may have read my Apollo hoax article elsewhere on this web site,
where I believe that the Apollo footage that has been released by NASA
seems to be a hoax. I have uncovered various pictures and transcripts of
astronaut conversations from the Apollo missions that relate
to encounters with UFOs, and perhaps this is one reason why
NASA would release fake footage to the general public.
following are excerpts of conversations from Apollo Astronauts
on the Moon to Mission Control - which show that the
Astronauts came across some strange and hard-to-explain structures and
unusual sightings of unidentified craft - whilst on the surface of the
In the photo below, you can see an Apollo astronaut
stepping down onto the Moon. In the background, space, the
final frontier. Or is it a Hollywood backdrop, the ultimate deception? Many
people feel we have not been told the complete truth regarding NASA's
space program, in particular the Apollo Missions of the late
60's and early 70's.
research has shown that conditions on the Moon could be very
different from the 'official-line' which NASA would lead us to
Dr Farouk El Baz, one of NASA's
foremost scientists, confirmed public suspicions when he stated 'not
every discovery has been announced to the public'. Is this the
understatement of the millennium? Why is it that relatively few people have
been allowed total access to the massive NASA archives
(photographs which are supposedly in the public domain).
Instead we have to
make do with the two or three dozen 'reproductions' that appear in the
'official' textbooks, despite literally millions of photographic images
obtained by NASA. Something is seriously amiss. Also the
original photographs are huge (32"x24") so by the time they have been
reduced to fit the pages of a regular book the clarity and quality reduced
by the copying process make most of the images pretty meaningless. In many
cases, researchers are left with little more than 'smudges' and 'blurs'.
Even so, despite all these obstacles, there is still hard evidence when
these photographs are scrutinized under the proverbial - and literal -
microscope, that points to the fact that virtually everything NASA
has told us about the Moon is a lie.
The REAL NASA MOON PHOTOS, for example show all kinds of
structures, seemingly both old and new, such as domes,
pipelines, and even pyramids. So why aren't these
photos in the public domain? You can see in several of NASA's
film footage, the American flag 'flapping in the wind' and yet the Moon according to NASA has no atmosphere, because it
is a vacuum! One film clearly shows a desperate astronaut trying his level
best to hold the flag still!
We are also told that the famous Neil Armstrong 'footprints' will
remain etched on the Moon's surface forever. We are told this
precisely because the Moon's 'atmosphere' is a vacuum. The
laws of physics demand that dust becomes hardened and will compress in a
'vacuum' therefore ensuring the 'footprints' remain undisturbed. And yet
great plumes of dust can be seen spewing forth from underneath the 'Moon
Buggy' as it travels across the lunar surface. Is this 'vacuum theory'
some kind of wild hoax by NASA?
Another NASA cover-up are the small cloud
formations that have been photographed above the Moon, again
in a vacuum?. And while were on the subject of clouds what about the ONE
HUNDRED MILE WIDE CLOUD OF VAPOR that was detected by NASA's
own instruments. This embarrassing 'anomaly' was promptly dismissed by
NASA scientists as being the result of the considerable volume of
urine ejected by the Apollo Mission astronauts!
What were they drinking?!
For decades strange 'lights' and artificial seeming structures have been
observed and recorded on the Moon by amateur astronomers.
Science writer Joseph Goodavage observed that over two hundred white 'dome shaped' structures had been seen and catalogued,
only for them often to vanish and reappear somewhere else?. There are even
color photos from the Apollo 8 missions that clearly show
evidence of green vegetation on the lunar hills.
These unusual findings, when added together with the anomalies which
Richard Hoagland has shown to exist on Apollo Moon photographs,
provide compelling evidence for an ongoing NASA cover-up
of what the Apollo Astronauts really discovered on the Moon
from 1969 to 1972.
The following Apollo Astronaut conversations were mostly taken from the
out-of-print book "Our Mysterious Spaceship Moon" by Don Wilson

