Posted on 09/21/2009 5:27:18 PM PDT by KevinDavis
Reliable sources report that there will be a press conference at NASA HQ at 2:00 pm this Thursday featuring lunar scientist Carle Pieters from Brown University.
The topic of the press briefing will be a paper that will appear in this week's issue of Science magazine wherein results from the Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M3) aboard Chandrayaan-1 will be revealed.
The take home message: there is a lot of water on the Moon.
Robert A. Heinlein would be so proud (read The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress).
Good News for the Chinese you mean. We’re not going there. “low erf orbit is the place to be ...” barf
Please add me to the Space Ping list. Thanks!
Please add me to the Space Ping List.
Water on the moon is big news!
If true... this changes everything.
Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to breathe.
Did they also report any magnetic anomalies on the moon?
There is no water on the moon. Water is composed of H2O (oxygen). There aint no oxygen on that rock. We have been there and done that. Look , this agency is history. They failed to capture the public on the last 1 billion dollar fiasco to nowhere by trying to sell “Our brave and diverse astronuts are out there dodging “space debris””, That didn’t work any more than all the “damage report” baloney causing needless space walks in prior flights. As conservatives appalled at bloated government spending we should all demand the immediate shut down of this futile endeavor (bad pun) .
Great book if you are not intimidated by unconventional approaches to male female relations and strong women. I started reading Heinlin in high school, was surprised to discover that he also wrote sci fi of a more adult content.
No water? Imagine, all those scientists, instruments and experiments and all they had to do was ask you. I’ll bet they feel silly about now. /s
It'd be a game changer if (1) it were true, (2) the water were in sufficient quantity, and (3) if it were recoverable. Shouldn't be all that difficult to prove or disprove. I say let out the commercial contracts and start the strip-mines NOW!
Right. And lots of cheese too.
Bookmarked for future yuks.
Haven’t you seen Total Recall? We have to get to the alien machine, which will melt Mars’ vast quantities of ice, and then the moon will have an atmosphere!!
Or something like that.....
Here is the lunar soil as analyzed by Sen Harrison Schmidt with whom I spoke about the resources.
Mine the moon and you have silicon for solar cells! Iron which can be made into steel. Aluminum and the list goes on.
“There is no water on the moon”
So you’ve been there?
“Water is composed of H2O (oxygen). There aint no oxygen on that rock.”
Fortunately you’re wrong, apparently you’re also not a chemist.
