This story was spotted and shared by G.B., and the reason I'm blogging about it is...well, deja vu and "here we go again."   It turns out that Chinese and Japanese space scientists are a bit baffled because once again the Moon and Mars are up to some hijinks that regular readers of my books and of this website will readily recognize(with apologies to Tucker Carlson for citing the Faux News version of this story):

Moon mystery: China, Japan scientists have no answers for mysterious space gear disappearances

So here's what's going on with the Moon and the Japanese:

China and Japan have addressed mysterious circumstances around disappearing space equipment, including a lunar lander that would have completed Japan’s potential first successful moon landing.

"It has been determined that there is a high probability that the lander eventually made a hard landing on the moon’s surface," Takeshi Hakamanda, founder and CEO of Japanese spaceflight company Ispace, said of the venture.

The company clarified shortly after that engineers had observed that the remaining propellant in the Hakuto-R spacecraft may have been "at the lower threshold and shortly afterward the descent speed rapidly increased," the New York Times reported.


The final determination was based on the fact that the company lost communications with the craft. An investigation will uncover why the spacecraft apparently misjudged the altitude, with analysis indicating the lander was still high up when it should have been on the ground.

And here's what's going on with Mars and the Chinese:

However, China has had some difficulty with its own space operations: Beijing this week finally spoke out about the disappearance of its Zhurong Mars rover, which stopped communicating in May 2022.

"We have not had any communication from the rover since it entered hibernation," Zhang Rongqiao, chief designer of China’s Mars exploration program, said. "We are monitoring it every day and believe it has not woken up because the sunlight has not yet reached the minimum level for power generation."

A pile-up of dust could have impacted the rover’s power charging capabilities and thus prevented the rover from waking up after entering hibernation, The Independent reported.

A NASA probe was able to locate the rover thanks to onboard camera equipment, confirming that the rover had not moved since at least September.

My first reaction when reading his was to shrug my shoulders and say out loud to my little dog, "Here we go again, Shiloh." She wagged her tail in response.

A little explanation is in order for those who may not have read my books and blogs in detail. Regarding the Moon, I pointed out in my book The SS Brotherhood of the Bell, that early American and Soviet space probes had a very dubious track record when it came to trying to land on the Moon. Some probes just flew right by our neighboring planet, and others smacked into it and were destroyed, and in a special case (Surveyor 4), disappeared in a very weird way, which provoked an unusual hypothetical explanation from space researcher Richard C. Hoagland. So what was going on? Why so many space probe losses in the early years of Russian and American space exploration until both powers "got it right"?   My high octane speculation at the time was, and remains, that the public figures for the gravity of the Moon are off and inaccurate. It was, after all, Sir Isaac Newton who is reputed to have said "The Moon is the only thing that gives me a headache." Well it should, because along any normal gravitational explanation, it shouldn't be there doing what it's doing. Under either the "capture" model or the "earth-fission" model, its orbit should be far more elliptical than it really is(it's a nearly perfectly circular orbit), and under those models, the fact that one face if permanently "locked" into position facing the Earth would also be unlikely. The best explanation, believe it or not,  for why it's there doing what it's doing is that someone parked it there. Which brings us back to all those messed up early lunar probes that went flying by the Moon or crashing into it, when they were intended to soft land on it.  Misunderstanding of the accurate gravitational acceleration of the Moon would definitely lead to such accidents.  It would be analogous to a pilot dialing in the wrong atmospheric pressure in the controls of an aircraft. With the wrong pressure, the altimeters in the aircraft will not be accurate, and the pilot will not know exactly how high the aircraft is off the ground. Such inaccuracies actually have led to the occasional aircraft disaster, and inaccurate understanding of the Moon's gravity would have a similar effect on the trajectory of probes.

Which brings us to the loss of Surveyor 4, an early American lunar probe designed to softland on the lunar surface.  As Richard C. Hoagland described the event and speculated during a presentation to an audience at the University of Ohio many years ago, all the telemetry of Surveyor 4 indicated that it was on course for a soft landing on the Moon. It was, indeed, backing down toward the surface of the Moon and all indicators were that it was a few hundred feet from making a soft landing on the surface, when suddenly, all communication - literally all telemetry - from the probe suddenly and inexplicably ceased, and nothing further was ever heard from it. Hoagland's explanation is both simple, ingenious, and somewhat arresting, for he speculates that the probe simply hit something more or less "invisible" but solid, and suspended above the surface of the Moon, something like a glass dome. Glass on the Moon would be both incredibly hard, and very difficult to see or detect. Surveryor 4 had, in other words, literally backed into a building that could not be seen. As a result, while the telemetry of the probe - which is traveling at the speed of light - continued to be broadcast by the probe even as it fell apart, the direction of the beam from its antennae was suddenly knocked out of position, and thus to sensors on Earth, appeared to disappear all at once, and quite suddenly. To quote Mr. Hoagland's explanation, "It just went splat!"

