I he big picture that Mike Bara and I have tried to paint in the preceding pages is imperfect, at best. We know that.

It is, however, an honest effort - based on official NASA data - but data which has been (as you have repeatedly seen throughout this book) both deliberately hidden ... and deliberately corrupted.

It is a picture also based, in part, on correlating what objective evidence we've been able to gather (primarily, the astonishing official NASA photographs ...), combined with the first-person testimonies of a small handful of human beings who have personally witnessed this remarkable deception (a few ex-NASA employees and the Apollo astronauts).

As noted earlier, the latter have been demonstrably compromised - either by having their own memories deliberately altered after seeing first-hand the wonders we have laid out here - or, from their own continuing, misguided "allegiance" to the security oaths they signed when they joined NASA. Remember, according to the official Charter NASA is not a civilian research institution, but "a defense agency of the United States [emphasis added]...").

It is an extraordinary picture based, at best, on an investigation also severely hampered because it lacks the force of law to compel the truth. As authors and investigators, we do not have the power of the subpoena, the legal process of "discovery" or the simple ability to have witnesses testify under oath - all crucial tools in confronting a government-wide cover-up of such a sweeping, overwhelming magnitude and implication.

But, we do have evidence - extraordinary scientific evidence - which has been leaked to us quietly out of NASA by a few of its truly patriotic former employees over the years. And now suddenly - literally as we go to press - a brand new flood of even more amazing imagery is being posted directly, on official NASA websites available around the world.



A Few "Loose Ends"

As Mike and I were coming to the end of the four years it took to put this book together, our own original focus began to seriously shift - from our decades-long Enterprise investigation of the Martian anomalies, and calls for new and better NASA data on the artifacts on Mars - to several major "creeping breakthroughs" in our quiet, ten-year investigation of the Moon:

The first of these breakthroughs came literally from within NASA itself, or at least from several former associates or employees of the Agency. In mid 2006, a story broke in the national media concerning the existence of high-quality TV recordings of the Apollo 11 mission having "gone missing."169 As it turned out, the original TV broadcasts of the historic first lunar landing were far below the quality of what was originally transmitted from the Moon.

The Apollo 11 TV images were sent from an antenna mounted on top of the Lunar Module to three tracking stations on Earth: Goldstone in California and the Honeysuckle Creek and Parkes facilities in Australia. These original signals were in a format called Slow Scan Television, or SSTV.


The camera carried to the lunar surface provided a progressive 320 scan lines at 10 frames per second (hence the Slow Scan TV moniker) in black and white. Although still far below the resolution of the standard broadcast quality of the day (525 lines [interlaced] 30 frames per second), the original SSTV signals were orders of magnitude better than what was finally broadcast to the American public on July 20th, 1969.

Because the SSTV signal could not be directly translated to broadcast TV, RCA had to develop a Slow Scan Converter to provide a TV signal to the viewers in "real time." This converter had serious limitations however, and they led to a broadcast signal that was only 262.5 vertical lines of resolution, about half as sharp as a then standard TV signal and on a par with the old "kinescope" recorders of the 1950's.

The result was the dark, ghostly images we all saw on July 20th, 1969 when Neil Armstrong finally set foot upon the lunar surface.


Polaroid pictures taken of the SSTV monitors in Australia (the signal from Honeysuckle Creek was the one that was eventually used by NASA to broadcast the historic "one small step to American audiences) show just how dramatically better the SSTV signals were compared to the scan-converted images the public received [Fig. E-l].

Fortunately, the original SSTV signals were recorded, using a video technology that would eventually find its way into the Betamax and VHS recorders of the 1980's. Unfortunately, when a group of enthusiasts, including some of the original site engineers from Goldstone and the Australian tracking stations tried to find the original SSTV tapes, they found that they were missing. For several years, they have been searching for them, only to discover a very dry hole.

Following the Apollo 11 mission, procedures required that the tapes be shipped to the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) in Greenbelt, Maryland. In 1970, the tapes were moved to the U.S. National Archives in Accession #69A4099. By 1984, all but two of the over 700 boxes of Apollo era magnetic tapes placed in the Accession had been removed and returned to Goddard at their request for "permanent retention."


There are no records at Goddard showing receipt of the boxes of tapes. In fact, all of the SSTV tapes sent to Goddard are now missing, and to this date not one of the original Apollo 11 SSTV tapes has been found.
All of this might just be a sad story of incompetence and misfortune, as long as you don't consider the context in which all of these events took place.

Remember, if our thesis is correct, NASA was sending its astronauts to the Moon on an archeological reconnaissance mission, looking to find the lost power of the gods that may have been left lying around the lunar surface in the form of instrumentalities from eons past. As we have also seen from the many images presented in this volume, there were awesome glass structures all around the landing sites on most of the missions. If NASA actually suspected this - that Armstrong and Aldrin may have been descending into a vast, mysterious wasteland of enormous ruins - then a whole lot of things about this "missing tapes" affair begin to make sense.

First, given that color TV was commonplace by the late 1960's, why did NASA send a crappy, low resolution black and white camera to record the most momentous journey man had ever undertaken? Westinghouse had begun development of a color TV camera called "The Westinghouse Field Sequential Color Camera" for use in space (and on Moonwalks) in 1968 and had perfected it by 1969. The color camera had none of the "down.converting" problems of the primitive SSTV cameras and could produce a sharp, clear, color picture that was comparable to broadcast quality.


It was tested on Apollo 10 in 1969 and worked flawlessly, transmitting over three hours of clear, color pictures back to Earth from the Moon.170 Following this test, you would have thought that NASA would enthusiastically pursue the use of color broadcasts from the lunar surface. Not so.

