Oxygen on the moon? Wouldn't surprise me.

NASA says that because we are looking at the moon in a new light that oxygen may be there. I just watched Red Planet last night. It's like deja vu al over the place. In the movie NASA couldn't find any oxygen on Mars either.

"NASA hosts a news conference at 1 p.m. EDT, Wednesday, Oct. 19, to discuss new Hubble Space Telescope images of the moon’s surface in ultraviolet light. The press conference is in NASA's auditorium, 300 E Street S.W., Washington.

Using Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys, preliminary assessments suggest a newly discovered abundance of titanium and iron oxides. They may be sources of oxygen and a potential resource for human exploration."
