Few drops of water on the moon

The Times has a front-page story dedicated to an Indian spaceship finding evidence of 'large quantities' of water on the moon.
It goes on to outline the implications for future space exploration.
But before you start thinking about moonbase alpha have a look at the New Scientist's take on the findings.
They say: Harvesting water from a baseball-field-sized swathe of soil might yield "a nice glass of water", according to Carle Pieters of Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, leader of the Chandrayaan-1 instrument team that made the detection.
Detail, details
