Is there water in moon rock?

Question asked by: knowitall

No! The tests on moon rock that has reached earth, either from meteorites or from rock brought back by astronauts, have brought a new meaning to the word dry!

Any water there was would have escaped long, long ago. This has impacted the number of minerals possible on the moon - around 100 compared to the thousands on earth where water has enabled much more complexity.
