Hole in the Moon Could Shelter Colonists

• Space
"We discovered a vertical hole on the moon," an international team of scientists recently announced.

The gaping, dark pit on the near side of the moon is as big as a city block and deep as a modest skyscraper. It is thought to be a collapsed lava tube, created perhaps billions of years ago when the moon was warmer and volcanically active. The moon, overall, is more than 4 billion years old.

 Is the fact that the hole in the moon is vertical instead of horizontal of particular importance?
