Slamming of space probes into moon reveals enough water to sustain astronauts

Computerworld - A little more than a year after slamming two spacecraft into a crater on the moon, NASA scientists are reporting that they've found not only some water but possibly enough to sustain human explorers.

Last October, NASA scientists decided to look for water on the moon by actually sending two probes 230,000 miles to crash into the lunar surface -- not once, but twice. The mission was designed to kick up what scientists believed is water ice hiding in the bottom of a permanently dark crater.

The ice is critical to any future manned missions to the moon since it would be a lot easier to turn ice into drinkable water than haul it all the way from Earth to the moon.

And that seems to be exactly what NASA has discovered. There is enough water ice on the lunar surface to sustain a human base there.
