Mysteries of the Moon

September 10, 2002: Skeptic sees stars when astronaut lands punch

California: Police are investigating allegations former Apollo 11 astronaut Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin made a skeptic see stars by punching him when confronted with charges that his historic 1969 moonwalk was a hoax, police said today.

The 72-year-old Aldrin, who was one of the first two astronauts to walk on the lunar landscape when the United States landed man on the moon on July 20, 1969, is accused of punching independent filmmaker Bart Sibrel in the face outside a Beverly Hills hotel yesterday.

Sibril, 37, - who believes the moon landings were faked to fool the Soviets into believing the United States had achieved the ultimate space goal - was used by a Japanese television team to surprise Aldrin with an "ambush", following an interview in the hotel.

"I walked up to him on the sidewalk and put a bible up to him and asked him to swear on the bible that he actually walked on the moon," Sibril, who has confronted Aldrin on two other occasions, told AFP.

"He refused to do it so I told him he was a thief to take money for giving and interview on something he didn't do. That's when he hit me and ran off across the road."

Beverly Hills police spokesman Lieutenant Gary Gilmont said the department was investigating the alleged assault but that no arrests had been made or charges brought.

Aldrin's representatives were not immediately available for comment.

Sibril has made a film called "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Moon," in which he claims that the Apollo 11 and subsequent astronauts had faked their moon walk and their orbit around it using trick photography.

He claimed that the Apollo 11 mission never got more than halfway to the moon during the mission when astronaut Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon uttering the words: "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

Sibril said he learned of the alleged government conspiracy to fake the moon landing through a former space agency employee and after he discovered a National Aeronautical and Space Agency tape in which the alleged trick photography was apparent.

"I just can't believe that as a race of people we would have done such a wicked thing as to pretend that we had done something as big as this without ever having done it," said the film maker, who had confronted Aldrin twice previously on the issue.

The Age - Melbourne
September 11, 2002

Some very weird facts about our nearest neighbour.

Despite six visits to the Moon by Astronauts between 1969 and 1972, the moon remains a riddle to scientists in many regards. The landings have not bought Lunar Scientists any closer to being able to answer the most basic questions about the moon - such as how the moon was created. What we have learnt since the Apollo missions has simply led to more questions: Is the moon hollow?, were we warned off?, where did the moon come from?, is the moon a space ship?, is the lunar eclipse an impossible coincidence?, what is the origin of moon rocks?, are huge disk shaped objects located beneath the moons lava seas?, has there been volcanic activity on the moon?what are the structures and lights that have been seen on the moon?

During Surveyor V11's landing on the moon on January 7, 1968, the spacecrafts camera system picked up two narrow laser beams that had been aimed towards it from two observatories in the U.S. The blue - green laser beams each contained only about 1 watt of power, but appeared on camera somewhat brighter than the brightest star, Sirius.

Where humans warned off?
Maurice Chatelain
, former NASA engineer in charge of television communication, has written a book containing far reaching implications called "Our Ancestors Came From Space".
He claims that NASA wanted to know if the moon was, in fact, hollow or artificial and that the hidden agenda behind the Apollo 13 mission was to detonate a nuclear bomb on the moon to determine its geographic infrastructure. According to Chatelain a UFO followed Apollo 13 to the moon and sabotaged it by literally causing the now famous malfunction before the astronauts could reach their destination. Could this have been an act of self defense by inhabitants of the moon? According to Daniel Ross, author of "UFO's and the Complete Evidence from Space", there are extraterrestrials living peacefully on the moon and want us off!

Astronauts
One account of how astronauts were muzzled came from ex NASA space program member Otto Binder, who accused his former employer of censoring transmissions from Apollo 11 and other missions by switching to frequencies unknown to the public
. He claimed that unnamed ham radio enthusiasts monitored the Apollo 11 transmissions after the astronauts landed in the Sea of Tranquility and overheard one of them exclaim, "These babies are huge, sir....enormous...Oh, God, you wouldn't believe it! I'm telling you there are other spacecraft out there.....lined up on the far side of the craters edge...they're on the moon watching us..." CLICK HERE for more Astronaut Information!

