It looks like the discovery turns out to be that there's more water on the moon than was previously thought. This is according to a news item on the BBC TV this afternoon.
Apparently, the discovery will make it easier to establish a base on the moon and also provide a source of hydrogen as rocket fuel for a Mars mission.
