25+ gallons of water on the moon - November 14th 2009, 04:44 AM

LOS ANGELES – Suddenly, the moon looks exciting again. It has lots of water, scientists said Friday — a thrilling discovery that sent a ripple of hope for a future astronaut outpost in a place that has always seemed barren and inhospitable.
Experts have long suspected there was water on the moon. Confirmation came from data churned up by two NASA spacecraft that intentionally slammed into a lunar crater last month.
"Indeed, yes, we found water. And we didn't find just a little bit. We found a significant amount," said Anthony Colaprete, lead scientist for the mission, holding up white gallon water buckets for emphasis.
The lunar crash kicked up at least 25 gallons and that's only what scientists could see from the plumes of the impact, Colaprete said

That's awesome. But the moon is mostly covered in frozen ice anyway, and I thought it had nitrogen it in, or maybe that was another planet/moon.

That's a different chunk of floating space debris
There's actually only two other places in space (that I've heard of) that have confirmed ice/liquid. That would be Mars and Titan (Saturn's moon which has lakes of methane).
Oh and I think comets have ice too, I know for sure Halley's Comet does.

I was taught in school that the moon was covered in rock and "moon dust", never would have suspected water to be on a place like that though.
Kind of furthers the theory that the moon is actually a broken off chunk of earth.

No, the moon is mostly rock, with a bit of ice at the poles (like earth). However what's important about this discovery is that they didn't measure water-bearing ice, but actual water droplets all over the planet. The belief is that these droplets move about the moon like a sort of very light horizontal rain, so could be "harvested" by a long-term lunar mission.

You forgot Europa.


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I don’t seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.