According to a NASA paper by Bill Wood, former Apollo MFSN station engineer from Goldstone, there were a great many at NASA who were utterly stunned when it was decided to use the black and white SSTV camera instead of the Sequential Color Camera to cover the first Moonwalk. Max Faget, the designer of the Mercury capsule and considered an "icon" of the glory days of NASA, was beside himself that so many of the pictures (and all of the TV) from the lunar surface would be in black and white.


According to "Chariots for Apollo" the official NASA history of the Apollo missions:

"Faget was more than mildly upset when he learned that so much of the television, motion, and still photography planned for Apollo 11 would be in black and white. To him, it was 'almost unbelievable' that the culmination of a $20-billion program 'is to be recorded in such a stingy manner.'"

His objections were based on the fact that the color camera had been so successful on Apollo 10.


Now, it might be argued that with only one mission under its belt, the color camera was too risky to take to the lunar surface. However, consider this other point; neither had the SSTV black and white camera. Both systems were equally "untried" in the exposed lunar environment.

Unbelievably, the Sequential Color Camera was eventually approved for use aboard Apollo 11, but only inside the Command Module. It never was allowed inside the LEM. NASA didn't want that high resolution Color camera anywhere near the lunar surface.

You would think, just based on the high political cost of a TV camera failure (assuming the real objective the Apollo program was to simply "beat the Russians to the Moon"), that they would have at least taken the color camera on board the lander as a backup, in case the SSTV camera failed.


In fact, this is exactly what was done on later missions, with the exception that the Sequential Color Camera was the primary TV camera and SSTV camera the back-up. Instead, we had only one chance to record the historic events of that day, and it would all be recorded by a black and white camera that used about as much power as single Christmas light bulb.

Imagine the political embarrassment had the SSTV camera failed to operate.

All of this really only makes sense in the context of our arguments. If NASA had nothing to hide, if the high level puppet masters that ran the program under the auspices of the various secret societies had nothing to hide, then why not send the best possible TV camera to record our historic victory over the Soviets and communism itself?

Unless, of course, they could not be sure just what the audience at home (or the honest engineers at the monitors) might actually see if they were allowed to. So they sent the worst TV system they had, which was then downgraded even more by the scan conversion process. Fahrouk El Baz, Ken Kleinknecht and Wernher Von Braun must have breathed a huge sigh of relief when the images of Armstrong came back ghostly, dark, and full of contrast.

Interestingly, the color camera was carried on Apollo 12 as the primary camera, without the SSTV as a back-up. A few minutes after deployment of the camera, Alan Bean managed to violate his training and point it directly into the sun, which badly damaged the receiver. This rendered the camera useless.

On subsequent missions, the TV transmissions got better and better. However, the Sequential Color Camera only received a gamma correction capability on the last three missions (Apollo 15, 16, and 17) and all of the transmissions were run through a bandwidth limiting "low-pass" filter which dramatically reduced the image quality.

When you put all this together, we feel it strengthens our arguments considerably. Despite the existence of a vastly superior color technology, NASA chose to send an unproven and very poor quality black and white camera to the Moon on Apollo 11.


This is exactly the behavior you would expect if the powerful cabal inside the agency was concerned about how much viewers would be able to see.


Further, when they did finally send a color camera, they ran the signal through a "brute force" filter to effectively limit the bandwidth of the color image, and then managed to "stage" an accident once they had enough test footage. On subsequent missions, the cameras got better, but were always limited in both contrast and detail by the gamma correction and low pass filter problems.

So the only existing unfiltered TV images of the lunar landings are the original SSTV images. With today's digital processing capabilities, how much we might glean from those nearly 40 year old tapes? Instead, all we know for certain is that the same agency that ordered Ken Johnston to destroy the only remaining four sets of early generation negatives and prints of the hand held Apollo photography also removed these tapes from the National Archives for "permanent retention" in their own facility.

And then promptly "lost" them.

We doubt, quite honestly, that they will ever be found.

The second breakthrough of which we spoke was the sudden, public availability of a veritable flood of new Apollo lunar images (which would ultimately turn out to be literally thousands...), placed without fanfare on the web.

These high quality "close-to-original" Apollo films - scanned at very high resolution (averaging around 16 MB) by NASA's Houston-based Johnson Space Center (JSC) - had begun to quietly be "leaked" to the general public beginning in 2006, through multiple, official NASA websites. This immense amount of data, suddenly "dumped" on the web [on such sites as the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal (ALSJ)], abruptly made possible Enterprise analyses never before practical - starting with a one-to-one "calibration" of the validity of the entire database.

By comparing the new NASA "JSC" scans to Ken Johnston's original, 30-year-old Houston data, stored safely away in his private archive for all those years, I realized we could quantitatively test the information contained in the newly-released images, by directly comparing them to the pristine details present on Ken's originally-preserved images ....

The immediate results were outstanding [Fig. E-2]

When the two versions of AS14-66-9301 ("Mitchell Under Glass" ...) were compared side-by-side, it was obvious that much of the amazing "geometric sky detail" seen on Johnston's original 1971-era Apollo 14 "C-print" (above-left), was still visible on the 2006 ALSJ scan (above-right). However, differences were also very obvious ... with Ken's 30-year-old print showing, by far, that it was MUCH closer (as it should have been) to the original NASA data acquired on the Moon than the new Apollo Lunar Surface Journal "web scans."

Since this first experiment had proven that a significant percentage of the original geometric information on Ken's print had been successfully passed on - even across the countless generations of analog copies made over those 30+ years between its original Hasselblad source negative and the much later ALSJ scans - I decided to press on with a search for a second Apollo 14 ALSJ Archive image, one that might have independently captured the same crucial "shattered dome geometry" at the Apollo 14 landing site. I quickly found it.