Apollo 16 Mission: April 16 - 27, 1972
Charles Duke, Thomas Mattingly and John Young land in
the Descartes highlands:
Duke: These devices
are unbelievable. I'm not taking a gnomon up there.
Young: O.K., but man, that's going to be a steep bridge to climb.
Duke: You got - YOWEE! Man - John, I tell you this is some
sight here. Tony, the blocks in Buster are covered - the bottom
is covered with blocks, five meters across. Besides the blocks seem to
be in a preferred orientation, northeast to southwest. They go all the
way up the wall on those two sides and on the other side you can only
barely see the out-cropping at about 5 percent. Ninety percent of the
bottom is covered with blocks that are 50 centimeters and larger.
Capcom: Good show. Sounds like a secondary ...
Duke: Right out here ... the blue one that I described from the
lunar module window is colored because it is glass coated, but
underneath the glass it is crystalline ... the same texture as the
Genesis Rock ... Dead on my mark.
Young: Mark. It's open.
Duke: I can't believe it!
Young: And I put that beauty in dry!
Capcom: Dover. Dover. We'll start EVA-2 immediately.
Duke: You'd better send a couple more guys up here. They'll have
to try (garble).
Capcom: Sounds familiar.
Duke: Boy, I tell you, these EMUs and PLSSs are
really super- fantastic!
It is obvious that the
astronauts are talking in code - meant to disguise what they are referring
to. The big question is why the excited cries? Can this be *merely*
due to the collecting of Moon rocks, as they would have us
believe? Or did they find something much more substantial, which was not
meant for public knowledge?

under our feet. It's a soft spot. Firmer. Where we stand, I tell you one
thing. If this place had air, it'd sure be beautiful. It's beautiful
with or without air. The scenery up on top of Stone Mountain, you'd have
to be there to see this to believe it - those domes are
Mission Control: O.K., could you take a look at that smokey
area there and see what you can see on the face?
Duke: Beyond the domes, the structure
goes almost into the ravine that I described and one goes to the top. In
the northeast wall of the ravine you can't see the delineation. To the
northeast there are tunnels, to the north they are dipping
east to about 30 degrees.

report from the back side is that I took another look at the - the -
cloverleaf in Aitken with the binocs. And that
southern dome (garble) to the east.

difference in the color of the dome and the Mare
Evans: Yes there is... That Condor, Condorsey, or
Condorecet or whatever you want to call it there. Condorecet
Hotel is the one that has got the diamond shaped fill down in the uh

Mission Control: O.K., we copy that Northwest wall of
Evans: The area is oval or elliptical in shape. Of course, the
ellipse is toward the top.
we have another example of code being used to disguise what
has been found. For example, "Condorset Hotel". Why the codes, if
there are no secrets being discussed.
Why not explain to the American people
openly what is going on? After all, they have paid for the mission.
Wilson says in his book (p. 139):
has always held that the findings of lunar and space expeditions have
never been held secret, it is interesting to note that Dr. Farouk
El Baz, one of NASA's foremost scientists, does
admit 'not every discovery has been announced'."

Capcom: What about
the albedo change in the subsurface soil? Of course you
saw it first at Flagg and were probably more excited about it
there. Was there any difference in it there - and Buster and
Alsep and LM?
Duke: No. Around the Alsep it was just in spots. At
Plum it seemed to be everywhere. My predominant impression was that
the white albedo was (garble) than the fine cover on top.

suppose Young meant when he said they came upon "Barbara"?

terms to describe unusual natural formations."

