10. Moon Echoes:
On the 20th November 1969, the crew of Apollo 12 jettisoned the lunar module ascent stage causing it to crash onto the moon some 40 miles from the
Apollo 12 landing site. This created an artificial moonquake with startling characteristics. The moon reverberated like a bell for more than an hour.
This phenomenon was intentionally repeated with Apollo 13, when they allowed the third stage to impact the moon. The results were even more startling.
Seismic instruments recorded that the reverberations lasted for three hours and twenty minutes and travelled to a depth of twenty-five miles. This
lead to the conclusion that the moon has an unusually light, or even no core.
11. Unusual Metals:
The moon’s crust is much harder than presumed. The astronauts encountered extreme difficulty when they tried to drill into the maria. The maria is
composed primarily ilmenite, which is a mineral containing large amounts of titanium, the same metal used to fabricate the hulls of deep-diving
submarines and the skin of the SR-71 "Blackbird". What is even more puzzling, was the discovery of Uranium 236 and Neptunium 237 in lunar rocks
(elements not found in nature on Earth). And a further surprise was finding rustproof iron particles. What?
12. Moon’s Origin:
Before the moon rocks conclusively disproved all the common theories about the moon’s origins, these were some of the theories.
The moon was believed to have originated when a chunk of Earth broke off eons ago (who knows from where, if the materials are not the same?).
Another theory was that the moon was created from leftover "space dust" remaining after the Earth was created. Analysis of the composition of moon
rocks disproved this theory also.
Another popular theory is that the moon was somehow "captured" by the Earth’s gravitational attraction. But no scientific evidence exists to
support this theory. Isaac Asimov stated, "It’s too big to have been captured by the Earth. The chances of such a capture having been effected
and the moon then having taken up a nearly circular orbit around our Earth, are too small to make such an eventuality credible."
13. Weird Orbit:
Our moon does not rotate on its axis. We only ever see one side of the moon. There is what is known as the "dark side of the moon" that we have
never seen from Earth. It is the only moon in the solar system that has a stationary, near-perfect circular orbit. Stranger still, the moon’s centre
of mass is about 6000 feet closer to the Earth than its geometric centre (which should cause wobbling), but the moon’s bulge is on the far side of
the moon, away from the Earth. "Something or someone" had to put the moon in orbit with its precise altitude, course, and speed.
14. Moon Diameter:
How does one explain the "coincidence" that the moon is just the right distance, coupled with just the right diameter, to completely cover the sun
during an eclipse? Again, Isaac Asimov responds, "There is no astronomical reason why the moon and the sun should fit so well. It is the sheerest
of coincidences, and only the Earth among all the planets is blessed in this fashion."
15. Spaceship Moon Theory:
As outrageous as it may sound, it is quite possible that the moon is a giant, intelligently designed spaceship, with a specific purpose. The facts
lead us convincingly to such an insane conclusion. The only theory that is supported by all of the data, is that the moon is a gigantic
extraterrestrial craft, brought here eons ago by intelligent beings, and there is no data that seems to contradict this theory.
