Parts of the moon may provide temperatures suitable for humans

Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, found that the moon has craters with shaded regions that hover steadily around 63 degrees Fahrenheit (17 degrees Celsius), a stable temperate range for humans. The Journal of Geophysical Research Letters published the study in July. These craters, which may lead to caves that could also provide …