ALSJ Archive frame AS 14-66-9279 [Fig. E-3])-a photograph Alan Shepard took while standing on the east side of the LM - contains major elements of the same scattered light geometry as seen on Ken's version of "9301" (where Shepard was standing to the west when he took that amazing photograph)..

Though, again, nowhere near as detailed as Ken's pristine 30-year-old version, the correspondence of the major sky features in the two separate Apollo 14 images definitively, scientifically proves that the deep blue, ancient lunar glass dome - seen arching over the Edgar Mitchell on frame 9301 - is not a photographic "fluke."

In fact, after going through the entire newly-released ALSJ Archive for Apollo 14,1 ultimately found four independent Hasselblad scans - all showing the same general "towering glass geometry" visible on Ken Johnston's original print. You can't get much better scientific validation for a controversial optical phenomenon than four independent photographic confirmations!

Having these immediate positive results, I was encouraged to begin downloading as many of the newly added, high-resolution frames - from all the Apollo Lunar Missions - as I could over the next several months.


My objective: find independent, multi-mission confirmations of anomalous phenomena indicative of lunar glass-like ruins - such as the tell-tale brightening on images above sunlit lunar features. Since natural rocks and craters have sharp, solid edges, "fuzziness" of lighting along the lunar limb, for example, would be significant evidence of light-diffusion and scattering by meteor-eroded glass.

If I could identify a handful of such criteria, and then find corroboration for each of these on a succession of separate NASA photographs taken during a particular Apollo mission - such as the preceding confirmation of the diffuse "sky geometry" first seen on Ken Johnston's original Apollo 14 print - and, in addition, find similar confirmations on multiple Apollo missions... then I could consider those collective anomalous phenomena as "proven."


One striking Archive image was an Apollo 15 frame (AS15-88-12013 [Fig. E4]), taken "post-Trans Earth Injection" (TEI) - after the Service Module engine had placed the combined Command/ Service Module on a lunar escape trajectory, homeward-bound toward Earth after the successful three-day Mission to Hadley Rille.

Taken "looking back" as Apollo 15 was rapidly climbing away from the Moon, this image provides startling evidence that much of the Moon's Earth-facing hemisphere was/is "domed over"... as determined by the scattering of diffuse sunlight being reflected off remnants of the surviving "glass-like domes."


These domes are visible in this amazing image as a ghostly, bluish, cloud-like semi-circle faithfully following the curving lunar limb (see also Color Fig. 16). This intense backscattering quickly fades with altitude - like a "meteor-bombarded 'prairie fire'" - eventually blending into the expected black background of space tens of miles above the lunar surface. It looks, for all the world, exactly like the Earth's bluish "airglow limb." Except the Moon, as we all know, has no atmosphere.


So it has to be something else.

Combining this key Apollo 15 observation of the whole Moon with close-ups of this same phenomenon photographed from close-in lunar orbit (the stunning geometric glass "rebar" photographed over Sinus Medii by the crew of Apollo 10 - see Color Figs. 2 and 3) provides two, completely independent confirmations of this same anomalous light scattering phenomenon.

The only reasonable interpretation of these independent Apollo observations is that both missions were, in fact, photographing the diffuse light-scattering created by trillions of surviving fragments from miles-high, glass-like lunar domes.

But the next late developments win - hands down - the Disclosure Prize ... for revealing just how much NASA has lied to us, all these years, about what's really on the Moon.

The story begins with our long-time friend and colleague in this Enterprise investigation, Steve Troy.


As noted earlier, Steve is our "analog" photographic expert; he has spent a small private fortune over the last ten years ordering the lowest generation (best quality) hard-copy NASA lunar negatives from various NASA photographic archives including the National Space Science Data Service (NSSDC), the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory (LPL), and NASA Headquarters itself. With a NASA negative in hand, Steve then commissions a commercial photo lab to make enlarged, sectional prints - which he then both goes over almost "grain by grain" (literally, with a hand magnifying glass) as well as scans with a computer.


The result is a careful tabulation of increasing numbers of "lunar anomalies" - for future close-up imaging when new NASA (or other lunar missions) someday return to photograph the Moon again.


Some of these planned new spacecraft will contain amazing optical instruments - such as NASA's new "Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter," scheduled to begin a "meter-scale" photographic survey of the entire Moon, beginning in late 2008.

Just a few weeks before this book finally went to press, Steve forwarded an e-mail from a correspondent in Italy; the individual in question had his own NASA anomaly website and wanted Steve's opinion on some recent lunar images he'd found and posted.

After looking at the site, I was curious about the source for the high-quality NASA lunar images Steve's friend had somehow located.

A quick search revealed another Italian site - www.spacearchive.net/ -where Steve's correspondent procured the images he'd originally asked about. The "SpaceArchive" site was not only professional and well-organized (with downloadable pages of "contact sheets," arranged by specific NASA missions) it seemed to contain some truly remarkable low-generation NASA lunar images.

In fact - the best I'd ever seen, outside of Ken Johnston's 30-year-old private NASA stash.

One such image, after downloading [Fig. E-5], revealed a stunning portrait of the REAL "glass landscape" arching over Taurus-Littrow, the Apollo 17 landing site.

Blatantly visible is not only an almost blinding lunar sky - FILLED with obviously battered glass constructions - but one also riddled with "huge gaping holes" and quasi-vertical, mysterious "dark linear formations."

And, on one of the major background mountains to the SE is a huge, long, brilliant "spar"... casually leaning on the massive "massif!"

The view fully corroborates Gene Cernan's own emotional reaction to actually seeing all this, first-hand so many years ago:

"Man, you talk about a mysterious looking place!"

Here [Fig. E-6] is an annotated version of this astonishing new image.

