Bombing the Moon pays off?

Quote:
There is water on the Moon, scientists stated unequivocally on Friday, and considerable amounts of it.

“Indeed yes, we found water,”

My favourite bit has to be:

Quote:
The Lcross mission consisted of two pieces — an empty rocket stage to carve into the lunar surface and a small spacecraft to measure what was kicked up, but it too slammed into the surface.
Nice to see they still haven't worked out how to land properly ????

Lol

I thought this was awesome news.

This will, in my opinion, push the Obama administration towards approving a moon expedition. With large sums of water at stake, we could begin mining asteroids! You know how rich that would make the US if we could pull it off?

Oh yes it was a large sum, 100 kg.

NASA has decided it's ready to talk about some of the data obtained when its LCROSS mission slammed two objects into the Moon: the ejected material contained 100kg of water, which created unambiguous signals in the probe's spectroscopy equipment. Ars Technica

The article is an interesting read.

I'm holding out hope that that was just the little bit kicked up, and that there is much more than that down there, and in other craters.
