Not long ago, a spokesman for Russia’s government Investigative Committee called for an official investigation into the United States moon landings. His name is Vladimir Markin, and he argued that such an investigation could bring to light what’s been kept in the dark for a number of years with regards to these trips into outer space.
No, it’s not whether or not they went to the moon, but instead regarding the disappearance of film footage from the original moon landing in 1969. They are also referring to approximately 400 kilograms of lunar rock that was obtained during multiple missions between 1969 to 1972.
Why a mainstream media outlet like the Washington Post would title an article “Russian official wants to investigate whether U.S. moon landings actually happened ” is curious, to say the least, because that’s misleading and not at all what the Russian government called for. (source)
“We are not contending that they did not fly (to the moon), and simply made a film about it. But all of these scientific – or perhaps cultural – artefacts are part of the legacy of humanity, and their disappearance without a trace is our common loss. An investigation will reveal what happened.” – Vladimir Markin (source)
It’s important to note that NASA did admit t0 censoring the original recordings of the first moon landings, and erased a lot of film footage. Despite this, they also said that they had managed to remaster the original television broadcast of the landing. They also released more photos of the Apollo missions a few years ago.
What Really Happened Out There?
According to Bob Dean, United States Army Command Sargent Major, who also served at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) of NATO as an intelligence analyst, there is more footage that has been erased and hidden than we’ve not been told about:
“Ladies and gentlemen, my government, NASA, which many of us in the United States say stands for Never A Straight Answer, proceeded to erase 40 rolls of film of the Apollo Program — the flight to the Moon, the flight around the Moon, the landings on the Moon, the walking guys here and there. They erased, for Christ’s sake, 40 rolls of film of those events. Now we’re talking about several thousand individual frames that were taken that the so-called authorities determined that you did not have a right to see. Oh, they were ‘disruptive,’ ‘socially unacceptable,’ ‘politically unacceptable.’ I’ve become furious. I’m a retired Command Sergeant Major. I was never famous for having a lot of patience.” (source)
There is definitely no lack of mystery when it comes to the moon landings, and this investigation adds fuel to teh flame. A lot of this has been sparked by NASA astronauts themselves who have made some remarkable claims. There are so many statements from so many astronauts it’s really hard to pick the best ones.
For example, here is a great one from the 6th man to walk on the moon,
“I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomenon is real, although it’s been covered up by governments for quite a long time. Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered. We are not alone, they have been coming here for a long time.” – Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Lunar Module Pilot of Apollo 14 (source)(source)(source)(source)
When it comes to the moon, some strange claims have been made on this side of the pond. For example,
Dr. John Brandenburg, the Deputy Manager of the Clementine Mission to the Moon, which was part of a joint space project between the Ballistic Missile Defence Organization (BMDO) and NASA, the mission discovered water at the Moon’s poles in 1994, stated that,
[The Clementine Mission was] a photo reconnaissance mission basically to check out if someone was building bases on the moon that we didn’t know about. Were they expanding they expanding them? . . . Of all the pictures I’ve seen from the moon that show possible structures, the most impressive is a picture of a miles wide recto-linear structure. This looked unmistakably artificial, and it shouldn’t be there. As somebody in the space defence community, I look on any such structure on the moon with great concern because it isn’t ours, there’s no way we could have built such a thing. It means someone else is up there.(Source: page 16 of 18)(source)(source)
General Albert Stubblebine, a retired United States Major General, the Commanding General of the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM), and a former chief of U.S. Army Intelligence, has made similar claims:
There are structures on the surface of Mars. I will tell you for the record that there are structures underneath the surface of Mars that cannot be seen by the Voyager cameras that went by in 1976. I will also tell you that there are machines on the surface of Mars and there are machines under the surface of Mars that you can look at, you can find out in detail, you can see what they are, where they are, who they are and a lot of detail about them.
These are a few examples of many. We just wanted to illustrate why there is a lot of controversy surrounding the official story behind the moon landings. We do believe we went to the moon, but, again, the official story is questionable in our opinion.
