Massive Ice Chunks Found On Moon’s North Pole

New data from an Indian probe strongly suggests there are massive chunks of water ice hidden in some of the moon’s perennially shadowed polar craters. In the North Pole area alone, the amount of water ice is estimated at 600 million cubic meters, “an ample supply for spacecraft to use as fuel, should humans ever return to the moon and set up shop, according to Paul Spudis of the Lunar and Planetary Institute, Houston.”

Unfortunately, the President said last week that we had already been to the Moon, so no planned trips there to explore the Moon’s poles for lunar water ice.
