    Could this be the beginning of the next giant leap for humankind – after scientists at the US space agency Nasa said they’d found unambiguous evidence of water on sunlit parts of the moon’s surface? It’s raised hopes that future space exploration could be transformed, once more research has been carried out into the water deposits. It could even enable a permanent base on the moon, making a human mission to Mars a real possibility.
