NASA to Launch New Lunar Probe

Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite

NASA has announced that they will be launching a new space craft that will search for ice at the moons south pole. The hope is that water ice may be found to exist in the craters that never receive direct sunlight. If this is the case then the pathway to a fully manned moon base might be one step closer to being traveled upon. I hope that I can soon sit with my children in my arms and say, "Look at the moon, if you play your cards right you can live up there."
