NASA literally finds buckets of water on the moon !

Just when we though the LCROSS mission was a failure NASA is touting that the mission revealed "bucket"sized amounts of water found in the crater Cabeus on the moon's south pole. Of course it would be an embarrassment wouldn't it if the 85 million dollar project revealed nothing found?. Clearly this signals to NASA they have the go-ahead now for a man made base on the moon by 2020.

NASA talks about the buckets of water found:

The LCROSS team took the known near-infrared light signature of water and compared it to the impact spectra LCROSS near-infrared recorded after the probe had sent its spent rocket crashing into the moon.

A spectrometer helps identify the composition of materials by examining which wavelengths of light they emit or absorb.

"We got good fits" for the data graphs, said Anthony Colaprete, LCROSS's principal investigator, at today's press conference at the NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California.

As I remember , it is the India moon probe that found the water. And I think that NASA has been lying about it all along.

I think the bigger story has been missed here....BUCKETS were found on the moon! Finding water isn't all that surprising. BUCKETS on the other hand, that's a total shocker!
