Video reveals why astronauts should not land on this region of the Moon

It's all about electricity.

In case you missed, the moon has become a hotspot in our Solar System: everybody has been eyeing its white craters for a cool spot to land on lately. In the next year, Japan, South Korea, Russia, India, the United Arab Emirates, the United States, and several companies aim to send missions to our cosmic companion.

Remarkably, NASA's $93-billion Artemis program may steal the show this year with its inaugural launch, as it's the first step toward delivering astronauts to the moon. Scheduled for launch in 2025, the crew of Artemis 3 will land in the moon's south polar zone and will be the first crewed lunar landing since Apollo 17 in 1972, with two astronauts spending approximately one week on the moon's surface. 

In this YouTube video, Astrum explains why NASA shouldn't land near the moon's poles yet, as apparently, the moon's "polar regions are a shocking place for humans to be". If you're curious to learn why, make sure you watch the video embedded above, and as always, enjoy.
