Submission + - LCROSS finds water (spaceref.com)

tbischel writes: The results are in: LCROSS has found "significant amounts" of water on the moon. Many will remember the less than stunning impact a month ago, but the near-infrared spectral signatures indicate water was indeed in the plume created by the satellite's impact in the polar crater. This has long term implications in creating a permanent base on the surface of the moon, allowing astronauts to collect water ice from these craters rather than bringing it from Earth, where water could potentially be used to create propellants, or a tasty moon slushy.
