Abundant water is highly likely to exist in the form of ice under Oceanus Procellarum, a lunar mare known as “moon rabbit” in Japan, a Japanese research team has said.

Although it was long thought that there was little water on the moon, recent observations by lunar orbiters have found that Earth’s satellite holds abundant water in polar areas.