conversation about "Watermarks" on the Moon
America, we're tracking you on the map here, watching it.
LMP: O.K. Al Buruni has got variations on its floor.
Variations in the lights and its albedo. It almost looks
like a pattern as if the water were flowing up on a beach. Not in great
areas, but in small areas around the southern side, and the part that
looks like the water-washing pattern is a much lighter albedo,
although I cannot see any real source of it. The texture, however, looks
Capcom: America, Houston. We'd like you to hold off switching to
OMNI Charlie until we can cue you on that.
LMP: Was there any indication on the seismometers on the impact
about the time I saw a bright flash on the surface?
Capcom: Stand by. We'll check on that, Jack.
LMP: A UFO perhaps, don't worry about it. I thought
somebody was looking at it. It could have been one of the other flashes
Capcom: Roger. We copies the time and ...
LMP: I have the place marked.
Capcom: Pass it on to the back room.
LMP: O.K. I've marked it on the map, too.
Capcom: Jack, just some words from the back room
for you. There may have been an impact at the time you called, but the
Moon is still ringing from the impact of the S-IVB
impact. So it would mask any other impact. So they may be able to
strip it out at another time, but right now they don't see anything at
the time you called.
LMP: Just my luck. Just looking at the southern edge of
Grimaldi, Bob, and - that Graben is pre-Mare.
Capcom: O.K., I copy on that, Jack. And as long as we're
talking about Grimaldi we'd like to have you brief Ron
exactly on the location of that flashing light you saw ...
We'll probably ask him to take a picture of it. Maybe during one of his

reiterates that it was a *flashing* light. It
was therefore *no* meteor impact that they were
witnessing. Notice also that the Lunar Command Pilot specifically mentions
the word "UFO".
Wilson writes (p. 60):
"This last conversation
makes it obvious that both our astronauts and NASA do not
take these sightings of light or UFOs lightly. Maps were
marked and photographs were taken at the sites of these occurrences."
While the Apollo 17
astronauts were discussing the "Watermarks", the sighting of
the UFO occurred. The conversation then returns to the

very sinuous - just passing one. They not only cross the low planar

"If this is not code,
what is it? And why switch to the use of strange meaningless "code"
words if NASA was not trying to cover up
something startling, something that needed to be hidden from the public?
In fact, science writer Joseph Goodavage maintains that "whenever
something was discovered, the astronauts and CAPCOM
apparently switched to a prearranged code, sometimes even on an
alternate publicly unmonitorable channel.
NASA scientist Farouk El Baz admitted in a magazine
interview that NASA did commit itself to a secretive
search for various things on the Moon. 'We're looking for
something - something ...' He admitted that 'a huge bridge-like
structure in Mare Crisium has been reported ...
That is all I can say about it.' When asked if 'that was a bridge - that
you've actually found artificial structures or some kind of
intelligently placed artifact?'
El Baz quickly denied
it. 'No. No. I am not admitting such a thing. But when you start to
think about it, almost anything is possible. There are almost no
limits [to] how you can interpret the many things astronomers have been
observing and reporting for several centuries. Now the astronauts are
seeing many anomalies close up'."

convinced of that.

