Thousands of pro-and amateur astronomers out there observe the lunar surface with far more powerful machines and do not see bases. Only a very kooky, vocal, minority claim to see signs of life; nevertheless, lunar base musings die-hard. (1)
What I did not discuss at length were the logistics required to make a base during the war and in its aftermath. Cranks like Vladimir Terziski claim the Nazis landed on the moon in 1942. Now, what made it possible for the Nazis to make it to the moon, and to have lived there for so long? (2)
“A pair of jeans, a pullover and sneakers are just about enough. Everything NASA has told the world about the Moon is a lie, and it was done to keep the exclusivity of the club from joinings by the third world countries. All these physical conditions make it a lot more easier to build a Moon base.
“Ever since their first day of landing on the Moon, the Germans started boring and tunneling under the surface, and by the end of the war there was a small Nazi research base on the Moon. The free energy tachyon drive craft of the Haunebu-1 and 2 type were used after 1944 to haul people, material and the first robots to the construction site on the Moon.” (2)
However, it gets even better! In the 50s, a joint U.S/Russian space initiative went to the moon. They spent the night with the Nazis. The base the two superpowers built in the 60s now has 40,000 people in it.
The idiotic David Hatcher Childress, and his good pal Joe Farrell at Adventures Unlimited Press have ripped off a good deal of this ludicrous bull crap. Indeed, Hatcher Childress is a popular figure of ridicule at TSW and in serious ufology and conspiracy circles.
What I like about this job is finding or being given information that makes sense of conspirahypocrite musings. Moreover, restoring reason to a potentially fascinating argument gone insane. The notion of moon bases being constructed has long been entertained. Documents going back to the 50s and 60s discussed all manner of moon habitation.
What’s interesting in the documents are the massive logistic problems the U.S. and the Soviet Union would have had in establishing colonies in space. As you and I know, the moon’s atmosphere is hostile to unprotected Earthlings. Moreover, neither the U.S. or U.S.S.R had tachyon free energy craft.
Nevertheless, it is fascinating to note that many of the problems the United States and other powers faced back in their reviews of potential moon bases from 1959-1961 have likely been countered by now. Thus, the confidential information and plans for usage of the moon today would make for fascinating reading. (3)
Communication from the Earth to the moon would likely be continuous and somewhat faster nowadays. The construction of permanent moon bases would be constructed with robots, not by human builders. Human’s would likely oversee the project and be on hand to repair certain machinery, with robot laborers greatly cutting down on the costs and logistics involved.
The use of REE “Rare Earth Elements” will also be a driving factor in future moon bases. Most scientists believe the moon has many untapped reserves of europium, and tantalum for example.
New Energy Technologies
The Congressional Research Service (CRS) noted the following:
“The study pointed out that rare earth elements are used for new energy technologies and national security applications and asked: Is the United States vulnerable to supply disruptions of these elements? Are they essential to U.S. national security and economic well-being?
Among the policy options flagged in the Congressional Research Service, assessment is establishing a government-run economic stockpile and/or private-sector stockpiles. Doing so ‘may be a prudent investment’, the study noted and would contain supplies of specific rare earth elements broadly needed for ‘green initiatives’ and defense applications.” (4)
However, it appears kindly worded and slightly wistful. Anybody who knows anything about Washington understands Congressional committees are the last to know about anything. Moreover, they can only speculate about possible future actions.
The irony is the Military Intelligence Industrial Complex (MIIC) likely decided on a course of action for exploiting the moon’s resources generations before CRS began thinking aloud. I hasten to add if you thought the Middle East resource grab was something, the plans for the moon, and securing it for US interests, will be enormous. (4)
The Ultimate Idiocy of Lunar Base Nazi’s and Allies
The above is fascinating and presents far more questions about the United States’ role in space and its goals for the moon. There may well be a number of secret experimental missions to the moon going on as I type. Yet, I doubt it to be honest.
The United States doesn’t need to throw something up in space to see if it works. The Pentagon’s space simulation computers would blow our minds. They would have figured out with more efficient fueling and speed for space travel, the potential riches from mining our closest neighbor would be immense.
Indeed, the idea of a vast moon base made for human habitation is unnecessary and economically stupid.
Duncan Jones’, slow moving “Moon” was one of the best science fiction films of all time. It gave a wonderful view of what shape our colonization of the moon will likely take. In this regard, it actually has some educational value, a rare occurrence in Hollywood science fiction.
Jones notes there will be no real colonization of the moon in the near future. It’s a series of one-man controlled mining operations under the control of a mining company. It is a lonely, boring, tedious, and unglamorous place. Hence, why I stand by my belief the United States and others will be waiting for improvements in robotics manufacturing before undertaking any major moon operations.
I also believe they would have come to this conclusion at the same time as the releases I have discussed were in the pipes. Thus, they were not included in these documents because advanced robotics has been an ongoing operation. Dare I say cute little Asimo is likely a tin can by comparison.
