Dear Enterprise Mission family, and interested new friends:
Lunar ruins? Intelligent artifacts? Deep mysteries? Impenetrable secrets? The work of inscrutable forces we may never understand? NASA cover-ups to suppress the truth... until the public is ready?
Are there really large, nearly-invisible glass objects hiding in the background of some classic NASA shots from the Apollo missions?
On Tuesday, October 30, 2007, we discussed just that... at the National Press Club in Washington, DC!
Clearly, the word is getting out -- and people are paying attention.
SHOW ME THE MONEY...
The next question everyone asks is "Where's the beef?" -- to paraphrase another American corporate cliche'. Bear in mind that there is no one single staggering, definitive picture that drops everyone in their tracks. Our evidence suggests that NASA has tried to ensure that none would get out.
What we do have, though, are some compelling possibilities. At the very least, if you follow this article all the way through, you will end up seeing very clear examples of image tampering that our colleagues in Russia independently discovered.
Here is one intriguing case that escaped NASA's censorship... brought to new life thanks to simple Photoshop techniques to enhance brightness and contrast.
The mass you see in the above images is not caused by a lens flare. The astronaut's shadow in the first three images shows that the sun is coming in at a right angle to the camera axis -- thus eliminating the potential for such a mundane explanation.
Lens flares require the light source to be either in-frame or directly outside of it in order to illuminate the camera lens. In this case, it is impossible to illuminate the lens, due to the right-angle offset position of the sun.
Now let's take a closer look at the top two frames of our comparison:
The top left shot, seen here once again, is an original print -- saved from destruction by our senior Enterprise Mission correspondent Dr. Ken Johnston.
The top right image is an enhancement of Dr. Johnston's 'rescued' print -- lightened and contrast-enhanced -- showing what you find buried in the emulsion of the black layers of the supposedly airless lunar sky.
Three vertical geometric 'pillars' seem to appear in the middle of the enhanced image, as well as a clearly obvious 'crossbar' up near the top.
Now let's go back to the bottom half of our original comparison shot:
The bottom left image is an enhanced version of the previous shot... only this time it's taken from NASA's own version of the 40-year-old photograph, currently posted on official NASA websites.
As you can see, the detail has been sharply diminished. The formerly blue 'comet-like' feature now seems red, due to a long-term degradation in the emulsion of the photograph. The stunningly regular geometry is also muted, leaving only the horizontal 'crossbar' as a sharp geometric figure.
The image on the bottom right is where all the magic is.
This is from an entirely different photograph, taken from an entirely different angle!
This image was recorded when Alan Shepard walked around, behind the LEM, and took another Hasselblad image looking north.
This image also can be found -- currently -- on official NASA websites!
Our next comparison shot, below, features the original of the newly-discovered photo on the left -- as well as our enhanced version on the right.
You can see one leg of the descent stage of the lunar module, as Shepard now stands east of the landed spacecraft, looking north. This same leg gets washed out when we enhance the image on the right:
Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the astronaut, is no longer in the shot. He is now out of frame, off to the left. However, the towering glass-like ruins are still arching overhead, far to the north of the landed spacecraft. The 'crossbar', and another horizontal feature below it, are both perfectly visible -- again -- in the exact same places!
These unimaginably specific geometric details are preserved between the two photographs. Two independent records -- both part of the official NASA archive -- both show the same extraordinary objects, standing miles above the Moon!
Yet, the foreground between the two images is totally different. One has an astronaut in it, and one features the leg of the lunar module.
Just to help you visualize this with a physical example, here are two different shots of the Washington Monument, showing two different views in the foreground while the towering spire is clearly visible in the background:
Now imagine the Monument was made entirely of crystal-clear glass. It would blind you at the wrong angle, and at night it would be hard to see it at all.
Since the Moon does not have an atmosphere, a towering glass version of the Washington Monument would be difficult to see even under the best of conditions.
NASA may have taken the game a step further, and deliberately increased the blackness of the background in order to obscure any remaining traces of the glass.
However, this trick was done 40 years ago... long before someone could have imagined the advances that modern digital photo enhancement could create!
As such, these images are a stunning official confirmation of our entire Lunar dome hypothesis. You can go and find these images -- the frame numbers listed above -- on the official NASA websites, or the image DVDs they have been selling all over the world, and perform the work yourself.
THE LINKS, PLEASE...
Just to make it simple, here is the link to the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal, where these images can be found.
