Untill today it was common opinion that the Moon was lacking in hydrated materials, and instead is not so”, said Robert P. Sharp, university professor of Geology and geochemistry of Caltech.

Lunar apatite with terrestrial volatile abundances
“These results imply that the geologic processes on the Moon are able to at least produce a hydrated compound”, has concluded Eiler. “Recent spectroscopic observations of the Moon have shown that the hydrogen is present on its surface, also in ice water form. But in such case the hydrogen could have arrived from comets or with the solar wind. These last results show instead that the hydrogen is there until from the primordial ages of the history of our satellite.”
