It is confirmed. The Moon has water and plenty of it.

Steve Jobs did a great job in the past decade to be ranked Fortune Magazines CEO of the decade.
It is not the first time that Fortune recognized Jobs as a business genius. On November 27, 2007 Fortune Magazine named Jobs the most powerful person in business (CNN).
I like the way Jobs is portrayed in the article titled The decade of Steve.
Youthful founder gets booted from his company in the 1980s, returns in the 1990s, and in the following decade survives two brushes with death, one securities-law scandal, an also-ran product lineup, and his own often unpleasant demeanor to become the dominant personality in four distinct industries, a billionaire many times over, and CEO of the most valuable company in Silicon Valley.
Some of the notable contributions that Jobs was instrumental in are:
- One of the first commercially successful personal computers (Apple II in 1977).
- First mouse driven graphical interface (Macintosh computer in 1984).
- Desktop publishing
- Laser printer
- Personal computer network
- Successful computer animated feature films (Pixar)
- Highly successful digital music player (iPod in 2001)
- Online music store (iTunes in 2003)
- Highly successful smart-phone (iPhone in 2007)
Congratulation to the magician of the digital world, Steve Jobs!
