The Lockdown Sessions- Hollow Moon & Hollow Earth
Show Notes

On this Lockdown Session, Bobby & Ian discuss The Hollow Moon & The Hollow Earth theories.


The Hollow Moon concept is similar to the better-known Hollow Earth hypothesis, which was a recurring plot device in pre-spaceflight science fiction. The first discussion of a hollow Earth was by scientist Edmond Halley in 1692, while the first publication to mention a hollow Moon was not until H. G. Wells' 1901 novel The First Men in the Moon.