Science writer Earl Ubel once wrote, "The Lunar Rosetta Stone remains a mystery. The moon is more complicated than anyone expected; it is not some kind of billiard ball frozen in space and time, as many scientists had believed. Few of the fundamental questions have been answered, but the Apollo rocks and recordings have spawned a score of mysteries, a few truly breath stopping."

In his book Alien Agenda, Jim Marrs reviews several theories that have been put forward.

The Spaceship Moon Theory
In July 1970, two Russian scientists offered a bizarre theory of the origins of the moon. Michael Vasin and Alexander Scherbakov published an article in the Soviet journal Sputnik entitled "Is the moon a creation of alien intelligence?"

The Soviet scientists put forward the belief that the moon is not a completely natural world but a planetoid, hollowed out eons ago in the far reaches of space. Huge machines were used to melt rock and form large cavities within the moon, spewing the molten refuse onto the surface. Protected by a hull-like inner shell plus a reconstructed outer shell of metallic rocky junk, this gigantic craft was steered through the cosmos and finally parked in orbit around our earth.

The theory was re-vitalized in 1975 with the publication of Our Mysterious Spaceship Moon by Don Wilson. He stated that "Too many pieces of evidence seem to fit to reject the theory without investigation."

There is even tantalizing evidence that in the dim recesses of human memory there have been recollections of a time before the arrival of the moon. Aristotle told of a people who lived in Arcadia, a mountainous region in Central Greece, long before the coming of the Greeks. The Greek term Proscelene means before the moon. In Tibetan texts there are stories of a people on a lost continent called Gondwana, said to be civilized before the moon shone in the night sky. Bolivian symbols have been interpreted by Dr. P. Allen as records that a satellite came into orbit around the Earth about 11,500 to 13,000 years ago.

Where did the moon come from?
As there is very little similarity between the moon and earth, the old theory that the moon broke off our planet and ended up in its orbit can be discounted. It is well accepted that the moon originated in other parts of the universe before moving into the earths orbit. Author and science expert, Isaac Asimov believed that the moon was too large to have been captured by our orbit. The orbit of the moon itself is also enigmatic. It is a perfect circle and stationary, with only one side being exposed to earth. As far as we know, the moon is the only natural satellite with such an orbit.

Author and expert on the ancient Sumerian civilization, Zecharia Sitchen also had an interest in the moon. Our mysterious satellite has caused much argument among scientists with respect to its age and origin (Go to our moon mysteries page for more information). Sitchen wrote in  his book Genesis Revisited (1990), some answers are provided if we go back to the Sumerian cosmology. The assertion here is that the moon originated not as a satellite of Earth but the much larger planet, Tiamat, which is placed beyond Mars. The Sumerian cosmology describes an unstable solar system caused by emerging gravitational forces disturbing planetary balance and causing moons to grow disproportionately. According to the Sumerians, one of the eleven moons of Tiamat grew to an unusual size. and proved to be increasingly disruptive to the other planets. It was named 'Kingu'. In an ensuing celestial battle, Tiamat was split in two; one half was shattered; the other half, accompanied by Kingu, was thrust into a new orbit to become the Earth and its moon.

The mystery of the lunar eclipse?
Why is it that the moon is just the right distance from the earth to completely cover the sun during an eclipse? While the diameter of the moon is a mere 2,160 miles against the sun's gigantic 864,000 miles, it is never the less in just the proper position to block out the suns corona when it moves between the sun and earth. Isaac Asimov explains, "there is no reason why the moon and the sun should fit so well. It is the sheerest of coincidences, and only the Earth is among all the planets blessed in this fashion.

The moon older than the earth and sun?
It is believed that the moon could possibly be older than the earth and sun. Scientists have dated some moon rocks as billions of years old. Some have been dated back as far as 4.5 billion years.

Scientists nowadays accept the moon to be 4.6 billion years old.

Harvard's respected astronomy journal, Sky and Telescope, reported that at a lunar conference in 1973 dated a lunar rock as 5.3 billion years old which would make it almost a billion years older than our planet.

