Oxidane is water for pedants.
It’s been assumed for quite a long time that there is water on the Moon. Recently, some observations show that this is literally true.
An important part of future lunar exploration is using the resources that are there. Water is heave and we don’t want to have to carry it all the way up there.
The most recent manned Moon mission was in 1972 and they had to take their own water which was no small part of the challenge of going there.
Even though there may be water in the sunbathed areas of the Moon, radiation from the sun is still a huge concern.
It would be kinda funny if Trump wanted to make a Space Navy because of this news.
None of this really changes any of the plans to get people back on the Moon by 2024.
