Some NASA hardware on India's Chandrayaan-1 probe has spotted indications of water on the lunar surface, which set off a scramble to point other instruments at the moon and dig through old data. The results provide comprehensive indications that there is water on the lunar surface.
The new findings, detailed in Friday's issue of the journal Science, come in the wake of further evidence of lunar polar water ice by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and just weeks before the planned lunar impact of NASA's LCROSS satellite, which will hit one of the permanently shadowed craters at the moon's south pole in hope of churning up evidence of water ice deposits in the debris field.
