Indian lunar spacecraft reveals indigenous water from inside moon

Scientists using a NASA instrument aboard an Indian spacecraft have discovered signs of water native to the moon – not brought from far away, but water that must have been locked beneath the lunar crust since its birth.

The discovery by the ill-fated Chandrayaan-1 lunar probe represents the first time researchers have found signs of native water remotely. The results, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, offer further evidence that the moon has its own indigenous source of water.
