NASA confirmed water found on moon, skiing on the moon a possibility

Earlier today, NASA reported that they indeed found water on the moon. And not just a little puddle either. Scientist Anthony Colaprete at a midday news conference said: “I’m here today to tell you that indeed, yes, we found water. And we didn’t find just a little bit; we found a significant amount.” That amount is about 12 two-gallon buckets full. So, I guess 24 gallons…

NASA said “If the water that was formed or deposited is billions of years old, these polar cold traps could hold a key to the history and evolution of the solar system, much as an ice core sample taken on Earth reveals ancient data.”

That’s cool and all, but I’m more interested in the possibility of skiing on the moon. I’m no scientist, and I’m not the sharpest guy either, but when I hear water, I think ice and snow. And you know what I hear when I think snow. Can we get some snowmaking guns up on the moon? Wouldn’t that be worth another $80 mil? Who’s with me!

And the call is going into NASA right…now!
