Astronauts may be able to  on the moon

drink water from volcanoes

Volcanoes may have

 deposited sheets of ice on the lunar surface, according to new research.

New research from the University

 of Colorado Boulder shows that volcanoes may have deposited sheets of ice on the surface of the moon up to hundreds of feet thick.

The discovery could 

have major benefits for astronauts as they will require water to drink and for rocket fuel.

The research, published in the

peer-reviewed Planetary Science Journal, used computer simulations to simulate the lunar surface conditions before life on Earth.

 It found that

volcanoes spewed water vapor that formed ice on the moon, which still be in lunar craters.

The study adds

 to increasing evidence that there may be more water on the moon than previously believed.
