> The moon, however, is dry, cool and mostly rigid, like a chunk of stone or iron. So moonquakes set it vibrating like a tuning fork. Even if a moonquake isn't intense, "it just keeps going and going," Neal says. And for a lunar habitat, that persistence could be more significant than a moonquake's magnitude.
The dryness of the Moon presents an interesting challenge to tunnel boring machines that I don't often see addressed.
Quell quakes and generate electricity at the same time.
