According tomedia reports, even now science and technology are constantly evolving, most people on Earth are still unlikely to go to the moon. But there’s a chance to put you in a place like the moon, Montana in the United States. According to a NASA blog post, Montana’s unique location makes it a site for mining operations, while it is full of a rock found on the moon, the oblique long rock.
According to the introduction, from the earth’s point of view, the moon oblique long rock is the moon’s surface light-colored, highly reflective part – the moon’s highland. These are the moon’s oldest rocks — more than 4 billion years old — that covered the entire lunar surface before the young moon’s shell was hit and crushed by asteroids and comets.
Although the Apollo mission brought back a large amount of minerals from the moon, it is still very limited. Even if you’re a scientist, you may not have access to them, but finding the same type of rock on Earth is much easier.
Sarah Deitrick, of NASA’s Johnson Space Center, said in a statement: “Stillwater Complex can tell us about the formation of the long rock itself and what the lunar surface of the Lunar Highlands looks like. “
Although the external factors of the Earth’s oblique long rocks can cause small changes in their composition over time, using them as simulations of lunar material works well because, as an analog, it can be used for testing of a variety of devices that will soon travel to the moon with the Artemis mission.
“The reason I’m interested in the simulation is simple,” explains Doug Rickman, a NASA lunar geologist. “