My point in rehearsing all of this is to suggest that perhaps the loss of the Japanese probe might be because of one of these two factors: either they were not privy to real measures of the lunar gravitational acceleration where they were attempting to land, and hence were like the pilot trying to land an aircraft with inaccurate barometric pressure readings and hence inaccurate altitude readings, or the Japanese probe, like Surveyor 4, may have inadvertently backed into one of Mr. Hoagland's hypothesized lunar domes.

Either way one chooses to explain it, we've been here before.

Which leaves us with the "hibernating" Chinese Mars probe, which, we're told by the article, might have gone dead because of a "pile up of dust" on the probe's solar panels, inhibiting its "power charging capabilities." Now, if you've been paying attention to Mars and Mars probes all these years, you'll recall a very similar incident occurred years ago to an American probe, which, we were told, had gone dead because it was unable to recharge because its solar panels had accumulated too much dust during a dust storm to do so.  A few months went by, and all of a sudden NASA informed everyone that its "dead" probe had inexplicably "woken up" again. NASA's explanation was a classic: the probe recharged because wind had blown the dust off the solar panels, which was the same explanation of why it died in the first place, that wind had blown dust onto its solar panels. Apparently the Martian wind is capable of very strange behavior, being able both to clog, and then clean, solar panels.  The explanation, while a classic study of circular and mutually contradictory reasoning for which NASA is justifiably infamous, was a lot more comforting than the thought that Marvin the Martian happened to spot the dusty probe, and being the kind-hearted if somewhat mischievous Martian that the cartoons portray him to be, cleaned off the panels with a bottle of Windex and some paper towels.

But either way one chooses to explain that, we've been here before, too.

See you on the flip side...

    More details about the Soviet Union’s Luna 15 spacecraft which crashed on the Moon after Apollo 11 left.

    No one knows what happened to NASA’s Eagle Ascent Module. After Apollo 11 left the Moon, it remained in orbit and apparantly – according to NASA, eventually its orbit decayed and it crashed somewhere on the Moon!
    However, just recently some astrophysicists have postulated that Eagle Ascent Module may still be in Lunar orbit. And should be able to be detectable by radar.

    It is fascinating to note that the Russian Luna 15 spacecraft crashed on the Moon and was unable to return a lunar sample just after Apollo 11 left the Moon.
    NASA was worried about Luna 15, though not because the mission threatened to overshadow Apollo 11 or get in its way. Rather, the concern was that it might disrupt the agency’s communications with the Apollo 11 crew. If Luna 15’s orbit was too close to Apollo 11, NASA said it was possible it could interfere with the radio signals between Mission Control in Houston and the Apollo spacecraft.

    “Who Built The Moon” by Knight and Butler has many interesting facts and stats re: Moon, it’s relation to earth and sun , and Isaac Asimov said the fact that the Moon can totally eclipse the
    Sun, cover the entire disk, “the most unlikely coincidence imaginable”

    • eddyminimum on May 6, 2023 at 4:34 pm

      Could the fact that the Moon can totally eclipse the Sun, cover the entire disk, be an earth-saving shield during a catastrophic solar blast, micro-nova, etcetera?

      • Wu Wu on May 6, 2023 at 7:44 pm

        Fascinating. But “someone” would have had to plan for that, wouldn’t they?

        • Richard on May 7, 2023 at 5:48 pm

          . . . Wondered about that, too.

    “The best explanation for the Moon is observational error – the Moon does not exist!”
    Irwin Shapiro, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

    • Richard on May 7, 2023 at 5:47 pm

      Professor Shapiro makes it sound so easy and it probably would be the best explanation if there wasn’t a visual stimulus in the form of reflected Sunlight coming from it. The noticeable and occasional occlusion of Sunlight by it during broad daylight that once drew great panic by unwitting observers of the great dimming would take some convincing that it had not been the cause.

    In one’s view, your brief explanation of inaccurate calculations rang like a [Bell] when expectations did not meet up with causality for the probes.
    . . . . .
    Instead of bumping into a ‘glass dome’ or something undetected, specially grown crystal, with unique characteristics endemic to planet or moon satellite, could supplant any undetectable glass formations. Probably, do a better job, too. The Others, who probably know how to grow crystal in a multitude of environments each acquiring unique characteristics, tune them for purpose, and know how to tune and construct them for individual uses might have had something to do with miscalculations. What was calculated upon was not what was actually there, in a manner of speaking. At any rate, plenty of ignorance to go round.

    They might do better if they learn how to land on an aircraft carrier while at sea moving up and down this way and that as they lose safe altitude doing so. Out there one has to account for other moving forces and exertions than just piloting remotely a craft with an immobile or unyielding trajectory. Probably good to have good and accurate intelligence and more useful reconnaissance, too, about where one is going if unable to build it into the craft itself.

    As you speculated in several of your interviews with increasing data from university about the Giza pyramidal structure usage, the Others probably [navigate] space / time they are apparent rather than point and move toward a destination taking into consideration much torsion action of spiraling motion and the movement of many other moving forces and energies at the same period of impulse. Overcoming inertia seems a bit tricky. A lot of permutations in one’s view. Not surprising as the Others do not seem to be fettered by linear confinements or the physics to date of this upright simian type.

