Scientists find water on sunlit surface of Moon

by samreen

Astronomers from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration for the first time have detected water molecules on the sunlit surface of the moon, raising hopes that water there may be more plentiful than previously believed, the space agency said Monday.

Until now, scientists had only detected water in the cold, dark shadows of craters at the lunar poles. The new findings published Monday in the journal Nature Astronomy involve the detection of water molecules in one of the largest, sunniest lunar craters that is visible from Earth.