The "nasa.gov" in the link clearly establishes this as an official government resource:
Here is a direct link to NASA's version of the first image in our comparison -- the degraded 'official' example of the same shot Dr. Johnston preserved:
Here is a direct link to the last image in our comparision -- showing the same startlingly impossible geometry from an entirely different vantage point on the lunar surface:
Even if this were our only example, it could change the world. However, we have uncovered many startling examples just like this!
The world is finally paying attention -- and contributing their own findings to this growing body of research, as you are about to see!
2001: JUST A WORK OF FICTION? OR...
Our journey may have started with Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke, back in 1968. Was '2001' only a work of fiction?
Present the truth as a sci-fi story and you have 'plausible deniability'... while also whetting the public's appetite and imagination for the idea that there could be "something" out there, waiting to be found.
Or, perhaps we already did find it... and have just been waiting for the right moment to reveal it publicly, without creating socio-economic chaos:
[Scene from Clarke / Kubrick's "2001", featuring rectangular "Monolith" found in a lunar crater]
'2001' also suggested that corresponding anomalies may be found on Earth, dating back to the dawn of humankind as we now know it:
Kubrick made a huge breakthrough in filmmaking with '2001' -- redefining the state-of-the-art in storytelling and special effects for its time.
Now, nearly 40 years later, fact is meeting fiction. The push for a real, non-fiction disclosure has taken a quantum leap forward with our publication of "Dark Mission" -- a comprehensive exploration of the truth behind the mysteries:
Once standing like the mighty Monolith itself, the first of potentially millions of looming dominoes has now fallen.
The fallout is likely to change the face of the Earth as we know it... and more importantly, that of the Moon.
* * *
If insiders are holding back the truth, you are in control of how much longer the game will go on. All the evidence in the world means nothing if no one pays attention.
Given that Dark Mission is having explosive sales growth, rocketing up to the mid-20s range of all books available for sale on Amazon.com (with a very impressive announcement pending early next week...) your voice is being heard.
And you will not be ignored much longer.
NASA TRIES TO STOP THE BLEEDING... AND OPENS NEW WOUNDS
On Tuesday, October 30, 2007, Dr. Ken Johnston -- former Manager of NASA's Data and Photo Control Department during the Apollo program -- presented breakthrough evidence with me at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
Here are links for two mainstream media announcements of our event to the international press -- hosted by Cheryll Jones, former network news anchor for CNN:
Dr. Johnston was ordered to destroy key Apollo lunar images and data in 1971... soon after the release of '2001'... rather than to preserve them for academic and public study.
Johnston testified how he disobeyed these NASA orders, and secretly saved the critical Apollo images—and the never-officially-published lunar discoveries recorded on them.
According to AP, NASA is currently embroiled in a similar controversy with Congress. The agency was planning to suppress a recent study into aviation safety, and destroy the data.
However, due to overwhelming public pressure, NASA administrator Michael Griffin just this week rescinded both these orders; the study will be made public before the end of the year, according to Griffin -- and the data carefully preserved.
Our room in the National Press Club was built to comfortably hold 40 people -- but that day it was packed to the bursting point.
We were surrounded by a wall-to-wall throng of both domestic and international media, their microphones and cameras whirring. Here's a picture from the front end of the crush:
The stakes were high. Exactly one week beforehand, Johnston was abruptly terminated from JPL's prestigious "Solar System Ambassador" program. His four-year history with the program was duly 'sanitized' from the official JPL SSA website.
The reason? Kay Ferrari, the program director, told Dr. Johnston it was because he was “quoted [as] criticizing NASA in Hoagland’s new book, ‘Dark Mission’”.
Her tip-off came from James Oberg, a former NASA contractor now working for NBC News. Oberg was a colleague of Johnston’s at NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center during the Apollo Program in the 1970’s.
Kay Ferrari said Oberg raised “serious issues regarding Johnston’s credentials” and his “crackpot accusations” against the agency. And just like that, Dr. Johnston's career was ended.
A week later, we presented Johnson's real NASA history, and allowed the international media to decide just how 'crackpot' his story really was.
The silence from our American print, online and broadcast media has been deafening, but not unexpected.
The explosion of interest from our Russian friends, however, has exceeded all our expectations.
FALSE STARTS AND 'NEGATIVE GREETINGS' CONFOUND AMERICAN MEDIA EFFORTS
To be fair, a number of mainstream American press entities -- such as the Washington Post -- did show up. They didn't actually write anything, but they were obviously curious.
NBC Nightly News wanted to interview Ken and me for their evening network news broadcast. Unfortunately, they wanted to conduct the interview on MONDAY night, BEFORE the Tuesday press briefing.
