A team led by planetary scientists at UCLA has discovered something new about the moon. The team says that shady locations inside pits on the moon stay at a fairly consistent and comfortable temperature of 63 degrees Fahrenheit.
The surface of the moon heats up to 260 degrees during the day and drops to 280 degrees below zero at night, so the pits, which scientists say are most likely lava tubes, could provide a good environment for a future lunar base. The discovery was made using thermal imaging cameras.
