There’s a Space Inside the Moon “Noah’s Ark” and Someone Left It Long Ago
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) categorically rejects suggestions that our Moon is not solid, but initiatives funded by the space agency indicate continued interest in the composition of its interior.
The routine discovery of hundreds of skylights on the lunar surface (holes on the Moon through which cavernous tunnels can be seen) recently led NASA to sponsor the development of robotic mini-rovers designed to capture images and study extraterrestrial crevices.
The authors of a study published in the October 2020 issue of Earth-Science Reviews calculated the size of these massive lunar cavities. The results showed that many of these underground cavities are hundreds of times larger than anything that can be seen on Earth. According to the study’s head, one of the large lunar tunnels “could easily accommodate a small town within its walls”.
Together these events have revived speculation about the Moon’s true composition and internal structure.
The idea that Earth’s closest space neighbor might be empty has had its fair share of adherents over the years.
The modern “hollow moon theory” traces back in part to a book published in 1966 by the eminent astronomer Carl Sagan and Russian astrophysicist IS Shklovsky. His work “Intelligent Life in the Universe” contained a chapter on the curious nature of the moons revolving around Mars – Phobos and Deimos.
According to their calculations these objects had an unusually low density which led them to ask themselves: could they be “hard on the outside but hollow on the inside?”
The authors wondered whether an advanced Martian civilization could have created artificial satellites to function as low-gravity platforms. This orbital arrangement would allow them to launch missions into deep space more easily, an advantage that Earth’s moon also offers.
The grandfather of NASA’s rocket program, Dr. Wernher von Braun unwittingly fueled the Hollow Moon legend by writing an article for Popular Mechanics about the Apollo 13 mission plan to launch the 15-ton portion of a Saturn V rocket to the lunar surface.
This experiment was a continuation of the deliberate fall of the Apollo 12 lunar module, which resulted in the moon “ringing like a bell for nearly an hour, indicating some strange and otherworldly underground structure”.
Even though Apollo 13 didn’t land on the moon they were able to deliver a payload for the experiment with similar results to the previous impact’s lunar jolt.
Mission Control informed the Apollo 13 crew of their success: “Looks like your thruster just hit the moon and it’s wobbling a little.” This suggestive phrase has provided food for theorists who argue that the Moon may be mostly hollow.
Based on Sagan’s earlier reflections on the nature of Martian moons, two Russian scientists, Vasin and Shcherbakov, suggested that the Moon’s features could be resolved with a logical explanation: “The Moon is an artificial hollow object – a satellite that has been specially placed close to our planet by a highly developed extraterrestrial civilization”.
The Soviet duo published their thoughts on the matter in a 1970 article titled “Is the Moon a Creation of Alien Intelligence?”. His circumstantial assumptions about a satellite created by aliens paved the way for what became known as the “Moon Spaceship Hypothesis”.
One of the first to understand this hypothesis was researcher and author Don Wilson. He outlined his hypothesis of an artificial satellite orbiting the Earth in two books – “Our Mysterious Spaceship Moon” (1975) and “Secrets of Our Spaceship Moon” (1979).
Wilson cited anomalies such as shallow lunar craters (the strong hull protecting the lunar craft prevents meteors from penetrating deep) and the presence of strange structures and lights on the surface (evidence of artificial vehicles and navigational markers) as evidence that the Moon was not. . formed naturally.
Inspired by Vasin and Shcherbakov’s “Soviet spacecraft theory”, Wilson agreed that the Moon was an ancient alien spacecraft. This required it to be basically a hollow vehicle – especially considering the size of the intended payload: “The massive spacecraft carried everything needed to serve as a sort of Noah’s Ark for sentient beings on their journey across the universe.”
Interestingly, Wilson mentioned the existence of lunar features that are like skylights. He referred to the work of amateur astronomer Dr. HP Wilkins, who was convinced that “inside the Moon there really are vast hollow regions, perhaps in the form of caves, and which are connected to the surface by huge holes or pits”.
Wilson suggested that these “pits” could be the entrances to “hidden underground bases located inside the Moon”.
Another book, written in the same vein as Wilson, was collected by Christopher Knight and Alan Butler. In the book “Who Built the Moon? ” (2005) the authors note many “unrealistic coincidences” between the Moon, the Sun and the Earth (e.g. the exact dimensions needed by the Moon for a solar eclipse or Earth’s tidal regulation) and insist that our planet’s satellite was created on purpose.
In contrast to Wilson’s conclusion that the Moon was a “cosmic Noah’s Ark” that was brought to its current location from outside our solar system, Butler and Knight suggested that it was fabricated by Earth-based architects using the available elements of the planet. .
It is claimed that this is why tests of materials on the lunar surface have shown their composition to be extremely similar to that of Earth.
As for who owns the plans for the artificial moon, in an interview with New Dawn, Knight elaborated on three possibilities:
“God aliens or humans. The only one that is 100% scientifically possible is the latter. Time travel is generally accepted as physically possible and several scientists are close to sending matter into the past. We can assume that in the future machines could be created that could be sent back to remove matter from the young Earth for the construction of the Moon – perhaps using mini black hole technology.”
Some of the mysteries surrounding the formation of the Moon could eventually be answered by investing in robust autonomous robots. New rovers are being developed specifically for the underground exploration of dark lunar crevices. Today’s prototypes are able to come out of gaping alien mouths and are equipped with high-resolution imaging equipment.
One of the advanced models was tested in a crater in Utah in preparation for a future moon survey. The unmanned lunar module named by its creators at Carnegie Mellon University PitRanger, is designed to collect photos of the funnel from various angles and get a complete picture of the situation on Earth.
Gaining a more detailed understanding of these subterranean portals can greatly expand our understanding of the workings of the Moon. With any luck some of these rovers could be deployed as early as 2022 and should be seriously considered as part of NASA’s Artemis lunar missions.
It may not be a hollow ancient alien spacecraft but the origin of the moon is still unclear from a scientific point of view. It makes sense that a concerted effort is being made to send vehicles to explore underground tunnels on the Moon, not only because of their base-building value, but also because of the treasure trove of data they likely have on how bodies formed on the Moon. Moon.
If the lunar tunnels to be explored soon extend far below the surface, they could help explain some of the moon’s oft-cited anomalies and provide access to secrets buried beneath the regolith.
As evidenced by the increased interest in robots capable of penetrating sublunar cavities and lunar exploration, even if hollow moon theories do not excite NASA officials, they do generate interest.
