Icon27 Dark Mission: The Secret History of NASA

Quote:
For most Americans, the word NASA suggests a squeaky-clean image of technological infallibility.

Yet the truth is that NASA was born in a lie, and has concealed the truths about its occult origins. Dark Mission documents this seemingly wild assertion.

Why is the Bush administration intent on returning to the moon as quickly as possible? What are the reasons for the current “space race” with China, Russia, even India? Remarkable images reproduced within this book provided to author Richard C. Hoagland by disaffected NASA employees provide clues why, including information about suppressed lunar discoveries.

Mystical organizations quietly dominate NASA, carrying out their own secret agendas behind the scenes. This is the story of men at the very fringes of rational thought and conventional wisdom, operating at the highest levels of our country. Their policies are far more aligned with ancient religions and secret mystery schools than the facade of rational science NASA has successfully promoted to the world for almost fifty years.

Dark Mission is proof of the secret history of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the astonishing, seminal discoveries it has repeatedly suppressed for decades.

Mr. "Mars Face" is back again.

Here's Bad Astronomy's take on the subject.

What a pity: I'd have much more enjoyed a real story about the secret -- and real! -- military satellite launches from both rockets and the shuttle.

Of course, there would probably not be enough to make up a full book, given that a lot of the payload details would still be classified... But even so, it would be interesting to read the "human interest" angle: who makes the decisions, what the security arrangements are, how the press is handled, what the public is told, etc.

Ya right, we are trying to return "as quickly as possible", hence we are spending a tiny fraction on the current missions that we did during the Apollo era. The current "sapce race" is about as competitive as a county fair baking contest.

If there is a secret organization with obscure motives they really need to work on the amount of money they are getting into the space program.
