Skip to comments.LCROSS mission to make major announcement

"There could be as much ice on the moon as in all of Lake Erie," When NASA's Lunar Crater Observing and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) mission crashed into Cabeus Crater on the moon's south pole, October 9th, the team did find water in the form of, "Ice as we know it," according to multiple sources within the agency. "It will change the way we think about the moon. It is something we want to share with the world."

Of course LCROSS was the first NASA mission with it's own official NASA Rock song! It is called "Water On the Moon" and is performed and written by LCROSS Deputy Project Manager John Marmie! Performed by John Marmie and Jeff Petro."
The song starts about 1:30 into the video:
That they crahed into an alien building hidden in the shadows of the crater?
Now lets get back there. However, if it’s either Mars or moon, I’d say push on to Mars. If possible to do both, then great. If not, lets focus on Mars.
Hey, wait: I read an article on this forum last night that announced they found no water of any kind. What’s up with this? Did they invent water to keep their own tap flowing? What’s the truth?
NASA: “We found no evidence of water in the data.”
Administration: “Look again.”
Lcross struck an Alien pyramid, we already knew that.
Maybe they found a birth certificate!
Any moon/mars mission is being aborted at the Obamacare hospital
I have been wondering what the results were from the “LCROSS” mission. Since we hadn’t heard anything back from it, I assumed no ice was found.
I wonder if Ice formed in space would be consumable, even after decontamination/purification. Who knows what could be in it that we have no clue about.

Pardon my stupidity, but why didn’t anybody find lunar water during the Apollo project?
The lunar surface (down to the levels the astronauts could dig) was bone dry. Water was detectable in some samples brought back for studies.
Ice is fine but I ain’t making travel plans until they find vodka.
That does not sound like that much when you consider how big the moon is.
NASA's Smoking Gun: Part II LCROSS' (and LRO's) Secret NASA Mission to the Moon ....Excerpt
The pre-impact NASA public relations campaign was irresistible ... and everywhere.
For perhaps only the second time in its history (the first was Deep Impact, but that was MUCH further away ...), the Space Agency was publicly inviting "ordinary people" -- from every class, economic strata and age-group -- to participate in a unique, extraordinary, literally once-in-a-lifetime personal space experience--
The spectacular crash of a "NASA spaceship" directly into the surface of the Moon ... with millions of Americans watching LIVE with their own eyes as it took place (below)!
At least, that's what everyone (with more than a bit of help from some spectacular NASA and contractor animations - above) thought they were being invited to observe ....
In fact, when both LCROSS spacecraft did hit the Moon -- early Friday morning, October 9th, at 7:31 AM Eastern Daylight Time--
No One ... anywhere on Earth -- from the most psyched amateur to the professionals at the largest terrestrial observatories, even to the Hubble Space Telescope itself in close Earth orbit -- none of these folks or instruments saw ANYTHING actually hit the surface of the south pole of the Moon!
Instead, despite literally millions of Americans eagerly watching ... straining to see something ... in reality, the only "direct observer" of this entire, over-hyped NASA affair, was--
Yea, Big deal.
There are far more important issues at hand, like welfare for the poor and unfortunate....And Africa.
Come on man, Get with the picture.
Either you are with us or against us.
Ice? woo! Now we need to give billions of dollars in tax money to nasa so that we can beat the rest of the world to the inevitable “race for the ice.”
My children will dream of a day when man skates on the moon.

“That does not sound like that much when you consider how big the moon is.”
That was in ONE spot. There will likely be others, and maybe nore subsurface.
