NASA announces discovery of water on moon

After India's moon mission, the Chandrayaan, discovered water on the Moon's surface, American space agency NASA held a press briefing in Washington, DC on Thursday to announce to the world details about the discovery of water on the lunar surface.

"We have identified widespread water on the moon. A decade ago we would not have thought this possible; you have to think outside of the box on this," NASA officials said.

They also said that mcube along with Chandrayaan was able to detect water on the moon.

An analysis of Chandrayaan's images shows not drops of water, but a thin, invisible film of water molecules.

This is a result of solar winds bringing in hydrogen ions, which convert into water molecules on lunar rocks.

NASA finds water on the Moon

WASHINGTON (AFP) – A "significant amount" of frozen water has been found on the moon, the US space agency said Friday heralding a giant leap forward in space exploration and boosting hopes of a permanent lunar base.
Preliminary data from a dramatic experiment on the moon "indicates the mission successfully uncovered water in a permanently shadowed lunar crater," NASA said in a statement.
"The discovery opens a new chapter in our understanding of the moon," it added, as ecstatic scientists celebrated the landmark discovery.
"Yes indeed we found water and we did not find only a little bit but a significant amount," said Anthony Colaprete, project scientist and principal investigator for the 79-million-dollar LCROSS mission.
The data was found after NASA sent two spacecraft crashing into the lunar surface last month in a dramatic experiment to probe Earth's nearest neighbor for water.
One rocket slammed into the Cabeus crater, near the lunar southern pole, at around 5,600 miles (9,000 kilometers) per hour.
