I just wonder who went to the trouble to make the tree's in that photo look like rocks. A lot of work went into that. High pass and low pass filters and what not.

If anyone can provide an e-mail address for Sgt. Karl Wolf, I know the right person who would interview him ASAP.

Walt Disney and Dr. Wernher von Braun
Dr. Werhner von Braun, then Chief, Guided Missile Development Operation Division at Army Ballistic Missile Agency (ABMA) in Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, was visited by Walt Disney in 1954. In the 1950's, von Braun worked with Disney Studio as a technical director, making three films about space exploration for television. A model of the V-2 rocket is in background.
Disney, who would become an international icon, opened Disneyland the same year that von Braun worked as a technical director on three Disney TV programs about space.
The first, ``Man in Space,'' aired on ABC on March 9, 1955. The second, ``Man and the Moon,'' aired the same year, and the final film, ``Mars and Beyond,'' was televised on Dec. 4, 1957.
Hi, Ron...Good Morning!
Thanks for the note and you certainly touch on points of similarity and interest (proving that great minds think alike!).
....snipped material not relevant to this thread....
Your comment on 'liquifying' minerals on the moon is 'right on time'. Our group, presently, is engaged in deep discussion as to modifying the minerals to be harvested, and liquifying (H3, for example) is/has been the subject of much heated discussion. Actually, I suggested (to our group) not so much 'liquifying' ...but 'changing the state' . If you look at some of my patents...you'll note that in these I teach 'change of state' (from liquid to a gas, for example) to accomplish some desired result: Entropy vs Enthalpy, for example. The discussions continue as of this writing, with all suggestions being considered by our group (and others) prior to making recommendations to those within and outside our group.
On the mining-thing. I can only state that in the broadest of senses mining operations have taken place on the lunar surface and are presently being conducted on Mars (and continue on the Moon). Although the use of terminology, 'mining' has been downplayed (by NASA) and there exists an 'internal memo'
....snipped specific references... you don't have a need to know ....
Use of terminology, e.g., 'mining', could be considered (by some countries) to constitute a violation of the International Space Treaty. Thus, NASA is real-careful about use of terminology that could be considered a breach of 'Policy and Protocol'. I can give you this stuff as it's 'public information'. You have to look between the spaces/lines for more info and draw your own conclusions.

Tower on moon seen in new data from LRO image
[edit on 12-7-2009 by meaguire]
A mosaic of more than 250 images showing the complex and diverse Aristarchus region of the Moon in approximately “natural” colors (blue = 415 nanometers, green = 750 nanometers, red = 950 nanometers). The plateau is an uplifted block of complex, highland terrain, partly flooded
by later mare basalt lavas. Dark, pyroclastic glasses partly cover the uplifted terrain. The crater Aristarchus (47 kilometers in diameter) has formed in the southeast corner of the plateau, excavating both highlands and mare rocks.
False-color mosaic of the Aristarchus Plateau made with three bands of the UV-VIS camera on Clementine (see caption of slide #8 for color representation scheme). In this image, blues are fresh highland materials, deep reds are dark pyroclastic (ash) deposits, yellows are outcrops of fresh basalt (in crater and rille walls), and reddish-purples are mare lava flows. The sinuous rille is Schröter’s valley, a large lava channel on the plateau. The mosaic shows the quality of the full-resolution Clementine dataset. This map is overlaid on a shaded relief rendition of the Moon to allow better location of the various color units and their association with geological features.
Map of the concentration of iron in the Aristarchus plateau. Using the 750-nanometer and 950-nanometer images, Lucey et al. (1995) developed a technique to determine the concentration of iron in lunar soils. This image is color-coded in increments of 2 wt%, with black being 0–2 wt% ferrous oxide and white being >18 wt% ferrous oxide. Note the high iron content of the surrounding mare lavas and the dark mantling deposits of the plateau. In contrast, Aristarchus Crater has penetrated the high-iron geological units, exposing the low-iron highland material that underlies the whole region.

edited to add:
I found the little video from youtube, here ya go (its about 5min in)

How do you know he had a "distinguished career"? How do you know he had respect and a good name? How do you know what he had been doing for the previous 36 years? How do you even know he did what he said he did in 1965. Were any credentials provided to show his "crytpo" security rating?
There is just so much fluff involved with the Disclosure Project. Yeah sure, there were some "impressive" names at the press club meeting.
