“We live in an odd world,” Neil Armstrong once wrote, “with brilliant technologies yet to be found and breakthroughs available to anybody who can peel away one of the truth’s protective layers.”
Quick forward to now, and many people are aware that not anything that occurs behind closed doors is made official. This is why the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) was passed; it is a federal law that allows for the complete or partial publication of previously unreleased information and records within US government control. There are also numerous impediments to full disclosure, one of which being the use of the word “national security” to keep documents secret and inaccessible to the public. This has become even more evident as a result of Wikileaks and Edward Snowden’s admissions, but the problem is much bigger. Is it true that the US government classifies about 500 million pages of documents per year? This is a whole different subject, and if you want to learn more about it, check out our article on the “Black Budget.”
What NASA astronauts had to say about the Moon
A number of NASA staff have made some surprising remarks regarding the Moon. George Leonard, a NASA scientist and photo researcher who obtained a number of official NASA Moon photographs, most of which he published in his book “Somebody Else Is On The Moon,” is one of these people. They view descriptions of huge original prints despite the fact that the photographs are small and the resolution isn’t up to today’s standards. We can’t be sure the pictures were real, and their poor quality just adds to the mystery. These photographs are much less credible than his claims of what was found on the Moon, as well as his verified NASA credentials
Leonard was far from the only one with a proven track record who wanted to educate the world about the Moon and the images taken during the Apollo missions. “Ladies and gentlemen, my country, NASA, which to those of us in the United States stood for Never A Straight Answer, proceeded to erase 40 rolls of film from the Apollo Program — the flight to the Moon, the flight around the Moon, the landings on the Moon, and the walking guys here and there. They removed 40 rolls of film from those cases for Christ’s sake.
The quotation above was said by Bob Dean, who was speaking at a conference in Europe. Bob is a retired US Army Command Sargent Major who served at NATO’s Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe as an intelligence analyst (SHAPE). Thousands of documents, as well as hundreds of credible witness testimony, have been made public about the UFO phenomenon. It’s also worth recalling that the Russian government recently called for an international investigation into the US moon landings, alleging the disappearance of video footage from the 1969 mission. They’re also referring to the (roughly) 400 kilograms of lunar rock found during numerous flights between 1969 and 1972. NASA was aware of extraterrestrial activity on the Moon, according to Leonard, and wanted to hide it. He isn’t the only one who has said this. “Read the tales, hear the folklore, and try to figure out what’s going on, but there’s no doubt we’re being visited…” We have never been able to grasp how amazing, exciting, complex, and far-reaching the world we live in is. Humanity has long wondered if we are the only ones on the planet. However, we only have real proofs during our time. No, we aren’t by ourselves.” Dr. Edgar Mitchell, ScD, NASA astronaut (6th man to walk on the moon).
Leonard isn’t the only NASA physicist who has had outlandish views on the Moon. A plasma physicist, Dr. John Brandenburg, recently said the same thing. He was the Deputy Manager of the Clementine Moon Project, a joint NASA-Ballistic Missile Defense Organization space mission (BMDO). The probe discovered water at the Moon’s poles in 1994.
