Lunar hydrogen deposits could be mined to produce water and rocket fuel if they are sufficiently abundant. Recent observations by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft indicate these deposits may be slightly more abundant on crater slopes in the southern hemisphere that face the lunar South Pole.
