The lunar dust settles, but no water

AP: "A preliminary review of data from the Hubble Space Telescope indicated no signs of water in the debris viewed from the blast..."

Also: "other experts also faulted NASA for overhyping the mission, not being honest with the public about the images being a longshot."

As the BBC noted:

However, live pictures of an expected plume of debris failed to materialise.

And, no, a post titled First clown in space hosts show to save Earth's water was not about LCROSS, short for Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite and pronounced L-Cross.
