Nasa's plans to establish a human outpost on the moon have received a surprise boost following the discovery of large amounts of water on its surface.

Three spacecraft detected a thin sheen of water locked up in the first few millimetres of lunar soil that could be extracted and used to sustain astronauts on expeditions to our nearest celestial neighbour.

Instruments aboard the spacecraft suggest that a cubic metre of soil on the lunar surface could hold around a litre of water.

The discovery of water on the moon will bolster Nasa's long-term goal of establishing a permanently crewed outpost there. The space agency is developing a new generation of rockets and crew capsules capable of reaching the moon which are due to fly within five years of the space shuttle fleet being retired next year.

Pretty awesome if you ask me. How long before we see the first Moonbase up and running? (Assuming the Nazis/Soviets/Cybermen etc didn't get there first!)

It would be so much better if they discovered the moon really is made of cheese.

Why would any species want to live on a satellite?

Or maybe we live on the satellite!

There's a special sex move I do called the Charizard.
It's where you light the girls pubes, then put it out with your cum and run around the room flapping your arms screaming, "You don't have enough badges to train me!"

I second this motion.

More water on celestial bodies please!

And by celestial bodies I mean really hot women.

really? water on the moon. thats all that it is.
and to correct you. the moon could support terrestrial life(at least with the water)
as far as 'aliens' go, they could technically live off of nothing, because who's to say that 'alien' life needs oxygen or water or any of that?
maybe 'aliens' need liquid nitrogen to live. who knows.

it be weird saying its looks like a full earth tonight. more weirder saying its a crescent earth.

There'd have to be an abundance of liquid nitrogen on their home planet though, or they wouldn't be able to sustain life.

that was kind of implied when I said that. I was just trying to make a point, not go into detail about it. lol.

Bio-domes ect. will keep them alive.

They will be forced to look upon Earth that was, and remember the day the world died.

"I wish I were home right now" said lisa, staring at the blue marble.
<But. You are home Lisa, this is where you belong>
The voices were getting worse, Lisa had noticed this ever since the incident. She stared into the dark remains of what was and sighed.
<You can't ignore me forever Lisa, one day you will cave to my demands.>


Lisa never came home that night. All because of BrianApocalypse.


Fuck you, Brian.
