Greenwood: Lunar Water May Have Come from Comets

CBS News, and National Geographic among others, report on a presentation by James Greenwood, research associate professor, visiting assistant professor, earth and environmental sciences, at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in Texas where he outlined two stunning scenarios: 1) Water is present in the moon rocks that were collected by the Apollo astronauts; 2) The water did not come from the earth; it may, in fact, have come from comets. Greenwood’s research, using a new technique he pioneered, yielded both bits of information. His study is currently under review by Science. Greenwood’s findings have also been reported in Discover Magazine, The Houston Press New Scientist, Fox News and MSNBC via Space.com, and AOL News,
