NASA has made a groundbreaking discovery — confirming the presence of water on the surface of moon in the area that is exposed to sunlight. Previously, we knew that water was present as ice on the dark part of the moon, and that’s part of the reason that the next mission to the moon is to the lunar south pole, where it’s believed that ice could be present hidden in craters that aren’t ever exposed to direct sunlight. This isn’t an entirely surprising discovery, because NASA scientists and researchers had previously found indications that water was potentially present on the moon’s sunlight side.
