NASA-Water on the Moon. How did Joseph and Brigham already know?

NASA has found water on the moon. Now we know how the Quakers have been surviving.

Today on Fox News scientist Michio Kaku discussed the recent discoveries of NASA’s Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS). Launched on June 18th for an October 9th impact in the Cabeus crater, it appears the findings of the LCROSS mission confirms water on the moon. Just above the moon’s surface the LCROSS separated from the rocket booster which crashed into the Cabeus crater sending a debris plume more than six miles high; LCROSS then passed through the plume analyzing the debris field. The impact and subsequent analysis of the debris plume of the booster rocket and secondary analysis by earth instruments of LCROSS impacting the crater, have shown a 1% composition of water, in the form of ice crystals, of the lunar surface.
Over 150 years ago, the Founding Prophet of the Mormon Church, Joseph Smith, revealed to those of us without prophetic powers, that the moon was inhabited by people dressed like Quakers; now we know how these people have been getting their water. NASA’s work has just begun though, because Brigham Young, also a man whom Mormonism said had prophetic powers, said the sun was also inhabited. I’m wondering how the sun inhabitants keep their water from boiling.

The following quotes apply:

“Astronomers and philosophers have, from time almost immemorial until very recently, asserted that the moon was uninhabited, that it had no atmosphere, etc. But recent discoveries through the means of powerful telescopes, have given scientists a doubt or two upon the old theory.
“Nearly all the great discoveries of men in the last half century have, in one way or another, either directly or indirectly, contributed to prove Joseph Smith to be a Prophet.
“As far back as 1837, I know that he said the MOON WAS INHABITED by men and women the same as this earth, and that they lived to a greater age then we do, that they live generally to near the age of 1,000 years.
“He described the men as averaging near six feet in height, and dressing quite informally in something near the Quaker style.
“In my Patriarchal blessing, given by the father of Joseph the Prophet, in Kirkland, 1837, I was told that I should preach the gospel before I was 21 years of age; that I should preach the gospel to the inhabitants upon the islands of the sea, and to the INHABITANTS OF THE MOON, even the planet you can now behold with your eyes.”1 [emphasis mine]

“The INHABITANTS OF THE MOON are more of a uniform size than the inhabitants of earth, being about 6 feet in height.
“They dress very much like the Quaker style and are quite general in style, or fashion of dress.
“They live to be very old; coming generally, near a thousand years.
“This is the description of them as GIVEN BY JOSEPH THE SEER, and he could ‘See’ whatever he asked the father in the name of Jesus to see.”2 [emphasis mine]

“Who can tell us of the INHABITANTS of this little planet that shines of an evening called the MOON?...when you inquire about the INHABITANTS of that sphere you find that the most learned are as ignorant in regard to them as the ignorant of their fellows. So it is in regard to the INHABITANTS OF THE SUN. Do you think it is inhabited? I rather think it is. Do you think there is any life there? NO QUESTION OF IT; IT WAS NOT MADE IN VAIN.”3 [emphasis mine]
