The Hollow Moon theory never gained enough popularity for any major quasi-scientific hypothesis attempting to rationalize it to become notable. Modern Hollow Moon adherents can however be broadly grouped in two major camps:
- the Moon's formation process produced a hollow sphere through natural means. Details vary widely; the proposed mechanism is usually an undefined or pseudoscentific factor in accretion-disk dynamics. Some proponents of this view maintain that the Moon is not exceptional, but that all planetary bodies are hollow.
- the Moon's hollowness stems from its being an artifact. This view (the "Spaceship Moon Theory") usually correlates with other beliefs such as UFOs or ancient astronauts.
The scientific community considers both sub-theories to be entirely unsupported by evidence.
