As reported by The Week, India's space agency has announced that thanks to the 3D images taken by the lunar orbiter Chandrayaan-1, it found a gigantic underground cave on the moon which could (potentially) prove to be a suitable starting position for a moon base.
The cave, which was formed from "ancient volcanic lava flows," is more than one mile long and 393 feet wide -- big enough to "contain a small lunar city or a secret Nazi base with a few thousand UFOs," says Jesus Diaz at Gizmodo.
Its main attraction is a temperate climate. Temperatures on the moon swing wildly, from a maximum of 262 degrees Fahrenheit to a minimum of -292. The cave holds steady at a (relatively) comfortable -4, since the moon's weather can't penetrate its 40-foot-thick wall. It could also protect astronauts from "hazardous radiations, micro-meteoritic impacts," and dust storms.
