NASA finds (more) water on moon, 'and we didn’t find just a little bit'

Must be a Friday. Or do people really care about this story? On Friday's edition of the NBC Nightly News they LEAD THE BROADCAST with a report on NASA discovering a lot of water on the moon (see video below).

(By the way, for the record, we've
known for a while that there are traces of water all over the moon.)

Perhaps what's exciting about this story is where it began, with the "disappointing" LCROSS mission where a NASA probe crashed parts of itself into the moon. (
Guardian) An "enormous plume" was predicted. But we hardly saw anything.

But as it turns out, while there wasn't much of a plume, NASA found evidence in the crater that led to this week's announcement. "Indeed, yes, we found water. And we didn’t find just a little bit, we found a significant amount," said a NASA spokesman. (

So what? Well, this improves prospects for colonizing the moon, since water can give us oxygen to breath and fuel for our rockets (as described in the Nightly News video below).

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
