Climate change is one of the most important challenges that humanity is facing in the 21st century. The electricity sector plays a key role in achieving the purpose set by the Paris agreement to limit the rise in the planet's temperature and the greenhouse effects.
NASA's Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) recently confirmed the presence of water on the lunar surface, specifically in the sunlit area. In the following lines, we will discuss the many implications of this finding, both for future space missions and for a future colonisation of Earth's natural satellite.
Cities are increasingly committed to sustainability, and urban green corridors play an important role in this process. Briefly, this refers to a strip with a significant presence of vegetation that links outstanding natural areas of the city. In addition, they bring numerous advantages: increasing and protecting biodiversity, mitigating the heat island effect, reducing air and noise pollution, etc.

According to satellite observations that began in 1979, the average maximum extent of the Arctic during the months of March is decreasing decade by decade, confirming a worrying trend.
