No, this is not a joke. Let the conspiracy theories commence!


No-fly zones will come into effect on the moon for the very first time by the end of this month! Why, even buffer zones that spacecraft may have to avoid will come into existence. The reason: avoiding any spraying of rocket exhaust or dust onto certain historical sites and artefacts on the moon.

I personally think this story is a coverup ...for what is really going on. I think that TPTB from U.S. and other countries joined together quite some time ago.....and there are places in space that are already habitable. They don't really want us (common folk) to know about...that in case of a nuclear holocaust....they have somewhere to go...literally ...off this planet!

I think they took the news of a planned pizza place on the moon a little too seriously .....

Privatize space but then restrict where you can go just in case any rocket savvy conspiracy nerds decide to get ambitious. Genius

What are they hiding? Seriously, rocket fuel damaging moon dust? Artifacts? Unless they're alien artifacts, the fuel won't hurt the old lunar lander...maybe make those prisms they put up there cloudy, but honestly...

I'd say either there's alien stuff of some kind (not really a believer myself), or more than likely we have some sort of secret settlement(s) up there.

Quote from the article:
"Incidentally, the restriction list contains more than the historical sites. For instance, the list includes studying discarded food and abandoned astronaut faeces."

I think if Nasa really wants to protect their poop from prying eyes, they'll need to send up a couple of rent-a-cops per site to chase off would be feces thieves.

Out of all of them, I have to say this is a weird one. That explanation is completely random aswell, just doesnt make sense. Who would be flying past the moon anyway?

Its not like there are roads that pass the moon that commuters take everyday, theres only the shuttle that could fly past the moon and spray rocket fuel dust about or whatever??

I agree, IF this story is true it is extremely odd to have a no fly zone around the moon.. BUT
I mean come on it is thehindu.com. Interesting thread none the less

Oh no, I can see it coming...... the need for environmently freindly rocket exhaust.
Maybe there will be protester up there waving signs at passing crafts.

Surely its just a case of wanting to protect the landing sites of the places where man has landed / interacted with the moon. Like a sort of a museum, but the real thing for all to see, now and for the future ? Imagine if you could fast forward 1000 years and take a look back at the sheer *snip* of what man of that day acheived with such sh*t equiptement. Ha ha, imagine it. I'd love it. Archaic machines, from 1000 years ago, still in the place that they landed. With all the footprints and vehicles dotted about too.

That's my take on it anyways. I'm always open to other reasons though, anythings possible.

The article is a hoax. There is not a single source reported. Tabloid junk.

Really???? ...... Really?????...... REALLY???? I hate reading into things like this but something doesn't smell quiet right to be about this. The amounts of dust and rocket leavings that could be sprayed on these historical sites I would venture a guess to be some tiny could it really have an impact. I wonder what this is really about?

Some one has just had a moment of clarity and decided to putas into action measures to preserve them now , surely ?

Rockets are becoming cheaper by the year, won't be long till they have the people carrying versions of what they are developing for carrying cargo now.

More privateers in space, its essentially unregulated in space at the moment isn't it ?

Thats even without the possibility that man made machines can now enter space as easy as the sky. Either way, its going to need preserving sooner or later.

Sure there's a source.

According to Science, by the end of this month NASA is expected to come up with a set of “recommendations” for spacecraft and astronauts visiting the “U.S. government property on the moon.” Of course, these recommendations will not be legally binding as the 1967 Outer Space Treaty makes it clear that the lunar surface has no owner.

www.thehindu.com...



As dozens of private teams race to return to the moon as soon as next year, spurred on by $30 million in prize money from Google and the X Prize Foundation, NASA is wrestling with how to safeguard the historic and scientific value of more than three dozen sites containing remnants of America's golden era of space exploration, including the spot where Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin Jr. left the first footprints on the lunar surface. Later this month, the agency plans to issue what it calls "recommendations" for spacecraft, or future astronauts, visiting U.S. government property on the moon.

I guess they are getting tired of all the UFO traffic coming and going from the earth to the moon. Maybe this will cause the UFOs to visit earth more frequently, forced disclosure!

The article clearly states:


“Apollo 11 and 17 sites [will] remain off-limits, with ground-travel buffers of 75 metres and 225 metres from each respective lunar lander,” states the July 20 guidelines of NASA. Science journal had obtained the guidelines.


I did a quick google and found this article in Science Magazine, written by Lucas Laursen - NASA to Launch Guidelines to Protect Lunar Artifacts

I'm reaching here.......
Maybe the fines for neglegent disturbance of artifacts in a lunar setting will generate much needed funds for future space exploration....

Obviously they are expecting an influx of moon hoaxers to send their own spacecraft to determine if NASA really did go to the moon


I would'nt want some dumbazz trampling all over my major achievement either
