Is that a photo of the Moon?? Or of Mars?

I'll have to search through your voluminous threads...

Will we finaly see the moon base ??? Well, no we wont , because its probably the impact point for the second of the experiments launched on thursday !

dark side? Ummmm oh heck never mind... but what is this about the universe nearing alignment? This one is new

My money is on Robert Bigelow. He already has two Genesis modules up there for his inflatable hotel in space, he has contracted with Russia and a US defense contractor to use a spaceport in Russia, where they launched his modules from.

He has no love for NASA because they said NO to launching his modules. His term for NASA - No Access to Space for Americans

You can track his two Genesis station modules here. Its a live feed and updates every 60 seconds and also shows Hubble and ISS

Bigelow Aerospace and ATK A major defence contractor that also built Phoenix Mars lander have contracted with the ISC Kosmotras Space and Missile Complex, Russian Federation, Province of Orenburg, Yasny which used to be a Russian ICBM site

Information cokkected here

Now how sad is it that an American entrepreneur has to go to Russia to have his projects launched into space? Fortunately for us Robert has the means and the will to make it happen


OH BTW Bigelow was also involved with the MISTY stealth satellite launched from a secret DoD shuttle Mission STS36

So yeah... he is my best bet... and to top it off, he is just around the corner for me... literally

YEAH where are those hi res photos! not looking good and from our little U2U zorgon i can now see a much clearer picture!

heck i'm even re thinking my whole UFO philosophy! its a very deep deep rabbit hole innit. no wonder ya seem to be concentrating your search in a more reliable direction regarding the UFO field great thread as usual. i cannot contribute much more only learn which is good.stealthy~

When they slam the stuff into the moon.
It will be your answer to disclosure.
If Aliens don't come and retaliate then obviously no one is on the moon.
Which there never was anyway.
This is how they mind mess you.

All these crashes into the moon.
They must have monkeys instead of flight computers.
They are supposed to go around the moon.
Go around the moon. Let all say it, go around the moon.
What did the failure reports say.

The mass of the moon might be an unknown here.
How many orbits are possible, there must be an infinite amount
of proper trajectories.

Not sure we orbited Mars, we might have just crashed in.
This is way short of the easy exploration of the Buck Rogers era.

Now, that is cool beans, z!!

Even better:

Makes Branson...pardon, "Sir" Richard...look like a bit of a piker, don't it?

That's really good info! And, they're also right around my corner, too.

Colonizing The Moon

Bush says "Robotic Missions"

How to extract water from Lunar regolith



100 BILLION DOLLARS???


And they say they will save money using the old Apollo technology...

Yet we have already seen that

NASA Forgot How To Go To The Moon!!!

UPDATE



En Route to Moon!

June 19, 2009 - LRO and LCROSS are bound for the moon after a flawless liftoff from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida aboard an Atlas V rocket. LRO successfully separated from LCROSS and the Centaur upper stage.

Liftoff occurred on June 18 at 5:32 p.m. EDT. Mission managers used the last launch opportunity due to storms surrounding the launch site. LRO will reach the moon on Tuesday at 5:43 a.m.

LRO and LCROSS will use vastly different methods to study the lunar environment. LRO will go into orbit around the moon, turning its suite of instruments towards the moon for thorough studies. The spacecraft also will be looking for potential landing sites for astronauts.

LCROSS, on the other hand, will guide an empty upper stage on a collision course with a permanently shaded crater in an effort to kick up evidence of water at the moon's poles. LCROSS itself will also impact the lunar surface during its course of study.

The crashes have been not only on purpose but part of the missions since the beginning, they were not accidental or the result of an error.

True even the Lunar Orbiter craft were slammed into the moon on purpose, so they wouldn't clutter up Lunar orbit


Heck all those anomalies we keep finding... maybe only NASA, ESA, Russian, Chinese, Japanese and who knows who else space junque It would take some time to find out where all that stuff splattered all over the once pristine landscape

Scientists? Pffttt Cosmic Litterbugs I say

Just so we don't drag the BOMBING mission into this thread


No explosives mentioned


Jonas Dino
Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif.

PRESS RELEASE: 09-143


The 1,290-pound LCROSS and 5,216-pound Centaur upper stage will
perform a swing-by maneuver of the moon around 6 a.m. on June 23 to
calibrate the satellite's science instruments and enter a long,
looping polar orbit around Earth and the moon. Each orbit will be
roughly perpendicular to the moon's orbit around Earth and take about
37 days to complete. Before impact, the spacecraft and Centaur will
make approximately three orbits.

On the final approach, about 54,000 miles above the surface, LCROSS
and the Centaur will separate. LCROSS will spin 180 degrees to turn
its science payload toward the moon and fire thrusters to slow down.
The spacecraft will observe the flash from the Centaur's impact and
fly through the debris plume. Data will be collected and streamed to
LCROSS mission operations for analysis. Four minutes later, LCROSS
also will impact, creating a second debris plume.



TWO crashes not one

I think it's a million to one chance there are any sort of bases or anything similar on the moon.

Nevertheless I find it a very interesting subject & I keep looking into it because there are those very few images that make me scratch my head a little.

On that million to one chance there is anything there, as time passes the software to edit out such things will probably get better & better & it will become increasingly easy to hide things.

In your wisdom can you explain why since China, Japan, and India have sent cameras to the moon (since last year) - we have seen very little from these guys?

Check 1966 - 1967 Lunar Orbiter photos, how crisp and clear, and detailed these are (and how many photos there are) - and we are talking 1966 technology....

Now in 2009 - what do we get ? Shoddy, minimal almost blurry video?

So riddle me that batman!

It's all of those points you raise that make it such an interesting topic.

Regarding not seeing anything from the countries that were photographing things last year, I think others have made the point that it's a large & time consuming job to get all the data sorted & on-line for the public.

Of course, if they are also looking for pictures that will require editing &/or removal before the files are made available, that could also contribute to delays.

I'm sure I have seen very clear pictures taken during recent years that are every bit as good as the earlier pictures to which you refer.

Agree to disagree about the photos.

Hey they can send the photos to me if they have trouble funding analysts to scour over their HI-RES photos (that we haven't seen). I'll do it for free of course, just to help my fellow man.

You must think it a bit odd no photos of a flag on the nearside - or any of the past Apollo equipment has been seen? Does this not skewer NASA into the realm of just being a tad deceptive?

I think so.

haha yeah ask the Mayans about that. oh wait, we cant because SOMEONE wanted all their gold...

Essentially, from a summer solstice view; from stone henge or such, the sun MAY appear to be inbetween earth and the "center" of the milky way.

Because of the physical properties of Resonance, and such, we have yet another "threat" to add to the seemingly endless list,
