A "significant" amount of water has been found on the moon, according to Nasa.

Preliminary data from a moon probe "indicates the mission successfully uncovered water in a permanently shadowed lunar crater," Nasa said.

"The discovery opens a new chapter in our understanding of the moon," it added in a statement.

The data was found after Nasa sent two spacecraft crashing into the lunar surface last month in a dramatic experiment to probe for water.

One rocket slammed into the Cabeus crater, near the moon's southern pole, at around 5,600mph.

It was followed four minutes later by a spacecraft equipped with cameras to record the impact.

Probably the bigger question, in a conspiracy site would be: Why are they letting us know this NOW?
