(WCJB)-- Water or H2O can be made on the moon.

NASA scientists found that when solar wind rains down the lunar surface at a certain speed. The particles can interact to make hydrogen and oxygen the two components of water.

Nasa calls the surface of the moon a "chemical factory" after the discovery. They say every rock has the potential to make water.

They used a computer program to simulate how water could be created. It's part of ongoing efforts to send humans to the moon to establish a permanent home there.
