Traveling to the Moon Again? Exploring the Antarctic Might Be a Better Alternative
By Daily Bell Staff - June 06, 2016

U.S. Set to Approve Moon Mission … Commercial Space Venture Startup proposes to land payload of scientific gear on lunar surface some time next year. -Wall Street Journal

So now private trips to the moon are to take place.

And yet, there is plenty of controversy regarding moon trips.

A few years ago, various Chinese officials demanded a formal investigation into claims that the US even went to the moon.

Here, from a World News Daily article, Sept. 2014:

CHINESE LUNAR ROVER FINDS NO EVIDENCE OF AMERICAN MOON LANDINGS … Top officials of the Chinese Space Program have come out this morning and expressed their feelings that the American moon landings “were a complete hoax” reports the Beijing Daily Express.

200 high-ranking officials from the Chinese Space Program have signed a petition asking explanations from the American government and the release of classified NASA information concerning the American moon landings that would prove to the World that the moon landings were not an elaborately orchestrated hoax to fool the World about America’s space program capabilities.

Of course, there have been accusations that the Chinese never landed on the moon, either.

But suspicions regarding American claims are shared by Russians.

Back in June, 2015, the UK Daily Mail posted an article on Russian skepticism.

 A Russian official has has cast doubt on the first moon landings and demanded an investigation into what really happened after original Nasa footage of the event disappeared.

Vladimir Markin, a spokesman for the Russian government’s Investigative Committee, says he wants an inquiry after the video from 1969 and a piece of lunar rock, which was brought back to earth, went missing.

In an opinion piece in the Russian newspaper Izvestia, Mr Markin says that such an inquiry is vital to reveal new insights into the historical space journey.

Apparently, it is true that NASA erased the tapes. Here, according to the UK Independent, which commented on Markin’s demands:

In 2009, Nasa itself admitted that it had erased the original video recordings of the first moon landing among 200,000 other tapes in order to save money, according to Reuters.

However, Nasa has since restored copies of the landing, using recordings from other sources such as CBS News. The organization says that due to restoration efforts, the recordings’ quality is superior to the original one that has gone missing.

Why on earth would NASA destroy what may be the single-most important document in the history of mankind? Such actions are part of what fuel suspicion about NASA and the space program generally.

The accusations persist, especially on Youtube.

The idea is that NASA destroyed the originals because if placed on the Internet and subjected to scrutiny, they would reveal inconsistencies that would create a great controversy.

Those who question NASA’s original claims regarding moon-landings will no doubt question NASA’s latest venture.

More:

U.S. officials appear poised to make history by approving the first private space mission to go beyond Earth’s orbit, according to people familiar with the details.

The government’s endorsement would eliminate the largest regulatory hurdle to plans by Moon Express, a relatively obscure space startup, to land a roughly 20-pound package of scientific hardware on the Moon sometime next year.

It also would provide the biggest federal boost yet for unmanned commercial space exploration and, potentially, the first in an array of for-profit ventures throughout the solar system.

Long ago, we decided not to take a position on the moon landings. But we’ll continue to document apparent inconsistencies and to follow up on additional “space news.”

In this case, we anticipate, sooner or later, that the alternative ‘Net media will begin to suggest that the focus on space travel is intended to distract attention from a much greater and more credible mystery.

This has to do with the rumored existence of mineral-rich land on the other side of the Antarctic.

This claim, in fact, was made by  Rear Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd, Jr., an American naval officer who explored both the Arctic and Antarctic.

Byrd, a Freemason, was the recipient of the US Medal of Honor, and in his trips to the Antarctic, he received funding from the US government.

Returning from the Antarctic, he gave a specific account of finding a large, unexplored land beyond the Antarctic itself.

You can see his account here, as he described what he’d seen during a television interview.

Conclusion: Due to an international treaty, the Antarctic is basically off-limits to people who want to explore it. But if there is a huge, mineral-rich land beyond the ice, as Byrd suggested, resources currently aimed at the moon might be better employed to explore what lies beyond the Antarctic.

    I have wondered for some time at the “gov” interest in Antarctica versus what they keep telling the public is there. Smell a scam.

      Well if the world is not a spinning ball but unmovable, flat or spherical, then the biggest evidence found would be the endless miles of ice “land” as a wall around the earth. But we are prevented from exploring this.

    It is disturbing that authoritarians seek to control access to even the most remote areas.

    There also appears to be a large amount of disinfo surrounding Byrd’s reports.

    Has no one seen the last interview with Stanley Kubrick just prior to his death? He stated that he helped stage and direct the fake moon landings for help from NASA with his movie of that time, 2001 A Space Odyssey. Anyone ever read Bill Kayoing’s book, We Never Went To The Moon? Empirical evidence that none of it ever happened. Many of us have known about this for years.

    If “we” (the US) never landed a man on the moon then that is an enormous hoot, but I find it hard to believe. There were so many people involved – or not involved as the case may be – that I can’t imagine how such a conspiracy could have lasted this long. The astronauts themselves are the most primary source and I’ve never even heard of them denying or even keeping mum about their adventures. Besides that, there wasn’t just one mission (Apollo 11), there were six and 12 different astronauts involved over a 41 month period. That’s an awful lot of things to fake and control, especially after this long.

      The old saying goes! ‘Every man has his price’. I was a young kid in 69 and watched the moon landing, believed it then. As I’ve gotten older. I now know, I can be fooled, and that ‘Bisses me off’. At this time in history, everything is possible. Whether its truth or falsehood, it is possible!!!

      You should go see the YouTube Videos by people who tried to get these AstroNOTS to swear on the Bible That they went to the Moon & They ALL refused.

    There are reports that the managers of the Louvre Museum, responding to shortages of artists’ canvas, have agreed to take down their vast collection and have the paint scrubbed off in order to provide blank canvases for future use.

  • You really know where the buttons are – and exactly how to press them! With this post you may have gained even more credibility overall – and probably an even wider audience. You have actually managed to surprise this old reader.

    • Thanks. Notice the memes and then fit them together …

  • John

    Well at least someone knows the truth about the supposed moon landings. But who? Why would anyone want to re-kindle that story. And Antarctica will NEVER be explored because then they would have to tell us the truth about that as well. You can find both stories here ItsHisStory.com/globe

    “Why on earth would NASA destroy what may be the single-most important
    document in the history of mankind? Such actions are part of what fuel
    suspicion about NASA and the space program generally.”

    Because BOTH NASA & The CIA Were CREATED After America Brought Hundreds Of The NAZI SS Scientists & Intelligence Officers Here After WW2.

    Most Americans Have Been DUMBED Down Thru The Educational System & The BOOB TUBE TV Programming.

    Byrd Was Involved With Operation High Jump – Hunt Down Remaining NAZI’s That They Thought Had Escaped. They Came Back Early With Losses in Both Ships, Planes & Men.

    Byrd Said The Final Attack Would Come From Antarctic With Ships That Could Fly From Pole To Pole.

    Our True History Has Been Hid From Us – And It Looks Like The NAZI’s Really Won (Trojan Horse) & It Won’t Be Long Now Before They Reveal Themselves & The BEINGS Aligned With Them.

  • dauden

    Rather than a huge, mineral-rich land beyond the ice, as Byrd suggested, one might find this a bluff to prevent us from the possibility of exploring an ice wall thousands of miles in length encircling a flat earth! This no doubt would cast suspicions on other theoretical constructs such as evolution, the big bang, a sun hundreds of thousands of miles into space, satellites and other hoaxes related to science “falsely so called”. This modern narrative of the world we live in must exclude a Personal Creator in order to allow for a political/spiritual world leader to arise.
