Scientists have found 200 temperate zones on the moon where astronauts can survive

Lunar scientists believe they’ve found the hottest places on the moon, as well as about 200 temperate regions that are always close to San Francisco’s average temperature.

The Moon has wild temperature swings, with parts of the moon Heats up to 260 degrees Fahrenheit (127 degrees Celsius) during the day and drops to minus 280 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 173 degrees Celsius) at night. But 200 newly analyzed shaded moon craters are always 63 degrees Fahrenheit (17 degrees Celsius), which means they’re ideal for humans to shield from temperature extremes. They can also protect astronauts from the dangers of solar winds, micrometeorites, and cosmic rays. Some of these craters may lead to similarly warm caves.
