Leonard David has an interesting piece over at the Space Coalition’s blog about recent discoveries about the moon:
Thereâ€™s growing chatter on the lunar grapevine that exciting news is in the offing regarding the finding of water ice on the Moon â€“ some suggesting thereâ€™s loads of it.
Still, in tight-lipped scientific circles there appears to be heightened excitement that data from both Indiaâ€™s Chandrayaan-1 as well as from NASAâ€™s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) appear to have struck paydirt. Both spacecraft carry gear that can probe darkened lunar craters.
Scientists were dropping hints of major discoveries on the moon during the recent lunar conference here at Ames. There are scientific papers that are under review but would be released soon.
