LUNA: What Is This Strange Thing Orbiting Earth?

Three theories have been postulated to explain the moon, none
of them really worth their salt. The first is that the moon
was created from the same cosmic dust cloud at the same time
as Earth about 4.6 billion years ago. The second is that the
moon was torn from the Pacific Basin which later filled with
water. The third, generally accepted by most scientists, is
that the moon was captured by the Earth as it wandered into
our gravitational field.

The mechanics involved in such a celestial capture are
enormous and even NASA scientist Dr. Robin Brett admits, "It
seems much easier to explain the nonexistence of the moon than
its existence."

Over 99% of the rocks returned from the moon were found to be
at least 90% older than the rocks found on Earth, ranging from
3.6 billion to 5.3 billion years old. The area where the lunar
rocks were chosen was thought to be one of the youngest on the
moon. The oldest rocks found on Earth are only 3.7 billion
years old, leading some scientists to conclude that our moon
may have been formed eons before our sun was born.

Another, even more perplexing puzzle is the discovery that the
lunar soil is older by at least a billion years than the rocks
which rest upon it. This seems completely unexplainable since
soil has always been understood to be the residue of eroded or
decomposed rocks. Analysis of the soil revealed that it is not
rock residue and, therefore, has its origins somewhere else.

One of the strangest of all lunar enigmas is that when the
lunar module ascent stages crashed onto the surface of the
moon, the moon rang like a hollow sphere, vibrations lasting
for up to four hours! While NASA officials are reluctant to
postulate that the moon may be hollow, they cannot otherwise
explain it.

After some difficulty, astronauts were able to drill into the
extremely hard surface of the lunar maria to recover samples
of rare minerals such as beryllium, zirconium, titanium and
yttrium which were fused with surrounding rock at temperatures
of about 4500.

In addition to these rare minerals, American and Soviet probes
recovered pure iron samples. These iron particles have not
oxidized, even after two decades of exposure to Earth's
atmosphere. Although there is an iron pillar of unknown origin
and age in New Delhi, India that has also never rusted,
scientists are unable to explain it.

Uranium, thorium and potassium samples were found to be
unusually radioactive. Using thermal equipment, astronauts
discovered that heat flow near the Apennine Range was so great
that scientists on Earth were convinced the area was ready to
melt and that the moon's core must be very hot. The core is
not hot, however, and, indeed, if it has a core at all, it is
quite cold. In addition to being extremely radioactive, the
amount of material discovered is quite great, leaving
scientists to wonder about its origin. If it came from the
interior of the moon, how did it get to the surface? Since
some scientists agree it could not have come from the interior
(since the moon appears to be a hollow sphere), how did all
this radioactive material find its way to the surface of the
moon and when did it happen?

Early Apollo missions found no traces of water on the lunar
surface. But NASA scientists were stunned later when they
detected a water vapor cloud greater than 100 square miles in
size. This water vapor appears to have come from inside the
moon, according to NASA testimony. Clouds, fog and other
surface changes have been observed on the lunar surface for

Six different 19th century astronomers reported having
observed a fog which obscured details in the floor of the
crater Plato. This would seem to contradict the idea that the
moon's low gravity is incapable of holding an atmosphere.

Lunar exploration has also revealed that much of the surface
is covered with a glassy tile-like material, suggesting that
it has been scorched by some unknown source of intense heat.
Analysis has proven that the glass was not produced by meteor
impacts but is nearly identical to glazing caused by atomic
explosions on Earth. Nuclear glazing combined with the extreme
high radioactive surface materials might indicate that a
nuclear war or severe explosion occurred on the lunar surface
at some time in the past.

Lunar rocks were found to be highly magnetized, when such
magnetism was neither expected nor imagined. Again, NASA
experts are unable to explain.

Magnetic Anomalies discovered on the surface of the moon
beneath the circular maria (which, incidentally, are found
almost exclusively on one side of the moon) are so strong in
places that they actually effect the orbits of the lunar
spacecraft. These massive concentrations, located almost
centrally under the maria, cause orbiters to dip toward the
surface and to accelerate as they pass over. While they appear
to be huge concentrations of dense, heavy matter, NASA
scientists have no suitable explanations.

Since the moon is smaller than the Earth and has a
gravitational attraction one-sixth that of Earth (as we've
been told since Sir Issac Newton formulated the Law in 1666)
the neutral gravitation point between Earth and Luna should be
quite close to the lunar surface. We've been told, and it has
been repeatedly reinforced, that the neutral point is
approximately 24,000 miles from the center of the moon or
about 220,000 miles from the center of the Earth.

Using this figure, U.S. and Soviet scientists began hurling
objects at the lunar surface, the first being the Luna 1
Russian probe on January 2, 1959. It passed within 4,660 miles
of the moon before disappearing into deep space.

The U.S. made three unsuccessful attempts before a fly-by of
37,000 miles was achieved. Luna 2 hit the moon, Luna 3 circled
the moon and took pictures of the far side and the Russians
immediately postponed all lunar research and refused to
release any information they had collected.

America, alone in the race for the moon, launched a series of
embarrassing probes designed to hard land with seismic
detectors. Ranger 3 missed completely and went into solar
orbit. Ranger 4 hit the moon but sent no useful information.
Ranger 5 missed by a full 450 miles, prompting the engineers
to sit down and recalculate their equations. Somewhere along
the line, they had made some serious mathematical errors!

Two years later Ranger 6 was launched but its electrical
system burned out. Subsequent flights had a bit more success
and the Russians were encouraged to reactivate their lunar
research. But Luna 5 crashed at full speed onto the surface.
Luna 6 missed. Luna 7 crashed when its retrograde rockets
fired too soon. Luna 8 crashed. Then Luna 9 became the first
probe to successfully soft land on the lunar surface.

