Water on the Moon – Confirmed!

lcross moonOn October 9th of this year, NASA crasheed a rocket into the surface of the moon. The impact sent a (somewhat anti-climactic) plume of debris into the LCROSS satellite so that it could read it for evidence of water.

And guess what? They found it!

There is water on the Moon, scientists stated unequivocally on Friday, and considerable amounts of it.
“Indeed yes, we found water,” Anthony Colaprete, the principal investigator for NASA’s Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite, said in a news conference.

The confirmation of scientists’ suspicions is welcome news both to future explorers who might set up home on the lunar surface and to scientists who hope that the water, in the form of ice accumulated over billions of years, could hold a record of the solar system’s history.

Science!

    Hello Miss Lindsay,

    It looks like we have mutual interests. When I saw the discovery of water on the moon I thought “how cool”.

    Have you heard of the Canopy Theory? Basically, it’s a theory that says there was a big canopy around the earth before the Flood. 🙂 (I just revealed my myself).

    Well, I really like the theory and telling people about it.

    Did you know the near side of the moon has considerably more craters than the far side of the moon?

    Genesis 7:11 alludes to there being a grip of water above the earth. I’m inclined to think that water shotgunned the near face of the moon. Giving rise to this discovery.

    What do you think?

    Hi Karl,

    It really doesn’t seem to me like we have mutual interests, as I in no way accept the Bible as fact.

    I have heard of the Canopy Theory…something Kent Hovind made up, right? Everything I’ve read about it goes against reality. Do you honestly believe that there was a global flood??? There’s not that much water on earth, and it’s not possible to have a canopy of water around the Earth. If you have evidence for either of those things though, I’d be happy to consider it. And since you said you like telling people about it I wouldn’t mind hearing it from someone who believes in it, since I’ve only heard of it from skeptics.

    I think, but am not 100% sure, that there are more craters on the far side of the moon than this side because it’s facing outwards. The near side of the moon has been tidally locked with the earth for a long, long time, so it’s less likely to get hit. What does that have to do with there being water on the moon?
