Scientists found moving water on the Moon

The Moon apparently isn't nearly as dry as scientists once thought. That's the message from researchers using data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter to detect water molecules and the behavior of the moisture over the course of a lunar day.Earth's Moon was once assumed to be a dry and dusty place, but over time that image has changed. Scientists discovered ice present near its poles, and more recently we've learned that liquid water does indeed exist within the lunar su...

Tiny amounts of water bounce along the surface of the Moon

Data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has shown water on the Moon moves in an intricate cycle, mixing with lunar soil and then bouncing to a new location or being released into the atmosphere during the relatively warm lunar noon.
