Here's some articles that are rather fun - or, rather disturbing, but we'll get to that in a moment - beginning with this one from those ever-so-reliable folks at Komsomolskaya Pravda:

Artificial air to be created in lunar atmosphere for moon colonists

Now let's pause briefly and consider those last comments:

"Astrophysicists were racking their brains over the lunar ionosphere for 40 years. Only recently, Tim Stubbs of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center Goddard, put forward a surprising hypothesis: the lunar ionosphere is created from moondust! According to Stubbs, the astronauts of Apollo 15 observed a mysterious glow on the horizon of the Moon. It could be caused by the ionization of dust particles that were glowing in the rays of the rising or setting sun. The scientist believes that the electric charge that occurs during the process is enough to maintain the ionosphere. Needless to say that there is more than enough dust on the Moon.

"Not so long ago, a group of Cambridge chemists led by Derek Fray developed a device that could extract oxygen from the lunar soil - regolith. The name refers to the mixture of fine dust and rocky debris formed as a result of meteor impacts.

"Derek Fray and his colleagues suggested a method based on the electrochemical process developed to produce pure metals and alloys from the oxides contained in regolith. This alloy is used as the cathode, whereas carbon plays the role of the anode.

"If such soil-to-oxygen converters are mounted on the entire surface of the Moon, potential colonists from Earth will have something to breathe in spite of the fact that the satellite has no livable atmosphere of its own."

In other words, scientists are busily trying to figure out how to produce a liveable atmosphere from Moon dust, and we are permitted to extrapolate from this that they are also trying to figure our workable techniques and technologies of terra-forming and geo-engineering, or better put, techniques and technologies of Selene-forming and -engineering.

Then, there's this:

Private manned Mars mission gets corporate sponsors

Let's pause and speculate a bit on this development. After the great age of exploration, Holland and England established their famous "East India" Companies to further the western exploration, contact, and eventual domination of trade with the Orient, and to this end, both governments created these semi-private semi-public companies - with corresponding mercantilist policies - to establish trading outposts and colonies in an archipelago of bases from Europe, through and around Africa, and into the Indian subcontinent and the Southeast Asia Pacific basin. From the point of view of the companies (and governments) involved, it worked.

With the recent calls for corporate manned space explanation, I suggest we may be witnessing a replay of history, on a far grander scale, and with much more at stake, since in effect, such "Dutch East Mars" companies would be able to "collateralize" their extraterrestrial property and resources. With this possible commercialization, comes the inevitable consequence, as such rival companies will inevitably have to protect their investments, and thus, inevitably, any trading routes thus established in space, as with the terrestrial example, will have to fortify their outposts and protect their vessels with ships. Both Holland and England, of course, built powerful navies for precisely this purpose, and one does not need to rehearse the importance of the role of Britain's Royal Navy in the maintenance of British imperialism and commercial power.

Now with this in mind, contemplate the following article:

Space Comrades: Russia seeks US and EU help in building collective moon base Read more:

We've commented previously here about Russian calls for international space cooperation regarding the Moon and Mars, but considered within the emerging context of the commercialization (and potential collateralization) of our celestial neighbors (assuming, of course, that no one else holds any outstanding liens or claims on them!) this is an interesting development, for it implies precisely that such protective purposes are in the mind of the space planners. Whether "ET" exists or not, such a contingency must at least be planned for, and hence, one may safely assume that,public denunciations of the weaponization of space from any of the world's major space powers notwithstanding, in so far as the commercialization of space is concerned, it is an inevitability.

See you on the flip side...

    Check out this link where Richard Branson says he’s going to start a Mars colony in his lifetime.

    A “soft” article which quotes CBS news, but interesting nonetheless. Is Richard Branson serious?? Only The Shadow knows.

    Removing the covers is the same as lifting the veil.

    Dr Farrell, your ‘reporting’ is getting worse and worse.

    Even the “lamestream” has a GOOD story now & then.

    Dr. Farrell,

    I submit you missed something in your analysis:

    “Only recently, Tim Stubbs of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center Goddard, put forward a surprising hypothesis: the lunar ionosphere is created from moondust! According to Stubbs, the astronauts of Apollo 15 observed a mysterious glow on the horizon of the Moon. It could be caused by the ionization of dust particles that were glowing in the rays of the rising or setting sun.”


