Well we all know how THIS turns out...

Fans of Colin Maclntyre and the great starship Dahak should take a minute to stop in here for discussions about one of David's best-loved series.

Scientists Have Found An Enormous Structure Under The Surface Of The Moon

Planetary scientists have discovered a structure that weighs 2.18 billion billion kilograms and stretches for more than 300 kilometers (186 miles) in depth. As reported in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, the team suggests the mass might be from the asteroid that formed the crater.

...

The discovery was possible thanks to NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) mission, which measures subtle changes in the gravitational field of the Moon. These observations can be used to study the internal composition of our natural satellite.
