Giant Underground Chamber Found on Moon By India's Chandrayaan-1 Spacecraft
The Indian Space Research Organization has discovered a "giant underground chamber" near the Moon's equator, in the Oceanus Procellarum area
discovered by the Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft—more than one mile long (1.7 kilometers) and 393 feet wide (120 meters)-big enough to contain a small
The Indian researchers have published a paper detailing their findings and talking about the possibility of making this giant underground vault as a
future human base.
I for one will need to read the 'Paper' detailing the satellite findings....from Indian Researchers
Because the News fragment posted is a little misleading...
I think all our imaginations are spinning in high gear and we are visualizing this
mile long + 393 ft wide
as being analogus to a Subway here on Earth, or perhaps a finished
engineered 'Chunnel' (the huge train & vehicle tunnel below the Channel between Europe & the UK)
more info might point out this cavity is more like a Spur of the Mammoth Cave in KY
at this point in time, i'm leaning toward the most likely, irregular and serpintine cavity
being a relic from an earlier Lunar condition, with volcanos or something similar
Or else the cavity is only an odd and very less dense deposit of material encapsulated in the Lunar rock...
resulting in false readings that the area is 'hollowed out'