Apollo 11 - "I say that
there were other spaceships!"
11, with Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin Aldrin
was the first Apollo flight to land on the Moon, on July 20,
1969. While Collins flew in orbit around the Moon in
the command module, Armstrong and Aldrin
descended in the lunar module, landing in the Sea of Tranquillity
at 4:17 P.M.
According to hitherto
un-confirmed reports, both Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin
saw UFOs shortly after that historic landing on the Moon
in Apollo 11 on 21 July 1969.
I remember hearing one of the
astronauts refer to a "light" in or on a crater during the television
transmission, followed by a request from mission control for further
information. Nothing more was heard.
The following astonishing conversation was picked up by ham radio operators
that had their own VHF receiving facilities that bypassed
NASA's broadcasting outlets.
At this time, the live television
broadcast was interrupted for two minutes due to a supposed "overheated
camera", but the transmission below was received loud and clear by
hundreds of ham radio operators.
According to Otto Binder,
who was a member of the NASA space team, when the two
moon-walkers, Aldrin and Armstrong were making their rounds
some distance from the LEM, Armstrong clutched
Aldrin's arm excitedly and exclaimed:
Armstrong: What was
it? What the hell was it? That's all I want to know!"
Mission Control: What's there?... malfunction (garble) ...
Mission Control calling Apollo 11...
Apollo 11: These babies were huge, sir!... Enormous!... Oh, God!
You wouldn't believe it! ... I'm telling you there are other
space-craft out there ... lined up on the far side of the crater
edge! ... They're on the Moon watching us!
Wilson writes (p. 48):
"Binder ends his report with
this observation: 'There has, understandably, been no confirmation of
this incredible report by NASA or any authorities. WE
cannot vouch for its authenticity, but if true, one can surmise that
mission control went into a dither and then into a huddle, after which
they sternly [ordered] the moonwalkers to 'forget' what they saw
and carry on casually and calmly as if nothing had happened. After all,
an estimated 600 million people around the world were hanging on every
word spoken by the first two men to leave footprints on the Moon."
book "Celestial Raise" by Richard Watson and ASSK
[P.O. Box 35 Mt. Shasta CA. 96067 (916)-926-2316); 1987; page 147-148]
records the following (continuation?) of the above remarkable dialogue of
Apollo 11, which was picked up by hundreds of ham radio
operators in the USA:
During the transmission of
the Moon landing of Armstrong and Aldrin,
who journeyed to the Moon in an American spaceship, two
minutes of silence occurred in which the image and sound were
interrupted. NASA insisted that this problem was the
result of one of the television cameras which had overheated, thus
interfering with the reception.
This unexpected problem surprised even the most qualified of viewers who
were unable to explain how in such a costly project, one of the most
essential elements could break down... Some time after the historic
Moon landing, Christopher Craft, director of the base
in Houston, made some surprising comments when he left NASA.
The contents of these comments, which is included in the conversations
[below], has been corroborated by hundreds of amateur radio operators
who had connected their stations to the same frequency through which the
astronauts transmitted. During the two minute interruption - which was
not as it seemed, NASA, Armstrong and Aldrin
with Cape Kennedy, censored both image and sound. 'I say
that there were other spaceships.'
Here is reproduced completely
the dialogue between the American astronauts and Control
Armstrong & Aldrin:
Those are giant things. No, no, no - this is not an optical illusion. No
one is going to believe this!
Houston (Christopher Craft): What ... what ... what? What
the hell is happening? What's wrong with you?
Armstrong & Aldrin: They're here under the surface.
Houston: What's there? (muffled noise) Emission interrupted;
interference control calling 'Apollo 11'.
Armstrong & Aldrin: We saw some visitors. They were
here for a while, observing the instruments.
Houston: Repeat your last information!
Armstrong & Aldrin: I say that there were other spaceships.
They're lined up in the other side of the crater!
Houston: Repeat, repeat!
Armstrong & Aldrin: Let us sound this orbita ... in 625 to
5 ... Automatic relay connected ... My hands are shaking so badly I
can't do anything. Film it? God, if these damned cameras have picked up
anything - what then?
Houston: Have you picked up anything?
Armstrong & Aldrin: I didn't have any film at hand. Three shots
of the saucers or whatever they were that were ruining the
Houston: Control, control here. Are you on your way? What is the
uproar with the UFOs over?
Armstrong & Aldrin: They've landed here. There they are and
they're watching us.
Houston: The mirrors, the mirrors - have you set them up?
Armstrong & Aldrin: Yes, they're in the right place. But whoever
made those spaceships surely can come tomorrow and remove
them. Over and out.
A certain professor, who
wished to remain anonymous, was engaged in a discussion with Neil
Armstrong during a NASA symposium.
REALLY happened out there with Apollo 11?
Armstrong: It was incredible, of course we had always known there
was a possibility - the fact is, we were warned off! There was never any
question then of a space station or a moon city.
Professor: How do you mean "warned off"?
Armstrong: I can't go into details, except to say that their ships were far superior to ours both in size and
technology - Boy, were they big!...and menacing! No, there is no
question of a space station.
Professor: But NASA had other missions after Apollo 11?
Armstrong: Naturally - NASA was committed at that
time, and couldn't risk panic on Earth. But it really was
a quick scoop and back again.
According to a Dr. Vladimir
relayed the message to Mission Control that two large, mysterious
objects were watching them after having landed near the Moon
module (LEM). But this message was never
heard by the public - because NASA censored it."

