Why would NASA really crash the probes on the Dark Side of the Moon of all places…
Two splats, actually.
Ebb and Flow, two space probes the size of washing machines that have been orbiting the moon and measuring its gravity field, performed an orchestrated death plunge, crashing into the body’s dark side.
The exercise was not for the advance of science, but rather something of a garbage-disposal operation, to make sure that the probes—which are running out of fuel—do not come to rest in a historically significant place, like on Neil Armstrong’s footprints.
The moon has been affronted this way many times, especially during the space race of the 1960s, but Read more…
The moon’s gravitational impact on the earth, especially between February and April this year, coincides with the latest cluster of major earthquakes.
Lunar perigree is when the moon’s orbit is closest to the earth, as on 19th March 2011, but a proxigean cycle is even stronger.
This occurs when the moon is closest in orbit to the Earth, (this year between March 18th and 21st), and also in its new or full Moon phase.
Present proxigean cycle has maximum effect
This proxigean cycle is when the moon Read more…
