US and Japan to Cooperate on Return to the Moon

• At a May 27th joint press conference in Tokyo, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and President Donald Trump announced their agreement for the two nations to cooperate in space exploration. “I am pleased to confirm that Prime Minister Abe and I have agreed to dramatically expand our nations’ cooperation in human space exploration,” Trump said. “Japan will join our mission to send U.S. astronauts to space. We’ll be going to the moon. We’ll be going to Mars very soon. It’s very exciting.”

• The agreement between the two leaders was not released, and neither Trump nor Abe would elaborate. A State Department fact sheet noted that the two “agreed on the importance of a sustained human presence on and around the moon.” “Building on its International Space Station (ISS) experience, Japanese astronauts will strive to join American astronauts on the moon and destinations beyond,” the fact sheet noted.

• Japan, a major partner on the ISS, had shown an interest in participating in aspects of NASA’s renewed push to return to the moon, including contributing modules to the Gateway facility NASA plans to develop in lunar orbit to support human lunar landings. The agreement could include Japanese astronauts going to the moon.

• NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine tweeted that he was “very excited” about the agreement announced by Trump and Abe. “Japan and [JAXA] are critical partners in our efforts to go forward to the Moon and on to Mars!”

• In a video released by NASA, Hiroshi Yamakawa, president of the Japanese space agency said, “It’s a great pleasure to collaborate with NASA in that endeavor.”

• With the White House’s urging, NASA accelerated its plans to return humans to the lunar surface by 2024, versus the 2028 date in its previous plans. Major roles for international partners will mostly be deferred to the second phase, which will focus on establishing a sustainable human presence on and around the moon after the 2024 landing. Ken Bowersox, deputy associate administrator for human exploration and operations at NASA, said that if international partners can accelerate their contributions, “they’re welcome to participate in the early phases.”

• The Japanese company ‘ispace’ is developing commercial lunar landers as part of a team led by the American company, Draper, that won one of nine Commercial Lunar Payload Services agreements from NASA last November to transport research payloads to the lunar surface. Founder and chief executive of ispace Takeshi Hakamada stated, “We are thrilled to learn that the U.S. and Japan will deepen its strong relationship in space exploration through a focused effort on lunar exploration.”

 

WASHINGTON — The governments of the United States and Japan have agreed to further cooperation in space which could include flying Japanese astronauts to the moon.

At a joint press conference in Tokyo May 27 with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, President Donald Trump mentioned cooperation in space exploration as one outcome of their meetings during the president’s visit to the country.

“I am pleased to confirm that Prime Minister Abe and I have agreed to dramatically expand our nations’ cooperation in human space exploration,” Trump said. “Japan will join our mission to send U.S. astronauts to space. We’ll be going to the moon. We’ll be going to Mars very soon. It’s very exciting.”

Neither Trump nor Abe elaborated on the nature of that agreement, which was not released. A fact sheet released by the State Department May 27 noted that the two “agreed on the importance of a sustained human presence on and around the moon.”

“Building on its International Space Station (ISS) experience, Japanese astronauts will strive to join American astronauts on the moon and destinations beyond,” the State Department fact sheet noted.

A cooperative agreement of some kind between the United States and Japan was expected to be signed during Trump’s visit. Japan, a major partner on the ISS, had shown an interest in participating in aspects of NASA’s renewed push to return to the moon, including contributing modules to the Gateway facility NASA plans to develop in lunar orbit to support human lunar landings.

“It’s a great pleasure to collaborate with NASA in that endeavor,” Hiroshi Yamakawa, president of the Japanese space agency JAXA, said in a video released by NASA May 28 about international cooperation on the development of the Gateway and its overall lunar plans.

Huge UFO Spotted Near Moon Sparks Invasion Fear

by Nirmal Narayanan                April 15, 2019                 (ibtimes.co.in)

• The YouTube channel, UFO Mania, has released mysterious video that shows a huge UFO trying to hide behind the moon. The video was taken by Daniil Tumanny of Indianapolis, Indiana.

• The UFO seems to be so large in size that it appears right next to the Moon, and looks like a classic Hollywood space vessel. Is it going behind the Moon toward a ‘dark side’ base?

