Keywords:Lunar Rocks, Water Planet, Isotope Composition

Recent geochemical studies on water isotopes trapped in lunar rock samples are reviewed. From the results of the studies, including the problems recently recognized, we discuss how to maximize the performance in future lunar exploration program, particularly in sample return missions.
