Geekologie Writer to Moonbase Alpha. How's the cheese? Over.
A giant lunar cave capable of housing a future moonbase -- this is the kind of shit science fiction is all about! Like, literally -- THE. ACTUAL. SHIT.

There would be lots of benefits of building a moon base in there, mainly for protection from the nastiness of the surface of the moon. It'd provide a nearly constant temperature of -4 degrees Fahrenheit, unlike the surface, which fluctuates between 266 degrees and -292 degrees. And it would provide protection from radiation, micro-meteor impacts and dust.

Two moons, or one moon and a Deathstar?
