Mark Robinson from the University of Arizona at a conference of planetologists in Nantes reported, that in some areas of Moon located lunar rocks, where the percentage of titanium is from 1% to 10%, which is quite a lot, such as on the Earth the highest concentration of titanium in rocks less than 1%. The discovery was made on the basis of analysis of about four thoUSAnd photos, taken with the lunar probe LRO (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter), which was shooting the Moon's surface in seven different bands with a resolution of 100 and 400 meters per pixel. According to Mark Robinson, titanium on the Moon is composed in a Moon mineral, which contains iron, titanium and oxygen. Therefore, in the case of the industrial production of titanium on the Moon, this mineral can be used not only for the extraction of titanium, but also to get the oxygen, which needed for the organization of a lunar base.
