Scientists Confirm Water on Moon

No, there aren’t lakes in the moon’s craters, but scientists have found evidence that there is water on the moon, overturning longstanding theories that the lunar surface is as dry as a desert. Columbia University’s Arlin Crotts has gathered data revealing that the Soviets found water in moon rocks during a 1976 voyage, publishing their findings in 1978 in a Russian journal that went unnoticed by the West. Other trips to the moon, including the Clementine mission in 1994, have suggested that water exists on the moon, but the Soviets’ Luna-24 mission proves there’s even more than scientists thought.