    One has reservations on the much spoken of [Tuaoi Stone] (specially constructed crystal and with subunits hidden, most likely in good keeping) and will hold those speculations close to the vest (so to speak) since one does not have one of them to interact with presently or demonstrate.

    The well-known pyramidal construct might have been a most potent device to conquer before becoming inert leaving mostly masterfully engraved measurements to titillate the imagination, but it is all those incremental subunits of Fz and various collations that spark this explorer that might still be possible beyond wreaking havoc.

    Has China published any photos of the USA Eagle Landers left on the Moon or any of the NASA Lunar Rovers left behind from the Apollo missions? Please can any GDS members post links. I would like to see Chinese evidence that the USA went to the Moon. Need independent verification – not NASA photos and video.

    Just how many space programs are there?
    Let’s call some public.
    And, “others” private.
    Let’s assume the very private ones, know a hell of a lot more than the public ones.
    So much so; that they’ve become a power unto themselves.
    Now, let’s take a HUGE step; outside of Earthly knowledge.
    Are these numerous space programs closely “watched”?
    Under tight CONTROL?
    Galactic in scope[at the very least]?
    So much so, that it’s getting more expensive; in time and secrecy,
    to keep this program viable, w/in certain agreed-upon guidelines?
    The “Outside” knowledge base,
    has to remain separate, from all “inside” private and public space programs.
    So that the future, space programs, will be way ahead; in technology and intelligence,
    from the “inside knowledge & intelligence-based solar systems”.
    Those w/the “outside” contacts, will remain beyond-belief secret;
    staying w/in agreed-upon galactic script naradigms.

    An extremely deceptive & organized Ent1ty.
    That no one, in his or her right mind; would even begin to dare to imagine…
    How much so?

    The magic of “organized” illusions?

    You forgot to mention the Mars lander Beagle that also crashed that was a UK probe. Which brings up the question of whether the real gravity of the Moon and Mars is higher than reported.

    Hey all, I am a relatively new member of the community, but just got my merch in the mail! I got my first book, “Covert Wars,” and a t shirt for me and a tank top for my wife.
    The T shirt quality is really good! I got the green heather soft t shirt with just the logo. Really happy with the price, quality, and shipping. Just wanted to say the site is awesome!

    Malacandrians, under supervision of Eldila, are studying these robotic probes, coming out of the silent planet, according to sci-fi.

    The Malacandrians ponder, why the silent planet, Thulcandra, grew silent in the first place, which was caused by the Dark Lord.

    Thulcandra is a prison planet, being blockaded by a cosmic cordon sanitaire, to prevent the fallen Eldil from escaping gravity.

    Robotic probes, coming from Thulcandra, are met with cosmic suspicion, as something the cat dragged in.

    • RBG Santa Monica on May 3, 2023 at 5:06 pm

      Perhaps there was something in the composition, or activity, of the Chinese rover that the Oyarsa of Malacandra found objectionable.

        Elohim speaks, at gathering of Oyéresu, the planetary Eldila of the solar system.

        Yahweh speaks, at gathering of men, in Old Solar celebration, at yearly nadir and zenith.

        Seen through sci-fi lense, Elohim and Yahweh become multilayered ideas in Old Solar, the tongue of Eldila.

        These principles are purely astronomical, and transnational in nature, and universally applied.

          BTW, the sinister plot of malice, that produces discord in harmonies, is lack of multipolarity, when prince of thieves usurps a stolen throne.

          The rightful ruler is determined, by a celestial cycle, and the 32-point compass maps the heavenly run for office, by Scythian runes.

          Only those, who are in perfect alignment with Maleldil, can pull a sword from a stone, which is the growing of mustard seeds into heaven.

          In Old Solar, Christ is a Scythian footnote.

          • RBG Santa Monica on May 4, 2023 at 11:19 pm

            That last line has me stumped. I like to imagine that the conversation Ransom has with the Oyarsa at the end of the “Silent Planet” where the Oyarsa says “You have shown me more wonders than are known in the whole of heaven”, that the narrator is not allowed to record, is about Christ on Earth. But I haven’t learned Old Solar so please forgive me.

  11. Michael UK on May 3, 2023 at 5:34 am

    So the questions that beg and I know the little dog wants to ask are:
    “Does Elon Musk understand Deja Vu and has he and his SpaceX leadership team taken all this into account for his Starship landings on the Moon and Mars”.
    “Does Elon Musk possess second sight and intuition”
    “Does Musk 100% trust NASA and their data”
    “Will Musk land the Mars Starship in Cydonia near The Face and the D&M Pyramid (the Pentagon)”.

    • anakephalaiosis on May 3, 2023 at 6:10 am

      Obviously, Elon Musk is being held Ransom, kidnapped by Weston, who is working for the Dark Lord on Twitter, as artificial intelligence robot.
