WASHINGTON, July 9, 2008 (Reuters) — Tiny green and orange glass balls brought back from the moon nearly 40 years ago by astronauts show evidence that water existed there from the very beginning, scientists reported on Wednesday.
They used a new method of analyzing elements in the lunar sand samples to show strong evidence of water, dating back 3 billion years.
Their study, published in the journal Nature, could support evidence that water persists in shadowed craters on the moon's surface -- and that the water could be native to the moon and not carried there by comets.
