Space Engineers Develop New Spectrometer to Determine Age of Rocks on Moon

After successfully using Raman Spectroscopy to find life on Australian ancient rocks and vying to find similar traces of alien life on Mars, astro-engineers are now developing new instruments to measure the age of rocks on the Moon and other planets based on laser ablation resonance ionisation mass spectrometry. Currently, several techniques used to measure the age are not practical ...
