The Indian Space Research Organization has discovered a massive underground chamber near the moon’s equator, one that would be perfect for housing a moon base. A moon base!
Discovered by the Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft, this chamber is more than one mile long and 393 feet wide. There would be lots of benefits to building a moon base in there, mainly for protection from the nastiness of the surface of the moon. It’d provide a nearly constant temperature of minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit, unlike the surface, which fluctuates between 266 degrees and minus 292 degrees. And it would provide protection from radiation, micro-meteor impacts and dust.
