We should all have known that scientist’s were planning to send a rocket to the moon to blast a hole in the crust in search of water, well they finally did it and they found about 114 Litres but that was just what they saw, they suspect there was much more that they missed.
This gives more chance for a moon base to be set-up in the near future because we then don’t have to bring all the water we need from earth, instead we can just mine it, but we have to be careful not to use it too quickly, we must be conservative with it because there is no water falling from the sky on the moon, there is only what is underground and that’s it.
The reason why there is water on the moon is (as most scientist’s and people including me believe) because when the asteroid hit millions of years ago, it broke-apart some of our planet and much of it was the ocean, it then got caught in earth’s gravitational pull and the water froze under the surface of the moon.
Finding water on the moon doesn’t just mean we can build a moon base, it also means the potential to find micro-organisms in the water and hopefully find some new species not found on earth, which would further prove that other life forms could form on places other than earth.
I personally hope that we will form a base on the moon because we can use it as a re-fueling station to help us get to mars and do some research there. One day it will happen, but for now we just have to wait.
