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.
