After eight years spent recovering lost Moon data from the Apollo missions, scientists report in a new study they’ve solved a decades-old mystery of The missing tapes and the weekly performance logs gave the researchers enough new information to tease out a likely cause for the mysterious heating.

A decades-old lunar mystery has now been solved thanks to the recovery of once lost data tapes and a massive amount of sleuthing.

The results confirm that inexplicable changes in the moon’s temperatures recorded in the 1970s were not the result of some strange inner heat source, but rather the by-product on astronauts stomping around and stirring up moon dust.

In a study published in April in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets, researchers from Texas Tech University used recovered tapes from the 1970s Apollo missions to understand why the moon’s surface appeared to have warmed. These records were taken on the Apollo 15 mission, the fourth mission to land men on the moon in 1971, The Smithsonian reported.

The Sensational Murder Trial That Showed Off Abraham Lincoln's Skill as a Lawyer

  The Sensational Murder Trial That Showed Off Abraham Lincoln's Skill as a Lawyer The killing took place at a rowdy Saturday night picnic in late August. Twenty-four-year-old Duff Armstrong had been drinking with some friends. It was impossible to determine which blow had killed him, so both Armstrong and Norris were charged with the crime. Norris was tried first, and was quickly convicted and sentenced to eight years. There seemed to be little hope for Duff Armstrong—and then Abe Lincoln took his case.

Recover your password. The presence of astronauts on the moon caused an unexpected warming of its subsurface NASA ultimately abandoned the research due to a lack of funding, and only some of the tapes were archived, with the others assumed lost, leaving scientists unable to analyze it further.

The lost data tapes recovered by the scientists helped pinpoint the source of the warming during Apollo missions. With the help of missing moon tapes , researchers have uncovered the culprit behind a strange shift in temperatures during Apollo missions.

The primary purpose of this trip was to observe the moon’s surface through a variety of experiments. This included drilling probes into the moon that sent information back to Earth. Records of the moon’s temperature were taken from 1971-1977 but data from 1974-1977 were lost, Sciencealert reported.

The team was only able to recover less than 10 percent of all the lost tapes, and the information they could recover was poorly degraded. However, they did their best to restore the tapes and were able to fill in some of the gaps with the help of some hardcore science skills. Now, eight years after the tapes were originally discovered, the team have concluded that human activity was the reason for the temperature increases measured on the moon.

A decades-old lunar mystery has now been solved thanks to the recovery of once lost data tapes and a massive amount of sleuthing. Researchers from Texas Tech University used recovered tapes from the 1970s Apollo missions to understand why the Moon ’s surface appeared to have warmed.

In a recent finding, the scientist of Apollo has conducted the experiments on the Moon , and they have discovered the surface of the satellite buddy These type of findings are now covered in the period, and they are from April to June 1975, and it usually represents less than 10 percent of all the tapes .

The biggest indication that humans were the cause of the temperature increases on the moon was that the warming was stronger on the surface and faded in measurements taken deeper in the moon. This suggests that the source was not from inside the moon.

It appeared that the astronauts and their rovers stirred up the moon's loose outer surface dirt, exposing darker surface dirt—also known as regolith—that would have otherwise been hidden. Just as you learned to avoid dark shirts in the summer as dark colours absorb heat, the same is true for the moon’s surface. The now-darker dirt absorbed more of the sun’s heat, initially increasing the moon’s temperature.

In addition, photos acquired from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera show that there are dark surface paths on the moon where astronauts have traversed, Sciencealert reported.

All the time since the tapes were recovered , a group of scientists analyzed the lost lunar tapes until they got the answer. The source of the strange warming of the moon in the 1970s was none other than the Apollo astronauts themselves. Mystery of the 40-year-old moon solved .

Through recovering the lost tapes of Apollo moon missions, scientists finally have an answer on why the lunar surface became bizarrely warmer during the 1970s. 40-Year-Old Moon Mystery Solved .

“We suggest that, as a result of the astronauts' activities, solar heat intake by the regolith increased slightly on average, and that resulted in the observed warming,” the researchers wrote.
