Moon bounce

A year ago had you asked anyone, even many scientists, whether there was water on the moon the answer would have been no and the questioner would have been considered questionable.

Now data show water on moon.

There are lots of things we don't "know." Or only a few people know, and most people don't believe them. Most important things, especially in science, are initially scorned. That didn't make those ideas wrong - there was water on the moon all the time - but it should make us all a bit humbler.

And yes, I am thinking of a bunch of stuff that I "know" and try to help others see. I'm also thinking of what moon water I'm missing. What does it take to turn skepticism to belief, or knock a belief out of place?
