How YOU Could Find Aliens on the Moon

Updated on March 3, 2013

The Moon

According to the Huffington Post, Physicists Paul Davies and Robert Wagner of Arizona State University are looking for volunteers to help them look for signs of an alien visit to the Moon.

Since 2009 the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has apparently taken over 340,000 photos of the lunar surface.

In a science paper published by these physicians in Acta Astronautica, an on line journal, they say that it would be impossible for any one team to scrutinize all these photos in detail.

The volunteers would be required to patiently study each photo for signs that aliens may have once been on the Moon’s surface. These signs could include left over artifacts, signs of mining or even tracks left on the surface.

Although they admit that the chances of finding something are very low, they maintain that if the costs of the research are kept low, then where is the harm in looking.

The logic behind this research is that scientists believe that if aliens have visited our Solar System, then it was probably some time in our ancient past.

If this were the case then any evidence that may have been left behind perhaps thousands of years ago, would have certainly disappeared from the surface of any of the planets in our system.

The Moon however is different.

Because of the atmospheric conditions on the Moon any evidence, such as scrapes in the sand, could remain intact, undisturbed for millions of years, therefore still be visible today.


Although I believe that aliens may have visited us at some time, even if it was in our past, I am not so certain as to whether this research would be a waste of time or not.

In general terms, I think their logic is sound and is a good suggestion. My concerns however are caused by other sources.

Firstly I suspect that something will happen to stop this research from taking place.

Many people think that authorities have already found evidence of alien visitors to the Moon and Mars, if not Earth. If this is the case then these authorities, for their own reasons, have kept this information secret. Therefore they would not appreciate someone else “letting the cat out of the bag”. So, if this research were allowed to be continued, I suspect that the same authorities would take over the project to ensure that they had control of the results.

Secondly, I believe that if the research was allowed to continue, anything found would be discredited by the authorities, who could easily claim tampering as the photos were not kept in a controlled area or under strict computer security.

Personally, I am more optimistic than the physicians that something would be found. It is just that I do not believe that the world would be allowed to be privy to anything that was found.

Call me a skeptic but to me, considering the millions of dollars that are spent on these probes, we, the public, get to hear very little about what they actually find. The authorities through the media just seem to hype us up at the fact that the mission was a success and allow this hype to distract us from what the mission’s actual goals were.

      This is from Not sure how reliable it is:

      According to a former NASA employee Otto Binder, unnamed radio hams with their own VHF receiving facilities that bypassed NASA's broadcasting outlets picked up the following exchange:

      NASA: What's there? Mission Control calling Apollo 11...

      Apollo: These "Babies" are huge, Sir! Enormous! OH MY GOD! You wouldn't believe it! I'm telling you there are other spacecraft out there, lined up on the far side of the crater edge! They're on the Moon watching us!

      Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin came forward a few years ago and admitted to several news networks that they definitely found and retrieved many artifacts while on the moon. They were ultimately written off as being stricken with some weird "space illness." Several other retired astronauts have also admitted to collecting what could only be described as ancient extraterrestrial artifacts.

      The Brookings Institute in 1959 suggested that very premise when commissioned by the newly formed space agency NASA as to provide information on what might be expected by exploring Space.

      NASA had one goal and one goal only to find and retrieve any and all artifacts left behind on the Moon or Mars by advanced Alien civilizations and they did just that.

      Artifacts left on the Moon have been known for well over a 100 years, the public thinks we haven't been back since 1972 but I got news for you on that note.

      Nice! The trend of "citizen science" is exciting :).

      I think they are with us now: an alien force, predatory, sociopathic, cunningly twisting our laws and manipulating our systems; greedy determined to suck us dry and then go away.

      We just know them as bankers
