Being a geek for pure science, I find this fascinating...

I'm guessing it might be a bit cheesy

cool stuff, I saw the vapor story back when they "rodded" it, had no idea it would result in significant discovery.  couple this with the tether experiment from the shuttle TSS-1R mission and you have the means for water and electricity on the moon without taking either with you.  

with water and electricity, many possibilities begin to arise for longer term base-stations.

I'm just glad they didn't crack the moon in half by crashing crap into it.

Yeah and I hope they didn't hurt any Moonies.

Next time they're up there I want to see fireworks shot off from the surface as proof they're there.

As a child in the '60s, I was fascinated by the space program.  I remember watching the Mercury and Gemini launches on our little black and white TV.  I would like to see us return to the moon in my lifetime.

I grew up watching the Apollo missions and have always had a fascination with space exploration.  There is a NASA research facility here in the Cleveland area where they developed the heat-resistant tiles for the space shuttles.  And, a guy I grew up with http://www.jsc.nasa.gov/Bios/htmlbios/good-mt.html ended up becoming an astronaut and did a space walk to repair the Hubbel Space Telescope on a recent shuttle mission.  And I though making my own beer was cool... :-[ ::)

Making your own beer on the moon from moon water would be even cooler.

And I was feeling the squeeze once Wal-Mart marked distilled up to 83 cents...
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

You would only be able to make low gravity beers, though.
