Uranium on the moon? More common than you think

A Japanese spacecraft has detected Uranium on the moon.

The Japanese Kaguya spacecraft detected uranium with a gamma-ray spectrometer as part of a projet to map the moon’s surface composition. The finding in theory could mean that nuclear power plants could be built on the moon, or the moon could become an open cut mine.

“We’ve already gotten uranium results, which have never been reported before,” said Robert Reedy, a senior scientist at the Tucson-based Planetary Science Institute told Florida media. “We’re getting more new elements and refining and confirming results found on the old maps.”

Since some creationists don’t believe the moon is lit by the sun, maybe the uranium can now be used to explain it :-)
