The lunar prospector then found high hydrogen levels on the moon's poles.
They expect to refine their maps with new elemental data produced by the Lunar Prospector spacecraft.
NASA'S modest Lunar Prospector mission in 1997 didn't carry a camera, though its detectors provided a coarse map of the moon's elemental composition.
Five years ago Nasa's Lunar Prospector spacecraft found evidence of large amounts of water ice in deep polar craters that never see sunlight.
Observations of the moon by the spacecraft Lunar Prospector last year made scientists think there might be water ice hidden away at the bottom of some of the moon's deep, dark asteroid-impact craters.
On July 31, the US brazenly violated the 1979 Moon Treaty by crashing NASA's Lunar Prospector into the Moon's South Pole.
The few missiles sent moonward since Apollo have been small, automated probes--the most recent mission was a little 350-pound craft called Lunar Prospector that culminated its mission August 31 in a deliberate nosedive into the lunar south pole.
