Water found on the Moon

NASA scientists hoping to find water on the Moon have said they've had success. They smashed a piece of a satellite into the moon but the expected large flume didn't happen. They base the success on the fact that water was detected by sensitive instruments on the satellite. Finding water on the moon makes a moonbase becoming reality one step closer. With water, people will be able to survive and it will provide a stepping stone to Mars. Launching to Mars is easier than from Earth, for a start, you won't need as much energy to break from the Moon as you would do from the Moon. Some people might be wondering how there is water on the moon. The reason is the moon is the result of a large celestial body smashing into the Earth causing large chunks to break off off Earth and form the moon. For more information, suggested reading is the BBC News website.
