There is a hole in the moon, and it leads to an underground wonderland of tunnels and caves. If visions of a sprawling subterranean cave-colony on the moon just started flashing by your eyes, then you and I are thinking the same thing that NASA is.

According to New Scientist (via Gizmodo) an image of the moon revealed a hole that is at least 260 feet deep. The tunnel it leads to is at least 1,200 feet wide, and scientists expect that a much larger network of tunnels surrounds it.

So we've got water on the moon, and now a pre-dug set of shelter holes ripe for a colony of astronauts (or mole-people). I say we drop all of our other priorities as a species and set up a moon base. Poverty and disease can wait until we've got a 9 hole golf course built into the Sea of Tranquillity.
