The moon is just a strange anomaly, something that big should not be orbiting the earth. It isn’t naturally found in the universe for a planet the size of Earth to have a Moon that large. Besides, the moon should not “ring like a bell”.
I also believe (after we developed the atomic bomb) we were consequentially told to not return to space “or else...” This would explain why we never left earth’s orbit for 40 years. Even Russia decided to stop going beyond the Earth’s hemisphere. Yet, we have technologically advanced on so many other levels. But we haven’t advanced any further than sending a man to the moon. Traveling up to our hemisphere to a “space station” and back is not technically space travel. And think of how much more advanced we are since the 1968, with cell phones and battery cells. Yet the (worldwide government’s) space community appear to have no real drive to go beyond the moon’s orbit. Weird huh? Yet, with 1960’s technology we can go to the moon and back.
With that thought processes you have to wonder, why?
There is no better way to explore than 'hands on'.
Did the world’s government decide, we just weren’t a match against an alien technology that could take over our missile silos?
Hopefully one day the truth will come out.