One problem... we were literally sealed up in an aluminum tube, helplessly suspended tens of thousands of feet above the Earth's surface... headed from Albuquerque to Washington... during the very time they wanted us!
So obviously, that didn't happen.
AN EXPLOSION OF PUBLICITY IN RUSSIAN MEDIA
The REAL coverage of our event, and our anomalous images from the Moon, was NOT here in the United States -- but in RUSSIA!
FOUR of the major Russian television networks (including TASS) turned up at the Press Club Tuesday morning, and taped the entire two hours!
All four networks are running extensive pieces all over the old Soviet Union now. We will eventually obtain this coverage on DVD, as well as their raw footage -- and will make some of it available to all of you.
This is something American networks NEVER intend for you to see in the mainstream, as you have probably now guessed.
One Russian network -- "RTTV America Inc." -- is the Russian equivalent of CNN.
RTTV did a THREE-HOUR private interview with Dr. Johnston and me that evening in their downtown Washington studios on K street. Their offices are in the AP building -- the Washington headquarters of the Associated Press.
They will edit this down to "a 20 or 30-minute piece," according to the producer and the correspondent who interviewed us. They tell us it will air "roughly a dozen times on Russian television over the course of one day."
What day, you ask? According to our current information, the Russian piece will air when the Space Shuttle touches down some time next week.
All our Russian correspondents and producers are FASCINATED
by our revelations regarding "Kennedy, Khrushchev... and Apollo."
PUTIN' NASA IN ITS PLACE
The key question, of course, centers around Vladimir Putin, the current Russian president. Putin recently declared he is sending Russia to the Moon.
He offered the United States to jointly participate in the mission... but the Bush Administration turned him down.
Given Putin's strong pressure to not only reach the Moon, but establish a permanent Russian outpost there, the explosion of Russian television and media coverage of our press conference on Tuesday might not exactly be a "coincidence".
Let's not forget that Bush has already
anounced, in 2004, a "new Vision" for Americans to do exactly
the same thing.
LIST OF RUSSIAN MAINSTREAM MEDIA LINKS
Unfortunately, the available translation utilities do a dreadfully poor job, but as you peruse these links you can see for yourself that our explosive NASA story is catching on like a wildfire in Russia.
This first link is from Pravda, considered a less-credible Russian media outlet, but it happens to be the only coverage we've seen so far in English:
Here are some links, in Russian, from their mainstream media that you also can peruse:
Our next link from the Russian CNews R&D includes a detailed Russian photographic analysis of some of the new images. If you only click on one link in this article, this is the one.
They have independently gone back to NASA photographs -- located on official NASA websites -- and revealed the strange anomalies that appear when you enhance the images.
The most provocative enhancement was discovered by the Russians themselves... from an image directly off the "Great Images in NASA" (GRIN) website, which first went online Feb. 2nd, 2001... Groundhog Day:
The original, high-bandwidth download can be found at http://grin.hq.nasa.gov/IMAGES/LARGE/GPN-2000-001137.jpg -- and it shows what appears to be very clear evidence of air-brush tampering to obscure some sort of lunar anomaly behind the astronaut.
The original just has an innocuous-looking black background, but when the Russians did a simple enhancement, the result was much, much stranger:
This is just one of three new examples dug up by the Russians.
The second example shows what appears to be another primitive NASA technique for "doctoring" an image to hide unwanted features. At this time, you can still download a super-hi-res version of it at http://grin.hq.nasa.gov/IMAGES/MEDIUM/GPN-2000-001131.jpg.
Rather than an airbrush, a simple enhancement seems to show razor-blade marks from a strip of the picture that was sliced and pasted three times in a row, directly over something NASA doesn't want you to see:
Young Internet mavericks should remember... this was 40 years ago, long before Photoshop.
Anyone doing print layout work got very good at using a razor blade to quite literally slice a desired image out of its background in the source photograph. You physically remove the piece you want, and throw away the rest of the print.
Look at old magazines or movie posters and you can see how the lines around someone's hair are too smooth and clean -- due to the action of the razor blade. It took a great hand to make those curves come out so natural-looking:
Therefore, such a 'cutout' technique would be one of several quick-and-dirty methods of editing anomalies out of a photograph. Here's how:
Print three extra photographs off of the offending negative. Stack them perfectly on top of each other and tape them down to your desktop. Find a black strip next to the area you need to get rid of, so the colors match as precisely as possible, and slice it out.
Now you have freed up three equal black strips, from each of the three photographs in your stack.
Go back to the original and paste your strips in over the image, just where you need them. Eyeball it to make sure no one will ever be able to tell.
Look closely. White lines start at the top left of the next image and continue appearing all the way down to the bottom right. Whatever we're covering up here, it's BIG.
Looks good. Done!
Again... (grin)... no one imagined that a technology like Photoshop image enhancement would ever exist in those days!
Wouldn't you then want to get rid of all but one copy of your photographs, so you wouldn't have to either re-do this work five times in a row or risk getting caught with your pants down?
Thank you, Dr. Johnston, for disobeying a direct order!
The possibility that something else was hiding in this picture is raised by looking at the official Russian enhancement of the entire shot. A clear anomaly can be seen above the lunar lander:
It makes sense that NASA would be interested in these anomalies if they had already been spotted prior to the manned missions. That might explain why such oddities are seen in the backgrounds of lunar landing sites. Wouldn't you want to know?
And if you still believe this is all just BS, why has there been a complete blackout of any and all of the data we discussed at the National Press Club in the American mainstream media? And why end Dr. Johnston's exemplary career over it?
This Russian article already has over 100 comments posted to it as we publish this piece. Although some diehard 'debunkers' will remain in denial long after the burden of proof has been repeatedly satisfied, most of the Russian comments are taking it very seriously:
Our next detailed, three-part Russian article includes a seven-part photographic analysis by an indigenous Ukranian astronomer, specializing in potential extraterrestrial lunar artifacts:
Here is a translation of the official Russian coverage into German:
And, just as we go to press, the popular Russian newspaper "Moskovskij Komsomolets" has asked us for an exclusive interview with new photographs and comments. More to come!
INTERVIEW WITH API NEWS IN RUSSIA
Lastly, Ken Johnston received a series of questions this morning from Vladimir Yaduta of the API News International Department in Russia -- regarding detailed responses to questions raised at our Tuesday news briefing.
Here are API's original Russian questions in translated English, followed by Ken's replies:
Commander David Bowman, the heroic figure in 2001, was led into a fantastic journey of consciousness evolution by the Monolith they discovered on the Moon.
Could this be a predictive glance of the world-changing effect that this knowledge will have on each person once this suppressed truth is finally allowed to see the light of day?
Will the shackles of our collective ignorance be broken in an epiphany of understanding and fellowship of humanity, as we realize that our petty internecine struggles are overshadowed by a much older and far more interesting history?
Now is the time we have been waiting for. An ever-increasing momentum has been started, and with your continued enthusiasm and support, the Secrecy Curtain can be broken -- just like the Iron Curtain was shattered nearly two decades ago.
UPDATE NOVEMBER 13, 2007:
DISCLOSURE MOMENTUM IS SKYROCKETING!
Enterprise Mission has always focused on physical, hard evidence of apparent ruins on other satellites in our Solar System. Mars was our original focus, and is still the most intriguing set of anomalies on our radar.
If we can see it, photograph it, measure it and ultimately visit it in person, then we're very interested.
For this same reason, we have avoided discussing the UFO issue, as it is ephemeral by its very nature. There may be eyewitness reports, anomalous radiation readings, landing traces, photos, videos, et cetera, but there is no place on Earth where an alleged ET craft sits and waits to be photographed, visited and studied at our leisure...
...At least none the public has any access to.
Nonetheless, within two weeks of our National Press Club debriefing of the world media, the 'disclosure' effort has suddenly taken a HUGE leap forward. Multiple fronts are bursting forth, all at the same time.
It's almost like something's getting ready to happen. Like something IS happening!
Tell your friends. Fence-sitting time is over. Someone seems to have decided that kindergarten is over... and it's time for us to graduate into the 'first grade' of what is really going on.
REICH: SUDDENLY NOT SO RIDICULED
The first inkling of 'leaks' happening, possibly as a result of our conference, occurred just four days after we spoke at the National Press Club.
At this link, you can read a Boston.com article about Wilhelm Reich, a contemporary of Freud who made early discoveries of hyperdimensional 'torsion fields' in action.
Reich also demonstrated the "orgone" fields' intriguing -- and supportive -- connections with biological life, including healing effects:
It is now open, public knowledge that the US government came down on Reich with such force that he was imprisoned, his books burned and his life ended while he was under incarceration.
Call it coincidence or synchronicity, but Reich ordered that his remaining -- and quite extensive -- files be kept sealed and secret for precisely 50 years after his death.
