In the article, "Water on the moon," by NASA it described the possibilities of having lunar stations because scientists may be able to harvest water from the lunar surface. The article suggested there could be water on the moon brought from asteroids! This really surprised me because I have never heard of asteroids carrying anything other than rocks. Another theory is that solar winds may bring chemicals to create hydrogen; all the astronauts would have to do then is combine that with oxygen to create H2O or water. I think the possibilities are endless of what we can do on the moon if there is water readily available, but I'm not the only one who thinks that, NASA has invested a quarter million dollars into this research! Water on the moon was a pretty cool thing to imagine, and now it may be a reality.
