• NASA has announced a joint U.S.-Russia project to develop a space station to orbit the Moon.
• Their long-term mission is to explore deep space and send humans to mars.

Russia and the United States have agreed to co-operate on a NASA-led project to build the first lunar space station, part of a long-term project to explore deep space and send humans to Mars.
Following in the footsteps of the International Space Station, the moon ship would be open to astronauts and cosmonauts from around the world.

Space bosses hope the Deep Space Gateway will allow mankind to stage space flights to Mars and elsewhere in the Solar System.

“The partners intend to develop international technical standards which will be used later, in particular to create a space station in lunar orbit,” the Russian space agency said in a statement after the signing of an agreement at a conference in Adelaide.

In a mission statement for the project, NASA said: “NASA is leading the next steps into deep space near the moon, where astronauts will build and begin testing the systems needed for challenging missions to deep space destinations including Mars.

“The area of space near the moon offers a true deep space environment to gain experience for human missions that push farther into the solar system, access the lunar surface for robotic missions but with the ability to return to Earth if needed in days rather than weeks or months.”

• The Society for Planetary SETI Research (SPSR) has recently published a report claiming that structures on the far side of the moon may have been built by non-humans.
• Many sources in the past have made similar claims that artificial objects and structures exist on the Moon, including Carl Sagen.
• Mark Carlotto, an expert in digital image processing, discovered an ‘excavated’ entrance to a passageway leading underground on the moon.
• Former NATO Army intelligence analyst, Bob Dean, spoke of the government destroying 40 rolls of Apollo program film of the moon that authorities determined were ‘too socially and politically unacceptable’ for the public to see.
• Former astronaut, Edgar Mitchell, said “there is no doubt that we are being visited”, we have evidence, but it’s been covered up by governments for a long time.
• The Deputy Manager for the Clementine Mission to the Moon in 1994 said that the mission’s purpose was not to find water on the moon, but to track strange objects on the far side of the moon, which they found.
• Dr. Norman Bergrun of the Ames Labs/Lockheed-Martin accused NASA of “garbling” images to hide certain things.
• NASA contractor, Donna Hare, reported that her ‘job’ was to airbrush UFO’s out of moon photographs before public release.
• Having top secret crypto-clearance with the USAF was told about a base on the back of the moon in 1965, including geometric shapes, towers, and radar dishes.
• The SPSR study cites ‘scientific fraud’ stating that the conservative mainstream scientific establishment nevertheless rejects the notion of alien artifacts on the moon because extraterrestrial do not exist, therefore alien artifacts cannot exist on the moon.

Members of the Society For Planetary SETI Research (SPSR) have recently published a paper in the Journal of Space Exploration about certain features on the far side of the moon that appear in the crater Paracelsus C. titled “Image Analysis of Unusual Structures on the Far Side of the Moon in the Crater Paracelsus C,” it argues that these features might be artificial in origin, meaning someone other than a human being built them and put them there.

Contrary to popular belief, reports of artificial structures on the moon are both common and persistent. Among the first were from George Leonard’s 1976 book, Somebody Else is on the Moon, and Fred Steckling’s 1981 book, We Discovered Alien Bases on The Moon. There are many more, and from many credible sources, which we will get to later in the article.

During the early years of SETI, in 1963, even Carl Sagan spoke about the possibility of extraterrestrial visitation:

“It is not out of the question that artifacts of these visits still exist, or even that some kind of base is maintained (possibly automatically) within the solar system to provide continuity for successive expeditions. Because of weathering and the possibility of detection and interference by the inhabitants of the Earth, it would be preferable not to erect such a base on the Earth’s surface. The Moon seems one reasonable alternative. Forthcoming high resolution photographic reconnaissance of the Moon from space vehicles – particularly of the back side – might bear these possibilities in mind.”

This new study describes how they discovered seven Apollo-15 and four Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) images of the same enigmatic objects in the moon crater Paracelsus C, and how they differ significantly from the rocks scattered around and within the majority of craters on Luna.

Drawing from multiple images taken at different times of the lunar day, and from different sun angles, the authors point out how it’s possible to predict an approximate shape for the objects by using shape-form-shading software. This type of 3D rendering has allowed them to fly around the site in order to see how odd the objects look in their location within the south-west quadrant of the crater, which is approximately 24km in diameter. The question the scientists now ask is, are these objects artificial? If so, when were they manufactured, and by whom? They emphasize that a rover mission to Paracelsus C would probably provide some very interesting answers.

The study concludes by stating that, “Based on the evidence presented in this paper we believe this area in Paracelsus C is one such candidate that is worthy of future study by orbital missions and surface rovers. Both of the features analyzed in this area are statistically different from the surrounding terrain.”

Carl Sagan argued that deviations like these are a necessary (though insufficient) condition of intelligent activity. What’s also interesting to note about Sagan is that he was accused, by multiple colleagues, of assisting the elite with the extraterrestrial cover-up.

Another great point the authors make deals with scientific fraud, which is something we see today in all realms of research, from health to climate change. The politicization of science is a real problem in the modern day world, and the study authors point out how it is impeding efforts to learn more about outer space:

“A decidedly conservative mainstream scientific establishment often rejects anomalies based on subject matter alone, i.e., there cannot be alien artifacts on the moon because there are no alien artifacts on the moon (or other planets). Such a view is an example of circular reasoning, based on the belief that extraterrestrials do not exist, or if they do exist that they could not have traveled to our solar system.”

• A September 11th solar event caused an ultraviolet aurora covering the entire planet of Mars.
• This “unusual and unexpected” event occurred at the “solar minimum” of the eleven-year cycle when solar activity is at a minimum.
• The global aurora was “more than 25 times brighter than any previously seen”.
• “The current solar cycle has been an odd one” said Sonal Jain of the University of Colorado Boulder’’s Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics.
• Is this highly unusual solar cycle more evidence of the energy shift that folks like David Wilcock and Corey Goode predict will soon occur to help raise human consciousness on Earth?

The auroras on Earth, caused by the interaction of coronal mass ejections from the sun with the planet’s magnetic field, are mostly centered over or near the north and south poles, and people travel to places from where the dazzling display of lights in the sky is visible. But what if an aurora covered the entire planet?

That may not be possible on Earth, given its strong magnetic field that concentrates the aurora near the poles, but that is precisely what happened on Mars in the second week of September. The solar event that caused this global aurora on the red planet occurred Sept. 11 and its effect was observed by a multitude of Mars-observing instruments over the following two days.

One of the missions that observed this unusual and unexpected occurrence was NASA’s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution, or MAVEN. It has been looking at the Martian atmosphere from its vantage point in orbit around Mars since September 2014, and the global aurora seen Sept. 12-13 was “more than 25 times brighter than any previously seen” by it, according to a NASA statement Friday.

The images were produced by MAVEN’s Imaging Ultraviolet Spectrograph. So, even if you happened to be in the vicinity of Mars, you would not have been able to see the aurora in its glorious intensity because our eyes cannot see in the ultraviolet spectrum of light.

Even the radiation levels produced on the Martian surface as a result of the solar activity were “more than double any previously measured” by the Radiation Assessment Detector (RAD) instrument on NASA’s Curiosity rover since it landed on the Martian surface 5 years ago, the statement said.

“If you were outdoors on a Mars walk and learned that an event like this was imminent, you would definitely want to take shelter, just as you would if you were on a space walk outside the International Space Station. To protect our astronauts on Mars in the future, we need to continue to provide this type of space weather monitoring there,” Don Hassler of the Southwest Research Institute’s Boulder, Colorado, office, who is also the principle investigator for RAD, said in the statement.
