Universe Today – Building Bricks on the Moon From Lunar Dust
ESA scientists have been using Moon dust simulants harvested right here on Earth. As Aiden explained, regolith on both Earth and the Moon are the product of volcanism and are basically basaltic material made up of silicates.

Universe Today – There are so Many Water-Worlds Out There
Many of the confirmed exoplanets that are between two to four times the size of Earth may in fact be water worlds. On these planets, roughly 50% of the mass consists of water, whereas water makes up just 0.2% of the Earth’s mass. About 35% of all known exoplanets that are larger than Earth should be water-rich.
