Scientists Discover Water On The Moon

Scientists recently found out there is 100 times more water on the moon than they thought there was.

Scientists discovered the water when they looked at some pieces of moon rock.

They found water in tiny samples of magma, which was trapped in crystal. Magma is a rock made from cooled lava.

Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield told Teaching Kids the News that the water is a very valuable discovery.

“It’s like finding diamonds or gold in a remote frontier,” Hadfield said.

Saying Good-bye To Oprah (For Now)

Last week, millions of people around the world said farewell to The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Oprah, one of the world’s best-known celebrities, aired the very last episode of her show on May 25.

The Oprah Winfrey Show was on TV every week day for 25 years. That is longer than most talk shows in the United States.

Oprah became famous as the host of The Oprah Winfrey Show. Her show aired in 145 countries, so she isn’t just famous in the U.S. and Canada.

Both celebrities and non-celebrities felt comfortable talking to Oprah, sometimes about emotional or difficult things.

Oprah spoke to ordinary people with interesting stories. She spoke to people who had overcome hard things in life, like accidents or unhappy families.
