    WATER ON THE MOON???

    From CNN:

    MOFFETT FIELD, Calif. -- NASA will report the discovery of a large field of ice on the moon, KTVU has learned.

    Just weeks after NASA's L-CROSS mission analyzed a plume of debris generated by the impact of a satellite into a crater on the moon's south pole, NASA scientists will announce that the findings suggest the presence of frozen water at the site of impact.

    It's interesting but without an atmosphere, I have doubts about any life being discovered.

    The finding can lead to a permanent lunar base and also help understand how the moon and solar system evolved. It's a great find and exciting to consider we might have a lunar base in the future - BEAM UP SCOTTY! WOOHOOO!

    Its interesting stuff, what's out there. They had found a planet that is very similar to Earth it looks, its much bigger, and has its own sun. However its extremely far away.

    The water is from urinals the martians installed for their trips to colonize the earth. They called it a "rest area". A few of their vermin escaped from their infested ships when landing on the earth and the vermin became widespread throughout the new habitat. The martians caught the common cold virus which was fatal to their race.

    And that's how humans populated the earth.

    I saw that too, on the History channel. I think the planet is bigger than Jupiter, our solar systems largest planet.

    They are called "exoplanets" and there are dozens found. I was reading in "Astronomy" last night that one of them is about 4 times the size of Jupiter and orbiting its star only a couple million miles away. They are at a loss (in our solar system Mercury is 36 million miles away from Sol) as to why this huge planet hasn't crashed into the star....... and another exoplanet that has a density 1/4 that of Jupiter (which is far, far less dense than the Earth). So much SOOOOOO much to learn.

    Okay, I'll fess up. I had to take a whizz on my last little trip around the block, and it seemed nice and isolated. What??? Don't look at me that way -- I'm pee-shy.

    Well instead of worrying about water on the bloody moon why don't we all preserve it here on earth?

    Are you suggesting we ship you off to the moon .. to an isolated area without cameras so can take a whizz? ... a new source of water on the
    moon, courtesy of Zach....

    Actually scientists now refer to the 7th planet from the sun as "URanas
    rather than the old name which was "youranus"........

    Actually the planet has nothing on it, except a small rocky core and alot of
    methane.. (ick) methane from Uranus? LOL
