Water on the moon!

Sort of a holy grail for the moon (image by Luc Viatour and mars is to find water already there. Water is heavy, and would be REALLY expensive to transport to space until the advent of aerial thermonuclear powered space jets.

This news blew up today. Even Google did one of their special home page days for the news. The Economist covers it with the byline "There is water—or, at least ice—on the moon"

CNN says "NASA has found significant water on the moon."

The NY Times actually has a pretty good article, with a cool picture of the satellite about to slam into the lunar surface departing from the observation module.