This astonishing close-up [Fig. E-7], from frame AS 17-136-20767, confirms several extraordinary additional details of "lunar dome construction" that we've been proposing over the years - starting with the "prairie fire effect" seen along the left-hand crest (and on the far right.,.) of the massive "mountain" that dominates the view (the "mountain" is "Mons Vitruvius" - according to NASA - just another ancient, eroded lunar massif... over a mile high).


This totally anomalous "scattering phenomenon" is revealing confirmation of a key prediction of our overall "dome model" - obviously representing the surviving, battered shards of meteor-smashed glass, whose remaining density is directly proportional to their ability to scatter sun light.

The "lunar mountain" beneath this shattered glass is obviously being systematically eroded from the top down (which is why the optical density is highest just above the "mountain's" surface); this incessant micro-meteorite "rain" is thus relentlessly whittling away - over millions of years - at the vast mass of what is, in fact, the ruins of another former three-dimensional, honeycombed, mile-sized lunar structure ... an ancient lunar "arcology!"

Extending far above this ancient eroding arcology - in this brightness-enhanced version of the original NASA image - is not the pure black of space expected on any official photograph taken from the surface of the Moon, but an obviously three-dimensional matrix, of more porous, semi-transparent, similar light-scattering material, effectively turning the lunar blackness overhead into a glittering, shiny "curtain"...

Photographic confirmation of Alan Bean's own haunting lunar memories ...

"up there, space has a real shiny look. It reminded me a little bit of (black] patent-leather shoes..."

In our continuing analysis of "the real Moon," this one image is now total confirmation of the cumulative "optical depth effect" of literally tens of miles of an extremely sparse, now almost totally obliterated (otherwise, the Lunar Module Challenger couldn't have gotten down through it safely to the surface... and returned to orbit!), former full-blown lunar glass dome... arching far above the surface of the Taurus-Littrow Valley.

And, if you look closely at this image, you will also see - apparently imprisoned within this all-encompassing light-colored "matrix" - a few surviving, larger fragments... more-resistant objects "still hanging" above Mons Vitruvius... embedded in the glass! (These cannot be, by the way, stars or other distant background reflections - the photographic exposure times on the lunar surface were far too short).

But the most amazing thing, by far, is the gigantic, unquestionably artificial-looking "linear spar," leaning up against the side of Mons Vitruvius ... gently sagging - like a "Titan's straw" - under the obvious effects of lunar gravity!

At the upper end, where this amazing artifact is visibly extending out of the shadow of the supporting "mountain," there is some kind of obvious "mechanical linkage." There is also a hint of a corresponding mechanical "fitting" is attached to the lower end, a thin filament partially hidden beyond and below the relatively near-by lunar horizon. This then raises the obvious amazing question:

Did Gene Cernan and Harrison Schmidt, during their first EVA, drive the lunar rover the few miles to the lower end of this amazing artifact... and retrieve an obvious sample of "lunar dome construction" for return to Earth! And, would they 'remember" ... if they had?

Stunned by discovering such an obviously pristine NASA frame - and on a public, international website - I immediately downloaded three, sequentially numbered similar images of Taurus-Littrow, also listed at the site... and promptly confirmed even more extraordinary aspects of this amazing scene.

On a wide-angle panorama [Fig. E-8] - assembled by taking four of these Hasselblad frames and fitting them together - the pervasive light-colored "matrix" in the sky is revealed to extend across the entire Valley; the "holes" and "dark, vertical formations" are clearly the result of "something" smashing through the glass, and removing a significant fraction of the "light-scattering material" in those locations.


Exactly what you would expect of an extraordinarily ancient, physically real "lunar dome" ....

The "prairie fire effect" of the densest, surviving glass still covering individual features underneath this former dome, can be seen in this panorama to extend all along the optical "ridgeline," formed by the silhouettes of the other "massifs" that create the southern boundary of the Taurus-Littrow Valley - from "Mons Vitruvius" (on the far left) ... to "South Massif (on the right). The glass is apparently densest just over the summit of South Massif, indicating that (maybe), as Keith Laney has proposed, this is the "youngest arcology" built within the Valley ... of course, at "19.5."

[Fig. E-9] is a close-up of the center-section of mysterious "dark streaks" - and the stark "missing slices" in the glass-like material still hanging in the sky.
The ultimate political explanation for the sudden appearance of this astonishing set of original NASA images - and on an international website! - would be extremely revealing.


But even without knowing the details (like how a webmaster of an obscure Italian NASA archive site suddenly came by untouched, original NASA images - and of the real Taurus-Littrow - photographed over 30 years ago by Schmidt and Cernan), we can certainly speculate.

In the same timeframe that official NASA websites in this Country are abruptly posting thousands of never-before-seen "best" scanned NASA images of the Apollo Program, I find it hard to believe the appearance of a set of really best lunar images (apart from Ken Johnston's, of course) - and on a foreign website - "just happened" to occur simultaneously; this really looks like a deliberate leak from "someone" inside NASA, with access to some of the astonishing originally suppressed Apollo imaging.

And, the "coincidental" email to Steve Troy, which prompted me to do a bit of searching - just as Mike and I were wrapping up this book - is also just a bit too cute in terms of timing...

Bottom line: the stunning "Italian images" are profoundly revealing - not just for what they show... but for what they politically confirm:

That the other recently scanned and released Apollo images, on the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal website (and others) - stated as "coming directly from original JSC film" did not. That, like everything else with NASA - going back to its very creation just under half a century ago - they are merely another carefully controlled version of the Truth...

Which "someone" inside NASA apparently decided to expose - by "leaking" (with exquisite timing and "plausible deniability") a smidgeon of stunning real Apollo data to this Italian website.

