Are there large amounts of water on the moon?

    Good question.  According to recent research done by Brown University, it does appear that there is an incredible amount of water in the Moon’s mantle, almost as much as the Earth’s upper mantle contains.  So, depending on what data is collected, we may be looking at ocean-worthy amounts of water rather than just polar ice.

    This has been answered frequently, including quite recently. Basically, it depends on what you mean by “a lot”. And most of the water in the mantle is not liquid, free water. See previous answers and blog.

    The NASA-funded study led by a research team from Brown University suggests that the moon may contain more water in the lunar mantle than scientists had suspected. However, this water was found in molten moon rock that had become trapped in crystals and turning into a glass-like material.
