The Moon Is Surprisingly Wet
Washington, D.C. The moon isn't the dry dull place it seems. Traces of water lurk in the dirt unseen.
Three space probes have found traces of water all over the moon, something
scientists hadn't expected.
The water comes and goes during the lunar day. It's not a lot of water. If you took a two-liter soda bottle of lunar dirt, you might extract a medicine dropper full of water. If you wanted a drink of water, it would take a baseball diamond's worth of dirt.
"It's (still) is drier than any desert we have here," said astronomer
Jessica Sunshine .
NASA's Deep Impact probe provided the second evidence.
"There's just no question that it's there," Pieters said.
