      There is no scientific evidence for it, so it cannot be refereed to as a theory. As the moon creates strong gravitational effects on Earth, and gravitational effects are due to mass, if the moon is hollow, then the crust/surface material of the moon would have to be very, very, very dense to produce the gravitational effects it does – a crust that dense is very, very, very unlikely.

      Hey space guy,
      I didnt even know the theory before I looked it up just now on Wikipedia. But I guess I would go with Jon’s response below!