Cosmonaut Shadowed By
In April of 1979, Cosmonaut Victor Afanasyev lifted off from Star City to dock with the Soviet Solyut 6 space station.
But while en route, something strange happened. Cosmonaut Afanasyev
saw an unidentified object turn toward his craft and begin tailing it
"It followed us during half
of our orbit. We observed it on the light side, and when we entered the
shadow side, it disappeared completely. It was an engineering structure,
made from some type of metal, approximately 40 meters long with inner
hulls. The object was narrow here and wider here, and inside there were
openings. Some places had projections like small wings. The object
stayed very close to us. We photographed it, and our photos showed it to
be 23 to 28 meters away."
In addition to photographing the UFO, Afanasyev continually reported back to Mission
Control about the craft's size, its shape and position. When the
cosmonaut returned to earth he was debriefed and told never to reveal what
he knew, and had his cameras and film confiscated.
Those photos and his voice transmissions from space have never been
released. It is only now, with the collapse of the Soviet Union that
Afanasyev feels that he can safely tell his story. "It is still
classified as a UFO because we have yet to identify the
During the late 60's and early 70's, NASA's Apollo Mission astronauts
all experienced close encounters with 'unidentified space vehicles'.
According to the first man on the Moon, Neil Armstrong, who took part
in the Apollo 11 Mission, the reason why the US
government changed their plans to build a 'Moon City' was because
they were told to change those plans by unknown extraterrestrial
voyagers... 'The fact is we were warned off' Armstrong told a
NASA symposium. 'There was never any question then of a space
station or Moon City.'
According to a former NASA employee Otto Binder,
unnamed radio hams with their own VHF receiving facilities that bypassed
NASA's broadcasting outlets picked up the following exchange:
'Buzz' Aldrin who was
also with Armstrong on the Apollo 11 mission, was
said to have taken color film footage of alien craft,
Armstrong later confirmed that this footage had indeed been shot by
Aldrin, only to be confiscated by the CIA on their
return to Earth. Fearing for his wellbeing, Armstrong refused to
go in further details, except to confirm that the CIA were
behind an extensive cover-up campaign regarding the US space
program and consequent encounters with UFOs. In 1979,
former chief of NASA Communications,
Maurice Chatelain, confirmed that Armstrong and Aldrin
had encountered UFOs on the Moon. To this
day Chatelain vehemently protests the truth of their accounts.
In December 1965, Gemini
astronauts James Lovell and Frank Borman also saw a UFO
during their second orbit of their record-breaking 14 day flight. Borman
reported that he saw an unidentified spacecraft some distance from their
capsule. Gemini Control, at Cape Kennedy told him that he was
seeing the final stage of their own Titan booster rocket. Borman
confirmed that he could see the booster rocket all right, but that he could
also see something completely different.

