Aug 15, 2020 · Lunar lava tubes seem to be still larger, the researchers found, with collapse sites 300 to 700 times the size of Earth's. Lunar lava tubes likely range from 1,600 to
Giant Lunar Lava Tubes could hold one quarter of Manhattan Mar 24, 2015 · Lava tubes large enough to house cities could be structurally stable on the moon, according to a theoretical study presented at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference on Tuesday (March 17). The volcanic features are an important target for future human space exploration because they could provide shelter from cosmic radiation, meteorite
Sep 29, 2017 · "The comparison of terrestrial, lunar and martian examples shows that, as you might expect, gravity has a big effect on the size of lava tubes. On Earth, they can be up to
Lunar Lava Tubes Might Make Underground Moon Cities Apr 02, 2015 · Earth's moon is rife with huge lava tubes tunnels formed from the lava flow of volcanic eruptions and new theoretical work suggests that these features could be large enough to house structurally stable lunar cities for future colonists. Purdue University researchers presented their research during the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference held here March 16-20.

Space agencies are now interested in planetary caves and lava tubes, as they represent a first step towards future explorations of the lunar surface (see also NASA's project Artemis) and towards
Space News Roundup - October 27, 2017 - Rod D. MartinOct 27, 2017 · City-Size Lunar Lava Tube Could House Future Astronaut Residents. A city-size lava tube has been discovered on the Moon, and researchers say it could serve as a shelter for lunar astronauts. This lava tube could protect lunar-living astronauts from hazardous conditions on the Moons surface, the researchers said.
Study claims lunar caverns could hold city-size coloniesThe best direct evidence of lunar lava tubes are the long, sinuous trenches or valleys (known as rilles) measuring up to 10 km (6 mi) wide that are found on the lunar surface.
The Moons lava tubes are thought to range between 500 and 900 meters (1,600 to 3,000 feet) in diameter. These caverns are big enough to build towering skyscrapers inside. There would be living space (apartments, condos, flats) and work space (various businesses, offices, warehouses, factories).
Take refuge in a cave on the Moon Caves & pangaea blogAug 20, 2020 · Martian and lunar lava tubes are so huge that they could contain the entire centre of a medium-sized city. On the Moon their volume can exceed one billion cubic metres, up to one kilometer in diameter or as wide as Central Park in New York, says co-author Riccardo Pozzobon.
There Could Be Lava Tubes on the Moon, Large Enough for Apr 07, 2015 · Those that have been observed on the Moon in the past range in size of up to 10 kilometers in width and hundreds of kilometers in length. At that size, the existence of a
