Ice found on moon surface in NASA discovery

For years we've been discussing the possibility of there being water in Mars, and turns out there was ice on the Moon all along and we didn't know.

Quote:
Frozen water has been discovered for the first time hiding in shadowy craters on the surface of the moon.

Scientists found ice in the lunar north and south poles, which they said could one day provide human visitors with a source of water that would allow for longer stays on the astronomical body.

Most of the ice was found in craters that never reach temperatures higher than -250F (-157C) because sunlight cannot reach them.

Are you saying that because of its craters?

Shut up, Wallace. And look out for vending machines... or was it a refrigerator? All I remember is it was on skis.

I've always wanted to visit the Moon so I could jump really high and pretend to be a pro basketball player. Why didn't the American astronauts built a basketball hoop and tried to set world records for dunking jumps on there?!

Is it just me, or does it underscore how pathetic our progress is that we're just now figuring this out? About the goddamn moon, in our backyard? Water on Mars was one thing, but this?!

It was but a humble moon robot, protecting the moon cheese from damage and vandal, much like the garden variety fine arts museum guard.

On skis.
(While on that subject, I love how extra Wallace is for building a rocket to the moon just because all the shops were closed at his usual Tuesday Cheese time)


But yeah, this is really cool. Especially considering that said ice would provide water much less deadly than that found in the lake on Mars.
