The crater.

Daedalus is a prominent crater on the dark side of the Moon. The inner wall is terraced, and additionally there is a cluster of central peaks on the relatively flat interior. Because of its location, which is shielded from radio emissions from the Earth, and its shape, it has been proposed as the site of a future giant radio telescope, which would be scooped out of the crater itself, much like the Arecibo radio telescope, but on a vastly larger scale. It has a depth of 3 kilometers and a diameter of 93 kilometers.
