Thar's Water In Those Thar Hills!

Well, apparently our WAR ON THE MOOON was more successful than initial - and lame - reports indicated. Apparently, in this close up here, you can see the white poofy cloud in the depths of the shadows. Water, NASA tells us.

There are actually two possible sources of water on the moon - in old craters like the one above, that have not had any direct sunlight for a loooong time; and 2. in the the lunar soil itself, everywhere. It's theorized the water could be mined out of the soil, but that would be a big effort.

So, for whatever it's worth - not much, it seems - yay! Water on the moon, which makes it much more theoretically feasible that we will one day colonize. Maybe in 2212.
