Metaphysical Connection Episode 26
In the first half of the show, Jim Loretta joins us to share with us some of the conspiracies and scientific theories about the moon.
Then Walt Schnabel and Eric Renderking Fisk talk about the Apollo Program, canceled missions, and what NASA could be hiding about what they found on the moon. We also talk about our ultimate dream team that we would send to the moon and explore mysterious regions and artifacts that might be waiting for us there...
So let's get into it, all you lunatics! Thanks for listening and enjoy the show!
Notes & Links
"...indirect evidence for extraterrestrial intelligence could come from any incontrovertible signatures of non-human technology. Existing searchable databases from astronomy, biology, earth and planetary sciences all offer low-cost opportunities to seek a footprint of extraterrestrial technology. In this paper we take as a case study one particular new and rapidly-expanding database: the photographic mapping of the Moon's surface by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) to 0.5 m resolution. Although there is only a tiny probability that alien technology would have left traces on the moon in the form of an artifact or surface modification of lunar features, this location has the virtue of being close, and of preserving traces for an immense duration.
Systematic scrutiny of the LRO photographic images is being routinely conducted anyway for planetary science purposes, and this program could readily be expanded and outsourced at little extra cost to accommodate SETI goals, after the fashion of the SETI@home and Galaxy Zoo projects."
