India finds evidence of water on the moon

Chandrayaan-1, India's first lunar mission, has found evidence of large quantities of water on its surface, The Times newspaper reported on Thursday.
Data from the spacecraft also suggests water is still being formed on the moon, the British newspaper said.
"It's very satisfying," the newspaper quoted Mylswamy Annadurai, the mission's project director at the Indian Space Research Organisation in Bangalore, as saying.
The newspaper said the breakthrough would be announced by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration on Thursday.
NASA's website says it will hold a media briefing at 1440 EDT on Sept. 24 to "reveal new scientific findings about the moon" from data collected during national and international space missions.

NASA have known this for a long time now most of the guys who walked on the moon already new this john lear already new this. its just that now NASA can not keep this covered up any longer coz of the luna explorer spacecraft of other nations thats why NASA wanted to nuke the moon to get rid of this evidence and the relics of alien spacecraft FACT! watch out for more to come from china!!!

Yeah man, WTF? A satellite detected it in 2009? So seriously, we've had satellites flying way out into space for decades and we only just got this data about our very close moon -- WITHOUT even landing on it??! I also loved the way the papers wrote it like "..found by India. Oh, and USA and Europe orbitors too."