From that time both Soviet and American probes were largely
successful, but only because they had been able to recalculate
the gravitational neutral point between Earth and the moon.

The most amazing disclosure to emerge from the many failures
was that NASA was able to accurately find the neutral gravity
point between the two bodies. This new calculation was never
officially revealed or explained, leading many to suggest that
NASA is covering up important data concerning the origin and
composition of the moon.

The neutral point, as published in Time magazine, July 25,
1969 and same year in "History of Rocketry & Space Travel,"
was 43,495 miles from the center of the moon. This means that
the gravitational attraction of the moon is not one-sixth or
16.7% of the Earth's, but is actually 64% or greater than
one-half of the Earth's gravity!

Because of their relative sizes, if the neutral point is
really 52,000 miles, rather than 43,495, the moon's
gravitational attraction would be identical to Earth's. A 170
pound man on Earth would weigh 170 pounds on the moon.

Inconsistent and contradictory information concerning the
recalculated neutral point leads some investigators to believe
NASA is conducting an official cover-up. Using NASA's own
figures, researchers have determined that the flight times for
the Apollo missions were shorter than they should have been,
indicating that the spacecraft began to accelerate sooner than
they would have if the moon's gravity were only one-sixth that
of Earth's. The figures, in fact, validate the claim that the
moon's gravity is nearly the same as Earth's!

Assuming the moon's gravity is one-sixth that of Earth's, the
payloads for the Lunar Module are correct, however, if the
moon's gravity is nearly the same as that of Earth, we are led
to conclude one of two things: (1) America did not send men to
the moon as claimed, or (2) America sent men to the moon but
used a landing technology other than rockets to place the
lunar module on the surface and return.

Top secret military research being conducted in lifting
technology may have provided the means to launch, land and
recover the LM. Rockets aboard the vehicle clearly could not
have worked in the high gravity now known to exist on the
moon. Were super-secret anti-gravity devices used aboard the
vehicle? Let's take a look.

In a gravity one-sixth that of Earth's, a 180 pound man would
weigh only 30 pounds. That means he could easily leap 15 feet
straight up on the moon as opposed to about 18 inches on
Earth. None of the astronauts who walked on the moon could do
that. They were unable, in fact, to leap more than about 18

When Apollo 12 astronaut Conrad dropped the final three feet
from the LM ladder to the lunar surface, he remarked that the
jump may have been a short one for Neil, but it was a long one
for him. Later he was warned not to lean too far forward when
gathering soil samples because he might fall and be unable to
stand again!

But jumping from a three-foot ladder in one-sixth gravity
would be the same as stepping off a six-inch curb on Earth.
Even with the weight of the spacesuit, Conrad should not have
even noticed it. If Conrad had fallen while gathering
samples, we should assume he could have pushed himself upright
by arm strength alone in one-sixth gravity.

Charles Duke fell several times during the Apollo 16 lunar
landings and was unable to catch himself, even though he
should have fallen three to four times slower than on Earth.

Apollo 14 astronauts were unable to climb a cone crater as
planned. During the mission, astronaut Alan Shepard went down
on one knee to recover a sample and required the aid of
Astronaut Mitchell to stand again. Their heart rates increased
to 120 beats per minute as they moved up the slight grade
toward the cone. After nearly four hours, they were still
approximately one-half hour from reaching their goal and
Shepard claimed they could not reach the crater summit in that
amount of time so they abandoned the task.

But the crater, little more than a hill, was only 1.8 miles
from the LM. If they were two-thirds of the way to the top,
they should have been able to cover the final half-mile in
only six minutes, assuming they were moving at five miles per
hour in one-sixth gravity.

During Apollo 17, astronauts Cernan and Schmitt began their
first tasks by loading the Lunar Rover. Cernan, apparently
excited, was told that his metabolic rate was climbing at an
alarming rate. He was using too much oxygen. Cernan told his
communicator that he thought it was due to being accustomed to
"zero gravity."

Astronaut Parker, the communicator, then stated that he
thought Cernan was working in one-sixth gravity, not "zero
gravity." Cernan replied, "Yes. You know where we are...
whatever," suggesting that he did not think it wise to discuss
the gravity situation.

While a number of people have claimed America never did send
men to the moon, others believe we did but that we defeated
the moon's high gravity with some new lifting technology such
as anti-gravity devices rather than with rockets.

The most compelling visual evidence for such claims is the
footage of the lunar ascent module leaving the surface of the
moon. Its ascent is completely inconsistent with that of a
rocket-launched vehicle and there is no rocket exhaust.

Recently, a Japanese astronomer photographed an enormous
disc-shaped vehicle crossing the surface of the moon at
extremely high speed. It was later agreed by many scientists
to be space station at least one kilometer in diameter.
Numerous light flashes have been seen and recorded on the
surface of the moon. Water vapor clouds have been detected
rising from the floors of craters. Water and high gravity
suggests an atmosphere capable, possibly, of sustaining human

When NASA recently made a commitment to return to the lunar
surface to stay, did they mean they were already there and
that humans were living at least fairly comfortably while they
terraform it for their employers?

Are some of the large craft spotted in the skies of Earth
shuttle craft and supply ships embarking for or returning from
lunar excursions or even Martian excursions?

Have Earth scientists really perfected free energy,
anti-gravity engines and anti-mass fields? Have they finally
figured out how to bend and reconstruct time and space so they
can jump back and forth from one dimension to another as
easily as driving down to the local grocery store?

There is so much circumstantial evidence for it that it is
nearly impossible to ignore, yet, not one shred of real
physical evidence has been produced to prove any of it.
