A Habitat Placed in a Pit – That’s What NASA Thinks

NASA thinks the moon’s underground caves could house astronauts!

Along with craters covering a huge land mass of our moon, it also has a few….err….pretty deep holes.

The moon’s more than 200 holes, or “lunar pits,” were discovered by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

Scientists and Researchers are at present trying to check the feasibility of such an act.Β The habitat, placed in a pit (or hole) of sorts would provide a safe location, as many scientists claim.

However, a lunar probe will have to verify it before any substantive proceedings can be made in this direction.
