The year was 1969. You could buy a house for about $15,000. The average cost of rent was $135 a month. A new Toyota would set you back just under $2,000. It was also the year of Woodstock and the start of Richard Nixon’s presidency. And, yes. It was the year that the first man walked on the moon.
The entire nation watched mesmerized as NASA broadcast the Apollo 11 lunar landing to all three television networks. Neil Armstrong lowered the module to the surface of the moon proclaiming to the world, “The Eagle has landed.”
Armstrong slowly climbed down the ladder and set foot on the surface of the moon, as he announced, “One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” Buzz Aldrin followed him, just a few steps behind.
The first two men ever to walk on the moon bounced, walked and traversed across the surface, taking pictures and reporting back to Earth as they went. They planted a U.S. flag for all the world to see and to symbolize achieving what was once thought impossible.
Meanwhile, their companion Michael Collins stayed in the Command Module and orbited the moon until Armstrong and Aldrin were ready to be picked up. It was a historic event. Is there more to the story? What did Armstrong and Aldrin see? What did they say that was preempted out of the national broadcast? Has NASA kept secrets from the public about extraterrestrial life and aliens on the moon?
Flashback: The 1960 Brookings Report
NASA commissioned the Brookings Research Institute in Washington to prepare a report on the likelihood of encountering extraterrestrial life and to detail how NASA UFO sightings should be handled. The final 219-page report, published in 1960, was titled “Proposed Studies on the Implications of Peaceful Space Activities for Human Affairs.” One section was dedicated to the “Implications of a Discovery of Extraterrestrial Life.” The study is now referred to simply as “The Brookings Report.”
The report predicted that if extraterrestrial life were discovered, it could bring about “profound changes, or even the collapse of our civilization.” The report noted that such a discovery could come about at any time, and that any admission of UFO activity could incite fear in the public. It suggested that evidence of alien existence might be found in artifacts left on the moon or other planets.
The Brookings Report made no specific recommendations to NASA about continuing secrecy around UFOs and extraterrestrials. In one sense, it suggested that the public would be “less shocked” if the information was revealed. On the other hand, the report concluded that more studies needed to be done in order to determine how the public would respond “emotionally and intelligently” to the discovery of “intelligent extraterrestrial life.”
The report questioned whether the public should be told about any encounters, or whether the information should be “withheld from the public for what ends.”
This report may have influenced NASA to continue its policy of secrecy and hide from the public a conversation involving NASA, Armstrong and Aldrin, as the two astronauts stepped foot on the moon’s surface.
Apollo 11 Conspiracy: Armstrong, Aldrin, and Signs of UFOs and Extraterrestrials on the Moon
The first two minutes of the official transmission of Aldrin and Armstrong’s first steps on the moon are silent. NASA officials claimed a TV camera malfunctioned and destroyed the audio; however, others beg to differ. Those who were there at mission command, as well as radio operators who heard the transmission, both agree that the sound was not obliterated. It was covered up by NASA, in what many later called the Apollo 11 Conspiracy.
Armstrong and Aldrin actually reported that “We saw some visitors…they were there for a while…there were other spaceships…they’ve landed there and they’re watching us.”
NASA tried to keep this transmission secret and denied it ever occurred. Since then, a number of people who were at mission control at the time have written their own accounts of what they saw and what they heard. Is NASA now slowly releasing some of the information? If so, why? Is danger approaching?
NASA’s Emergency Preparedness Video: Who Are ‘Off-Planet People?’
On June 13, 2011, NASA's administrator Charles Bolden sent out an emergency preparedness video to NASA employees. Although he discussed the need to be prepared for any emergency, he emphasized that NASA has the responsibility for the lives of people “not only here on Earth, but off this planet.” He did not elaborate on the latter part of this statement.
He also did not give details about the type of emergency under consideration. Was he referring to something natural, like an earthquake or hurricane, or a deliberate act against the country like the one that occurred on 9/11? Some experts believe that this is just one of many hints NASA is giving to indicate that there is more going on in the universe that what is being disclosed to the public.
Another subtle indication of intelligent extraterrestrial life is NASA’s release of photos that show alarming structures on both the moon and Mars that are clearly not natural formations. Experts conclude that such structures could only be built by intelligent life.
Photo Analysis by United Family of Anomaly Hunters
According to its “About” page, the United Family of Anomaly Hunters (UFAH) ) is a non-profit organization “with active members around the world.” They go on to say their “sole purpose is to help bring disclosure to the citizens of the Earth about past and current civilizations on planets and moons in our solar system.” They primarily focus on Mars because it has the most data to work with, but they still investigate anomalies in our entire solar system.
To date, UFAH has cataloged about 58,000 photos, all showing some type of anomaly.
The collection has come from the archives of NASA and from the archives of both the European and Indian Space Agencies. The photos present compelling evidence that structures exist on Mars and the moon that could only have been built by intelligent life.
Photos and Hollywood Films: Clues About Extraterrestrial Life
NASA has occasionally inadvertently revealed these extraterrestrial-made structures. In 2015, the organization published photos of the Chinese lunar landing. Somehow, a picture of an old Apollo mission from nearly 50 years ago was included in the mix. Some believe that, upon close analysis of the photo, you can see a non-human made structure.
Recently, on September 12, 2016, NASA released images of Mars from what is known as the Murray Buttes region. Some photos show Mars with a bluer sky than previously documented. Blue sky indicates the presence of oxygen, which may, as some have previously said, make it possible for humans to breathe there without the assistance of oxygen transported from Earth.
In addition, researchers have concluded that NASA works with Hollywood to slowly release information about secret space programs. Famous directors, producers and filmmakers are believed to be associated with extraterrestrials. The films inoculate humans to the reality of their existence.
Electromagnetic Propulsion Drive: Future of Space Travel
We may be able to discover the truth about extraterrestrial life sooner rather than later, as traveling to Mars becomes more and more of a possibility.
The September 6, 2016 issue of ScienceAlert announced that the Electromagnetic (EM) Drive would be launched into space within six months. This is an engine that defies Newton’s fundamental laws of physics: “To each action there’s an equal and opposite reaction.” The EM propulsion drive has no propellant. Where did this technology come from? Could it have been relayed to us by extraterrestrials?
The implications are “huge.” The EM drive has passed peer review and, if it works, a trip to Mars would only take 70 days. While more work needs to be done, it is expected to be ready to go soon. China is also working on the EM drive, making this venture a sort of modern-day space race.
Full Disclosure from NASA?
When the Brookings Report was published more than 50 years ago, the world was a very different place. Space exploration technology was still in its early phases, and the prospect of sending humans to the moon was still a dream.
A lot has changed since 1960. Three countries have landed on the moon, an internal space station orbits our planet and the U.S landed a rover on Mars.
But we still need more information, especially beyond NASA's scope, and the Brookings Report is long overdue for a revisit. Learn more about how NASA impacts our understanding of outer space.
