    A few years ago, they found water on the moon, and the moon's supposed to be made up of just more of the earth's mantle. Could the moon have similar grains of water stored in its own mantle?

    I suppose though that we'll continue to get drinkable water from the water cycle that we have active, cleaning up water pollution, desalinating, and irrigating. This is cool to know, but how it would affect the quality of life for people is usually the first thing to consider. It could be effortful and damaging to the environment to squeeze these water grains out for times of drought, for instance, but now we know the option's there...
