On Saving The Moon
Note: Published originally in 2012, the discussion of the Apollo Program’s percussion impact study was buried in NASA and never publicly discussed. In 2014, things opened up and the conversation resumed. I believe this article hastened that thawing. JSBIII
Thousands of years ago, we accepted that the same portion of the Moon’s surface is in view for all moments. It has been known for so long that everybody has forgotten to ask ‘Why?’
A few hundred years ago, we determined the orbit of the Moon to be very stable. We also determined that compared to the other planets, Earth’s Moon is huge for the size of our planet, and in a closer-than-usual orbit. Though the Earth is a smallish planet, our Moon is the third-largest in the solar system.
Forty years ago we learned the Moon is hollow. It was announced by NASA and re-transmitted through the televised Apollo Mission Control coverage – I heard anchorman Walter Cronkite of CBS tell us.
In the last twenty years, we have determined that the Moon was created when a large chunk of very cold space debris collided with the then-molten, primitive Earth. The chunk either continued through the Earth or the collision was only skimming along its surface one or more time. The collision slowed the chunk and captured it in orbit around the Earth.
In the last ten years, we have detected sodium vapor trailing the Moon. The Moon is continuously releasing sodium, as vapor.
In the last year or so, descriptions have expanded about the electrostatic properties of the Moon’s surface – of Moon dust and its invasive characteristics. It gets into everything. It clings with ferocity, using heavy electrostatic charges.
Where do these facts lead? Consider that the huge chunk of space debris was really very cold as it hit the very hot, molten Earth. Our Moon is now traveling about one Kilometer per second, so if the chunk had been traveling at about the same speed as today, it traversed the molten Earth in about 12,000 to 14,000 seconds (less than four hours). It was only inside the Earth for a brief moment, and not enough to thaw the chunk. As the chunk traveled through, or gouged the Earth, it gathered a coating of Earth material on its surface, and then departed with that coating intact. The Apollo Moon Rocks exactly duplicate our planet’s crust.
The chunk and its coating entered orbit around the Earth and cooled. As the two components contracted, the outside regions of the chunk shrunk faster than the coating, which created a composite Moon. Inside the Moon is that original chunk of space debris, covered with a shell we know is made of Earth material. They are separate bodies, with the shell floating around the core.
Physics of orbital stability make it clear that core is spinning relatively fast. Consider that the Moon is closer by far than most moons in the solar system, and its size relative to the Earth is huge when compared to the solar system’s moons. This center core provides the stability to maintain such a close orbit.
The coating shell had developed one very heavy spot, and the gravitational pull of the Earth eventually forced that heavy spot to settle as the portion of the shell closest to Earth at all moments. The shell of the Moon rotates once every twenty-eight days which is the period of the Moon’s orbit. Its apparently slow spin is a clear and telling property to affirm that the Moon is hollow and there is a faster spinning core inside.
The presentation of the Moon’s surface to us shows that the shell wobbles over time: about 68% of the Moon’s surface is visible to us, which is more than the 50% which would be shown were the Moon solid.
Tidal forces between the Moon and the Earth have crushed much of the surface features on the side facing us to mild smoothness. The back side is a jumbled mess in comparison. This dramatic difference demonstrates that the rotational condition has been in place for a very long time.
During the time between the formation of the Moon and today, collisions between the shell of the Moon and its space debris core have been buffered and lubricated by sodium. As we developed early atomic reactors, we discovered sodium is an excellent high-temperature and high pressure lubricant. Westinghouse Nuclear began with sodium-cooled power reactors after trying many other substances. The specific heat quotient of sodium and its high ductility permit it to cool faster than all the inner parts of the atomic reactor system while slipping into microscopic crevices in the metal bearing surfaces.
Like the high pressures and temperatures of man-made atomics, the working relationship between the Moon’s shell and its core required a lubricant and cooling medium. The presence of sodium has minimized the destructive forces generated by each collision between the core and its shell. In recent centuries, this need has probably been low, as the stable Moon has few reasons for its two components to collide. In early history, however, the ability to cool hot spots and lubricate the grinding points may have been essential to the overall success of the system.