Capcom: Gemini 7, is that the booster or is that an actual
Lovell: WE HAVE SEVERAL.... ACTUAL SIGHTINGS.
Capcom: ...Estimated distance or size?
Lovell: WE ALSO HAVE THE BOOSTER IN SIGHT...
'The encounter was common
knowledge at NASA,' Chatelain said. 'All Apollo
and Gemini Flights were followed by space vehicles of
extraterrestrial origin - or UFOs, if you prefer to
call them that. Every time it occurred, the astronauts informed Mission
Control, who ordered absolute silence'. He added 'I think Walter
Schirra, aboard Mercury 8, was the first astronaut to use
the code name 'Santa Claus' to indicate the presence of Ufos'.
But it was James Lovell, on board the Apollo 8 Command
Module, who came out from behind the Moon and said, for
everybody to hear 'Please be informed that there is a Santa Claus!'
Even though this happened on Christmas Day, 1968, many people sensed a
hidden meaning in those words.'
Chatelain also published an article in 1995 that confirmed that not
only did the Apollo Moon Mission encounter UFOs, but that they
also found 'several mysterious geometric structures of
unnatural origin on the Moon'.
Another former astronaut, Dr Brian O'Leary, who was speaking at a
science conference in 1994 confirmed the cover-up.
'For nearly fifty years, the
secrecy apparatus within the United States government has kept
from the public UFO and alien information,
we have contact with alien cultures'. He went on to say
'the suppression of UFO and other extraterrestrial
intelligence information for at least forty-seven years, is
probably being orchestrated by an elite band of men in the CIA,
NSA, NSS, DIA and their like.
This small group appears able to keep these already hard-to-believe
secrets very well'.
Statements from various
NASA sources, including Maurice Chatelain reveal that all
astronauts are briefed and debriefed, before and after every mission, and
are warned not to discuss their encounters in public. Rumors of astronauts
being 'threatened', 'going mad', or even 'losing their
lives' on their return to Earth, abound.
According to Sgt Major Robert Dean, who carried the highest security
clearance there is while serving at SHAPE (Supreme
Headquarters Allied Powers Europe) in the 1960's, the US
intelligence community is in possession of a top-secret dossier entitled
The Assessment, detailing the history of extraterrestrial
visitation, and an assessment of their purposes for visiting our
planet. For the past twenty years Sgt Major Dean had fought to make
this information public knowledge.
Former NASA photographic technician, Donna Tietze said
in an interview with a radio station in 1995 'The job of a co-worker in a
restricted area was to airbrush out any anomalies found on the Moon
photos'. The NASA Library is currently
in possession of literally millions of photographs, plus an impressive
catalogue of transmission tapes and videotapes documenting the presence of
UFOs. The Clementine Probe alone sent back 1.6
million photographic images in 1994.
President Dwight D.
Eisenhower created NASA on October 1st, 1958,
it was to 'coordinate national space activities' and to take 'full advantage
of the military potential of space', and yet at the same time was to
'administer the civilian space program'.

NASA Astronaut Cooper denies seeing UFO in orbit - But Tells of His
Dealings With Secret UFO Film
astronaut L. Gordon Cooper denies being the first astronaut to see a UFO while in orbit, but stands by his reports of a strange
encounter over Germany in the 1950s.Cooper flatly denied the
long-standing claim, repeated over the years by various authors including
UFOlogical saints J. Allen Hynek and Jacques Vallee, that he
saw a greenish object with a red tail move past his Mercury 9
spacecraft in 1963.
"No, somebody made a lot of money selling lies on that one," Cooper,
the sixth American in space, told Art Bell on the syndicated "Coast
to Coast" talk radio show recently. "It was totally
untrue, sorry to say." However, the retired air force colonel, who once
lectured the United Nations on the reality of UFOs, still
holds an "unshakable" belief in extraterrestrial intelligence,
thanks largely to personal experience. "On one occasion, I saw some strange
vehicles that we assumed were UFOs," he told Bell.
In the encounter, which took place over Germany in the early 1950s,
Cooper saw "flights of fighters flying by in the same sort of formation
we flew, moving east to west." The U.S. Air Force base scrambled its own
pilots, including Cooper, who remembers the objects as looking "just
like saucers -- they were metallic looking, but we couldn't really get close
enough to see more than that. You couldn't see any wings on them."
At the time, Cooper entertained the possibility that the craft might
be a new Soviet design, but "looking back now," he suspects "it was some
kind of extraterrestrial vehicle."
He also stood by his belief that he saw a UFO land at Edwards Air Force Base in California in 1957. Although Cooper
had been filming the base with a camera crew at the time, the film, which he
handed over to a high-ranking officer from Washington, has never emerged.

Area 51 and the lost Gemini photographs
After another round of filming --- this time in orbit aboard Gemini 5
-- Cooper ran into trouble with the authorities when they confiscated
film he took from space. However, in contrast to UFO legend, this film did
not contain photographic proof of an alien encounter.Instead, he had ran
afoul of the authorities for taking pictures of the "top secret" Nevada
military base known familiarly as "Area
51". "I found out fairly recently that one of the reasons
it got confiscated was I had inadvertently … overflown Area 51,"
while taking test photos, he said.
Cooper had no comment on the
Great Face on Mars. "That's one of
the reasons you need to send a manned mission to Mars, to
study that stuff closer," he told Bell, gently criticizing today's
NASA and recent presidential administrations for lacking the
"bravery" to build on previous generations' space advances.