Titanium and rust proof rocks!
Scientists found that the crushed up rocks on the moon is of another world. Analysis has shown that the moon rocks are of a completely different composition to the soil around them.

Some of the rocks gathered by a Soviet mission in 1970 were resistant to rusting. This is not a feature of any metal known to man and years ahead of our technology.

The moon has three distinct layers of rocks. Contrary to the idea heavier rocks sink, the heavier rocks are found on the surface. Stated Don Wilson, "The abundance of titanium and other refractory elements in the surface areas is so pronounced that several geo-chemists proposed that refractory compounds were bought to the moon's surface in great quantity in some unknown way. That this was done cannot be questioned. These materials which are usually concentrated towards the interior of a world are now on the outside."

Earl Ubel, who was a former science director for CBS Television added to the mystery by stating that, "The first layer (20 miles deep), consists of lava-like material similar to lava flows on Earth. The second, extending down to 50 miles, is made up of somewhat denser rock. The third, continuing to a depth of at least 80 miles and probably below, appears to be of a heavier metal, similar to the Earth's mantle."

Many of the rock samples discovered on the moon have also been found to be magnetized. It has been suggested that this is due to their exposure to the magnetism present on earth. Others have rebutted this claim by arguing that if such an influence was placed on the moon, the earths magnetism would have caused the destruction of the moon and its orbit many millions of years ago.

Huge disk shaped objects located beneath the moons lava seas!
The moon has large seas of smooth molten rock. Known as 'maria', four fifths of these are on the Earth-side hemisphere. In the centre of these maria, huge disk-shaped objects have been detected lying 20 to 40 miles below the surface. The objects are referred to as 'mascons' and they are said to be located like a bulls-eye at the centre of the marias.

The mascons were first discovered because their density distorted the orbits of objects flying over or near them. Some scientists have theorised that the mascons are heavy iron ore meteorites that plunged into the moon when it was in a soft and formable state.

Volcanic activity on the moon?
In 1963 astronomers at the Lowell Observatory saw a reddish glow on the crests of the ridges in the Aristarchus region. This was after a similar glow and gaseous explosions were photographed by Russian astronomer Nikolay A. Kozyrev in 1958. Other observatories also reported red glow. Although the moon is deemed to be volcanically dead it seems that there is certainly something creaking in its interior. Seismographic equipment left at six separate sites on the moon by the Apollo missions picked up a great deal of activity until it ceased operating in 1977.

Operation Moonblink
In the early nineteenth century, Sir John Herschel in England saw unidentified lights on the moon during an eclipse and noted thar some of the lights appeared to be moving above the moon. Other astronomers of the period also reported seeing a geometrical pattern of lights that resembled city streets. In the mid 1960's NASA established the operation to investigate many strange flashes of light over the moon. The space association had received reports of many extraordinary lunar events.

In 1959 a dark object had been observed hovering over the moon for two hours. On July 29, John O'Neill observed a nineteen kilometre long bridge strabbling the crater Mare Crisium. One month later famous British astronomer Dr H Wilkins verified the sighting.

In the twelve months to September 1966, Operation Moonblink had detected 28 unusual lunar events.

In 1968 an obelisk shaped object was discovered. This became known as the 'Shard'. The object rose nearly two and a half kilometres above the Urkert area of the moon's surface, which rises more than eight kilometres from the Sinus Medii region. No known natural process can explain the structure.

Is the moon hollow?
There are many indications that the moon is hollow. The moon's mean density- about 3.34 grams per cubic centimetre is significantly less than the 5.5 gram density of the earth's mantle. This density indicates that the moon may not have a core.

The most starling evidence came on November 20 1969, when the Apollo 12 crew, after returning to their command ship, sent the lunar module ascent stage crashing down back on to the moon, creating an artificial earthquake. The crash site was 40 miles from where the astronauts had left their seismic devices. The ultra sensitive equipment recorded the moon ringing like a bell for more almost forty minutes. The vibration took almost eight minutes to reach a peak and then diminished in intensity.

