Is that a reference to Star Wars, or to the Finnish 2012 film Iron Sky with actual nazis (as opposed to the empire/first order) having a base on the dark side of the moon, being isolated there since the 40ies?

No, it's a reference to the actual Moon Nazis, sheeple.

I mean, this is on the Science Channel, so it MUST be real.

Don't be ridiculous, the Moon Nazis were defeated years ago in a mahjong game of the highest stakes imaginable.

The stakes were so high, they were on the moon.

But even higher; atop a two mile high tower on the far side of the moon, on the back of a stoned heifer that nearly OD'd.

Clearly the Moon Nazis were the magma man partisans who espoused the political ideology that the denizens in the center of the moon are more desirable than the supposedly less civilized crater-dwellers.

If we subscribe to flat moon theory, it makes sense as to how the moon nazis haven't been able to return from their banishment to the dark side of the moon yet

They tried to hide from observation on the back of the moon but fell off the other side

Here's that moon news: https://www.washingtonpost.com/science/2020/10/26/water-on-the-moon/

Per the web address, (signs of) water on the moon.

Quote
There is water on the moon’s surface and ice may be widespread in its many shadows, according to a pair of studies published Monday in the journal Nature Astronomy. The research confirms long-standing theories about the existence of lunar water that could someday enable astronauts to live there for extended periods.

Oh, and here are links to the actual published articles: one, and two.

To reference a bit of article (that I thought I'd put in my paste-buffer, to quote, but apparently not), unless it's being replenished, of course it's likely to be stable (especially statically so).

There's a lot of water in many of the smaller 'rocks' out there, and clearly was a whole lot more . While there's probably re-escape of water whose original dirty-snowball impacted the Moon, there's a high chance that masses of it spattered into dark bluffs, got overtopped by crater-gouged regolith, etc...Comparative dryness might be worth talking about, but I'm not sure that, once we got past the simpler views of space, the 'dry Moon' hypothesis ever (NPI!) held water.
