There's water on the Moon!

One of the questions we've long wanted an answer to is the one: is there water on the Moon?

Of course, no one thinks that there's going to be running water on the surface: there's not enough atmosphere for that. But is there ice where the sun don't shine? Or perhaps water further underground?

Amazingly, we now know that there is indeed water on the Moon.

Nasa has found 'a significant amount' of water inside a crater on the Moon in a discovery that could pave the way for the first manned lunar base.

The agency announced that last month's audacious attempt to smash two spacecraft into the Moon's rocky surface to find ice was a major success.

Excellent news at it makes that idea of having a permanent Moon base that much easier. Roll on that, he exploration of the asteroids and by the way, where is my flying car?
