While many think of the moon as dry, a recent analysis of data collected by NASA's Moon Mineralogy Mapper detected magmatic water on the moon -- that is, water that originates deep below the surface.
The findings, published this week in the journal Nature GeoScience, may help explain not only where the moon got its water but also how our satellite was formed. Read more...

The MOON according to the teachings of Allah (God) Who came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom Praises are due forever, is a part of this Earth. It is as old as the Earth. It was not the idea of the God, who took the MOON from the Earth to make that part a satellite for the Earth. His idea was to force his rule upon the people of our planet and force all to speak the same dialect, which he was not able to do.
Then he decided to destroy all, including the Earth and himself. He went to work by attempting to drill a tube into the Earth’s surface. It must have reached
approximately the center of the earth. Then he filled it with high explosives which we call dynamite. However, it was 30 per cent more powerful than the present dynamite. Then he set it off. The explosion blasted away a piece of our then-Earth, which according to the MOON’s diameter is approximately 2,160 miles or about one-third the size of our planet Earth. That part (MOON) and this part (EARTH) were one planet.