In recently published memoirs "Leap of Faith: An Astronaut's Journey into
the Unknown", by USAF Colonel L. Gordon Cooper (Ret.) recounts
how he chased UFOs over Germany in his F-86. Following this
experience, Cooper was very open minded about UFOs.
"I knew an Air Force master
sergeant assigned to a team that received an emergency call-out from
Washington D.C., to the Pacific southwest (not Roswell.)
He told me they reached a canyon and found a wreckage at the site.
According to his friend -- and I had been around him enough to consider
him a reliable guy -- a metallic disk-shaped object had crashed, and
sitting atop the wreckage were two very human-looking fellows in flight
suits, waving at them. They were hustled away, and the sergeant never
found out who they were or what happened to them."
As a captain stationed at
Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., on May 3, 1957, he became aware that
a metallic, saucer-shaped craft had landed (silently) sometime after 8:00
a.m. on base property. He alleges that the event was filmed by a startled
technical film crew on assignment 50 yards away, the craft zooming out of
sight when the photographers tried to approach it for a better camera shot.
Cooper writes that, upon learning of the incident, he telephoned
appropriate Pentagon officials, who ordered him to have all
the film developed (but not printed) and to ship it immediately to the
Pentagon. He adds that, before complying, he chose to peek at
some of the negatives, which confirmed the existence of the "saucer" as
described to him by the film crew. Cooper notes that he heard nothing
more about the film or the results of any investigation.
After reading the above information, I must ask you this...
If NASA was
formed as a 'civilian space agency', why were so many NASA
programs funded by the US Defense Department?
Why were all
astronauts subjected to US military security regulations?
Why were all video and
photographic evidence screened by the National Security Agency?
Why were all the radio
communications screened by the National Security Agency?
After spending millions of
taxpayers' dollars planning a 'Moon City', why has the
Moon not been visited by NASA since 1973?
Why are some of NASA's
top photographic technicians employed to 'airbrush out'
anomalies caught on film?
Why are astronauts and other
NASA employees threatened with long jail sentences if they
'speak out' about what was really discovered out there in space?
Do you realize that no
information, either photographic or otherwise, reaches the public domain
until it has been thoroughly scrutinized and sanitized by the US
intelligence community, and has been in effect since the space
Did you know that the main
debates before the 'official' Moon landings were
regarding mining and mineral rights?
in mind that the rich resources of titanium, aluminium,
uranium, helium 3, and god knows what else, were
found on the Moon. Do you really think that the US would have
then told the rest of the world to come on up and take a share?
Aldrin has said in his book, 'Men From Earth'
'Another exciting energy
resource on the moon is... an ample supply of the isotope Helium-3
(HE-3), which is very rare on Earth but has been deposited
on the lunar surface over billions of years by the solar wind. It is
estimated that at least a million tons of He-3 are readily
recoverable from the regolith formations where lunar solar power
stations would be practical.
offers a key to safe, practical nuclear fusion energy on Earth. It is
estimated that a single ton of He-3 delivered to Earth
would be worth at least $1 Billion.'
Another issue is that one
astronaut is seen to land 'heavily' after leaving the lunar module?
How come when the Moon gravity is one sixth of the Earth's
own gravitational pull? Even bearing in mind their heavy spacesuits which
NASA claim weigh 185-190lbs, plus the astronauts weight, the
total weight relative to Earth should have been 62 pounds or
about four and a half stone.
Again Buzz Aldrin says in his book that
he weighed only 60 pounds, if this is the case they should have been able to
jump at least six feet, but as official film footage shows, the astronauts
struggle to jump over eighteen inches!
According to the laws of physics,
this simply doesn't add up.

Did you know...
Official NASA footage clearly shows an Apollo module
taking off from the lunar surface, evidently minus any conventional
propulsion system? What you see is a series of 'bolts' clamping the
module to the Moon's surface explode and the module simply
floats up into space. Is this evidence of an antigravity propulsion in use
by 1969? Or simply a computer-simulated take-off from Hollywood Studios?
