LCROSS Impact Data Indicates Water on Moon
- You may recall last October when NASA, according to popular news media, "bombed the moon." In fact, scientists sent a rocket to impact the Moon's surface in order to produce a plume of debris. A spacecraft flew through the impact debris to collect data, which was sent to Earth for analysis. Check out the LCROSS Mission Overview website for more details and videos of the event.
After analyzing the impact materials using spectroscopy, scientists think they have detected water on the moon. For the full article, see LCROSS Impact Data Indicates Water on Moon.
