The possible existence of deposits of volatile compounds in the nsr s5 area in the area of scott crater on the moon // Reports of the International symposium "Lunar Exploration and Space Technology Heritage". — Kazan Federal University Kazan, 2016. — P. 108–111. The six statistically most stable spots with the lowered neutron flow were revealed by the LEND neutron spectrometer installed on board the LRO spacecraft in the both lunar polar regions [1]. Five spots are located near the South Pole of the Moon and one - near the North Pole. Only one of the above spots - NSR S5 (center coordinates ∼ 83º S, 30º E) - is located in the Luna - Glob spacecraft landing area (sector boundary 70º S - 85º S, 0º E - 60º E [2], planned by Roscosmos in 2019. In vicinity the area of NSR S5 there are a large crater Scott (82.2 o S, 48.3 o E, D = 107.8 km) and its satellite craters: Scott E (81.2 o S, 35.7 o E, D = 29 km), Scott M (83.9 o S, 34.7 o E, D = 18 km), Vapovsky (83.1 o S, 53.5 o E, D = 11.5 km), located on the inner slope of the crater Scott. In the present study, we investigated the illumination conditions, temperature regime and the possibility of existence of deposits of volatile compounds, similar to those found at the site of LCROSS probe fall in the crater Cabeus (85.2 o S, 42.1 o E, D = 100.6 km), such as H2O, H2S, NH3, SO2, C2H4, CO2, CH3OH, CH4 and CO [3] in vicinity NSR S5 spot. The data from laser altimeter LOLA onboard the LRO spacecraft was used to obtain the illumination condition in this region.
