good find the nasa bunch will of course supress the truth of the moon (death star) how are they getting away with the repeated lies disinfo blurry pics when will people speak out and demand the truth.I am so sick and tired of nasa and there bs. I wish I was a hacker connected to anonymous I would so hack there servers get the truth out
Originally posted by KandinskyThe landing traces are there. The 'moon storm' apparently exists. Its severity must be fairly mild...streamers rather whipped-up dust clouds.
It's even possible that these storms have been spotted from Earth: For centuries, there have been reports of strange glowing lights on the moon, known as "lunar transient phenomena" or LTPs. Some LTPs have been observed as momentary flashes--now generally accepted to be visible evidence of meteoroids impacting the lunar surface. But others have appeared as amorphous reddish or whitish glows or even as dusky hazy regions that change shape or disappear over seconds or minutes. Early explanations, never satisfactory, ranged from volcanic gases to observers' overactive [sic] imaginations (including visiting extraterrestrials).
Now a new scientific explanation is gaining traction. "It may be that LTPs are caused by sunlight reflecting off rising plumes of electrostatically lofted lunar dust," Olhoeft suggests.
The next time you see the moon, trace your finger along the terminator, the dividing line between lunar night and day. That's where the storm is. It's a long and skinny dust storm, stretching all the way from the north pole to the south pole, swirling across the surface, following the terminator as sunrise ceaselessly sweeps around the moon.

Come come now ArMaP... the choice was moon base or volcanoes. He told us about both

According to Glotch, the discovery of nonbasaltic volcanoes on the far side of the moon "shows that the moon is more compositionally diverse than we realized before this new age of lunar exploration."
"As scientists, we're still digesting all this relatively new data and working to understand what it means in terms of lunar history."
the moon is geologically dead... Now they talk about volcanoes? After all these years of people, astronomers and astronauts seeing flashes of light, odd glows and clouds on the moon (TLP's), NASA is now telling us we have rare silica volcanoes with radioactive thorium

i wonder why the USA and Russia stopped with the moon missions
If there's water on the moon poles in the form of ice there has to be oxygen therefore breathable atmosphere. they have to return there and create an outpost dammit.

Yes, the Moon is pretty much dead geologically. That doesn't mean it always was and neither NASA or any other lunar scientists ever claimed that it was. Contrary to what the Time article claims, it is thought that volcanic activity could have persisted until as recently as 1 billion years ago.
BTW, did you know that thorium is found in Earth's crust at an average concentration of 12ppm?
Jolliff and his colleagues can't say with certainty how the volcano formed, but they are reasonably certain it can't be due to heat generated by radioactive deposits in the moon's core, since they would have long ago decayed. Instead, the outer core of the moon might not be cold and solidified, as geologists assumed, but rather may still be molten. "A pulse of heat from deep in the mantle might melt a pocket of ... rock at the base of the crust," Jolliff says. "As this lava began to crystallize, it would have differentiated to produce a more silicic melt that was enriched in thorium."

You spin a fine conspiracy with the use of simple suggestion!
June 5, 2007: Picture this: A spaceship swoops in from the void, plunging toward a cloudy planet about the size of Earth. A laser beam lances out from the ship; it probes the planet's clouds, striving to reach the hidden surface below. Meanwhile, back on the craft's home world, scientists perch on the edge of their seats waiting to see what happens.
Sounds like science fiction? This is real, and it's happening today.

Really? So Thorium is there, yet your asserting we shouldn't detect radiation? Really?
which resulted in dome-like formations above the surface.
This hot spot wasn't there before. As you just said there are small blue spots in the area in question on that image I posted... but now we have THIS..bright red hot spot..
What's more, while all lunar volcanoes were assumed to have last stirred 3 billion to 4 billion years ago, this one appears much fresher — just a billion or so years old.

Wouldn't a molten outer core be incompatible with the readings of the seismometers when they crashed the Apollo 12 Lunar Module and the Apollo 13's spent third stage on the Moon?

Zorgon's crew posted pictures of the lunar volcanoes the night of the impact.
Of course, we didn't know what they were back then.
Here they are - the first pictures of active lunar volcanoes ever published:
