The investigation revealed that meteorites should only penetrate a few centimeters to release water. This water can potentially be achieved by human researchers or colonizers. The study was published in the journal Nature Geoscience.
Speaking about CNN Mehdi Benn, who works at the NASA Space Flight Center in Goddard, said the water is spreading "globally" on the moon.
Scientists used data from the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer, which is orbiting the moon for the study.
Specialists from Johns Hopkins University and Maryland-Baltimore University were assisted by NASA.
The existence of water on the moon was confirmed by previous lunar probes, such as Cassini and Deep Impact.

However, the research of meteorites shows that it can be separated naturally from the soil.
However, compared to Earth, the moon is very dry.
A metric tone of the lunar soil and rock contains only 16 ounces of water.
NASA hopes to re-launch the astronauts on the moon in 2028.

Speaking in Washington last month, NASA administrator Jim Bridgestone said: "This time we go to the moon we will stay.
"We do not return to the moon to leave flags and feet, and then we will not return for another 50 years.
"We will go sustainable."
If the Moon's launch is successful, NASA plans to send astronauts to Mars.
