The Apollo missions, one of which led to Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s iconic first landing, are some of the most profound accomplishments of mankind. The missions’ successes were heralded as a new era for space exploration and a harbinger of our civilization’s technological evolution. But there are several strange rumors and questionable transcripts of events that occurred during the missions, which NASA and its astronauts have responded to dismissively. This came to be known as the Apollo 11 conspiracy.

While many are still skeptical of the landings, there are other strange reports that have roused conspiracies about unexplained phenomena experienced by Apollo astronauts, including reports of a base on the dark side of the moon. These theories are fueled by transcripts that have only been declassified within the past decade, or from NASA having “lost” documents and recordings of the original lunar landing. Whether there is any validity to these theories is up for debate, but some are so intriguing they can’t be ignored.

What Did Neil Armstrong Discover on the Moon?

According to NASA, Armstrong and Aldrin wandered the moon for three hours, conducting experiments and collecting moon rocks. They also planted the U.S. flag and a sign to mark their landing, claiming their visit a peaceful mission for all mankind.

Aliens on the Moon

What’s on the Dark Side of the Moon?

According to NASA, the dark side of the moon is filled with significantly more craters and less of the smooth, dark mare we normally see. The terrain is rough chaotic compared to the side we’re familiar with, seen in images from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

However, accounts from former military intelligence officials have claimed there is more on the dark side of the moon than NASA is letting on. Karl Wolfe, a technician at the Air Force Tactical Air Command headquarters in Langley, Virginia, analyzed data from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, claiming he and his colleagues viewed artificial structures on the dark side of the moon, including radar antennas and structures made by intelligent beings.

Others have claimed to discover underground tunnels in images captured by India’s Chandrayaan-1 lunar orbiter. These tunnels on the dark side were likely the product of tubes of lava flow that created a massive system of caves, potentially inhabited by living beings.

Apollo 11 UFO Sightings

There are a few bizarre accounts of the crew having potentially experienced UFOs and an extraterrestrial presence during the Apollo 11 mission. One of these instances occurred on the last day of approach to the moon, which Aldrin, Armstrong, and Michael Collins have recounted. The two astronauts spotted what they, at first, assumed to be a stage of the Saturn V rocket, called the S-IVB. When they called to Houston to ask if that was the case, Houston told them that the S-IVB had been detached a while ago and was 6,000 miles away.

Although Armstrong said it was just far enough away that he couldn’t make out the object’s shape, the other astronauts debated whether it was shaped like a cylinder or an L-shaped, open book.

Another strange report claims to be a transcript between Armstrong and Aldrin witnessing extraterrestrial spacecraft and structures once they exited the lunar module, Eagle. The transcript is as follows:

Apollo 11: “Those are giant things. No, no, no, this is not an optical illusion. No one is going to believe this.”

NASA: “What… what…. what? What the hell is happening?” “What’s wrong with you?”

Apollo 11: “They’re here, under the surface.”

NASA: “What’s there? (muffled noise) Emission interrupted; interference control calling Apollo 11.”

Apollo 11: “We saw some visitors. They were here for a while, observing the instruments.”

NASA: “Repeat your last information.”

Apollo 11: “I say that there were other spaceships. They’re lined up in the other side of the crater.”

Apollo 11: “Let us sound this orbita… in 625 to 5… automatic relay connected… my hands are shaking so badly I can’t do anything. Film it? God if these damned cameras have picked up anything – what then?”

NASA: “Have you picked up anything?”

Apollo 11: “I didn’t have any film at hand. Three shots of the saucers, or whatever they were that were ruining the film.”

NASA: “Control, control here. Are you on your way? What is the uproar with the UFOs over?

Apollo 11: “They’ve landed there. There they are and they’re watching us.

NASA: “The mirrors, the mirrors – have you set them up?”

Apollo 11: “Yes, they’re in the right place. But whoever made those spaceships surely can come tomorrow and remove them. Over and out.”

