Critical thinking skills please, boondock....less sensationalism:
so does this news corroborate or disprove
the hollow moon theory I have read about here
on ATS ???
"hollow moon" is a complete joke, not even qualifies as a valid hypothesis, let alone a "theory". It stems from a crap book (forget the
title..."Who Built the Moon?", I think...) and the (unfortunate) analogy used by a geologist / seismologist / scientist way back decades ago...which
leads me to this:
And what about that NASA tape where they heard
the ringing or echoes from within the moon..
....which is a misinterpretation of the comments I alluded to, above. AFTER the Apollo 11 landing, since they took a seismograph along, and set it
up, scientists have been able to measure, record, study "moonquakes" ....this helps to determine the density, and composition of the Moon's
interior, and whether or not it still has a molten core, etc.
To assist them, rather than having to wait for naturally-occurring activity, they used the discarded Apollo spacecraft components to impact the Moon,
and thus trigger the "sounds" that they wanted. The term "rang like a bell" was just a choice of words to describe the fact that the sounds, from
impact, reverberated back and forth several times, within the SOLID structure of the Moon's globe.
The word "bell" is conjuring up images in people's heads (people who either can't be bothered to look up the details of the science here ---
, people who WISH to perpetuate the "hollow" myth) ... "bell" is something that people picture in their heads, and from
experience, people know that a bell (a real bell, NOT the Moon) is "hollow". SO, that is where the misconception comes from.
can "ring like a bell", too!! Ever seen a tuning fork? Musical instruments....many stringed instruments, like a piano,
rely on a sounding board...it vibrates, and increases the sound quality.
If you laid your ear against a piece of granite, or material similar to the Moon's composition....like igneous rock....and struck it with a metal rod
(the rock, NOT your ear!) you'd hear that SOLID rock "ring like a bell" too....
Now....where people jump from (in the thread title) the word "chamber", to "hollow Moon", boggles my mind! A "chamber" is basically a large
room. (The french word for "room"is "chambre
"Chamber" can mean cavern, cave, etc too. AND, as seen in the post just above.....it is merely a portion
of an old lava tube
("rille") that hasn't yet had the roof collapse inward....THAT is it!!
