The Moon: An Artificial Base?

moon-walkApparently the moon is a terraformed, engineered piece of hardware, with a 3 mile thick outer layer of dust and rock, which has, below this layer, a thick solid shell of around 20 miles made of highly resistant materials such as titanium , uranium 236, mica, neptumium 237. Not what you would expect to find “inside” the Moon.

Despite six visits announced by US astronauts between 1969 and 1972, the Moon remains an enigma for scientists in many respects. The solutions to these riddles may indicate an alien aspect of our familiar Moon. Called “the Rosetta Stone of the planets” by Dr. Robert Jastrow, the first president of NASA’s Commission of Lunar Exploration, scientists hoped to understand the composition and formation of the moon and solve some of the mysteries of how our planet and solar system came into existence. However, six lunar landings later, science writer Earl Ubell said: “… the Rosetta Moon Stone remains a mystery.

The Moon is more complicated than anyone expected, is not just some kind of frozen billiard ball in space and time, as many scientists had believed. The Moon is far older than imagined, some have ventured out to say that it might well be older than planet Earth. The Moon has at least three distinct layers of rock. Contrary to the idea that heavier objects sink, heavier rocks are found on the surface. And there is a gap defined in the distribution of minerals.

The moon is very dry and it does not seem that it had, at some point, substantial amounts of water. None of lunar rocks, regardless of where they were found contained traces of water or even water molecules bound to minerals. apollo 16 astronauts found rocks containing pieces of rusty iron Since oxidation requires oxygen and free hydrogen, this rust indicates that water should be somewhere on the moon.

Strangely, instruments left by the Apollo missions sent a signal to Earth on March 7, 1971, indicating that “wind” containing traces of “water” had swept across the lunar surface. Since the water on the surface without air is vaporized, it behaves like wind on Earth, the question was where this water originated.

Ubell asked an interesting question;

If the Earth and the moon were created at the same time, close to one another, how come one body, the Earth has great amounts of Iron, while the other body, the moon, has very little of it. Astrophysicists are unable to explain exactly how the moon became a satellite of Earth.

Magnetized moon rocks were found, not strong enough to pick up a clip but they were nevertheless magnetic in nature. But, there is no magnetic field on the moon, so where did the magnetism come from?

Evidence suggests that the moon may be hollow. Moon rocks studies indicate that the interior of the moon differs from the mantle of the Earth in ways that suggests the presence of a very small core, even though some suggest the Moon might not have a core at all. 1962, NASA scientist Dr. Gordon MacDonald stated, “If the astronomical data are reduced, it is found that the data require that the interior of the moon be less dense than the outer parts. Indeed, it would seem that the moon is more like a hollow than a homogeneous sphere.”

The significance was stated by astronomer Carl Sagan way back in his 1966 work Intelligent Life in the Universe, “A natural satellite cannot be a hollow object.”

The most incredible evidence that suggests the moon could be hollow came on November 20, 1969, when the Apollo 12 crew, after returning to their command ship, sent the lunar module ascent stage crashing back onto the moon creating an artificial moonquake.

The LM crashed into the surface about 40 miles from the Apollo 12 landing site where ultra-sensitive seismic equipment recorded something both unexpected and astounding – the moon reverberated like a bell for more than an hour. The vibration wave took almost eight minutes to reach a peak, then decreased in intensity, something no one had expected to occur.

Experts were even more surprised about the moon when lunar rocks were found with traces of bronze, mica, amphibole and almost pure titanium. According to the Argonne National Laboratory, uranium 236 and neptunium 237-elements that were not previously found in nature-were discovered in moon rocks. Scientists were baffled when they discovered the presence of rustproof iron particles in a soil sample from the Sea of Crises.

According to a more recent theory, the Moon was created from the leftover space debris from the creation of the Earth. This concept proved unsustainable in the light of the current theory of gravity, indicating that a large object collects all loose material, leaving none for the formation of another large body. It is generally accepted that the moon originated elsewhere and entered the gravitational field of the Earth at some point in the distant past.

None of the suggested theories are particularly compelling because of the lack of evidence that neither Earth nor the Moon appear to have been physically altered by a close encounter that occurred in the distant past. No debris in space indicate a collision in the past yet it seems that the Earth and Moon were developed during the same period.

As for the theories suggested that Earth “naturally captured” the Moon, Isaac Asimov states: “The Moon is too big to have been captured by the Earth. The chances of such a capture, after which the moon adopted a nearly circular orbit around the Earth are too small to make such an eventuality credible.”

Asimov was right to consider the orbit of the Moon – not only is it almost a perfect circle, but it also is stationary, one side is always faced towards Earth with only the slightest variation. For all we know, it is the only natural satellite with such an orbit.

This circular orbit is one of the most strangest things when it comes to the moon considering that the center of mass of the Moon is over a mile closer to Earth than its geometric center. This fact alone should produce an unstable, wobbly orbit, as well as an off-center mass. Interestingly, almost all other satellites in our solar system orbit in the Ecuador plane of its planet.

The Moon’s orbit is strangely closer to the Earth’s orbit around the sun, inclined to the ecliptic of the Earth for more than five degrees.

If it is just a coincidence that the moon has precise and stationary orbit around our planet, is it also a coincidence that the Moon is at the right distance from Earth to completely cover the sun during an eclipse?

Asimov explains: “There is no astronomical reason why the moon and the sun should fit so well. It’s the purest of coincidences, and only the Earth among all the planets is blessed in this way.”

Earth-Moon-Incline

It seems impossible that a rarity of this type would naturally fall into a circular orbit so precisely. It is a fascinating enigma well articulated by science writer William Roy Shelton, who wrote: “It is important to remember that something had to put the moon in or near its current circular pattern around the Earth. Smiley put, it is very unlikely that any object just stumbles on the right combination of factors needed to help an object stay in orbit. ‘Something “had to put the moon on its altitude, on its course and speed. The question is: what was that “something”?

In July 1970, two Russian scientists Mijail Vasin and Alexander Shcherbakov, published an article in the Soviet magazine Sputnik entitled “Is the moon a creation of extraterrestrial intelligence?” They advanced the theory that the moon is not a completely natural object, but a planetoid that was excavated eons ago in the depths of space by intelligent beings with a technology superior to ours.