 

Apollo 11 Conspiracy

What makes this exchange seem like it could be fabricated is that in the official transcripts between NASA and the Apollo astronauts, NASA is always referred to as Houston, not Mission Control. Although, what is intriguing about this supposed account is that there were two minutes of video and radio silence when Armstrong and Aldrin left the lunar module. The cameras and recording that failed were some of the most expensive and highly advanced equipment, which produced reliable recordings throughout the rest of the mission. These two minutes were also purportedly censored to civilians on Earth who were tuned in with VHF radio equipment.

Neil Armstrong is said to have disclosed his account of what he and Aldrin saw to an unnamed professor during a NASA symposium.

Professor: What really happened out there with Apollo 11?

Armstrong: It was incredible … of course, we had always known there was a possibility … the fact is, we were warned off. There was never any questions then of a space station or a moon city.

Professor: How do you mean “warned off”?

Armstrong: I can’t go into details, except to say that their ships were far superior to ours both in size and technology – boy, where they big! … and menacing …. No, there is no question of a space station.

Professor: But NASA had other missions after Apollo 11?

Armstrong: Naturally – NASA was committed at that time, and couldn’t risk a panic on earth…. But it really was a quick scoop and back again.

Did the astronauts really encounter alien spacecraft or see a base on the dark side of the moon? Is there any legitimacy to these transcripts? While it’s difficult to tell whether these conversations actually happened with the anonymous sources and classified information, one thing that stands out is the fact that NASA “lost” a significant amount of high quality, slow-scan television footage that was made as backup for television broadcast. One might ask how the most technologically advanced space program in the world managed to launch a rocket, putting men on the moon and somehow just misplaced footage of it.

Eerie Whistling Music on The Dark Side of The Moon

During the Apollo 10 mission that was the antecedent to Aldrin and Armstrong’s moonwalk, two astronauts orbited the moon and reported hearing some odd sounds. While losing contact with Houston on the far side of the moon, a crew of astronauts aboard Apollo 10 reported hearing eerie whistling sounds that they referred to as space music. One astronaut, Eugene Cernan, even speculated as to whether they should tell Houston what they heard.

LMP: That music even sounds outer-spacey, doesn’t it? You hear that? That whistling sound?

CDR: Yes.

LMP: Whooooooo. Say your – –

CMP: Did you hear that whistling sound, too?

LMP: Yes. Sounds like – you know, outer-space-type music.

CMP: I wonder what it is.

LMP: Hey, Tom. Is your – is your insulation all burned off here, on the front side of your window over here? Right – –

CDR: Yes.

LMP: Mine’s all burned off. Isn’t that weird – eerie, John?

CMP: Yes, I got it, too …. and see who was outside.

LMP: Boy, that sure is weird music.

CMP: We’re going to have to find out about that. Nobody will believe us.

LMP: Yes. It’s a whistling, you know, like an outer- space-type thing.

One explanation that tries to shed some scientific light onto what the astronauts may have heard, is that it was the product of radio waves interacting with the magnetic field of the moon. A similar sound was picked up and recorded recently by the Cassini spacecraft when it was orbiting Saturn. The only problem is that the moon doesn’t have a magnetic field like planets do. The scientific retort was that if it wasn’t radio waves reacting with magnetic fields from the moon, then it was simply interference between VHF radios between the two Apollo 10 vehicles. But wouldn’t the astronauts have experienced that frequently before?

These transcripts are among several other accounts of astronauts in the Apollo program experiencing strange phenomena. And while NASA offers seemingly plausible explanations for many of them, there is an underlying perception that the whole story is not being told. With tapes of what’s arguably humanity’s most important moment being lost, transcripts being classified, and bizarre firsthand accounts from astronauts themselves, it seems that there could be much more to be disclosed.

Are Humans Being Recruited for Breakaway Civilizations?

Did you ever wake up in the morning and feel like something was off-kilter? Perhaps you were worried about finances or visiting in-laws. However, if you were a breakaway civilization recruit your waking moments might be more like this:

You feel like you were asleep forever, but the clock says it is just a few hours later than when you went to bed. Maybe you just had an incredibly long and detailed dream. After several flashbacks or moments of déjà vu, you recall that you were a member of a Secret Space Program (SSP) and spent years living on Mars as part of a human colony. You remember stopping by the moon for a short time when going to or coming from Mars.