Those 50 years just spontaneously ended... four days after we held our press conference, ( ! ), where we documented similar -- and very current -- NASA attempts to destroy Ken Johnston's career and suppress breakthrough information:
Unfortunately, the article fails to mention why 'bions' are so important. Namely, Reich believed these spontaneous energy emissions were responsible for the creation of life... from previously inanimate matter.
This was not just a supposition. Reich was one of the first to investigate and document potential proof for this hypothesis in the laboratory -- and his successors have continued to demonstrate the same effects, under the strictest conditions.
And that brings us to our next point...
FOX NEWS PROMOTES LIFE ON MARS!
If we couldn't produce the link, you'd never believe us, so here it is... fresh off the 'presses' from earlier today:
Fox News is now officially 'seeding' the idea of life on other planets!
Bear in mind... not only did we just break into worldwide media headlights with evidence of ruins on the Moon, but Reich has suddenly gained mainstream credibility as well -- and his discoveries go a long way towards proving that "wherever there is water, there will be life".
NASA has repeatedly made statements connecting water with life over the years, without giving any scientific clarification. Hoagland is rarely, if ever, given credit for being the first to propose the idea that a primitive, algae-type form of life may be found on Europa.
Admittedly, this Fox article is still just a toe in the water, as the experiment only demonstrates the possibility that this could work... but once you put it in context, the meaning becomes obvious.
More 'leaks' will soon follow... and we may even have a real gusher on our hands here:
Notice how the Russians were responsible for this experiment -- which occurred with the help of one of their space probes.
Notice also how the wording of the article inspires far more hope, imagination and insight than the actual scientific 'meat' in it, which is quite tame compared to what's really out there. Nonetheless, it defeats any skeptic who would suggest that any and all bacteria automatically die if they're inside a meteorite.
This article is intended to seed the imagination -- get people thinking outside the box -- and expand our ideas of what is possible.
Nonetheless, if it's 'meat' you want, it's 'meat' you're getting... particularly as we head into these next chunks of data!
DISCLOSURE TAKES AN INCREDIBLE LEAP FORWARD
Yesterday, November 12, 2007, a group of top military and government witnesses -- headed by former Arizona governor Fife Symington -- assembled at the National Press Club.
This event, financed by the Sci Fi Network, occurred almost precisely two weeks after our own... before there was any chance of the momentum for disclosure dying down.
Symington and crew delivered a formal presentation to the world's media regarding their personal knowledge and experience with the UFO phenomenon.
And guess what... our old buddies and pals at Fox News have given it full coverage, among many other media entities who are finally deciding to pull their heads out of the sand!
Skeptics should bear in mind that there is not a single titter, joke, slur of any kind in this piece... not even the slightest whiff of sarcasm, scorn, or slander. It is totally up-front, straight ahead and matter of fact.
And it's FOX! ... arguably the closest thing we've got to a direct mouthpiece for the United States Government.
The best way to rally public support around an issue like this is to get them thinking THEY are the ones who want to hear about it.
This is much stronger -- and safer -- than if they think YOU are the one who has decided it's time to tell them the truth.
"RODDENBERRY'S LAW" IS NOW IN EFFECT
As my old colleague Gene Roddenberry once exclaimed, "if it's real, then why don't I see it on TV?"
Roddenberry's Law was satisfied for Symington's press conference. Larry King devoted an entire episode of his show to this event!
Again, except for the very beginning of the show, where there was a tongue-in-cheek quip against Shirley McLaine, the entire program was straightforward, serious and supportive.
The skeptic who was brought in towards the end was a laughingstock, in this case. His arguments seemed utterly absurd in the face of the expert testimony that was being given.
Google is shooting down copies of this video like Cheney on a quail hunt, so don't be surprised if you have to do a bit of searching!
As you have just seen, serious mainstream media coverage of the event is taking place -- even from such notably biased entities as Fox News.
This strongly suggests that Hoagland and Johnston's break into American television media coverage on the lunar ruins issue will soon follow.
The likelihood of such a break would be catapulted much further if there were new evidence that Russia will push for such a disclosure.
Hmm... let's see...
RUSSIA AND CHINA ANNOUNCE MOON RACE: JUST A COINCIDENCE?
Now get this. On the very same day this "Disclosure" conference was held, Russia and India announced a joint mission... to the Moon!
This only happened, of course, after Putin offered the same deal to the US, only to be flatly turned down:
Hmm... "cooperation in sensitive areas."
Very, very interesting indeed.
Stay tuned... there are other developments brewing that we are not yet authorized to disclose.
Well, we could tell you, but then we'd have to... you know.