• Some YouTubers think that it is an alien craft. Others say that it indicates that Donald Trump’s Space Force is already operational and patrolling in ‘near space’.

• “At this point, people are so dumbed down you could have space ships flying all over the place and people wouldn’t even notice because they are too addicted to looking at their cellphones. I have seen many UFO’s flying around over my house in the last two years but who would believe me? It is sad how most humans are now just zombies,” commented YouTuber Synthia Burns.

• “A 500km diameter object not seen in any other country in the entire world… I don’t buy it. Besides it’s a computerized model of Kubrick’s space station in 2001: A Space Odyssey,” commented YouTube skeptic Diego Rucci.

 

Conspiracy theorists and alien enthusiasts have long been claiming that extraterrestrials from deep space used to visit the earth to monitor human activities. As per these conspiracy theorists, the rise in UFO sightings all across the world is an indication of alien activities, and some of them even believe that disclosure is going to happen soon. Adding heat to their views, popular conspiracy theory channel UFO Mania has now released a mysterious footage that shows a huge UFO trying to hide behind the moon.

The video was originally uploaded to YouTube by a user named Daniil Tumanny, but it gained popularity after it was shared by UFO Mania. In the video, the UFO which seems so large in size can be seen hovering very near to earth’s natural satellite. Interestingly, the shape and nature of the flying object spotted near the moon seem very similar to the alien vessels that we have seen in Hollywood sci-fi films.

As the video went viral on YouTube, most of the people who watched the clip argued that this UFO is nothing but an alien spaceship from the deep space. Some conspiracy theorists even went a step ahead and revealed that aliens have a secret base on the far side of the moon.

Amateur Astronomer Spots Two UFOs Flying Over the Moon

by Nirmal Narayanan                 March 23, 2019                       (ibtimes.co.in)

• An amateur astronomer from Turkey has spotted two diamond-shaped UFOs hovering low over the Moon’s surface, and then speeding across the lunar surface. One flying object seems twice the size of the other. (see 1:07 minute video of the pair of UFOs over the Moon’s surface below)

• As the video went viral, popular alien researcher Scott C Waring analyzed the clip and assured that this sighting is authentic proof of extraterrestrial presence on the Moon. “This object is actually two UFOs flying side by side, like a military wingman for USAF fighter jets. Both objects are diamond shaped, yet one is twice the size of the other. If these were meteors, they would be leaving a trail of debris behind them, and there is no way they would be perfect diamond flying side by side. These are alien craft flying over our Moon. This is 100% proof that aliens are actively using our Moon not just as a base, but as a home,” wrote Waring on his website ‘UFO Sightings Daily’.

• Even though many experts have dismissed the claims made by Waring as a case of pareidolia, the researcher is continuing his search to find anomalies in NASA images. At one point in time, he had also asked United States president Donald Trump to appoint him as the head of NASA so that he can open up crucial details regarding the existence of alien life.

 

Conspiracy theorists all across the world strongly believe that an advanced extraterrestrial civilization is living on the moon and space agencies like NASA are well aware of its existence. Adding heat to these claims, an amateur astronomer from Turkey has spotted two unidentified flying objects (UFO) hovering low over the moon’s surface.

The UFOs was later seen speeding across the lunar surface and the sighting seems to be very similar to the visuals we have witnessed in Hollywood movies.

The UFOs spotted in the video are diamond-shaped and one flying object seems double the size of the other. As the video went viral, popular alien researcher Scott C Waring analyzed the clip and assured that this sighting is authentic proof of extraterrestrial presence on the moon.

“This object is actually two UFOs flying side by side, like a military wingman for USAF fighter jets. Both objects are diamond shaped, yet one is twice the size of the other. If these were meteors, they would be leaving a trail of debris behind them, and there is no way they would be perfect diamond flying side by side. These are alien craft flying over our moon. This is 100% proof that aliens are actively using our moon not just as a base, but as a home,” wrote Waring on his website UFO Sightings Daily.

A few days back, after analyzing NASA images, Scott C Waring discovered a seemingly alien ship in the moon’s Waterman crater. Waring also assured that it could be a gigantic alien space vessel which might be more than 10 miles long.
