Water is Found on the Moon

Water on the MoonIt’s the discovery that scientists had waited and hoped for, and it’s finally official – there IS water on the moon.

The Deep Impact observations of the Moon not only unequivocally confirm the presence of [water/hydroxyl] on the lunar surface, but also reveal that the entire lunar surface is hydrated during at least some portion of the lunar day.

Despite this however, the moon remains drier than any desert on Earth, with water only existing in very small quantities. One ton of the top layer of the lunar surface would hold about 32 ounces of water.

Now we’ve just got to find some gravity and an atmosphere, and we can start packing.
