According to this there is
Could this change things in the future? And even though this is a minor amount, do you think this is further evidence that on day the moon could support life to some degree? Let me know what you think.
the mass of the moon isn't heavy enough to support an atmosphere by itself. i think that they say the use of superheavy gases could help to bulk up the moon, though. needless to say, it's not going to happen for a long time. for the water to be usable, it'd need to be defrosted, which requires an atmosphere to separate itself from the vacuum of space.
Water is cool, and might help moon bases, but without an atmosphere, it doesnt do much on its own.
Too bad we're not going to be the one building the bases.
No! I'm Spamacus!

Stick a few solar panels on the moon and it could make rocket fuel a much more competitive choice in the future.
China would be more likely now that things have gone downhill here.
This is somewhat old news actually. It was discovered when the LCROSS mission went to the moon. However it's still good to bring this up. Keep people interested in space.
Pretty damn cool. Of course there are problems but it will probably help in the future at some point.
