LUNAR GLASS BEAD GAME?

Ok... enough with the finances and geopolitics. It's time to turn our attention to non-terrestrial geopolitics and economics...

So many people saw this story I have to talk about it and offer my usual high octane speculations. The story comes from RT, and concerns an unusual discovery which might indicate the presence of large amounts of subsurface water on...

...the Moon:

'Substantial' ocean of water beneath moon’s surface could help create human colony

Scientists, the story alleges, have recently tested little glass beads brought back from the Moon during the Apollo 15 and 17 missions, and have found tiny amounts of water embedded in the little beads:

Scientists who retested mineral samples collected during the Apollo moon missions now believe there’s a massive amount of water under the lunar surface – a discovery which may make manned missions to the moon easier than previously thought.

Researchers at Brown University in the US examined glass beads, a type of volcanic crystal gathered during the Apollo 15 and 17 missions in the 1970s, and found they contained similar volumes of water to Earth’s basalt rock.

The leaders of the study, which has been published in Nature Geoscience, cite the parallels as evidence that parts of the moon contain a similarly large amount of water. This, they believe, could be useful for future lunar missions as it means water could potentially be extracted rather than carried from home.

As the article also notes, Lunar ice has been found, sometimes at the bottom of craters, sometimes at the poles. With a more abundant source of water scattered across the lunar surface, permanent colonies become more feasible, and the article reminds us that the European Space Agency and the Chinese have teamed up to build a lunar 3D printed colony.

Ok... so where's all the high octane speculation here?

Well, I suspect that this story conceals more than it reveals. For example, the existence of water on the Moon, or rather, under its surface, and in possible significant amounts, has been known for some time. Both NASA and Russian pictures exist from the Cold War that show "clouds" emerging from various points on the lunar surface, which many scientists at the time believed were water, or water vapor, being ejected or outgassed, from beneath the lunar surface in geyser-like fashion. The phenomenon was not a one-off event, which means that long before this "Glass Bead Game" was played(sorry, I couldn't resist), the existence of Lunar water, in significant amounts, was known. The problem with that idea was of course that the Moon was not the geologically inactive gigantic-rock-in-space that many believed it to be. So what we're really being asked to believe is that this sort of analysis of the water in beads - as a confirming experiment to those pictures - was never done until now. And of course, I think that highly unlikely.

So, before I get to my high octane speculation of what may really be going on, I want readers to recall the "Newton-Asimov Lunar Difficulty," lots of early Cold War lunar probes that seemed to have difficulty hitting that very big target (or that alternatively went careening into it), weird utterances of von Braun to Time magazine just before he was "resigned" from NASA, statements by Soviet astronomers back in the "good old days" of the Cold War in English-language articles in Sputnik magazine about the Moon being a big spaceship, Apollo experiments that measured seismic activity in the Moon which "rang like a bell," more recent articles speculating on the possible existence on the Moon of large amounts of Helium-3 and all the wonderful possibilities of lunar mining, and so on.

In short, put yourself in "connect-the-dots" mode for a moment, and ask yourself what they might have really been looking for in that tiny amount of water contained in those tiny lunar Glass Beads. I rather suspect that they were looking carefully at the chemical composition of that water(which the article in fact states), but I suspect they were looking particularly at, or for, something else, namely, at the ratios of deuterium and tritium in it. In short, they were trying to determine if there was anything "isotopically unusual" about that water...

OK. You can call me crazy now.

See you on the flip side...

  1. Huuummmm………
    With large amounts of water in a hollow sphere, the nuance of functionality and interaction with earth et al begs one to contemplate the humble “capacitor.”
    Now to alter any such charge relationship if present makes one ponder what effect that might have and what level of alteration could be buffered………. much to contemplate.

  2. Recall too back in 2009, NASA’s LCROSS mission in which it churned up water and “lots of Mercury”. Mr Hoagland at the time pointed out that Mercury is very rare element, so what is “lots of Mercury” doing in a crater on the Moon?

    https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/lcross-mission-results/

    And for extra credit there is an obvious masonic connection to the name of the LCROSS mission if you dig into it. Mr. Hoagland had given me an “A” for the week for finding it.