    1. It legitimate scientific speculation; or

    2. It is Information Operations to discredit / refute Mike Hoagland’s thesis of the ruins of lunar domes causing refractory scattering of incident sunlight.

    P.S. Psyops is a sub-discipline of Info Ops (a.k.a. STRATCOM). The fear created by 9/11 was psyops. The general perception that it was an independent act of an Islamic terrorist organization, with the aim of created a pseudo-police state and desired conflict, was the higher Info Op

    History may not repeat itself; but it damn sure rhymes. Very good observation Doctor, it’s why I enjoy your site so much. I’ve read plenty on the Dutch east india Company,

    …and can’t wait to sign up on a Pirate Ship!

    Whether ET exists or not…..lets us observe and deduce shall we.

    Our star has planets, which has one with millions of life forms.
    Now look up.

    • HAL838 on September 19, 2012 at 8:40 am

      yeah, and we 🙂
      [those that will]
      haven’t even started yet !

    • Robert Barricklow on September 19, 2012 at 8:50 am

      And then look in the mirror.

      • Jedi on September 19, 2012 at 9:05 am

        my training in the light is not yet complete, although i have a suspicion that i will never go into the shadows once completed,

        Although I will understand and be able to use the full power of the dark side…..of those that look into mirrors.

        good luck pirate, my father and I cry.

        • Robert Barricklow on September 19, 2012 at 11:10 am

            pyramid….fire middle.

            and God called the firmament heaven…..

            its all in the first chapter of the good book….

          Vampires, those that require blood & shed
          as the earth rulers do, do NOT cast a shadow
          or have a mirror image.

          The “dark” is ‘deep’ and the deep is always
          in total darkness.
          There is no power there.

          Your boat is also sinking into this
          “bottomless pit,” Robert?

          THERE IS NO 1000 YEAR

            Hal, we are

            …The STARS!

          • Robert Barricklow on September 19, 2012 at 7:39 pm

            HAL 838. When you ‘talked’ vampires I was back in 2001’s Space Odyssey.
            Your not that Hal.

            I flashed forward to 2012.
            Everything copasetic?

          • HAL838 on September 20, 2012 at 1:47 am

            WE (?) are also the “aliens” that conquer those stars,
            past and future…..the creators, manifest directly
            from the (THOUGHT) Universe.
            [the (?) is for you]

            The 9000 series was its programming;
            an AI without conscience, without identity,
            without consciousness.

            the real HAL is origin(al) of experience, choice
            and the magic of (another) (of) US

            The song-key is in and of “Magic.”

            ‘838’ is a part of the geometry-magic brought
            on by H-A-L in all caps conviguration as they
            may gather [together]

            There is NO blood drawn or shed.

            I had to put THOUGHT into that.
            It is a shame that YOU are the only one
            that asks ANYTHING.

            Even our host has lost the way of his
            own writing and considerable research.

          • Robert Barricklow on September 20, 2012 at 10:25 am

            There is that.
            The uncertainty principle couple with other “data/theory” lead to that conundrum/egnima.
            But the deeper search leads, no doubt, back to a place on the circle already traveled. BUT in a “spiral” fashion, so that there is no beginning or end. AND there is another dimension “we’re” missimng entirely. In other words, we know of beginnings & endings; but these are singular. “We” need another language in a “circular spiral” of no begiinings and/or endings.
            And then of course we do have it, in “nothing”. “you” just have to suspemnd ALL belief to “see” & “hear” as (n)one.

          • HAL838 on September 20, 2012 at 11:30 am

            Why does everyone seem to want to complicate simplicity?

            IS IT because IT becomes an excuse for not figuring IT out?

            Backtracking my posts, I don’t think I could have made it plainer

    Ever research the economic history of the nutmeg trade?

    The Dutch East Mars company….lol.

  7. marcos anthony toledo on September 19, 2012 at 6:49 am

    So they are going to do in space is kill each other over who is going to plunder like they do on Earth when will they ever grow up same old story never changes.

  8. md9876 on September 19, 2012 at 6:36 am

    If the theory that the secret blackops brigade is 30-40 years technologically more advanced than main stream science is correct then this could possibly indicate that the technology is already being used and that there already is a moonbase and marsbase. I think John Lear mentioned that there is some cover up about the lunar atmosphere already…
