In July of 1970, two Russian scientists, Mikhail Vasin and Alexander Shcherbakov, published an article in the Soviet journal Sputnik called “Is the Moon the Creation of Alien Intelligence?”
The theory proposed by the two experts offers arguments that would explain the countless enigmas surrounding the moon and its creation.
The moon is one of the most enigmatic objects in our solar system. The Moon’s existent is perfectly defined by Robin Brett, a scientist from NASA who stated that “It seems easier to explain the non-existence of the Moon than its existence.”
By publishing this article, they raised numerous questions about the moon and its formation which no other scientist at the time dared to ask.
Their article received heavy criticism, but they made their point when writing about the moon and its countless mysteries.
The Russian scientific duo proposed the theory that Earth’s Moon is not a natural satellite, but a planetoid that was literally hollowed out eons ago in the far reaches of the universe by super advanced intelligent beings possessing a technology far superior to ours, even today.
Shcherbakov and Vasin proposed that massive machines were used to melt rock and form long cavities within the Moon, spreading the molten refuse onto the lunar surface.
The advanced their theory by saying that the moon was preserved by a hull-like inner shell in addition to a reconstructed outer shell of metallic rocky junk, and eventually, this enormous craft was steered through the cosmos and finally put in orbit around our planet.
Some say this is a preposterous idea, but the two scientists made a point backed by scientific data.
Vasin and Shcerbakov state there are some lunar rocks that have been discovered to contain PROCESSED METALS such as Brass, the elements of Uranium 236 and Neptunium 237. These elements have NEVER been found to occur naturally.
However, somehow there are traces of them on the surface of Moon.
Uranium 236 for example, is a radioactive nuclear waste which is found in spent nuclear and reprocessed Uranium.
More interestingly, Neptunium 237 is a radioactive metallic element and a known by-product of nuclear reactors and the production of Plutonium.
In their article, Vasin and Shcherbakov write:
“Abandoning the traditional paths of ‘common sense,’ we have plunged into what may, at first sight, seem to be unbridled and irresponsible fantasy.”
“But the more minutely we go into all the knowledge gathered by man about the Moon, the more we are convinced that there is not a single fact to rule out our hypothesis. Not only that, but many things so far considered to be lunar enigmas are explainable in the light of this new theory.”
Interestingly, Dr. Farouk El Baz was quoted stating, “There are numerous undiscovered caverns believed to exist beneath the surface of the Moon. Several experiments have been flown to the Moon to see if these caverns were actually real.” Interestingly, the results of these experiments have never been made public.
Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell, while ridiculing the possibility of a hollow moon, admitted that because heavier materials were on the surface, it was possible that MASSIVE caverns exist within the Moon.
MIT’s Dr. Sean C. Solomon added to the mystery of the hollow Moon when he wrote, “The Lunar Orbiter experiments greatly improved our understanding of the Moon’s gravitational field… Presenting the frightening possibility that the Moon might be hollow.”
As outrageous as this moon theory might first seem, take a second and consider how this “unorthodox” model reconciles all of the mysteries of the Moon.
Bearing in consideration the explanation by Vasin and Shcherbakov, it would allow us to explain as to why the Moon gives evidence of being much older than our planet and perhaps even our solar system. It would also help explain why there are three distinct layers within the Moon, with the densest materials being located on the outside layer, exactly as one would expect when looking at the “hull” of a spacecraft.
Furthermore, the above could also explain why no sign of water has been found on the surface of our moon, yet we have found vast evidence it exists deep inside it.
This revolutionary theory would also explain the mystery behind Maria and mascons, what can be considered as the remnants of the machinery used to drill and create a hollow Moon.
The theory that our moon is in fact an artificial satellite could explain the weird—yet rhythmic “moonquakes.”
Interestingly, if the moon really is the result of advanced extraterrestrial “terraforming” than it would provide us with the solution to the long debated argument between the “hot moon” and “cold moon” suggesting experts were both right.
This means that our moon was originally a cold planetoid, which was artificially transformed into a spacecraft by means of artificially heating.
This theory could also help explain the contradictions over the question whether or not Earth satellite is in fact a hollow moon.
If Earth’s Moon was originally a solid planetoid which was artificially hollowed out eons ago, we’d probably have found evidence of both phases—which is precisely what we have with our current Moon knowledge.
Even Isaac Asimov—an American writer and professor of biochemistry at Boston University. He was known for his works of science fiction, and popular science was fascinated by the enigmas surrounding the moon.
Asimov wrote about the moon and how he believed it may have been “captured” and put into position: “It’s simply too large to have been captured by the Earth. The chances of such a capture having been effected and the Moon then having taken up nearly circular orbit around our Earth are too small to make such an eventuality credible.”
And Asimov was right to consider the Moon’s orbit—not only is it a nearly perfect circle but a stationary one, meaning that one side always faces the Earth with only the slightest variation. As far as we are aware, this s the only natural satellite which possesses such an awkward orbit.
