    but NASA claims its they who found water in moon. See this.

    "NASA finds ice on the moon and on Mars"
    "The U.S. space agency NASA said its Moon Mineralogy Mapper, or M3, found water molecules all over the moon's surface. The M3 instrument was carried there last October by the Indian Space Research Organization's Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft -- India's first space mission."

    Wow all that money that went into it which could have done better investment in infrastructure etc to find water . . So they are going to open up some bottling factory out there ha . . If they could just provide good drinking water in various rural areas it would have been better i guess . . I see just waste of money here . . I d rate building bombs better than going to moon what is the use to us . .

    How about testing some nuclear weapons and test firing some ICBMs!!! IMO finding water on moon doesn't make any fscking sense. China is flaring its nostrils and we are trying to find water on moon :x. What an epic waste!!!

    chill guys...

    americans and soviets started their space race in cold war... and suddenly both these guys come up with ICBM .... the space race was just to hide their arms race..

    if we can put a satelite in lunar orbit.. i feel ICBM is nothing... [may be our scientist are doing the same like soviets or americans ]

    just my thougts...

    Hmm but still they need to make it cross platform? It should run in Linux and Mac OS X. Does it work there? I would be delighted if it does.

    Chadrayaan like space missions are of importance too. Tomorrow people will claim resources on moon. India has already made a stake in that claim.

    I agree we should have some 1 megaton revised TN device test as Paki and China are doing their tests via N Korea and soon Iran.

    ICBM will be helped by GSLV rocket made by ISRO. An ICBM is essentially a rocket onlee. So go on ISRO and soon we should test ICBM.

    The scientists say that there is a fairly small amount of water on the Moon but this is how Star News were going about 'chaand par bhari matra me paani khoja!!!'.

    Sorry to spoil the party but what is its relevance? Water on moon? What good is that gonna do. I'm more interested in extraterrestrial life and that is what most of the people are interested in. They should concentrate more on that than finding mere litres of water on the Moon. Try finding resources on Mars so that it can be inhabited at some point of time.

    ^^1 liter of jal from 1 tonne of Chandamama Soil.

    Btw water itself is a resource which is very essential for these space travel.

    And even Helium-3 has been found !!!

    Chit bhi hamari pat bhi hamari :D

    Sadly sunny will not be able to see necromophs anytime soon. Your grand sons/daughters will be able to see them.

    I meant something more subtle than necromorphs. BTW congo for that mineral discovery. That's kinda cool!

    IMO, the surest reasons that prove extra-terrestrial intelligent creatures are present in the universe is the fact that they haven't even tried to contact us. Seriously, who would want to be in touch with a race that treats it's home as a garbage can? as a commercial entity? with no consideration whatsoever for other creatures? Anyways, lets leave that debate aside.. :D

    I'd prefer to look at the water findings to add another piece to the puzzle of where the earth/humans evolved from, not to consider the moon to be another source for leaching, though that's what US will look to do. Even if they do colonize the moon, it'll not be for water, but for the mineral rich moon rock.

    Human race ain't that bad. As for space exploration, they should try exploring a planet they found like 2 years back named Super-Earth orbitting a red sun.
    It's in the habitable zone and seems to support life.

    That's what was said about the Titan moon of Saturn. Scientists claimed that it could support life and sent a probe too (Cassini-Huygens). Wonder what happened later on as the first findings revealed that all the "liquid" was actually methane, not water.