Or, to paraphrase John Erlichmann (of Watergate notoriety):

The ALSI images represent, at best, "just another limited 'NASA hangout.'

Speaking of revolutionary NASA space photography ....

Another major, late development was the sudden acquisition of the first, long-awaited MRO image of the Face on Mars.

For literally a year, we (and a lot of other folks...) had been impatiently and intensely looking forward to the first Cydonia image that would be taken (due to overwhelming "popular demand" - according to NASA spokespersons) by MRO's "HiRISE" - the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment telescope/ camera. HiRISE - with a 19.5-inch-wide telescope mirror (I kid you not!), and CCD camera capable of acquiring images over 20,000 pixels wide - represents by far the largest and most powerful imaging system ever sent to Mars."

As we were closing out the book, NASA finally, quietly, acquired and released from HiRISE the first truly spy-camera quality, ultra-high-resolution image of the Face [Fig. E-10]. At slightly less than "11 inches per pixel" (compared to previous "high-resolution" images of some ~4 feet per pixel) the MRO Face image represents, by far, the best ever taken of this still intensely controversial Martian surface feature.

As usual, all the critics immediately proclaimed that the new Face image "finally, overwhelmingly, proves that the 'face' is just a pile of rocks!" Not quite....
As with any work of art, there is the persistent problem that I have dubbed in previous years "the Gigi Factor" (from the classic 1950's film by the same name, in which Maurice Chevalier plaintively asks in song "have I been standing up too close... or back too far?"); if you're too far way, you won't be able to recognize the art; if you're too close, all you will see are brush strokes ....

In all the typical presentations of the Face on Mars, the image above is how it is inevitably published: a small-scale reproduction, where various folks then throw around totally subjective opinions on "what it looks like."

After over 30 years, and probably a hundred (yes, a hundred ...) repeated imagine of "The Face" since 1998 - curiously acquired by an Agency which repeatedly, simultaneously, professes with each new image "this is an object of NO scientific interest..." - you'd think people would pretty much be past repeating the same tired "instant reactions" to each retaking of "new" images.

They're not.

Of course, after the original first "new" imaging of the Face, by NASA's Mars Surveyor spacecraft in 1998, we at Enterprise immediately realized that trying to evaluate the potential artificial possibilities for this object (and its surrounding structures) - based on "what does it look like?" - were not only unscientific ... they were pointless. There is no possibility of determining the objective reality of a subjective "work of art" - and on another planet! - via such unscientific, "opinion-based" criteria, let alone "proving" it... to anyone.

Thus, we have waited patiently (for more than 25 years ...) for NASA's space technology to evolve (or, be "allowed" to evolve ... a la "Brookings") to the point where an unmanned robotic mission could be sent to Mars with a powerful enough telescope/camera to actually see the structural elements that, if the Face is artificial, have to be there:

Things like "rooms," and "walls" with exposed "beams," "girders," etc. etc. With the new MRO Face image-that has now occurred.

So, what do we finally see close-up in the new Face image? With a resolution per pixel of about a foot (!), and a file size of over 300 megabytes, the resolution is finally good enough to detect these critical, small-scale architectural elements from orbit!

In this case, to prove the Face is artificial, we have to see the "brush strokes" - if this is, in fact, an intelligent mile-sized work of art.

And, we do!

Proof of the scientific validity (and practicality) of this approach came in the months leading up to this unannounced April, 2007 acquisition of MRO's first image of the Face.


Soon after the spacecraft began routine science operations (in September, 2006) MRO was commanded to take an image of one of NASA's unmanned "stars" still operating on the Martian surface, the Opportunity Mars Rover - perched on the edge of a half-mile-wide Martian impact crater in the "Meridianii" region of the planet. From its circular orbit of about 180 statute miles straight overhead, the MRO ~ 19.5-inch HiRISE telescope/camera combination looked down ... and snapped an astonishingly detailed picture of a known "man-made artifact" on the surface of Mars.

As can be seen in this comparative enlargement, not only were the ~ 5-inch Rover wheel tracks in the sand easily visible from orbit (!), the shadow of the 3-inch-wide, 3-foot-high camera mast [Fig. E-ll] - stretching out across the Martian Meridianni desert in the late afternoon sun - was also clearly visible... from 180 miles!

If there were "eroded walls and girders" on the Face (and on the other artificial structures all over Mars that we've identified), this stunning demonstration of the visual acuity of the MRO "HiRISE camera" proved that we would be able to detect them!

Provided -

The MRO images (unlike other NASA photographs discussed earlier...) are NOT "tampered with."

Given the demonstrable hold "Brookings" has had on the "honest side" of NASA for so long, the relentless way the dishonest side has used this aging 1950's sociological Study to repeatedly justify its continuing censorship of "what is really out there" - to instill an almost palpable fear in those scientists and engineers who might be moved to openly discuss what NASA's really found in the way of "ET artifacts" on other planets in the solar system - the fate of such a powerful new tool orbiting Mars, and the stunning images it can obviously now acquire, was (and is ..) still quite uncertain, even at this writing...

So, when the first NASA MRO "Face image" was suddenly released, just before we closed out the final sections of this book, we (along with everyone else) truly did not know what to expect. However, after spending many days enlarging and analyzing different sections of this enormous object (the Face possesses almost two square miles of exposed surface area for such analyses...), we have came to three critical conclusions:

A) This NASA image is NOT up to the technical standards of previous MRO images of Mars - such as the Odyssey Rover photo just discussed; for some inexplicable reason, the MRO "Face" image possesses a significant amount of what imaging scientists call "noise" - both as "random noise" across the entire image, and in the form of rhythmic, handed patterns. The latter appear as equally-spaced bars, both vertical and on a diagonal. This peculiar and intrusive "banding" tends to obscure the real, geometrically designed surface patterns we are searching for underneath (which may explain their presence ...) that represent the signature of actual artificial Martian ruins.

