Have you read the book Magnificent Desolation?

Have you read the book Carrying the Fire?
There is no atmosphere worth talking about on the Moon. There can be no liquid water on the Moon. I don't have to go there, I can see it with my own eyes and with a telescope. No clouds, no atmosphere.

And your point is?
India announced the discovery of water as soon as they had confirmation from another part of the mission hardware...how is this in any way a negative?
You make it sound like they were holding on to and covering the information...you are thinking of NASA mate...they knew from the 60's about the water...40 years Vs. a few days to tell the world about the water...hmmmm.

You DO realize, that NASA is still, basically a governmental/military organisation?. Hardly "independant" to say the least.

so, at a cost of tens of millions of dollars, they have found water on the moon. Well there is oceans of the stuff right here on earth! What a load of bloody nonsense. As far as "oh we might be able to colonise the moon now" is concerned, well once we have learned to live peacefully on this planet, maybe then think about elsewhere.We can't even get it right on
Just as in the sixties, at a cost of billions, they brought back...... some moon dust. Great.
