In a press conference going on now, NASA has said they’ve found “a significant amount” of water on the moon.
It’s an announcement that’s been expected for some time.
Are we talking about enough water for astronauts to actually live off? That’s what NASA is analysing now, attempting to scale the results of the small section studied by LCROSS. But “it’s water like any other water,” NASA said, though it’d need purification to drink. I guess that whole moon bombing didn’t turn out so boring after all. [CNN]
