quote: "when they land on the moon, the first comments they made of was "someone has been here before us", they reported structures, factorylike domes, roads, traces of machinere, the lunar rover actualy found a lunar highway across the surface"

secrets of the moon held from public knowing?

Told in this little video here

interesting facts! are they true?

Actually, they aren't true, so they aren't facts.

Nothing in the video makes any sense if you apply some common sense to it. I'd love to see some supporting evidence for Mr. Irnes' statement that: "NASA scrubs all the radio transmissions between the astronauts and Huston." But you won't ever see any supporting evidence, since by definition any "scrubbed" transmissions would no longer exist. How convenient.

Take a look at any of the pictures of the moon, either the ones taken by Apollo astronauts, unmanned landers/orbiters belonging to both the United States and the Soviet Union, the ESA's recent Smart-1 probe, etc. Show me some evidence - and ACTUAL evidence, not "suspicious shadows along the crater wall" or some such nonsense - of these supposed "factory domes" or anything else. And don't try to apply the argument that there is some sort of massive worldwide conspiracy to hide evidence of ET's to keep us off the moon. If there really were alien factories, etc. on the moon ever nation on Earth would be scrabbling to get up there to get their hands on advanced technology and the like.

Either NASA somehow "sanatizes" all the radio traffic between orbiting spacecraft (or, in the case of Apollo, spacecraft in transfer to a lunar orbit), or they don't. You can't have it both ways, so which is it?

Oh, I don't doubt that the recordings between Gemini 7 and Huston that they play in the video are genuine. As far as the astronauts calling out information to Huston about "a bogey at 10 o'clock high", that "bogey" could be anything, including a piece of space junk, a Soviet satellite, etc. Since we had been sending satellites into orbit for eight years at that point (Sputnik in 1957 to Gemini 7 in 1965), there are any number of objects that could account for that "bogey".

Also, regarding the claim that NASA began to refer to UFO's by the code-name of Santa Claus, I am only aware of one instance wherein astronauts used the phrase "Santa Claus" in conversations with Huston, and that was during the Apollo 8 mission, which was coming out of lunar radio black out on Christmas Day, 1968. It was a play on the phrase "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus", which is a famous line from a movie of the same name.

all I have to say on this is, they probably don't show all the pictures they have taken.

Something I don't know, did they land on the lighted side, or the dark side of the moon?

There is no "lighted side", nor "dark side" of the moon. Only the near side and the far side. The lighted side would mean that the sun is always up on the sky and that's not true. As for the "dark side", that's only a figure of speach since the far side is not visible from earth. And because it's not visible from earth, any communication with the far side without a communication relay would be imposible. All the moon missions took place on the near side of the moon.

During Apollo astronauts always landed on the Near Side of the moon - that is, the light side. This was done so that astronauts on the surface would always have a line of sight towards the Earth, and thus always be "facing" a communication relay satellite or part of NASA's Deep Space Network of radio telescopes. As the pilot in the Command Module orbited the moon he would go into radio blackout for part of every orbit, as he passed behind the moon, but constant contact could be maintained with the surface.

If memory serves, the decision to cut the program at Apollo 17 was made early enough that no final decision had been made regarding landing sites for Apollos 18-20. There was strong sentiment from some corners of the scientific community to land a mission on the far side, and Harrison Schmitt, the only Geologist to land on the moon, lobbied NASA to choose a Far Side landing site for Apollo 17, the mission Schmitt flew on. This would have required that a communication satellite be placed at the Earth-Moon L2 Point and ultimately was never done, partially because of the expense and partially because NASA didn't want to take any unnecessary chances with the last mission of the program.

Hopefully NASA's new Orion program will land a mission on the Far Side sometime in the 2020's. If we're going back to the moon to stay we'll need a network of GPS (Lunar Positioning System? Selene Positioning System?) and communication satellites in orbit, anyway.

you're so right apass, thx for correcting.
