    I don't know how they can detect hydrogen and yet not detect something as common/simple as water.

    I wonder how they scan things..............sound just like Star Trek - very cool.

    Hydrogen is the only element that has no neutrons in it. All other elements are at least about 50/50 neutrons/protons, give or take. There might not be much wind up there...

    Oh Yipster, Yipster... why did you have to mention it. You realise you've now opened up a whole new area for debate on power or sail; the virtues of single or mono hulls on the moon; transom or double enders; the perfect moon cruising yacht. All those cranks (excepting you and I) will start crawling out of the woodwork/fiberglass/or steel. :D

    Come on guys, you're "Yank bashing" again - although there is probably some jealousy there. After all, we became successful in business (through the efforts of Fisk, Gould, Morgan, Rockefeller, et all) and thereby managed to convince the world that they should invest all their monies in the USA. Now, no group of countries dares to let us "go down the tube" - they'd all be bankrupt in no time. Yeah, let the world support the USA. And they say "colonials" aren't smart. :D

    Yank bashing -us? to use the quote "you ain't heard nothing yet!" Was led to believe that was the whole reason for your existance, now that we've stopped colonising you! (Ok so some of was forced, but Europe had to send their unwanted and unwashed somewhere!)

    Dash it all Walrus - you've fallen into his trap...You're quoting an American (albiet one with a split personality...perhaps a national trait) Al Jolson in the 'Jazz Singer'.
    Why not Lord Illingworth's response, in Oscar Wilde's 'Woman of no Importance' to the question "And where do Americans go when they die ?" "Why, back to America of course...."
    Or: "The youth of America is their oldest tradition...."
    And perhaps we should we point out that neither Morgan, nor Rockefeller were American born. Though, as a 'new' Australian I can't help feeling guilty that we imposed Rupert Murdoch on them.... :D :D :D :D

    Rupert Murdoch!?! My friend he’s a welcomed relief to the eternal agony bestowed upon us by Rod Stewart and all those frenzied, Welwick hosts of paid tv advertisements promoting the latest in cooking utensils from Australia.
