An anonymous reader writes "A new analysis of lunar samples brought back to the Earth by Apollo astronauts in the early 1970s indicates that the moon's interior may have been a little damp in the early days. While this might not be any 'Moon River,' per see, scientists are baffled about the current beliefs for the planet as deposit's left on the moons surface are typically comets, asteroids and other object that bare no moisture. Yet the findings, published online Sunday in the journal Nature Geoscience, show mounting evidence that the moon once contained some "native" water."
