Scientists Detect Earth-Equivalent Amount of Water Within the Moon

Scientists Detect Earth-Equivalent Amount of Water Within the Moon

 

"The bottom line," said Saal, an author on the ScienceExpress paper and the principal investigator on the research grants, "is that in 2008, we said the primitive water content in the lunar magmas should be similar to the water content in lavas coming from the Earth's depleted upper mantle. Now, we have proven that is indeed the case."

Oh goody, another thing I get to tell my daughter I was wrong about. Lol. She's 10 and asks the most scientific questions I've ever heard from a kid. Three days ago it was "Is there water on the moon?" to which I had said "Nope, all dust." Good thing I don't have a problem with telling her I was wrong! :P 

Thanks for sharing this article!

Amazing. We (humans) really need to build a lunar base so that we can have a base for interstellar travel.
