NASA finds thin belt of water molecules on the Moon’s surface

There may not be any bat people on the Moon’s surface, but scientists have found the remains of a likely reservoir. A few weeks ago NASA bombarded the moon’s south pole with spent rockets full of sensors. What water they found acts nothing like how water does on Earth.

From Science:

“None of the moon’s water is ever liquid. Water in its reservoirs can be imperceptibly sparse, flows into its reservoirs may proceed a few molecules at a time, and none may ever leave.”

Even more curious, the molecules seem to cluster around a thin belt around the moon’s surface instead of forming large pockets.

Still not enough water for Vespertilio homo to thrive there, but we’ll keep looking. After all that’s the whole point of this exercise isn’t it?
