Huge, Habitable Cave Discovered on the Moon


I guess it's moon week.

Indian scientists say they have discovered an enormous cavern beneath the surface of the moon. Four hundred feet wide and one mile deep, the cave is attracting attention because its climate might allow human habitation. The temperature remains a constant (if chilly) -4 Celsius, and the cave's thick walls could protect space troglodytes from dangerous radiation.

That all sounds great. But doesn't anyone realize that the moon is already occupied?

Great, but I'm going to Mars!
So in serious terms, how might they deal with the atmosphere and food supply issues? It sounds intriguing.

Ugh, no that's freaky. It reminds me to much of a story we read in English class called Dark and Golden Eyed They Were where people go to Mars and turn into aliens and forget that they are human. Paranoid, I know, but I never want to live anywhere other than Earth.
