    Yea and we know _why_ they "banned" nuke testing in the oceans, atmosphere, and outer space only "allowing" underground nuke testing..... To hide from _them aliens_ who'd been telling them, stop with the nukes.

    now I understand this news: "A purported moon rock given to the Dutch government to commemorate the first manned lunar landing in 1969 has turned out to be only a chunk of petrified wood. The Dutch national museum says one of its prized possessions, a rock supposedly brought back from the moon by U.S. astronauts, is just a piece of petrified wood"......... maybe NASA was concerned that rocks will ignite themselves at the contact with oxygen.....so they decided to give some fake rocks to the dutchies...... :)

    There were also fears of the lunar dust bringing some kind of diseases with them. The astronauts were prepared and willing to be held captive and die in such a case. So as to not spread it. They were really prepared for many many things. (Including being stranded on the moon and such) As you should when venturing to the unknown. What amazes me about this is how the astronauts were basically giving up on their life before going. Yet returned safely and none of those worst case scenarios happened despite their preparations.

    Very interesting stuff here although also there are some holes in the story. The light coloured deposits shown are expalined as being ejecta from volcanoes outside the mares but that surely makes them very rare finds. Also we have moon rocks landing on earth each year so why did we send fighter pilots to get more samples from the moon? You state that the missions were scientific in nature, but what discovery did science make definitively from them? You repeat the claim that the missions were supposed to make discoveries about the early solar system as well as the formation of the moon. Can you honestly hold that such information was really gathered from Apollo? What was discovered outside of what we already knew? Do you believe all the claims made by Apollo? Do you still believe the moon is as dry as was claimed? Do you believe it is hollow and rung like a bell with seismic resonance when a rocket crashed on its surface? If Apollo was a hoax we are sure to find out soon. It would explain why Van Allen's report stated that radioactive was extremely energetic around earth and that no moon excursions could be undertaken. It would explain how the terrible solar onslaught outside the atmosphere posed no problem for the crew. So many reason to believe apollo was a hoax. Ive made some little vids of my own on that subject. You can view them here, koreporter.com/v/%EB%B9%84%EB%94%94%EC%98%A4-Zztbw7MLlkI.html

    This tells me 2 things: that this is where the filmed the real "moon landing", and that nuclear radiation must not be as bad as they tell us if 900 bombs were detonated there and 40 years later you're walking around without radiation suit.

And then we're only talking about space and its origins we are researching! what about Evolution and biology? its amazing how such complex procceses can make such a dreamy almost sureal space that we creatures call home. like, no one can come up with that stuff!
