It's surroundings are covered by a thin lava sheet which is 20 to 25 m thick. Due to the protection astronauts staying on the moon would need, a lava tube like this would be a good spot to build a moon station. Since it's still uncertain if this is really a lava tube, the researchers hope for sharper pictures from NASA's LRO." Link to Original Source top

The benefits could be huge. Think of datasets which would contain information like hardware revision, firmware version,hardware bus, kernel versions which the piece of hardware works with, etc. Today, AFAIK, hardware compatibility lists are scattered across the web on wikis, fora and distributions webpages. Maybe we should start to link it together?"
