Here is some new discovery about our natural satellite :



Apollo astronauts may be garnering another prize from their exploits of more than 3 decades ago. They left seismometers across the face of the moon to probe its interior, but no one had been able to paint a clear picture from the data the sensors collected. Now, two independent groups have reanalyzed the Apollo data using modern but very different techniques, and both teams say they have detected lunar seismologists' prime target: a core of iron that is still molten 4.5 billion years after the moon's formation.

Some material for those who believe/disregard/are interested on the hollow earth theory.

They know there's something under the moon. And it's not iron. They lie too much.

It occurs to me that they would be able to deduce a molten iron core from a magnetic field before they would be able to find the evidence in seismic data, however the moon's magnetic field, such as it is, is just too weak to support such an iron core hypothesis.

So this is interesting new data to ponder upon, I'm looking forward to the resolution of these conflicting datasets. Perhaps it just that the iron core is not spinning.

Its a star gate, there's one in every planets core & one in every sun.

Iron core huh? Maybe the alien base in the center is made of iron? lol

This is a duplicate thread. Original thread here: www.abovetopsecret.com...

I don't think there's much inconsistency in the data.

First the moon's iron core is tiny even compared to the moon and even tinier when compared to the earth's core.
Second, the molten proportion of the moons iron core (if this analysis is correct) is very small in comparison to the Earth's.
Third, the rotation of the moon is only about once a month versus once a day for the earth.

When you add all this up I don't find it surprising the moon has no magnetic field, assuming this research is correct. I saw the size if the iron core confirmed by another method/study I cited in the original thread, but the the proportion of it that's molten is a new finding. I suspect more confirmation about the molten portion would be helpful.
