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?
