NASA inspires my hopes again. I’ll look up at the moon and know there’s water up there:
“The full understanding of the LCROSS data may take some time. The data is that rich,” said Colaprete. “Along with the water in Cabeus, there are hints of other intriguing substances. The permanently shadowed regions of the moon are truly cold traps, collecting and preserving material over billions of years.”
The thing with water isn’t just that we can drink it. It’s that we can make things with it. We can make ships go with it.
