NASA’s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy has confirmed that the moon has more water than previously thought, and that NASA has discovered water on the sunlit surface of the moon, indicating that water may be distributed across the lunar surface, and not only limited to cold, shadowed places. Dr Riaan Steenkamp, the Head of Physics and Astrophysics at the University of Namibia, told Future Media News that if the water can be mined, it would be wonderful news.
