‘No Proof’ Exists That the United States Landed on the Moon in 1969, Says Former Head of Russia’s Space Agency

Published

Over half a century has passed since Neil Armstrong made his “giant
leap for mankind,” but depending on who you ask, Armstrong may or may
not have ever left the planet.

Even now, NASA’s historic feat is being challenged.

Some people believe that the U.S. government faked the moon landings
in an effort to beat the Russians in the space race. They claim that
Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin acted out their mission on a secret film
set either in the Hollywood Hills or in Area 51.

Dmitry Rogozin, the former head of the Russian space agency
Roscosmos, said approximately ten years ago that he had set out on a
quest to locate irrefutable evidence that the United States had landed
on the moon in 1969, per Zero Hedge.

The lack of proof led him to doubt that Apollo 11 landed on the moon.

“About ten years ago, when I worked in the Government, I sent an
official request to Roskosmos to provide me with documentary evidence of
the Americans’ stay on the moon, which at that time was still at the
disposal of the federal agency,” Rogozin said in a post on Telegram on Sunday.

“I was painfully embarrassed by the fact that the Soviet cosmonauts
returning from multi-day expeditions could barely stand on their feet
and underwent a long recovery after such flights, and the Americans
crawled out of their lunar ships like cucumbers from the garden,” he
added.

“Do you know what I got in return? The book “Conquest of the Moon by
Astronauts” with the comment of cosmonaut Leonov that they really were
there, because “they told him about it themselves”!

“In 2018, when I went to work at the state corporation Roskosmos, I
continued to search for this evidence, but I didn’t find anything there,
except for the angry accusations of some of our fans to go to America
at someone else’s expense of academicians that I, they say, undermine
the “sacred cooperation with NASA”, I also received one angry call from a
high-ranking official accusing me of “aggravating the international
situation” with my doubts.

“Yes, I did not undermine or aggravate anything, but only by virtue
of my nature I tried to get to the bottom of the details and establish,
at least for myself, the true state of affairs in the issue of
exploration of the Moon by our competitors. It was not clear to me how
the United States, at that level of technological development of the 60s
of the last century, did what they still cannot do now?” said Rogozin.

He ended his post saying, “Thus, instead of proof that the Americans
were on the moon, I received proof that their people were in our
“establishment”. Which was also an important conclusion.”

“Alien bases” may be hiding off the coast of Alaska, researchers say

Published

By

An organization of civilian volunteers dedicated to the study of
unidentified flying objects (UFOs) has issued a statement based on
decades of studying eyewitness reports. According to Mutual UFO Network,
“alien bases” may be hiding off the coast of Alaska, reports the-sun.com.

Researchers
say the deep waters in this region may hold something surprising. After
analyzing reports from the ship’s crew from 1945, they hypothesized
that alien objects could be lurking underwater, off the coast of the
state.

Alleged sightings of alien spacecraft nearly 80 years ago
have become a key point in research. Members of the organization believe
that UFOs move over water and may have “bases.”

Researchers
allege crew members on a U.S. Army transporter ship sailing past Island
Adak saw a massive UFO sized 150 to 200 feet emerge from the water.
Although these reports are nowhere to be found, UFO enthusiasts believe
the unidentified flying vehicles likely were used to commute to
different supposed alien bases hiding in the deep waters.

As
the “secret reports” of the sailors aren’t available, investigators
have taken it upon themselves to unravel the mystery surrounding the
unidentified flying objects and they believe the ocean has alien bases
that humans aren’t aware of.

Enthusiasts claim that UFOs may be
using “underwater networks” or wormholes as superhighways to travel
between points in the universe. UFO researcher Johnny Enoch added that
such objects could serve as a vehicle for aliens.

There are also
theories that other places on Earth could serve as bases for alien life.
A mountain in Seoul, South Korea is believed to be hiding a UFO,
according to Dr. Steven Greer.

An episode of the series “The
Alaska Triangle” features satellite imagery that claims to show one of
the “alien bases” in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of California.

Meanwhile,
another researcher featured in the program showed markings from the sea
bed that she claimed could have been roadways for aliens.

While
the mysteries of the ocean remain unsolved, researchers continue their
search, trying to unravel the mystery of what may be hiding in the
depths of the waters off the coast of Alaska.

Enormous City-Size Comet Racing Towards Earth Grows ‘Devil Horns’ After Massive Eruption

Published

By


A volcanic comet the size of a mid-sized US city has
violently exploded for the second time in four months as it continues
racing toward the earth. And following the massive eruption, the cloud
of ice and gas sprouted what looked like a pair of gigantic devil horns.

The city-sized comet, named 12P/Pons-Brooks, is a cryovolcanic — or
cold volcano — comet. It has a solid nucleus, with an estimated diameter
of 18.6 miles, and is filled with a mix of ice, dust and gas known as
cryomagma. The nucleus is surrounded by a fuzzy cloud of gas called a
coma, which leaks out of the comet’s interior.

When solar radiation heats the comet’s insides, the pressure builds up
and the comet violently explodes, ejaculating its ice-cold innards into
space through seeping cracks in the nucleus’s shell.

Live Science report:
On Oct. 5, astronomers detected a large outburst from 12P, after the
comet became dozens of times brighter due to the extra light reflecting
from its expanded coma, according to the British Astronomical Association (BAA), which has been closely monitoring the comet 

Over the next few days, the comet’s coma expanded further and developed its “peculiar horns,” Spaceweather.com
reported. Some experts joked that the irregular shape of the coma also
makes the comet look like a science fiction spaceship, such as the
Millennium Falcon from Star Wars.

The unusual shape of the comet’s coma is likely due to an irregularity in the shape of 12P’s nucleus, Richard Miles, a BAA astronomer, told Live Science after the comet’s previous eruption.
The outflowing gas is likely being partially obstructed by a notch
sticking out on the nucleus, Miles said. As the gas continues to expand
away from the comet, the irregularity in the coma’s shape becomes more
defined and noticeable, he added.

12P is currently hurtling toward the inner solar system, where it
will be slingshotted around the sun on its highly elliptical 71-year
orbit around our home star — similar to the green comet Nishimura, which
pulled off a near-identical maneuver on Sept. 17

12P will reach its closest point to Earth on April 21, 2024, when it
may become visible to the naked eye before being catapulted back toward
the outer solar system. It will not return until 2095.

This is the second time 12P has sprouted its horns this year. On July
20, astronomers witnessed the comet blow its top for the first time in
69 years (mainly due to its outbursts being less frequent and harder to
spot during the rest of its orbit). On that occasion, 12P’s coma grew to
around 143,000 miles (230,000 km), which is around 7,000 times wider
than the comet’s nucleus.

It is unclear how large the coma grew during the most recent
eruption, but there are signs the outburst was “twice as intense” as the
previous one, the BAA noted. By now, the coma has likely shrunk back to
near its normal size.

As 12P continues to race toward the sun, there is a high probability
that we will witness several more major eruptions. It is possible that
those eruptions will be even bigger than the most recent one as the
comet soaks up more solar radiation, according to Spaceweather.com.

But 12P is not the only volcanic comet that astronomers are currently
monitoring: 29P/Schwassmann-Wachmann (29P) — the most volatile volcanic
comet in the solar system — has also had several noticeable eruptions
in the last year.

In December 2022, 29P experienced its largest eruption in around 12 years, which sprayed around 1 million tons of cryomagma into space. And in April this year, for the first time ever, scientists accurately predicted one of 29P’s eruptions before it actually happened, thanks to a slight increase in the comet’s brightness in the lead-up to the icy explosion.
