It turns out there's plenty of water on the moon - at least near the lunar south pole, scientist said Friday. "Indeed, yes, we found water. And we didn't find just a little bit, we found a significant amount," said Anthony Colaprete, a principal project investigator at NASA's Ames Research Center. The discovery came from an analysis of data from a spacecraft NASA intentionally crashed into the moon last month. Colaprete estimated the impact kicked up at least 95 liters of water. Significant water would make it easier to set up a base camp for astronauts.
