Space Station Moon 

It was mankind's finest hour, the greatest technological achievement of the 20th Century--the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon. But the Apollo program was short-lived, and after Apollo 17 in 1972, we never went back.

Storyline

Mythology has lore about the sky before there was a moon. Many strange stories intertwined with first hand experience from Apollo Astronauts who went to the moon. Lights , blurry glowing objects have been seen on the moon since 1835. As the moon may even be hollow and carted into position. Written by stephen scialli

Rick Stroud, Author, "The Book of the Moon" states "The reason the moon has phases is that the earth blocks the light of the sun as the moon moves around the earth, so it incrementally gets a little bit more of the suns rays". If this guy should know that the only time the earth blocks the light of the sun is during a lunar eclipse. The sun lights half of the moon all the time and the phases of the moon are the result of the shape of the illuminated portion of the moon as observed from earth. See more »

What some scientists and say about the moon.
11 October 2019 | by dvwsophorajaponicaSee all my reviews

Before condemning this episode, do some research on the moon. I've put together some quotes from scientists etc.. regarding the moon.

"Condemnation without investigation is the highest form of ignorance."

  • Albert Einstein


Here is a collection of interesting quotes from scientists, authors, researchers, NASA insiders and star-gazers relating to the enigmatic and often inexplicable nature of the moon:

Irwin Shapiro, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

"The best possible explanation for the Moon is observational error - the Moon doesn't exist.'

"The Moon is bigger than it should be, apparently older than it should be and much lighter in mass than it should be. It occupies an unlikely orbit and is so extraordinary that all existing explanations for its presence are fraught with difficulties are none of them could be considered remotely watertight."

Farouk El Baz, NASA

"If water vapour is coming from the Moon's interior is this serious. It means that there is a drastic distinction between the different phases of the lunar interior - that the interior is quite different from what we have seen on the surface."

Mikhail Vasin, Alexander Shcherbakov, Societ Academy of Sciences, 1970.

"Is the moon a creation of an alien intelligence?"

Dr Harold Urey, Nobel Prize for Chemistry

"I'm terribly puzzled by the rocks from the Moon and in particular of their titanium content."

Dr S Ross Taylor, Geochemist of lunar chemical analysis,

Said the problem was that maria plains the size of Texas had to be covered with melted rock containing fluid titanium. He said you would not expect titanium ever to be hot enough to do that, even on Earth, and no one has ever suggested that the Moon was hotter than the Earth.

"What could distribute titanium in this way? Highly advanced technology developed and operated by entities that are immensely more technologically advance than humans."

Dr. Gordon MacDonald, NASA

"it would seem that the Moon is more like a hollow than a homogenous sphere'. He surmised that the data must have been wrong - but it wasn't."

Carl Sagan, Cosmologist,

"A natural satellite cannot be a hollow object."

Dr. Sean C Solomon, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

"The Lunar Orbiter experiments had vastly improved knowledge of the Moon's gravitational field and indicated the frightening possibility that the Moon might be hollow."

University of Arizona Lon Hood "We knew that the Moon's core was small, but we didn't know it was this small... This really does add weight to the idea that the Moon's origin is unique, unlike any other terrestrial body."

NASA scientists The Apollo 12 mission to the Moon in November 1969 set up seismometers and then intentionally crashed the Lunar Module causing an impact equivalent to one ton of TNT. The shockwaves built up for eight minutes, and NASA scientists said the Moon 'rang like a bell.

Maurice Ewing, American geophysicist and oceanographer

"As for the meaning of it, I'd rather not make an interpretation right now, but it is as though someone had struck a bell, say, in the belfry of the a church a single blow and found that the reverberation from it continued for 30 minutes."

Ken Johnson, Supervisor of the Data and Photo Control department during the Apollo missions

"The Moon not only rang like a bell, but the whole Moon wobbled in such a precise way that it was almost as though it had gigantic hydraulic damper struts inside it."

Moon rocks have been found to contain processed metals, including brass and mica, and the elements Uranium 236 and Neptunium 237 that have never been found to occur naturally.

Dr. D L Anderson, Professor of geophysics and director of the seismological laboratory, California Institute of Technology

"The Moon is made inside out and that its inner and outer compositions should be the other way around."

Dr. Robin Brett, NASA Scientist

"It seems much easier to explain the nonexistence of the moon than its existence."

Isaac Asimov, American author and professor of biochemistry at Boston University and Science Fiction writer. Asimov was one of the most prolific writers of all time.

"We cannot help but come to the conclusion that the Moon by rights ought not to be there. The fact that it is, is one of the strokes of luck almost too good to accept... Small planets, such as Earth, with weak gravitational fields, might well lack satellites... ... In general then, when a planet does have satellites, those satellites are much smaller than the planet itself. Therefore, even if the Earth has a satellite, there would be every reason to suspect... that at best it would be a tiny world, perhaps 30 miles in diameter. But that is not so. Earth not only has a satellite, but it is a giant satellite, 2160 miles in diameter. How is it then, that tiny Earth has one? Amazing."

"The Moon, which has no atmosphere and no magnetic field, is basically a freak of nature"

The Apollo 12 mission to the Moon in November 1969 set up seismometers and then intentionally crashed the Lunar Module causing an impact equivalent to one ton of TNT. The shockwaves built up for eight minutes, and NASA scientists said the Moon 'rang like a bell'. Maurice Ewing, a co-director of the seismic experiment, told a news conference that he had no idea why this had happened: 'As for the meaning of it, I'd rather not make an interpretation right now, but it is as though someone had struck a bell, say, in the belfry of a church a single blow and found that the reverberation from it continued for 30 minutes.'

Dr Frank Press from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology said that for a 'rather small impact' to produce an effect that lasted for 30 minutes was 'quite beyond the range of our experience'. The Apollo 13 mission to the Moon in 1970 was aborted due to potentially catastrophic technical problems, and the Saturn V launch vehicle, weighing 15 tonnes, was crashed into the Moon about 100 miles from where the previous mission had left the seismometer. When the launch vehicle made impact with the equivalent of eleven tonnes of TNT, NASA scientists said the Moon 'reacted like a gong' and continued to vibrate for three hours and twenty minutes to a depth of up to 25 miles. Ken Johnson was a supervisor of the Data and Photo Control department during the Apollo missions, working for a company contracted to NASA. He told Who Built the Moon? author, Alan Butler, that the Moon not only rang like a bell, but the whole Moon 'wobbled' in such a precise way that it was 'almost as though it had gigantic hydraulic damper struts inside it'. All of which would explain why the Moon vibrates in exactly the same way every time it moves closer to Earth. The Moon was hit by a meteor with the power of 200 tonnes of TNT in 1972. This unleashed enormous shockwaves deep into the interior, but none came back.

The outer surface of the Moon is extremely hard and contains minerals like titanium. Moon rocks have been found to contain processed metals, including brass and mica, and the elements uranium 236 and neptunium 237 that have never been found to occur naturally. Uranium 236 is a long-lived radioactive nuclear waste and is found in spent nuclear fuel and reprocessed uranium. Neptunium 237 is a radioactive metallic element and a by-product of nuclear reactors and the production of plutonium. How the heck did this stuff get into Moon rocks? They also found iron particles that don't rust, and again, this does not happen naturally.
