Will the next astronauts on the moon go swimming?

With all of that water discovered will it be like a beach vacation?

    Sure, because some water ice in a shadowed crater on the moon with no atmosphere is just like a sunny day on a beach with air to breath.

    "All that water" is a bit misleading... If you compare a the same area size of the Sahara and the lunar surface, lit by the sun - the Sahara has about 100 times the amount of water. 

    From: https://www.nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-s-sofia-di...

    "As a comparison, the Sahara desert has 100 times the amount of water than what SOFIA detected in the lunar soil. Despite the small amounts, the discovery raises new questions about how water is created and how it persists on the harsh, airless lunar surface."

    Besides - without a certified lifeguard, swimming is prohibited.

    Yes, may be having swimming in the sea under the full moon.

    Plenty of water here on Earth. I am perplexed as to why anyone would go ga-ga over any of it on the moon. Just another example of the nutty side of astronomy.

    Isn’t it ice though. So maybe they’ll go ice skating or play hockey.
