Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
They found water on the moon!

If future investigations find the quantities to be particularly large, this water could become a useful resource for any astronauts who might base themselves at the lunar poles.
"It can be used for drinking water," said Mike Wargo, Nasa's chief lunar scientist for exploration systems.
"You can break it down and have breathable air for crews. But also, if you have significant quantities of this stuff, you have the constituents of one of the most potent rocket fuels - oxygen and hydrogen."
Is this the first step in starting the colonization of space? First, our moon, and from there perhaps the rest of the solar system? Will we see a moon base in the next 20 years? 30? Within our lifetime?
While there may not be enough water for anything substantial, the opposite could also be true.
I suspect we'll have a military base there first, though something like the I.S.S would be ideal, a co-operative effort.