  3. So what if there is water on the moon and here it comes folks, why haven’t we been back, there I said it. The composition of soil and water would tell us a lot, but that’s not the game here. “THEY” always have to play games with us, and the world is sick of this lunar game, NASA is a scientific lying machine and their credibility is down around their ankles, so believe nothing and question everything.

  4. Off topic post…
    This petition asks the President to support Citizen’s Petition, FDA-2017-P-4500, a five year moratorium on all childhood vaccines on the ground of inadequate information for parents to make an informed consent to the procedure, as well as the government’s failure to perform adequate pre or post safety testing of vaccinated and un-vaccinated populations.
    We ask the White House to:
    ONE: Impose a five year moratorium on all childhood vaccines from birth to age eighteen.
    TWO: Repeal the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act and return vaccines to the traditional civil justice system.
    THREE: Perform large scale studies of vaccinated and un-vaccinated children.
    FOUR: Ban direct pharmaceutical advertising to consumers and allow such advertising only to medical professionals.

  5. Yep, definitely crazy (like a fox, that is).

    Suddenly, after 60 years, they just decide on a whim to “retest” things they should have tested long ago?

    Yeah, right, I’d buy that . . . right after I help that poor Nigerian Prince . . .

    Certainly seems like more of the gradual data release conditioning program for the benefit of the mainstream narrative.

  6. I went from the article’s page to the “study, which has been published in ‘Nature Geoscience'” and the Abstract of the paper:
    “Remote detection of widespread indigenous water in lunar pyr oclastic deposits”
    http://www.nature.com/ngeo/journal/v10/n8/full/ngeo2993.html

    Just from the Abstract, it appears that no further laboratory ana lysis of the Apollo moonrocks was done. The authors just tied-in old ana lysis of moonrocks with new data from lunar orbit. From the new data, they refute or at least expand-upon the Apollo-days ‘known wisdom’ that the Moon is dry and dead. Perhaps there is original (new) laboratory ana lysis of pyr oclastic moonrocks in the full article, but it is not cited in the Abstract.

    One would have to be careful in separating-out ‘sources’ of water in any discussion of water on the Moon. If, in early lunar history, a series of mini-Ceres (hah!) type objects smacked-into the Moon over time, untold giga-tons of water would exist temporarily in sub-surface, surface, and ‘atmospheric’ zones. This would be precisely the times that mini-volcanoes would ‘vent’ due to the huge shockwaves passing-through and fracturing subsurface rock. So, rather than the water coming from ‘native’ mantle deposits, it may have been ‘planetoid’ water caught-up in the post-impact events. Which might be even more interesting, isotope-wise…

    1. Water is everywhere in space and also exists in massive quantities as a solid hydroxide mineral in many rocks. Where ever hydrogen and oxides occur abundantly water can be obtained.

    One of Rumsfeld’s unknowns known. In other words, “they” knew; the public didn’t.
    The known unknown would be is the artificial ship/satellite[moon]’s origins. Indeed other moons in our solar system no doubt express, in no uncertain terms, earlier civilizations, perhaps outside our solar system.
    Perhaps another known unknown is the origin of our own solar system? Artificial[seeded by “other”; or, natural?
    Too bad, the mushrooms continually are kept in the dark [not their own good] for the benefit of the chosen[selected] few.
    Information as currency has been attached to the ever growing ‘trickle-down syndrome’ of the clueless few who run this global asylum.

    1. Robert Barricklow

      Oops,
      the known unknown would be that the moon is an artificial satellite.
      But its origins are a known unknown.

  8. This brings also how much water is on Mars and there is Mercury and it’s deposits of water. And lets not forget good old Venus is it that bone dry and how old is it geologically. Our academic community has a record of being caught with it’s pants down fairly regularly.

    1. Venus may have been Heaven fairly recently before it got turned to Hell. It seems there is an attempt by some hidden force to turn Earth into another Hell which to the darker more powerful side of humanity will be Heavenly. Were Heaven and Hell ever two separate places or just two opposing views of the same manifestation depending upon the observer’s position in the social ranking? Remember the real battle is always spiritual in nature and is between the opposing immortal and infinite Principalities. It’s a battle that can never be completely won by any of the higher principles or more powerful lower principles. This pendalum will never stop swinging.

      1. This pendalum is the source of all life and death; creation and destruction; consciousness and unconsciousness; happiness and sorrow. Is this pendalum the true spirit of the ultimate Creator/Destroyer? The Prime mover?

