We found water on moon

    Indias first lunar mission, Chadrayaan-1, found the strongest evidence yet that there might be water on the moon.

    NASA on Thursday revealed that India's maiden lunar mission Chandrayaan-I had traced water molecules on the moon's surface. It also
    "thanked" ISRO for making the discovery possible

      Probably because Neil and Buzz spilled their water bottles after planting the American flag.

      On Friday morning NASA is going to launch something into the moon to see if there is really water up there.

      I am going to try and watch it @ 1:30am friday with my telescope yaya! In Waimea HI.

    Can you see the shadow of a man on that photo.
    Close to the front of the picture.

      Oh brother...here goes that whole "TV studio" thing again...Couldn't they have hired better camera men back then that knew a little bit about where shadows should appear and from which direction? smile

    Good...not a moment too soon this planet is getting way to kooky! Where do you apply to help build the first Bio-domes?

    I need to see about the fast food franchise for the first lunar city.

    You won't build one with that tractor.

      They won't let me take my tractor...Never mind!

    Why not.
    The older the better.
    Looks like it has steady wheels on it.
    I'd take it for a ride.

    She's quite steady, my friend...and I bet she'd adapt quite well to weightlessness!

    Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft, like Moon Impact Probe (MIP) and Hyper-Spectral Imager (HySI) from ISRO as well as Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M3) and Miniature Synthetic Aperture Radar (Mini-SAR) through NASA to collect relevant data from the lunar surface. During the mission, excellent quality of data from all these instruments has been obtained. While M3 has covered nearly 97% of the lunar surface, some of the other instruments have covered more than 90%.

    detailed analysis of the data obtained from M3, which has clearly indicated the presence of water molecules on the lunar surface extending from lunar poles to about 60 deg. Latitude. Hydroxyl, a molecule consisting of one oxygen atom and one hydrogen atom, was also found in the lunar soil. The confirmation of water molecules and hydroxyl molecule in the moon's polar regions raises new questions about its origin and its effect on the mineralogy of the moon.

    A three colour composite of near-infrared reflected solar radiation for the lunar nearside illustrating the spatial extent of diagnostic absorption measured by M-cube.

    Blue colour indicates 3 micron absorption associated with presence of OH/water
    Red indicates absorption at 2 micron due to the presence of iron-bearing minerals
    The green represent reflected brightness at 2.4 micron.

    During this particular observation detection of volatiles is most prominent at higher cooler latitudes.

    The presence of volatiles appears to be a function of the surface radiation and thermal environment.

    I will post exact images soon

    Water on the moon?   Is it clean?

    India : To first discover water on moon ......
    It's great to be Indian .....

    There is water on Mars as well.  Their are polar ice caps on Mars.

    I believe one of the moons of Saturn or Jupiter has water as well, according to satellites we have out there.

    Pretty crazy.

      You are right TimTurner .......
      Water on these planets and natural satellites must be big proof of having life .... isn't it  ......
