112. ... what?
You actually think the search for water on the Moon has something to do with water shortages on Earth?

Look, we hope there's water on the moon because water is too heavy to transport, and necessary to sustain human life. If we want to do anything long term on the Moon, it will be made much more feasible if water is already present.
