Did the Apollo 20 mission really happen? This article takes a look at the history of claims that it did.
I watched “Aliens on the Moon” on the Destination America channel, yesterday. I must say the two-hour episode was most interesting. I could see where serious research was undertaken, yet one thing stood out that could not be denied. It was still speculative. Until we can get up close to touch, photograph, and explore, it should not be construed as irrefutable evidence.
When it got to the part about William Rutledge, I did a little digging…hoax, in my humble opinion (IMHO). Of course, being human, I could be wrong; however, what follows makes me think I am not. The presentation of evidence was professional and compelling, but it was not substantiated beyond the shadow of a doubt. Yes, a search of NASA Apollo mission patches came up positive up to Mission 20; however, no mission was flown past 1972. The claims of finding an alien (named Moona Lisa) in an old, crashed spacecraft, as well as, spacecraft images have been debunked as models. Stanley Kubrick actually took pictures of the Apollo 11 spacecraft interior and could have been used in the production of the Apollo 20 mission claims.
The Saturn V was the only rocket booster capable of freeing man and materiel past earth orbit. 1 was used to lift Skylab into orbit and 12 were used for the manned moon missions. Except for Apollo 13, which had to abort due to an oxygen module explosion, missions 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, and 17 did successfully land on the moon.
The launch of a Saturn V rocket could be heard and seen for miles around. Further, a launch from Vandenberg AFB from the California central coast would have raised eyebrows of many area inhabitants. Vandenberg AFB does launch more satellites into orbit than the Kennedy Space Center; however, its facility has not and is not adapted for the launch of such a large vehicle.
The following is a video of the Apollo 8 launch:
The concept that we could have so secretly sent a three man crew is beyond the words fantastic and believable. NASA astronaut, Leona Snyder is determined as fictitious after extended searches, I could find no evidence of her existence. Alexei Leonov is now 82 years of age and has quite a remarkable history. Although, he was busy in 1975 linking Russian space craft with the Americans in earth orbit, his activities in no way show where he was on the moon in 1976.
On one of my trips to Cape Canaveral, Florida, in the summer of 1991, I found present assessments of why we did not continue the moon missions was mostly financial…NASA had no money and the morale of personnel was quite low. Upon query about alien artifacts or other evidence being found, the response was consistent. Nothing had been found and they hoped it would be different.
Now, in 2017, we are still viewing quite speculative videos in TV media. What amazes me is how the sensationalism prevails over concrete evidence. If it were not for my personal observations, I’d be so done with this stuff. If it is entertainment over evidence the public desires, then, what may come of all this?
Further, what will happen if it turns out proof we are not alone becomes fact. Although, it would not faze me in the least, I contend that the prevalent consideration of worldwide panic would be more correct.