B) There are portions of this image, on the Face itself and on nearby formations, which show the tell-tale signs of image tampering with a "blur-tool," a device used to obscure detail in a digital CCD image such as this one.

But 2) despite this handicap, there are now clearly-defined remnants of artificial constructions - ruins! - easily visible all across this extraordinary object... as you can see [Fig. E-12].

In this composite MRO Face image, the small area to the right of the "nose area" (outlined) is the "footprint" of the enlarged section (inset). In this enlargement one can easily discern row upon row of obviously collapsed geometric ruins.


The striking, orderly arrangement includes a blatant, stair-stepped "wall" descending through the center of the image, as well as a host of other, equally rectilinear ruins below this blatantly geometric configuration.

The key to proper interpretation of aerial or satellite imagery of man-made ruins on Earth lies in noting the multiple examples of "parallel walls" and redundant rectilinear geometry; natural geologic features cannot present - except in very restricted contexts (where other geologic clues must also be present) - these repeating demonstrations of redundant geometric regularities and 90-degree relationships: right angle, enclosed rooms; repeating linear wall alignments; and redundant examples of geometrically organized "uniform-width" features.

Intelligently-designed ruins always do.

So, in comparing this same MRO sectional enlargement [Fig. E-13] with an aerial photograph of a 5 century terrestrial middle eastern ruin, note the number of strikingly parallel, regular geometric features that both images present, including those which even look strikingly like "avenues" and "roads" in the MRO Face image! And ... all those parallel-width walls.

Further, in spite of obvious evidence of substantial erosion and decay, redundant examples are present in this MRO enlargement of entire "enclosed courtyards," "deliberately aligned constructions," and evidence of a "large-scale, organizational plan."

It is the presence of these multiple examples of "recognizable, architectural geometries" - in even this small region of the Face - that now confirms that this extraordinary object is, indeed, host to multiple artificial structures.

But, there is more.

Examining another region of the Face - this one approximately a mile from the first location, further down on the flat "platform section" at the base of the "chin area" - reveals another type of equally obvious constructions [Fig. E-14].

Sand and debris-filled, geometric "cavities" - strikingly similar to ancient Anasazi ruins in the American Southwest [Fig. E-15].

The fact that these ruined structures look somewhat different from the previous examples high above, near the Face's "nose," is due to two critical conditions:

1) The original architectural geometry was truly different - composed of larger (and deeper) individual "cells," consistent with a structural foundation for the vast mass of the entire "Face"


2), the ruins' current physical location - on the flat "platform area," at the base of the "chin" slope - allows all the eroded debris from higher on that slope to cascade down ... into these deep geometric cavities of former "rooms."

A third striking example of "artificiality" is on the forehead of the Face [Fig. E-16].

Captured in this region of the MRO Face image (outline-above), this geometric structure is a ~ 800-foot-long, multi-storied ruin - now almost totally obliterated by time and erosion. It is located just below the boundary between the heavily-eroded "cubicle transition zone" of a former surface coating above the "forehead," and an even more eroded, flat, "depression area," located above the Face's "eyebrow ridge."

The western end of this multi-leveled structure is the most recognizable as artificial - revealing complex, 3-D rectilinear geometry and parallel aligned shadows. There are additional ruins to the east, casting additional tell-tale geometric shadows on the patterned "ground." A similar-scaled set of "Iranian hilltop forts" [Fig. E-17] reveal comparable manmade ruined structures here on Earth.

Our next example is even more extraordinary - once you get past the fact that the sheer existence of ANY "ruins" on the Face is totally "extraordinary" - because NONE of these obviously artificial structures should even be there ....

Here [Fig. E-18] is where this striking example lurks - at the base of the Face's eastern "platform."

As can be seen from the detailed image comparison (below - top and bottom), what we are seeing is a "small," strikingly rectangular collapsed section of the Martian surface at the base of the much larger "Face platform" - an in-fallen section, measuring approximately 1000 feet long by several hundred feet wide ... and several hundred feet deep.


Fascinating, vertical striations can be seen all along the right hand (eastern) edge of this deep "chasm," indicative of surviving structural columns - still holding up a multi-layered section of exposed, three-dimensional, distinctly honey-combed artificial surface structure [Fig. E-19].


Additional three-dimensional geometric patterns, carefully aligned with the major rectangular axis of this "collapse feature," can be seen further to the east (above - top right) - presenting an overall pattern of "a massive, three-dimensional, inexorably deteriorating artificial complex..."

The impression of "looking down through multiple levels ... of a vast, three-dimensional, highly-battered architectural framework..." is now inescapable [Fig. E-20].
Our last example is obviously (since, I've saved the best for last...) the most amazing of these enlarged "snapshots" I've been able to capture from the full resolution MRO image: a series of obviously high-tech, obviously collapsed entire 3-D structures ... located on the "chin" of the Face - specifically, on the now highly eroded "bottom lip" [Fig. E-21].

An enlarged comparison - between this magnified section of the MRO image, and an entire, tilted (from a recent local earthquake) modern apartment house in South America [Fig. E-22] - illustrates the crucial point; if you look carefully at the top image, you will notice a bewildering number of straight lines, sharp edges, 90-degree angles, flat sides and more of those "parallel-width walls." These are all unnatural features, never seen on any ordinary "geological" formation, and certainly not in such extraordinary numbers and close, repetitive association.

These are the inevitable hallmark of closely-associated, shattered and eroding hightech structures, whose sheer presence is an overwhelming confirmation of the completely artificial nature of the Face.

As can be seen in the lower image [Fig. E-22], these same striking geometric relationships are found in any modern city - the inevitable consequence of the construction of repetitive, multi-storied structures formed from basic geometric units.

