Scientists Detect Earth-Equivalent Amount of Water Within the Moon

Well well well, look what they "recently" discovered. Does anyone believe this is a "new" discovery?
Or am I being a paranoid conspiracy theorist?

There is water inside the moon -- so much, in fact, that in some places it rivals the amount of water found within Earth.
The finding from a scientific team including Brown University comes from the first-ever measurements of water in lunar melt inclusions. Those measurements show that some parts of the lunar mantle have as much water as Earth's upper mantle.
Lunar melt inclusions are tiny globules of molten rock trapped within crystals that are found in volcanic glass deposits formed during explosive eruptions. The new finding, published this week in Science Express, shows lunar magma water contents 100 times higher than previous studies have suggested.

Wow, this is news to me. I knew there was water but not so much of it! Great find!
I'd say it probably is "new", but who knows, its hard to say what they could be covering up, if anything, and why...

They already detected much more than this
, but of course you are a conspiracy theorist