In summary, the Moon has two parts – space-debris core surrounded by a shell of Earth material. The core has been ground into a sphere that spins somewhat fast, while the shell is spinning only once every twenty-eight days. A cavity between these parts is filled with sodium. The sodium is under pressure and is escaping as vapor, which trails the Moon. When required, it acts as a lubricant during collisions and as a heat exchange material to diffuse local effects of frictional heat when they do collide.
Consider that the Moon has become a huge generator of static electricity. Two bodies in close proximity with one spinning, can produce a fierce level of static charge. Until recently, those who wrote about the nuisance of the surface dust tended to understate the problem from fear of disbelief. Consider that the center of the Moon could represent more than half of its mass, so there are two bodies in space with one wrapped around the other. The potential for static charge generation is remarkable, and it is applied evenly across the shell’s surface.
What is not said by scientists is that the static charge system of the Moon is a primary manner for the shell to heal itself from impact. The surface clearly shows result of spectacular collisions, yet the Moon’s shell is intact. I assert that the electrostatic system is very delicate, and that the destruction of that electrostatic system will permit the Moon’s shell to be crushed.
My model shows the electrostatic system works like a shock absorber for space rocks. As the meteorite travels into the surface, it displaces the dust and small rocks on a mass-to-mass ratio, but these particles are held in suspension by the electrostatic charges, so the work required by the meteorite to continue its travel into the shell requires it to displace the mass of dust and rocks from its path, but to more an effort, the invader must overcome the electrostatic patterns within the set of particles. The larger the devastation created by the meteor’s impact, the more profound is the response by the electrostatic pattern system to buffer its effect and spread the load across a broad surface. This is why we observe large, shallow craters on the Moon’s surface when compared to the meteorite craters on Earth, and these are evidence that the electrostatic system is at work to distribute the impact across a huge area. On Earth, the impact craters are small diameter and very deep, while the Moon’s craters are very shallow and spread across the surface.
The Moon meteorite is slowed by the initial impact to the fields, and as it travels deeper, the fields of the shell twist it and manipulate its path to retard progress. The result is a very rapid slowing of every meteorite, the expansion of the affected impact area to represent a large section of the lunar surface to distribute the force, and a continued slowing by the effect of electrostatic fields and their integration of the existing dust and particles in the lunar shell. Not only is the meteorite moving aside mass, but also moving aside very large fields of power generated continually by the Moon itself, restored at the speed of electricity. For those bodies fast enough to penetrate the shell, electrostatics can also help to patch the hole, reducing the effects and preserving the sodium.
About twenty-five years ago, I decided that I would believe NASA’s announcement that the Moon was hollow, despite a press conference held the following day when a NASA senior official informed us all that the data had been misread, and that the Moon was actually not hollow. In 2009, the US military and NASA announced plans to detonate an atomic explosion on the lunar surface; this announcement and the subsequent crash of a missile into the bottom of a large crater, indicate that the senior Apollo-era official had lied.
The 2009 impact was used to broadcast a pulse read by many receivers placed on the Moon’s surface to measure the thickness of the shell and the size of the core. It is even possible that some monitors were used to measure how fast the core spins. This viewpoint is supported by the locus chosen for the missile impact – the center point of a huge crater. Since this locus was directly struck by a huge piece of space debris, the texture of the Moon’s shell has been disrupted, with faults and huge chunks of debris to distort and dampen sonic/seismic transmission. I have helped to design ultrasonic transducers, and it is my expert opinion that to send readable sonic patterns across the Moon’s surface, almost any other impact site would be better than the center of a crater. These people were only looking down. The viewpoint is also supported by the extent to which the science community is promoting drilling into the Moon in the first set of new explorations of the Moon. Did you imagine that I was the only person with this knowledge?
