Mr. G.K. found this article, and given today's "space emphasis", I wanted to elaborate on my high octane speculations about this one:
There's a key to what China is up to in this article:
China's space base in Argentina's Patagonia is making Washington feel unease amid Beijing's consistent expansion in Latin America, once considered the US' backyard.
"The isolated base is one of the most striking symbols of Beijing's long push to transform Latin America and shape its future for generations to come - often in ways that directly undermine the United States' political, economic and strategic power in the region," remarked Ernesto Londono, an editorial writer for The New York Times.
However, according to Gustavo Cardozo, an analyst at the Argentine Center for International Studies (CAEI), the Chinese endeavor is pursuing far more ambitious goal: Beijing is seeking to become a major space power.
"China has a very serious intention to go into space and compete strategically with the United States," Cardozo told Sputnik Mundo. "This military base allows not only to control outer space, because the Argentine Patagonia and southern Chile are very good regions in terms of visualizing the cosmos."
The construction of the Chinese base for deep space research in Argentina was negotiated between the government of the country's former President Christina Fernandez de Kirchner (2007-2015) and the administration of Chinese President Xi Jinping. The 50-year contract was officially signed in April 2014 and was approved by the Argentinian parliament in February 2015.
The installation started operating in March 2018. According to The New York Times, the station plays a pivotal role in Beijing's bold endeavor to kick off "an expedition to the far side of the moon." (Emphasis added)
This is entirely correct, and adds some "spice" to what is transpiring vis-a-vis the Moon. China, as the italicized portion of the quotation notes, is planning a mission to land a probe on the far side of the Moon. There are any number of anomalous features on the side of the Moon and one primary candidate for such a mission might be Tsiolkovsky Crater, which demonstrates some highly anomalous features, even suggestive of structure and artificiality. But whatever China's motivations, the landing of a probe on the far side of the Moon will require an elaborate communications relay system, including communications satellites in orbit around the Moon to be able to maintain communications with any such probes. This comes in the same time frame that German companies have announced plans to build out a 4G network on the Moon.
Needless to say, the conjunction of these two things have my mind entertaining all sorts of high octane speculation, namely that these two things - the Chinese base in Patagonia, and the German 4G lunar plan - might be connected in some fashion as yet to be revealed. Those who have read my books, particularly The Nazi International, will recall that I have argued that Patagonia is a region fairly well infested with post-war Nazis and research projects of a bizarre and exotic nature. Additionally, the Estancia, a large post-war region virtually a "Nazi state within a state" existed in that area for some time, and according to some, still exists. The presence of the Chinese base in this region suggests to my mind that it would not have been allowed without "permission," and that this permission may have come with some covert strings attached.
There's another factor at work in my high octane speculation here as well. In various books, beginning with The SS Brotherhood of the Bell, I've been arguing that the Apollo lunar missions may not have occurred without a covert deal between those "Patagonian veterans" and their fellow countrymen in NASA. Specifically, I've speculated that the "deal" which was worked out may have been the exchange of access to some sort of exotic Nazi technology - a development of the Bell perhaps - to allow us to get to and from the Moon, in return to access to data of whatever we found there. In that respect, I've concentrated upon the presence of Kurt Debus as senior flight director of Project Apollo at Cape Canaveral, and that Debus, far from being a rocket scientist was a plasma physicist, and one moreover with clear connections to the Bell project. And over the years, there certainly has been some suggestive data, implying that "something" anomalous was known about the Moon prior to those missions, and that anomalies may have been documented by Project Apollo. The problem for the "Patagonian veterans" - if my "secret deal" scenario is correct - is that the USA, after Apollo 17, did not go back, and has not been back for decades. If one is wanting access to "anomalous data" this is tantamount to letting a contract lapse, or go into default. Hence, one will look for a new "partner" that intends to go to the Moon, and cut a deal.
China, for example.
Ok... it's wild and woolly speculation to be sure, and with only two dots to connect here, I'm fully confident that I've stepped off the end of the twig. But here as always, time will tell, and perhaps add more confirming information, or information contraindicating my speculation.
See you on the flip side...
