Scientists look for aliens on the moon

Volunteers are being recruited to help look through thousands of images of the moon's surface.

Physicists Paul Davies and Robert Wagner have proposed a search for alien evidence on the surface of the moon by studying in detail thousands of photographs taken by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. "If it costs little to scan data for signs of intelligent manipulation, little is lost in doing so, even though the probability of detecting alien technology at work may be exceedingly low," they said. Volunteers are being called in to look for any sign at all that aliens might have been to the lunar surface.

"Physicists Paul Davies and Robert Wagner of Arizona State University believe there may be signs of extra terrestrial life in the form of messages, scientific instruments, waste or evidence of mining that could be spotted by human telescopes and orbiting spacecraft."

aliens are on the moon. it was this reason that Nasa has never been back to the moon. hundreds of photographs have taken by Nasa satellite to suggest that there are artificial structures on the moon that are not man-made. look up the disclosure project. Like sweetpumper said - Show us the evidence, and lets evaluate how good it is.

Technology has been moving too fast for us to even keep up for the past decade, yet we haven't been to the moon in 43 years. Weird huh? Unlessss

It sounds like an eminently sensible idea to look at the moon for disturbance of the surface as a sign of ET activity, given the level of preservation over vast time periods in the airless environment. And as I stated in another thread, it seems like an ideal thing for amateurs to become involved in, maybe school students across the globe, given photos of say, a square kilometre or less, for each person to examine, for non-natural distubances. Maybe have 2 or 3 people getting the same patch to look at, so less chance it is missed. Many eyes scanning should get the job done. And if nothing at a... [More]

Looks like the good folk at China's space program are trying to make this enterprise a whole lot easier than it is now.... Cheers.

Unlessss Ok so if man invents his own technology, how come he cant keep up with what he's inventing? maybe we never went again to the moon coz theres F-A there worth going for!! (or as conspiracists like to believe, we have been been back, many times, and built our own bases! ha!) I think the focus on Mars took the energy away from the moon, we been there , done that, now lets move on. If you went to a bar for a drink, found it deserted of folk, no music, no o... [More]

Volunteers are being recruited to help look through thousands of images of the moon's surface. I think the next few decades is when things get interesting. Earth has had the signature of life for billions of years so its entirely plausible that aliens may have been monitoring our planet before humans even evolved. Searching our Solar System for probes is a good idea and the Moon a perfect place to start as it offers the vantage point where the whole world can be monitored. There may also be some surprirses waiting for us. What do we do if we find remains of past human civilization scattered ar... [More]

What do we do if we find remains of past human civilization scattered around the Solar System? well good question, but past human civilisation? I dont think humans or their remains will be found.. the following vid -allegedly from a secret Apollo 20 mission that DID INDEED find alien artifacts, a ship, writing, AND AN ALIEN.. liked to think of a dreadlocked oriental woman as an alien FFW to 4.20 for the alien http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4q-Dl7gvNHM&feature=fvst Now dont get your panties in a bunch its clearly a fake vid. WE wont ever find this evidence, the authorities will and if they ... [More]
