The water should have sublimated off, but a small atmosphere may have kept it in place.
The atmosphere of the Moon is atmosphere only technicaly, but in fact it is vacuum with a few atoms here and there. Definately not enough to keep water from sublimating. Water on the Moon may have survived underground, or in permanently shadowed craters (as LCROSS impact has showed).
Not to be a stickler or anything, but shade doesn't have anything to do with sublimation. When you put ice cubes in the freezer, there is no sunlight, no light of any kind, but the ice cubes still shrink. That shrinking is sublimation.
The moon was created by an explosion of matter from of the Earth's interior, where it formed in a runaway uranium fission georeactor at the boundary between the core and mantle according to a radical theory by Rob de Meijer of the University of the Western Cape in South Africa and Wim van Westrenem of VU University Amsterdam.
The georeactor is a theory first proposed by geologist Marvin Hendron that a nuclear fission reactor may exist at the Earth's core and serves as the energy source for the geomagnetic field. Hendron earlier suggested the existence of fission reactors at the core of the large gas planets -Jupiter and Saturn.

The orbit of the moon is unusual as well. We always see the same face, its rotation perfectly in sync with the earth. Coincidence?
Near perfect circular orbit, same side always facing earth.

And it just exactly covers the sun during an eclipse, as seen from the ground.

They reminded me what the moon would look like if it had been dragged across the universe and heated up in the atmosphere of other planets and been bombarded by asteroid fields along the way. Sure, its a way out theory but this is ATS.
