        Southern California wants that Moon water...and they want it NOW!

          See I don't think it means any more than just that.
          The two reasons for trying to find water is to find signs of life, or possibly find a planet capable for our lives. There are absolutely no other signs of possible life, and I doubt it could support us, there is no atmosphere, low gravity, and different soil then ours, which would make it hard to grow vegetation.

          So all this means is we know there is water on the moon, and that's about it.

            Yep. Humankind would be traveling on thin ice if it attempted to sustain a colony on the moon.

                Should taste out of this world.

                  Just imagine how expensive that water would be, seeing as how we would have to pay for a craft to travel there and back.

                    They'd also have to melt it before puting it in a bottle. :O

                      It would probably melt between leaving the moon, and landing on the earth.

                        Would someone please let me know when they find gin, or good single-malt scotch on the moon? That would probably make the trip more worthwhile.

                          Oh it means a hugely great deal more than just that...

                          Water on the moon is important because it means we don't have to take as much with us when we go. Yes, NASA wanted to know if the theories about permanent ice fields in craters that were always dark were true. Turns out they are. Now all the have to do is put a base near one and hey presto... source of water taken care of. Couple that with NASA's incredible urine recycling capabilities and water is no longer an issue.

                          Water on the moon is also important because it tells us something about the history of the solar system. The moon wasn't always there. Long ago an object roughly the size of Mars whacked into the Earth and sheared off our crust and shattered the impactor. Earth gained a ring out of this and over the next little bit this ring condensed into the moon. This happened during a time when there was little to no water on Earth. Finding water on the moon means that it got heavily bombarded by the same water bearing comets that Earth did and underwent some mild molten material outgassing. Since there is no atmosphere things get preserved VERY well on the moon, so getting an ice core from these ice fields would be incalculably important for science.

                          Finding water on the moon shows that water ice can survive in some pretty inhospitable extremes and widens the range of places we now know we can find it. Just becuse a planet can't support life now, doesn't mean it wasn't able to in the past. Just look at Mars which we know had a much thicker atmosphere and liquid water at some point in its history. They have now found pure water ice on Mars, burried just below the surface soil. Subsurface permafrost.

                          This is, in all honesty, one of the coolest discoveries ever and has many more implications that I've mentioned here.

                          Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

                              Moon Water.

                              Tastes Great.

                              Less Filling.
