According to latest NASA LCROSS – LRO press conference Moon got Hydrogen, Mercury and 50% more water than expected. Availability of Hydrogen can provide billions of gallon of more water.
NASA’s LCROSS mission launched in June 2009 along with the space agency’s powerful Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO. In October of that year, the LCROSS – LRO probe watched as its upper rocket stage crashed into the lunar south pole, then followed the impactor in to make a crash of its own.
The results will be featured in six papers published in the Oct. 22 issue of the journal Science.
