5 Moon’s Mysteries

By | On + -

Although it is the closest celestial body to us, the moon still harbors secrets aplenty. “Closest,” of course, is a relative term: The great gray and white orb in our sky never veers much nearer than 225,000 miles (362,000 kilometers), and getting there is no easy feat, especially in the case of manned missions. No human has left boot prints in the lunar regolith since 1972. So, the Moon is a mystery that is definitely worth a closer look. 


Lunar Magnetism

One of the Moon’s most enduring mysteries is the lack of its magnetic field—which proved to be a real problem when the moon rocks the Astronauts brought back in the 1960s and 1970s were found to be magnetic. Were they of alien origin? How could they be magnetic if the it wasn’t? What was going on?

Science has since found out that the Moon actually used to have a magnetic field. The jury is still out on what exactly caused it to vanish, but there are two leading theories. One team of researchers thinks it’s because of the natural stirring movements of it’s iron core, while another posits it may have something to do with a series of impacts with large space rocks.

    The most intriguing lunar mystery was not even mentioned: the empirical evidences NASCAR has that the moon is either hollow or possesses no solid core. This has been repeatedly indicated by events in which meteors or other debris some the moon and such is registered on the Apollo seismometers on the other side of the Moon… for hours, thereafter. The Moon rings like a gong as the sound waves bounce around inside without being absorbed… as though there were nothing there to absorb them.

    NASA… not NASCAR (Damned autocorrect)!

    The lack of an iron core also best explains why the Moon lacks a magnetic field, thus solving one of the listed mysteries.

    “This may be because the images showing these “signs of life” have almost certainly been doctored by the conspiracy theorists.” OK that’s annoying. There’s too many and some of the anomalies have multiple views by multiple researchers at multiple angles and spread over time. Are the debunkers making a “conspiracy” claim that the real story is that “conspiracy theorists” are in a conspiracy themselves? That’s rich. Wouldn’t that be a “conspiracy theory” itself? Hey Psuedoskeptics… welcome to the club. We are having soooo much fun finding out that nearly everything revealed about the moon by “the authorities” is a mis-direction and subtrefuge. PS there are not enough conspiracy theorists to produce the large body of anomaly discoveries that are being found in space agency photographs released to the public of the moon. The quality of the images suck, by the way. They take what was probably full-color, high-resolution moving films and turn it into black and white, low-resolution still shots to hide what’s really there.
