Humans could live in moon's volcanic tunnels

The SETI Institute has analysed images of our moon and pinpointed a possible home away from Earth.

Recent findings presented at the NASA Lunar Science for Landed Missions Workshop suggest we could become mole people.

On the moon.

Scientists believe that tunnels riddle our hunk of rock in the sky, reminders of the moon's volcanic past. Might these tunnels provide shelter for space-going humans? Could they perhaps hide a fuel source for interstellar travel further afield? Scientists from the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute and the Mars Institute think so.

It would make a great mission if we sent a rover down a lava tunnel, just have to keep an eye out for the Selenites. ;)

The linked article doesn't mention this, but if water from ice is cracked electrolytically to produce hydrogen for rocket fuel, oxygen will also be produced. Besides being a good oxidizer for such fuel, it will, of course, come in handy for breathing purposes!  Lava tubes aren't terribly stable on Earth, typically having fairly thin roofs. Lunar ones would presumably be less prone to collapse, considering the Moon's lesser gravity, about 1/6 that of Earth's.

Only one way to find out.  Go and see.
