequate calories, whole grains, pulses, fresh and green leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, low-fat dairy, fatty fish and healthy fats ,which is crucial for good immune function. Darker the colourof fruits and vegetables, more concentrated are they the sources of anti-oxidants(disease fighting nutrients), which fortify the immune system and make you less susceptible to seasonal infections and allergies.
Monsoons bring along temptation for fried food but we must keep our diet light and easily digestible, and stay away from rich oily and spicy food. Avoid eating outside and prepare fresh and hygienic food at home.
Besides a healthy
well balanceddiet, the nutrients which build immunity include beta carotene, B complex vitamins, Vitamin C, E, minerals including selenium, zinc, folic acid, iron, copper and magnesium, prebiotic and probiotic foods, as they enhance immunity and improve our digestion.
Safe water and plenty of fluids: With rains, water borne infections like typhoid, cholera,
hepatitisand diarrhoeaare also on the rise. Besides general hygiene and precautions in food, quality of water also needs to be regulated.
Unfortunately, most tap and well water is not safe for drinking due to heavy industrial and environmental pollution. A good water filtration system installed in our home is the only way to monitor and ensure the quality and safety of drinking water. Water from community systems can definitely be
treated / purifiedat home level by either of the processes — boiling, chemical treatment, filtration, or reverse osmosis. Boiling water will kill most types of disease-causing organisms that may be present.
Drink boiled and filtered water to avoid water-borne diseases and try to drink warm beverages. A piping hot bowl of soup not only helps you keep healthy and hydrated but also warms you up on a cold rainy day.
Patients suffering from monsoon
illnessesmusthave plenty of fluids, including coconut water, lemon water, vegetable juices, fruit juices, soups and oral rehydration solution to replace losses from fever and vomiting. Have herbal and green tea, and you may add mint or ginger to it.
Natural herbs and
spices:Anumber of plant extracts, isolated compounds, essential oils and seaweeds have shown promising anti-viral, larvicidal and insecticidal activity against some mosquito vectors as well as anti chikungunya and dengue.
Extracts of digestive spices such as carom seeds, cumin, black pepper, fennel, ginger, turmeric,
garcinia indicaand some of the plants and herbs including amla, tulsi, giloy, neem, papaya leaf, garlic and aloe vera have shown promising results in boosting immunity and protecting against viral and bacterial infections.
prebiotics:Probiotics,the good friendly bacteria when administered in adequate amounts promote the body’s natural immunity, help in digestion and maintaining good health. Good sources of probiotics include yogurt, buttermilkand thin drinkable yogurt. Special probiotic drinks and foods are commercially beingformulatedwith live cultures. Prebiotics are substances found in other foods that feed the probiotics (beneficial micro-organismspresent in the gut) and in a wayit’s the “probiotic’s food”. Good sources include whole grains, pulses, beans, vegetables, fruitsand seeds.
Keys to a healthy immune system include a good diet, plenty of
exercise, yoga, adequate rest, sleep and stress control.
