Debate Round No. 1


Besides Earth, which other celestial object is known to contain water?



Trick question. More than one body contains water. Water is defined as H2O (two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom in a molecule) in either a solid, liquid, or gaseous form.

The moon: On 24 September 2009 Science magazine reported that the Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M3) on India's Chandrayaan-1 had detected water on the Moon.[1][2]

Mars: On July 28, 2005, the European Space Agency announced the existence of a crater partially filled with frozen water;some then interpreted the discovery as an "ice lake".Images of the crater, taken by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on board the European Space Agency's Mars Express spacecraft, clearly show a broad sheet of ice in the bottom of an unnamed crater located on Vastitas Borealis, a broad plain that covers much of Mars' far northern latitudes, at approximately 70.5° North and 103° East. The crater is 35 km wide and about 2 km deep.[3][4][5]

Europa: ...scientists studying data from NASA's Galileo probe have discovered what appears to be a body of liquid water the volume of the North American Great Lakes locked inside the icy shell of Jupiter’s moon Europa.[6]

Triton: A Voyager 2 flyby in 1989 offered a quick peak at the satellite, and revealed a surface composition comprised mainly of water ice.[7]

I would like for my opponent to be more specific in his questions and not ask for only one answers to a question where many are available.

I next take 5th Grade Aeronautics.