      2. I have mentioned before the ‘hand waving’ done by planetary scientists around Venus. Judging from crater counts (and thus inferred-age of a surface), the entire surface of Venus must be ‘fresh’ (geologically-speaking). To explain this, planetary scientists proposed that the entire surface of Venus must have ‘overturned’ not long ago. Repaved. (Heaven into Hell, indeed!) This ‘theory’ was accepted as a given, despite no evidence of any massive event such as this ever appearing on another planet or moon. Hmm…

        (I am reminded of certain episodes in “Babylon 5” and it’s spin-off show “Crusade”. In those episodes, dark-side forces send a large volley of super-explosive-tipped missiles onto a planet. They penetrate deeply into the crust and detonate, causing the deep crust or mantle to fracture and overturn. The resultant magma-flows sterilize the planet, of course…)

  9. It is interesting that uranium was discovered in moon dirt by a Japanese probe that was launched in 2007. https://www.space.com/6904-uranium-moon.html
    As is well known, heavy water or deuterium oxide is used as a moderator in nuclear reactors, meaning that it slows down neutrons so that they are more likely to react with fissile Uranium-235. Therefore if the water in the beads is rich in deuterium then the beads would function to moderate the neutrons produced by the bombardment of the moon by cosmic rays and turn the surface of the moon into a slow-burning fission reactor. Additionally if there is tritium present in the glass beads then the heat generated by the fission reactions could trigger deuterium-tritium fusion reactions which would release considerably more energy. Consequently this would be an artificial means to provide warmth to the interior of the (hollow?) moon for possibly millions of years.

    As the story goes, Cosmic War Gizars shot Lunies into Swiss cheese. Paper moon origami is 3D printed. Luna is not a warship, she is a terraformer. Yahweh is a pyramid with a capstone.

    When creating habitat on a planetary scale, a self sustaining system must tap into planetary “spin”. To figure out the pyramid is to figure out the planet. The nature of “spin” is omnipresent.

    The cyclical process of elements is also a “spin”, thus mineral, vegetative and animal realm have common matrix. Basically, Terra is an organism. She is a breathing place. Respiration.

  11. On the contrary, I would think the suggestion of determining that water’s exact composition is quite reasonable. The moon housing a very old, very ancient military industrial complex for advanced weapons production? The moon as an aircraft carrier for interstellar travel and a transit point for trade? It’s short gravity well and landscape make it a perfect place for these types of facilities, and it would be very difficult to “attack” with a conventional military style operation from the primitive races on planet earth at that time. In fact if the earth did NOT have a stable moon and one needed such a facility as a way-station between earth and the nearby planetary bodies comprising that ancient civilization, you might want to park one there.

    1. I believe I made it clear in my article that I thought determining the water’s exact composition was quite reasonable. That was the point of my high octane speculation.

        OC: As our good doctor wrote in….I think it was one of the Cosmic War books….the debate about whether humans evolved spontaneously or were designed by an intelligent source is over; the discussion now is about who is the intelligent designer.
        The same can be said for the moon. The debate over whether it is a natural or an artificial satellite is over. The question now is, who parked it there? But I wouldn’t put our buffoonish attorney general on the case, that’s for sure; he can’t even tell the difference between a plant and a drug.

        1. Yes, Trump is looking weaker and weaker to the point of appearing “they” have something on him, and he only has himself to blame for hiring some of the losers he has hired. Obviously, they have something on Sessions or he is just plain stupid, and I don’t think that is the case. He has just been in the swamp to long and is filthy dirty like everyone else that has been there more than 2 years. Look for two more sleazes to move into the white house(small case intended) before long…… pence and ryan. db

    1. Phil the Thrill

      While the article is informative, it is a bit inflammatory; I wouldn’t describe Medvedev’s comment regarding the sanctions as “invective”. It certainly is astute; Mr. M points out that our deep state has “humiliated” Trump, on its way to the ultimate goal of removing him from office, because all “non-systemic players must be removed” from the US governmental apparatus.
      I do agree with the author of the article regarding Trump’s twitter habit. It is wholly beneath the dignity required of a head of state. Using twitter to sarcastically thank Congress for “forcing” Trump to sign the sanctions bill marks a new low for public behavior of a sitting president, for it indicates not only his impotence, but his cowardice.
