Moon Water Found! Someone Make Some Ice Cubes to Put In My Drink!

NASA announced today here that they have officially found water on the moon after crashing LCROSS spacecraft and its booster system into Earth’s satellite’s surface. Said Anthony Colaprete, LCROSS project scientist and principal investigator at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif:

“We are ecstatic. Multiple lines of evidence show water was present in both the high angle vapor plume and the ejecta curtain created by the LCROSS Centaur impact…”

More after the jump.

“The concentration and distribution of water and other substances requires further analysis, but it is safe to say Cabeus holds water.”

Cabeus is the crater where they crashed the sucker…I mean spacecraft, assigned to the ground(moon)breaking task. With the Ares rocket test successful, but the commission studying the new rocket system claiming the program will flounder without a cash influx, what does this information have in store for the human race?

Sure we have lofty goals of establishing moon bases and trekking to Mars and beyond, but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 just came out (to the tune of $310 million in 24hours); who has time for such pointless endeavors?

Mad Kills Yo.
