God has given Water to the World as the Holy sacrament gift and ordered not to tolerate spoiling water, for He has not done it.
In our lifetime – our days filled with perpetual race for all kinds of benefits, wealth, the lifetime of the oil idol and the golden calf, – only belief in Water and devotion to Water, its miracle cure for securing health, for soil fertility, for saving the beautiful all can put the will of God into action!
The site posts popular articles, essays and other useful information about water as a unique natural resource. We look forward to receiving your feedback regarding the site CLEAN WATER SPACE.
Specialists of the University of Brown (USA) compiled a detailed map of the water reserves in the lunar soil based on data obtained from the Moon Mineralogy Mapper spectrometer. The spectrometer was equipped with a space probe Chandrayaan-1, which went to the satellite of the Earth in 2008.
If you look at the map, you can see that most of the water is situated in the circumpolar regions of the Moon. But “more” does not mean much: the concentration of H2O at the poles is 500-750 ppm (millionths of a share). Nevertheless, traces of moisture are present throughout the surface. Read more
NASA specialists analyzed the images of Mercury made by the Messenger probe and came to the conclusion that there is a lot of ice on this planet. Frozen water is found in large and small craters. Where it came from is not yet known.
For the first time, scientists suggested that there is water on Mercury in 2011. Then it turned out that the magnetic center of the celestial body was shifted to the north, and its poles are poorly lit. Read more
Ever wonder how much water is in a cloud? (Illustration by Yutaka Houlette)
How much water is in a cloud? What would be left if you squeezed the water out of it?
It depends on the cloud. A giant thunderhead may contain more than two billion pounds of water, but even a modest-sized cloud may contain water equivalent to the mass of a 747 jet. If you could squeeze the water out, the cloud would disappear. But you can’t. Some desert peoples use cloth “cloud catchers” to gather condensation and fill local water tanks for drinking and irrigation.
What is the practical use of the imaginary number √–-1?
The number is “imaginary” in the mathematical sense (that is, its square is less than zero). Such numbers represent solutions to many algebraic equations, and they are central to describing the motion of waves in such practical areas as hydrodynamics and aerodynamics, electrical circuit design, quantum mechanics and the theory of heat conduction.

It’s become an annual affair, the rafts of green algae washing up on the shores of Qingdao, China. Since 2007, massive algae blooms in the Yellow Sea have been fueled, scientists think, by “pollution and increased seaweed farming” south of Qingdao. The mats of photosynthetic phytoplankton aren’t dangerous to people (unless you count ruining a day at the beach as dangerous), but the return of these massive algae blooms year after year could be troubling for the marine creatures living in the Yellow Sea.
“The carpet on the surface can dramatically change the ecology of the environment beneath it,” says the Guardian. “It blocks sunlight from entering the ocean and sucks oxygen from the water suffocating marine life.”
Vast blooms of algae can cause the water to become “hypoxic,” to have the concentration of oxygen in the water drawn down so low that it makes it uninhabitable for many marine creatures. A strong case of hypoxia can further lead to something called a “dead zone.” And, by drawing down the oxygen levels and messing with the chemistry of the water, algae blooms can temporarily amplify ocean acidification.

Not long after NASA’s Cassini orbiter first reached Saturn in mid-2004, it found something spectacular. This was our first good look at the ringed giant since the Voyager mission in the 1980s. And Cassini saw that one of Saturn’s moons, Enceladus, was venting something into space.
Research went on to show that Enceladus’ mighty plumes, which can shoot up to 50 miles high, were mostly water—like a giant Old Faithful, pumping into space. The plumes were not only water, though, says science writer Matthew Francis. They contain other intriguing chemicals, like methane, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and other more complex carbon molecules. “While hydrocarbons are pollutants on Earth (which create that lovely yellow smog over our cities), they also are naturally-occurring compounds that may have played a role in the early biochemistry of life on Earth,” Francis writes.
