I was really excited to learn that NASA had confirmed water on the moon.

Interesting, I had never heard of that one. Well I guess that makes it slightly less awesome, but none the less now NASA knows there is water on the moon. :smile:

Chandrayaan-1 carried some Nasa instruments along with ESA ones.
it supposedly also only cost $80M, but that probably doesn't include the foreign instrument costs

The Indian spacecraft detected a few hundred mL's of water scattered around the area of a football field. LCROSS threw up 100 kg of water, and it didn't even make a particularly big plume.
