If you go to google, you'll see that they did one of those "doodles" they do to celebrate special occasions. Apparantly, it says there's water on the moon! Click on it, and it'll show you some articles with a google search. I find this a bit far-fetched, but I'm no expert. Opinions?

It's pretty much confirmed that the moon has pockets of water on it. Our science nerds at NASA aren't too likely to make a mistake on something like that.

I thought they found water on the moon before, but perhaps that was Mars.

I was pretty surprised, I guess I just didn't hear about it before.

Yup, there be plenty of water on the moon. Pretty damn unlikely that there's anything living in it, but it means that it might be possible to set up an actual colony up there sometime in the future for research - plants can provide the oxygen, which in turn are kept alive by the water.

I think they found about 25 gallons or something. I know the amount is 25. I just can't remember whether it's gallons, litres or kilolitres

Great news for a wannabe space monkey like me. All that ice means we don't have to take as much water and oxygen, as we can extract it from the surface. This will make any future missions to the moon much more viable as you don't need the rockets and fuel that you would, if you were carrying a few months supplies. This will make it cheaper, and more likely to happen sooner. Yay! It's fantastic news!

I just wish I hadn't been born for another 200 years, so I could see if we realise our potential, and start to push out further. Not that I would have anything to gauge it against, so I wouldn't appreciate it and probably take it for granted, wishing I'd been born 200 years in the past. :D

One word of caution... I hope we don't discover anything valuable on the moon, because the idiots that we are, we'll probably mine it. That would be very sad. :(

Sorry dude http://www.technologyreview.com/Energy/19296/ it's already in the planning stages. And so humans become an even bigger drain on the universe..............

What's this bit for again?

Well... if it's for fusion reactors then I guess it's ok. 0_o

Nevermind eh, plenty more planets in the solar system, plenty more stars in the galaxy, plenty more galaxies in the universe, plenty more universes in the multi-verse, plenty more multi-verses in the.... erm...

EDIT: BTW dude, what on earth is that in your sig? I've gone cross-eyed at it and everything, but still can't figure it.

I think that's a plane in his sig. :P
Back on topic, I'm worried for the future of humanity. If they bring this moon stuff to the Earth, bad stuff will happen. Trust me. Everything fit together perfectly before "intelligent" life came around.
