Space Fantasy #36: Discovery Of 50km Cave Raises Twisted Hopes For Human Colonisation Of Moon! What?

Live in a Cave? Oh...cause we all like to live in caves here on earth! You know! just like those desert fathers did back in the day - existing on a piece of bread and doing penance and meditating on the things of God 24/7...

Discovery of 50km cave raises hopes for human colonisation of moon

Scientists have fantasised for centuries about humans colonising the moon. That day may have drawn a little closer after Japan’s space agency said it had discovered an enormous cave beneath the lunar surface that could be turned into an exploration base for astronauts. The discovery, by Japan’s Selenological and Engineering Explorer (Selene) probe, comes as several countries vie to follow the US in sending manned missions to the moon. Using a radar sounder system that can examine underground structures, the orbiter initially found an opening 50 metres wide and 50 metres deep, prompting speculation that there could be a larger hollow.
