Huge Moon Crater's Water Ice Supply Revealed - Credit: NASA/GSFC/SVS The moon, once thought to be bone dry, has now been shown to harbor significant water. This photo shows the search for water on the moon. #Scientific #Exploration
Pluto's giant moon Charon may have had a buried ocean. In July of 2015, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft will be the first to visit Pluto and Charon, and will provide the most detailed observations to date.
This the Genesis Rock, a lunar rock collected during the Apollo 15 mission. Scientists announced that traces of water have been detected within the sample. The presence of water in such an old rock contradicts long held theories of the Moon's formation - that it formed in a giant collision between Earth and a Mars sized object. A Moon formed in such a way would have been mostly molten during its early life, and liquid water would have been impossible.
