NASA will launch its Volatiles Investigating Polar Exploration Rover, or VIPER, in 2023 to get a closer view of the Moon's South Pole and evaluate the concentration of water as well as other potential resources on its surface- to understand if it is possible for human life to sustain there

VIPER is the first resource mapping mission on any extraterrestrial body, NASA said. NASA said VIPER's findings could be a game-changer.
