Ah, no sooner read than done Don, really one of my fav topics and certainly one of yours...I just wrote an Op Ed piece for Gary Bekkum's Starpod.org website on the Moon. If you are interested, and I included several photographs, go to Don Ecker's Moon Quest | Dark Matters | STARpod.org
Well, that was the problem ... talk I mean. There was a lot of talk but not any of it was realized.yes that's who I meant. thanks. One other question Don, what ever happened to the show about the Moon that you and Robert Kiviat were talking about doing when you both were on the Paracast?
I have never made a secret that my thinking about why we quit our moon program was that it was made known to NASA that "we" were not welcome there. Look at what the public plans were and were being discussed in the mid to later 1960's. We were discussing lunar bases, manufacturing facilities on the lunar surface, etc. and etc. After 6 missions landed, that was it. We still had missions ready to go and the equip. was built and the astronauts were trained and named and suddenly ... NADA! After December of 1972 it was as if we RETRACTED the space program. Oh, we flew Skylab, we flew it in low earth orbit but that was it. I was always suspicious of why and NASA's explanation that the "public lost interest" always struck me as the most blatant bullshit. After George Leonard's book, "Somebody Else Is On the Moon" came out .. then damned near disappeared as quickly as it came out, the reason we may have left became very clear to me. I lived through the 60's and remember a lot of chatter about the moon prior to our landing there. The mysterious moving "domes" were discussed, lights flaring up in craters and the NASA report TR-277 all discussed mysterious items about the moon that were evident going back hundreds of years. If China goes up and lands then that should prove interesting.Don, I don't know if you have discussed this topic before or not. Do think the reason we have not been back to the Moon was that we were 'chased off' by other alien races? I know this is all speculation, but I understand the Chinese are planning a moon trip in the future. What might they find?
