    Not so amazing once you understand that the Moon is a hollow, artificial satellite and that NASA could teach the CIA how to lie

    Where did that come from? I'd like to see the whole story.

    We need to get back there with real live people capable of thinking and reacting, not just robots.

    The Moon is not 4.5 billion years old, the planet is. Unless of course you disagree with the impact theory for moon formation, but all other models have serious flaws.

    i think the moon is as old as the earth, and water on the moon is a cool thing. if they can extract it i wonder if it would be drinkable, would a station on the moon have a present water supply? interesting stuff.

    This is a cool development. Water on the moon means you can colonize. A station on the moon would be a good first step out to the rest of the solar system.

    Until recently, they never even claimed there was even ice on the moon.

    Mars has now been proven to have ice, but not liquid water.

    In the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in DC, they have on display a Moon rock you can touch, and I have, every visit.

    To actually touch a piece of rock that was on the Moon, wow!!!

    We know that the moon is constantly bombarded by comets and asteroids, as is the Earth. Much of this material is water. Some of it would be injected into the surrounding material. Here is an interesting article on the rate and incidence of the bombardment that both the Earth and the moon.
