A hole found on the moon is thought to potentially lead down to a vast underground tunnel system. Carved by lava, tunnels such as this could one day provide a good shelter against radiation and other hazards for human colonists.
A deep hole on the moon that could open into a vast underground tunnel has been found for the first time. The discovery strengthens evidence for subsurface, lava-carved channels that could shield future human colonists from space radiation and other hazards.

If you are serious then you are an example of how people are so stupid that the government keeps from us what they do. No I'm not serious, I thought that was obvious, sorry. And exactly what are you suggesting that they keep from us? Edit: But I wouldnt be surprised if that hole would be bombarded by theories about extraterrestrials that people whole heartedly believe in. Not saying that it isnt.