People are recruited for these colonies, known as breakaway civilizations when their particular skills are needed in a new civilization. Explore how breakaway civilizations may be essential for the future of humanity and potential recruitment criteria for colonists.

Breakaway Civilizations; An Off-Planet Solution?

In the early 1940s, President Franklin D. Roosevelt became concerned that a catastrophic event would require the movement of large masses of people away from areas of destruction. The problem became more dangerous when FDR discovered there was no one place on the planet that could accommodate such large groups. He even explored the idea of digging tunnels and underground shelters. These plans seemed unworkable, so he explored the idea of developing off-planet solutions, like establishing colonies on the Moon, Mars, or Venus.

Hackers Uncover Evidence of Breakaway Civilizations

There is strong evidence that breakaway civilizations have existed on the moon and Mars for many years. Two independent computer hackers accessed government computers and found reports indicating there were colonies on the moon and Mars. One hacker, Matthew Bevan, accessed the files in the early 1990s. The other one, Gary McKinnon, accessed records in the early 2000s.

Breakaway Civilizations: Recruitment

There are three recruitment categories for Breakaway Civilizations:

  1. Some recruits are made
  2. Some recruits are asked
  3. Some recruits are taken

The stories some tell of their time in the SSP are convincing. In “Inside the Program,” Randy Cramer tells an incredible life story of having spent 17 years on Mars and three years on the moon. He completed his military service in the SSP as a Marine Captain. Other men such as Corey Goode have come forward as whistleblowers of the Secret Space Program who all tell similar stories of the time they also spent time on the moon and Mars. How does the recruitment process work?

1. SOME ARE MADE

Randy Cramer believes he was designated to be part of the SSP and go to Mars prior to his birth. He had no choice and was predestined to be a Breakaway Civilization participant.

2. SOME ARE ASKED

Laura Magdalene Eisenhower, great-granddaughter of President Eisenhower, has shared her experiences of being actively recruited to go to Mars. Eisenhower felt she had been targeted before she was born, but it wasn’t until she was a single mother with twin boys that she was asked. She turned down the “opportunity,” but she has provided details of the attempt that was made to get her to join the project.

3. SOME ARE TAKEN

David Paulides heads a group of retired police officers and others who are experienced Search and Rescue experts (SAR). Their mission is to investigate the thousands of reports every year of missing persons. Paulides documents the mysterious disappearances of people around the world. He says these people are “brilliant scholars, athletes and stellar people.” They suddenly disappear under questionable circumstances.

Development of Technology Supports The Existence of Breakaway Civilizations

There is evidence that technology for space travel now allows people to travel from Earth to the moon or Mars without traversing the distance between the places. This technology involves teleportation or some type of secret portal. When you consider all the advancements that have been made in technology that we use in our daily lives, it makes sense that similar advances would be made in the technology used for space travel.

We have gone from fax machines to scanners and email. From landlines to cell phones. We have gone from the original computer that was the size of a large closet to handheld devices with many more available functions. So, isn’t it possible that space travel technology would also experience such advancements, including how to travel in space by teleportation through portals or some other equally fast way?

Mind Control Devices: Project MK-Ultra

The CIA is known for several mind control programs. Project MKUltra, a secret CIA project designed to test the effect of drugs on humans, was conducted on unwitting subjects from 1953 to 1964. During the program, experimenters gave test subjects drugs that caused them to have hallucinations and other adverse reactions. Other drugs erased memories of time and events.

In 1976, the U.S. Senate investigated the MKUltra program. Senators were shocked by some of their discoveries. For example, Congress learned that the secret program was designed to discover drugs that could help people “withstand privation, torture and coercion during interrogation and so-called brain-washing” and other drugs “which will produce amnesia for events preceding and during their use.”

Using these drugs, along with technology learned from aliens, explains why Randy Cramer and the other whistleblowers would at first have no recollection of their trip. Other drugs to reverse memory loss along with therapy allowed them to recover their memories. Some people view the concept of breakaway civilizations as a “pipe dream” shared by a few folks who are trying to bask in their 15 minutes of fame by telling their incredible stories of life on Mars.
