Water discovered in Apollo lunar rocks may challenge theory of moon’s origin

Water in the moon? It seems so.

According to a new study, the long accepted theory of how the moon was formed may have to be reexamined.

A recent study has revealed that the interior of the moon held water early in its lunar history. Some scientists speculate this new information may clash with the current explanation for how the moon was formed.
