Scientists discover water ice on moon’s surface. Here’s why that’s big news.

The water could provide a critical resource for future expeditions.

For the first time, scientists have found what they say is definitive evidence of water ice on the surface of the moon.

The discovery suggests that future lunar expeditions might have a readily available source of water that would make it easier “to explore and even stay on the moon,” officials at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory said in a statement Tuesday about the discovery.

The ice was detected at the darkest, coldest regions of the moon’s north and south poles.
