There's a lot of buzz because it was announced at the AGU meeting that the moon's lava flows suggest there's some water in the lunar mantle. Does this prove that I am wrong and there truly are accessible resources on the moon... other than small deposits of ice at the poles?

Sorry. The moon has lots of good stuff. But almost none of it is FRACTIONATED or separated into highly concentrated ores. On Earth this mostly happened from geo processes, especially water streams above and below ground. In asteroids it happened because a proto planet broke up. Nothing like such processes happened on the moon. If there is mantle water, it is in parts per million and you’d need to dig very deep, then crush and melt the rock. Good luck with that.

Do NOT use this app!
Grant Williamson‏ tweeted:
This is probably the most potentially deadly app I've ever seen
In the thread there are people who have collected mushrooms for 35 years and they say this app is dangerous. There are too many lethal mushrooms that the app cannot distinguish from edible ones.

And as a nasty side effect, the app store is only going to have positive reviews. Because the negative reviewers will be dead.
