I was found this article discussing the moon plume created by the Centaur rocket. The plume, which was 6 to 8 Kilometers high was found to contain mercury and Iron, but no sign of water.


In the meantime, far-ultraviolet spectra taken by another craft, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, as it flew over the impact site shows no obvious signs of water. Instead, the spectra show signs of what may be iron and mercury, says Gladstone, a mission scientist.




So, given this discovery, does this mean that any plans to send a maned mission to the moon and/or construction of an outpost on the moon will be scrapped? Is this possibly NASA propaganda? What do you all think?

There is water up there and man has been up there since last DISCLOSED why hide so much basically answeres the question itself.

Sooo... India's mission, which says there is water up there, was just a bunch of BS? (end sarcasm mode). What is NASA trying to prove? First, it's water and all sorts of fancy names for water, now it's just iron and mercury. This honestly sounds like a 'nothing to see here- move along folks' moment, while they try to cover up a) their blowfully bad 'moon impact', using a pic of the moon and some weird looking infra red imagery, B) trying to discredit the Indian moon mission....

NASA just gets weirder, more retarded, and just plain dodgier every day....

When NASA's Clementine spacecraft found the first signs of water back in 1994, and when NASA's Lunar Prospector in 1998 confirmed this, what they actually found was high levels of hydrogen (not "water" specifically). However, most scientists agree that the high levels of hydrogen definitely indicates water -- but it should be noted that some scientists disagree with that analysis, and the presence of water is still being questioned by some.

The Lunar Prospector was also impacted into the South Pole of the Moon (just like LCROSS) in 1999 looking for signs of water, but it found none.

The Indian probe Chandrayaan-1 impacted a probe into the south pole looking for water this past year. They also sensed hydrogen in the ensuing ejecta plume, and it was this hydrogen that is being considered water -- and it very well may be water.

It's also extremely possible that the water exists, but the LCROSS Centaur rocket impacted in a spot that has none.
