"NASA's LCROSS probe discovered beds of water ice at the lunar south pole when it impacted the moon last month, mission scientists announced Friday. " according to an MSNBC article..
What the article didn't mention and NASA failed to notice was that water on the moon is not the major story here.
Apparently the LCROSS probe made a direct hit on the home of the man in the moon. It appears that he lives underground and that his home suffered some damage.
If you look dead center on the 10km magnification of the NASA photograph, you will notice that he is peering up at us out of the hole made in his cave. His head is tilted at about a 45 degree angle to our left. He has dark hair and a receding hairline. One of his eyes (on our left) is darkened. The other is white with the pupil barely visible. His nose is mostly hidden behind the rock. Not sure, but he may be steadying himself with his left hand on the rocks in front of him, as I think I see three fingers (on our right) grasping the top of the rock.
Before we consider using the limited water at that location on the moon for future missions, we should enter into negotiations with him and any other residents before assuming it belongs to us.