So, what happens if you partially destroy (tilt, or even knock down) one or more of these constructed, closely adjacent units?

The result is vividly illustrated in [Fig. E-22]: you then see multiple sets of mutually conflicting rectilinear geometry ... exactly like what we see, over and over again, in this astonishing small section of the Face!

And, if you look carefully at an annotated enlargement [Fig. E-23], you can even see the infamous "beams and girders" we've been predicting for over a decade now, that had to be confirmed in any sufficiently high-resolution image of this ancient "high-tech structure"....

Because..., nothing in this image is natural. Let me repeat that: nothing that you see in this MRO enlargement [Fig. E-23]is natural.

Natural geology doesn't come with "parallel walls," "multiple, 3-D planes," "twisted beams" - or repetitive examples of obvious "thin girders."
High-tech structures always do ... regardless of their specific composition.

We have been proposing for over 15 years that the Face is, in fact, just such a massive assemblage of ancient, high-tech buildings - a literal "headquarters." MRO's stunning first image of The Face on Mars - and the multiple examples we've presented and discussed in this brief analysis of that first image - now totally support that view.

We see the ubiquitous, redundant presence - across all sections of this mile-wide, upturned "statute" - of striking "geometric patterns," "parallel walls," "rectilinear collapsed, sand-filled rooms" and even the elevated remains of a few, still clearly-recognizable, entire, tilted building fragments!

After more than 20 years of investigating Cydonia, after proposing test after scientific test for "archaeology," to essentially "deaf ears" in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and even (at times) not just apathy but against heavy official opposition from this same Agency ... it's finally: Game... set... match!

The "Face on Mars" - after over a generation of ambiguous evidence, rancorous debate and even outright NASA-manipulated data (certainly, the first MGS Face image in 1998) - turns out to be exactly what we said it was at the United Nations in 1992.

The most unique example of an extraordinary honeycombed arcology in the solar system - because it looks like us, or, something we once were.
Still standing on the planet Mors.

Testimony to an extraordinary solar-system full of ancient, ineffable ruins ... left by an incredible civilization that (for reasons we must now figure out, and soon), completely, mysteriously... disappeared.

Leaving only us.



The most serendipitous Enterprise discovery in all our years, of course, is "C3-PO," lying at the bottom of "Shorty Crater" on the Moon. His discovery, more than any other aspect of this long investigation, changes everything.

If he is a genuine thinking robot, endowed with bona fide "artificial intelligence" (AI), he represents an entirely new way of looking at this unknown, now-vanished brilliant civilization ... which left countless wonders abandoned, not only across the Moon, but all across the solar system.

The implications of that one fact - if it is a "fact" - and if the astronauts found and brought "him" home (or another robot like him - from any of the other Apollo landing sites) - obviously would have sent Shockwaves throughout Washington ... if not (certainly among the "in crowd") all around the world. This discovery, not "economics," or "lack of interest in the Moon" by the American people during the end of the Apollo Program, in our opinion was quite likely the real reason why the entire Program was so suddenly and so unceremoniously terminated.

And, why no one has gone near the Moon ... for almost forty years.

Because, his stunning presence on the Moon compellingly indicates that "Man" may have been preceded in this solar system, in addition to his own ancestors, by a vast integrated population of "other intelligences." The overriding question then becomes, in light of "Brookings," what if there are others like him "out there" - but - still functioning?!

What if this was NASA's real "Dark Mission" all along ... to find and bring to Earth a functioning member of this projected AI population - a robot that the in-crowd could ultimately interrogate about the literal "secrets of the Universe"... firsthand?



As we go to press, there is much that could not be covered in this volume, simply because of space and time considerations.


We have demonstrated the "what" behind NASA's peculiar behavior vis-a-vis the "artifacts question" over the years. We have shown that their original assertions about the Face and Cydonia - that it was just a trick of light and shadow - are fallacious. We have demonstrated their duplicitous behavior with the Catbox image and the THEMIS infrared data.


We have shown that NASA and its appendant bodies, like JPL, are willing to go to extreme lengths to disabuse the public from the notion that Mars once harbored life. They've even gone as far as grinding a possible fossil to dust rather than study it openly. Can one seriously doubt at this point that NASA has been manipulative - at the least - around the question of past or present life on Mars?

We have further shown that there is an undeniable "Orion-Osiris" Egyptian connection to both the Apollo program and our new space initiative.


We have shown that all of the major power brokers inside NASA at the time of the Apollo program had connections to one of three secretive societies. And each of these societies has as its core faith a reverence for the same three ancient Egyptian gods; Isis Osiris and Horus. We have shown, over and over again, that key moments in NASA's exploration of the solar system have been planned around "stellar rituals" that pay homage to these long forgotten "gods" of ancient Egypt.

What we recognize we have yet to prove is the "why" of this strange behavior. The Brookings report alone seems insufficient to explain the artifacts cover-up and even less adequate to explain the occult naming rituals and curious affinity for stellar alignments. After forty years of Star Trek and Star Wars, we would seem to have a populace that is not simply conditioned, but eager to find extraterrestrial life, or its remnants.


Yet still, NASA hesitates, ignoring the obvious evidence and cloaking their true objectives in posters and paintings, spacecraft names and odd rituals. To find this truth, we will have to look back in time once again, not only to the occult history of NASA itself, but to our nation's founding and our own esoteric history as a people.

Finally, we must ask the question that NASA fears the most; that it must never allow to be asked:

"If there are ruins on Mars, and ruins on the Moon, what happened to the builders of them?"

If this was Apollo's ultimate "deep black mission" - a Mission that John F. Kennedy was somehow convinced to undertake at the beginnings of his Administration - is this also, as we've asked earlier, the real reason for his murder?

