Scientists at Brown University say there may be water beneath the moon’s surface.
By analyzing satellite images, the scientists found evidence of water trapped in “glass beads” in ancient ash and rocks that volcanoes spewed across the surface of the moon.
They think that since nearly all of the volcanic deposits have water in them that means the inside of the moon must be wet, and that in future missions to the moon scientists could extract the water.
An article from earlier in May reported on a meteorite that traveled from the moon and was discovered in northwest Africa. It contains a mineral that scientists say needs water to be produced, Space.com reported.