So how does this relate to you? Human technology has the ability to install devices on the shell of the Moon that will harvest electrical energy from the spinning core below. We place these devices and get free energy. How much? There is enough there with today’s technology to power all of man’s exploration to the solar system for at least three hundred years, maybe five hundred. Let me be more specific: there is enough power in the Moon’s spinning core to power the departure of every vehicle and probe that the human race could imagine to be worthwhile for the next three hundred years. If we choose to be frugal in any way, it could last five hundred years. The Moon is our stepping stone to the solar system.
In the last twenty years we have defined a magnetic mechanism called a ‘Rail Gun’, which uses magnetic fields to move iron and steel objects without touching them. In the last ten years, we have reached the point where we typically use them to propel roller coaster rides. Huge magnets routinely pull five tons of cars carrying screaming riders to over sixty miles per hour in less than five seconds. In 2012, the US Navy is testing a model rail gun they expect to routinely launch a fifty pound ball of steel a distance of over one hundred miles, with a discharge velocity of 5000 mile per hour.
This technology has been developed to provide the propulsion system for space craft leaving the Moon. In the next twenty years, it is reasonable for us to have launched seven-to-twenty thousand basketball-sized probes at the most promising of our nearby asteroids. The ‘Deuce Probes’ will leave the Moon’s surface at roughly twenty times the speed of sound using technology we have today. The electricity to drive the Rail Guns will come from the spinning core of the Moon.
Already, the Obama Administration is setting the tools in motion to launch a ‘Lunar Omnibus’ which would continuously travel between orbiting the Earth and orbiting the Moon. Rail Guns will launch ‘Lunar Taxis’ up to the traveling Omnibus, bringing material and people between Omnibus and the Moon.
With this system in place, we will be moving humans onto the planets in the next twenty years. The asteroids will be mined within twenty years. We will be able to reach out to the resources of a solar system using a free transportation system provided when the solar system was formed.
There is a problem. Humans have intended to explode atomic bombs on the Moon’s surface. Either they are naïve to what damage they are to do or they are too stupid to care. Every atomic explosion produces the famous Electromagnetic Pulse, which confuses electrical and electronics in a sphere around the explosion here on Earth. On the Moon, this Electromagnetic Pulse dissolves the electrostatic matrix present in the shell. As each bomb goes off, the Moon’s shell beneath it loses its defense against the blast. These foolish humans point to the huge impact craters on the Moon and say their atomic bombs do not manifest the same severity. I hope I have shown you that they are lying, probably even to themselves. The Moon is far more fragile than the Earth, and atomic explosions are poised to destroy it.
As it ages, the Moon is slowly losing its sodium through leakage; the Moon is losing its lubrication system. So, every atomic blast could fracture the shell more, releasing sodium vapor at a faster rate, until the Moon cannot remain intact.
Think of the future of mankind, and the potential to reach into the solar system I have shown the Moon to be. What if we destroy this system with atomic bombs? The shell gets cracked more with each explosion until it finally deteriorates. The lubrication system bleeds out into space so that it can no longer keep the shell’s inner surface from colliding with the core, so the shell cracks more. As the shell’s integrity disappears, the shell is pulverized by the gravity tides and by grinding against the core. Ultimately, it becomes a set of particles, spreading out in the Moon’s orbit – a ring.
This set of particles will make space travel through them very hazardous. We will lose our stepping stone to the solar system, and the dust we will have created in its place shall make travel beyond the Moon far more difficult. We will be stuck on Earth.
Do you want to see the Moon crushed by foolish humans? Is there any need to explode atomic bombs on the Moon? I believe that the United States military does not have the right to destroy the future of humanity simply to demonstrate the command’s disregard.
My conclusion is that I must ask you, the readers, to contact an authority – the United Nations and your country’s government. Demand a halt to all atomic detonations on the Moon. I believe that if this is done immediately, the continued study of the Moon will confirm my model.
There may not be one additional lunar atomic blast for the remainder of humanity. Thank You.
