22 July 2010

www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2010-07/uota-urd072010.php this story, sent in by Garry Gilligan, is all about water on the moon – and how new research is turning what scientists thought they knew on its head. The moon was supposed to be bone dry but researchers found ‘lunar dew’ and not it has been discovered that water itself is more widespread – on the outside and on the inside of the moon. A comparison has been made with water in volcanic systems on earth. A paper, ‘Lunar Apatite with Terrestrial Volatile Abundances’ appeared in Nature July 22nd. See abstract on above link.
