Water on the Moon Found! | Moon Logo @ Google

Findings about ice on the moon has been verified. Water is said to exist on the moon but in very small quantities. According to researchers, the top layer of the lunar surface would hold about 32 ounces of water.

"If the water molecules are as mobile as we think they are — even a fraction of them — they provide a mechanism for getting water to those permanently shadowed craters," told the planetary geologist Carle Pieters of Brown University. "This opens a whole new avenue [of lunar research], but we have to understand the physics of it to utilize it."

This might lead to the possibility of future lunar bases, which can be a potential source of drinking water and fuel.
