This is a great day for science. Scientists have confirmed the existence of water on the Moon. Although it has been suspected for a very long (too long) time, today we have hard evidence. The implications of this revelation are very exciting… It gives us purpose.
From this day forward we have a reason to go to the Moon other than to study it. The water ice in the lunar soil, which there is a lot of according to the findings, will power industry on the moon. Big Oil can begin to harvest Helium3. Big Virgin can set up a tourism base. NASA will have the means to finally take the first steps toward branching out into the solar system and permanently extending humankinds reach.
These are exciting and geeky times.
