Then when the Lcross was impatcted on the moon it was noticed that the moon "vibrated like a bell" suggesting its hollow or may be full of
I think you will find that unfortunate phrase, used as analogy, was coined long before LCROSS. Mentioned in thread, already. SOLID objects vibrate,
too...the term "bell" paints a mental image that only suggests
"hollow", because that's what bells usually look like. But, what happens
to a musical cymbal, when struck?? Or, a large gong? For example. And large quantities of liquid water, in the interior, defies any known logic of
planetary formation principles, especially considering the Lunar environment.
Also, some of you may be surprised to know that the moon has holes, huge holes punctured all through it.
Your source calls them "caverns". Likely just lava tubes, from billions of years ago when there were vast areas of molten activity...long since
past. Meteor impacts can punch holes into, exposing those tubes. No reason to imagine some vast "holllowness" inside, just localized pockets of
caves, maybe tubes running for some distance, etc. They COULD be useful, in future, as possible places to build habitats, for colonies....the Lunar
terrain, only need a few meters thickness, provides radiation protection, for long-term stays on the Moon by Humans.
