    Seriously, pretty cool.

    Great now why doesnt NASA invent a quarter million mile long straw so we can put that water to some use.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Well, it's more like building an outpost near the water supplies.

    Getting there isn't a problem really, but prolonged stay will require massive amount of research and development before getting all pumped up about it

    It's gonna depend on the form of the found water. Since the collision threw up craptons of crust material, it's impossible to tell whether the water is in the soil or formed an actual frozen lake. All we now know is that there is water in some form. Hopefully there's a lot of it, since it's very expensive to transport it from the Earth. Several tens of thousands of dollars each liter.

    Anyone that would ship water from a moon to a planet 70% covered in the stuff needs to to be slapped.
