NASA Discovery: Moon Holds Water

The Earth as Seen from the MoonScientists have long speculated about significant quantities of hydrogen detected in the polar regions of our moon. Where did it come from? Were the moon's poles once covered in ice, as are our own? If so, is any of that water still present?