Was his discovery of NASA's potential secret motivation for Apollo the hidden reason he quietly decided to turn around and share our lunar program with our "arch enemies" only a few months after its announcement? Did those protracted, behind-the-scenes negotiations with Nikita Khrushchev in the end, get him killed?

Based on the disturbing, compelling mosaic this combined scientific and documentary evidence now paints of NASA - and its unquestionably treasonous actions over these last ~40 years - we believe we have finally grasped the outlines - and have attempted to accurately reflect them hereof the staggering truth that has silently, simultaneously, both impelled and cowed the Space Agency for all these years:

That, the Human Race lives in a solar system surrounded by a vast array of "silent, ancient ghosts"... countless extinct "extraterrestrial humans," just like ourselves - in fact, our own "great, great, great, great, great, great... ancestors" - who once lived ... and built... and walked amid what are still the almost incomprehensible remains of an awesome extraterrestrial civilization, spread across more than one adjoining world.

That, this is the ultimate meaning of "the Face on Mars"...

That, this is the real, hidden meaning of Neil Armstrong's infamous (and still deliberately "spun") "misstatement" - as he stepped for the first time onto the surface of the Moon that unforgettable July 20 night in 1969.


With almost a billion people watching live, Armstrong uttered those still endlessly debated words:

"That's one small step for Man... one giant leap for Mankind..."

What Armstrong was actually acknowledging - to a "hidden audience" in code that night - as he, representing "Man," stepped onto the lunar surface for perhaps the first time in tens of thousands of years... was that the human race ("Man") is only a subset of a vastly larger, vastly more ancient, vastly more knowledgeable, but genetically related "Mankind."


And that we had somehow crawled up from the ashes of that once grand civilization, to do the same as they had done, to travel to another world, and touch the face of the gods...

That - this is the True History of the Human Race, the clandestine reason for the creation and naming of "Apollo"... if not the ultimate "Dark Mission" for the existence of NASA itself? Was this the "protective layer of truth" that Armstrong implored the young people of America to remove at the 25 anniversary celebration of Apollo 11?

We may never know. After all, as one of our intelligence sources admitted about NASA some years ago:

"The lie is different at every level."

Richard C. Hoagland, first and foremost, would like to acknowledge all the folks he has met on this incomparable journey, who have contributed to where we are today. There are far too many of you, across far too many years, to thank individually. You know who you are.

However, I must recognize some of the more outstanding contributions personally, starting with the talents of my friend and co-author in this daunting project, Mike Bara; put simply, without Mike this volume would have never reached your hands. Adam Parfrey, our esteemed publisher, also deserves considerable credit in that vein - not only for his unshakable faith in the merits of this work, but for inordinate patience in the face of almost interminable delays in seeing its completion.

I also want to send a special "thanks" to Nick and Dana, and Kynthia - as well as Ken J., Steve T, Keith L.... the "other" Keith ("Scotty" R.)... Stan T, Jay W., David I., David W., Tom VE, Rick S., Paola H., Paul D., Hollace D., Tim V., Bill A., Robin W., George G., Ted St. R., Arthur A., Alan C, Michael M., Doris L-M., Boris F., Patty M., David K, Charlie B., Bobby T, and Ron G.

Each of you know "why."

A special remembrance also to those colleagues whose contributions were invaluable, but who are no longer able to contribute - at least, not from this dimension: David L., Bruce D., Gene M and Gene R.

To three special furry friends: Luvcky, Shadow and Sasha - whose boundless loyalty and simple love are unmistakable examples of why family has never been a species definition; and, further in that regard, to the entire "Coast to Coast AM family," whose unwavering support has been a crucial reminder all these years of why we're doing this - together.


And to Art and George - for keeping us a "family."
Finally, to Robin - without whom, literally, I would not be here...

I love you.

Michael Bara would like to acknowledge the following persons, without which this project would never have been completed: as always, my friend, mentor and co-author Mr. Hoagland, the smartest man I have ever known, Leslie, who changed my life twice, Michael, of whom I am very proud, my brother Dave, Alyssa and Sherri, whose friendship has meant more to me than I can articulate, Zaphod, Geo and Indy, who were constant companions as I worked on this, my mom and dad, and my sister Kelli.


Steve Troy and Keith Laney, whose indefatigable work has led to many new discoveries.

About the Authors

Richard C. Hoagland was science advisor to Walter Cronkite and CBS News during the Apollo program, former curator at the Hayden Planetarium and consultant to NASA.


He is the co-originator, along with Eric Burgess, of the British Interplanetary Society, of the "Pioneer Plaque" currently carrying a message from mankind on the Pioneer 10 spacecraft. He is the author of The Europa Enigma, the first extensive scientific article proposing the mechanism by which life might exist in the oceans of Jupiter's moon Europa.


This article became the basis for Arthur C. Clarke's novel 2010. He is the principal investigator of the Enterprise Mission, an independent scientific research organization dedicated to the examination of more than 40 years of NASA data pointing to the possibility of archaeological ruins on Mars and the Moon.


In 1993, the Angstrom Foundation, in Stockholm, Sweden, awarded the International Angstrom Medal of Excellence in Science to Hoagland for that continuing research. He is the author of the best selling The Monuments of Mars - A City on the Edge of Forever, now in its fifth edition.

Michael Bara is an aerospace structural engineer with more than twenty-five years' experience in the field. He is currently a CAD/CAM consultant for one of the largest engineering software solution providers in North America. He is the author of numerous articles on the Enterprise Mission website, as well as on Art Bell's website.


He is curator of the lunar Anomalies Homepage, a website dedicated to the investigation of potentially artificial structures on the Moon.