This ringing was repeated when the Apollo 13's third stage fell to the lunar surface, striking with the equivalent of eleven tons of TNT. According to NASA, this time the moon reacted like a gong. Although seismic equipment was 108 miles from the crash site, recordings showed reverberations lasted for three hours and twenty minutes and traveled to a depth of twenty-two to twenty-five miles. Subsequent studies of man-made crashes yielded similar results. After one impact the moon reverberated for four hours.

On March 13, 1972, a large meteorite struck the moon with the equivalent off 200 ton of TNT. After sending shockwaves deep into the interior of the moon, scientists were baffled to find that none returned, concerning there is something unusual about the moon's core. It seems the moon has a tough outer shell but a light, or non-existent interior.

New UK TV series 'Lunartics' set on a hollow moon!

Thanks to Danny Flynn from the UK. After we here at UFO TODAY, Melbourne, initially posted our contact page, Danny was the first to write in. And it was a great first letter to get.

Danny is an established Illustrator of SF & Fantasy and is currently making a children's CG animated TV series, LUNARTICS!

 

Danny wrote; "I had not realised there was so much mystery surrounding the Moon, nor of a school of thought believing the Moon may be hollow. This is great to hear, as the premise behind the show is that the Moon is in fact hollow!"

LUNARTICS will revolve around the adventures and situations that ensue when you throw together an unlikely collection of oddball alien creatures.

Creatures that have set up home almost right under our noses…

The LUNARTICS may well look like they live on some far distant planet light years from Earth... but they don't! They’re practically right here on our doorstep, and have been for some time. It’s just that us stupid people of Earth haven’t really noticed... yet.

Years ago, The LUNARTICS made an astounding chance discovery whilst exploring our Solar System. The Earth’s moon was in fact hollow ! What a perfect haven it would make… an ideal secret world both for themselves, and all their wacky friends scattered throughout the universe.

LUNARTICS, The TV series Every child - and parent - in every country knows the moon... but who would have ever believed that it teemed with life ?

As we know back in the late 1960’s, many Apollo missions were sent to explore the Moon. Some of the Earth’s cleverest men went there, yet only floundered around in silly spacesuits picking up rocks, and as we saw, often comically falling over in a flurry of moon-dust.

Have you ever wondered why the visits to the Moon suddenly stopped? Just Imagine if the Astronauts had told us what they really saw there on the moon… The Moon may well look like a desolate and lifeless place, but this is exactly what we’re meant to think. Underneath the moon’s pockmarked face, it ’s a very different story… just ask Sir Arthur C Clarke or Sir Patrick Moore, who have probably known the truth all along. (They're even helping with the series).

As the series unfolds, secrets of the moon’s fascinating interior world will be revealed. We will follow the lives of an eccentric Professor Nutrubble Smith and his pet Quirgle, as well as Blorrix, Snizwib and the drop dead gorgeous Miss Pinkle meeting many more even quirkier creatures along the way… including the despicable Vladock the Nasty and his twisted henchman, the slime- ball Murgletroyd

A LITTLE ABOUT THE WORLD WITHIN THE MOON: There are several entrances to the interior of the moon. The doorways are ingeniously disguised as small craters on the surface, which flip open like giant waste paper bin lids when activated. Once through the long winding tunnels, you initially fly through a layer of hazy cloud. Soon enough though, you will see below the vast expanse of the sparkling turquoise Lunar Sea… If you're lucky, you may even see the Cross Porpoises - a school of very pissed off dolphins plucked from Earth.

Giant spiral shells are randomly dotted along the beaches of the many small lush islands, gracefully connected by a series of intricate bridges. It would be difficult not be in awe of the sheer beauty of this secret and exotic paradise, as well as marvel at some of the bizarre lifeforms. Waterfalls and streams cascade and meander their way down the wooded hillsides, pleasing to the eye … but don’t be fooled. This feeling of calm is unlikely to last for long. The moon’s crazy interior environment is full of weird and wonderful surprises. You just never know what or whom you may meet around each new corner… Danny Flynn. www.dannyflynn.com
