Forty-five years later, they finally found Neil Armstrong's Moon memorabilia... but that was in 2012, and now the story is just now being "pushed"?  Joseph's high octane speculation of the day: there are a few things amiss in this story, and he considers some possibilities...

Joseph P. Farrell has a doctorate in patristics from the University of Oxford, and pursues research in physics, alternative history and science, and "strange stuff". His book The Giza DeathStar, for which the Giza Community is named, was published in the spring of 2002, and was his first venture into "alternative history and science".

    It’s well discussed in the fake moon landing researchers (doesn’t mean they didn’t go, just means the media content was faked) that the use of film on the moon is impossible given the extreme heat and cold. couple that with the perfectly framed video shots and we have a question. How was it done. I suggest that Neil didn’t go to the moon with this equipment, and thus put these stage props aside as evidence. It would be foolish for any professional to take back extra weight.

    I’m disappointed that Joseph hasn’t talked to Jay Weidner about this development as the two of them would be able to bounce some good hypothesis around.

    The question is what did the astronauts find on the Moon there was a science fiction novel by the author of the Caine Mutiny. It concerns a secret mission to the Moon in 1954 in which a American astronaut discovers that there resides a race of giants beneath the surface. Much like in H.G. Wells novel First Men On The Moon in which describe as inhabited. So we a back to the old story what did NASA know about the Moon and when did they know it.

    To my recollection Armstrong was probably the quietest of the Apollo_12 crew. All of that crew were members of the Houston Masonic Lodge. I had an Army bud who later became a memberof that Lodge. So, you have to add the extra layer of Masonic intrigue when examining this bit of history. See link for reference:

      Great Clip!

    Very intriguing New & Views edition.
    One, with all that’s going on, you chose this.
    Two, the time delay? That implies a “purposed message. Going with that premise; the message looks to be prearranged sometime ago, the code may be specifically deciphered or general to those with specific knowledge. Puzzling it out, is beyond perhaps even the Riddler’s capacities.
    If there is a bag; as you questioned, switched-out[item(s)] or something missing?
    Indeed, it is hard to believe this merely an interesting newsprint space filler from long ago.
    As Foghorn Leghorn would say: It Just Don’t ADD UP!

      There will probably never be any objective verification of what this purported discovery actually was, so we are left with a cryptic message about “something brought back from the Moon”. Let’s see how long the silence lasts before the Smithsonian Institution announces a Moon Memorabilia Exhibition with all due fanfare. I wouldn’t hold my breath for this. Though it has spurred me on to do some housecleaning, you never know….

        Good One! DanaThomas.

    I’m glad you decided to discuss this article, as I just don’t know what to think of it either. All I could think of was that there must have been some photos in that camera, and the rest of the cables were just part of the stuff in that bag, or to give some credibility to the pictures that were in that camera. The cables and all seem authentic.

    Then I thought perhaps it was all planted, but why would someone plant cables in a bag if that’s all they were going to disclose?

    I wonder why he never discussed any of that stuff with his biographer, I don’t see how he would have gotten into a lot of trouble for bringing back a bunch of cables that were supposed to be left on the moon. And to reduce weight? How much weight are we talking about here?

    And yes, the real question is the one you brought up, why put out this information now if they discovered this stuff a few years ago. There really must be something in the wings, about to be released. Or are they worried that these private corporate guys vying to buy property rights on the moon going to come back with something more than rocks, and then they can say, Oh, that’s just some of our stuff we left up there. If the governments have found unusual objects on the moon, then they must be a bit concerned that these private guys going up there are going to be discovering the same things.

    Firstly look at the source, the Daily Mail, a dish rag paper if there ever was one. Also you cannot tell me that NASA didn’t check what any of the astronauts brought back, er, not much room to hide stuff in a space suit. This story has holes, and big one’s at that, I don’t believe a word of it. Funny though, Mr. Armstrong did go a bit loopy after all, recluse if you will, or just plain “frustrated” may be more like it.

    • loisg on February 19, 2015 at 3:27 pm

      From what I could find, the Daily Mail sourced this story from The Independent, I don’t know how you feel about that source.

      Getting my 2 cents in…
      When I hear about these various newspaper print rags, I can’t help but think of the NYTimes, aka, Her Majesty’s Rag.
