NASA has revealed that while the crew of Apollo 10 was on a mission to the moon, they encountered “strange, otherworldly” moon music coming through their headphones, according to the upcoming Science Channel series, NASA’s Unexplained Files. Huff Post reports that the three astronauts on the mission — which occurred two months before Apollo 11′ s successful moon landing — were so started by the unsettling music-like transmissions, that they didn’t know whether or not to report it to NASA because the sounds were received while the crew was out of radio contact with Earth.
Almost four decades would pass before the “lost” recordings of the mission emerged to reveal the unexplained phenomena. The conversation between the three astronauts detail their surprise at the curious sounds.
“It sounds like, you know, outer space-type music.”
“You hear that? That whistling sound? Whooooooooo!”
“Well, that sure is weird music!”
The moon music transmission lasted almost an hour, and NASA’s “lost tapes” indicate the astronauts discussed whether or not to tell Mission Control what they had experienced.
“It’s unbelievable! You know?”
“Shall we tell them about it?”
“I don’t know. We ought to think about it.”
“The Apollo 10 crew was very used to the kind of noise that they should be hearing. Logic tells me that if there was something recorded on there, then there was something there,” Apollo 15 astronaut Al Worden says on the Science Channel program. “NASA would withhold information from the public if they thought it was in the public’s best interest.”
Since the 1940s, a number of NASA whistleblowers have risked life and career to expose the government’s cover-up of the existence of alien life. Edgar Mitchell, an astronaut who was the sixth man on the Moon and turned die-hard alien believer, claims that high-ranking U.S. military officials are aware that extraterrestrials visit Earth, and oftentimes observe military testing experiments.
“They wanted to know about our military capabilities,” he said. “My own experience talking to people has made it clear the ETs had been attempting to keep us from going to war and help create peace on Earth. Other officers from bases on the Pacific coast told me their missiles were frequently shot down by alien spacecraft.”
The transcripts of the Apollo 10 mission were classified and untouched in NASA’s archives until 2008, inciting ongoing debate about the nature and origin of the moon music. Is it possible that the music originates from “alien city,” which is an intriguing structure on the moon that UFO researchers and alien enthusiasts discovered via Google Moon? To locate the “alien city” on the surface of the moon, just open the Google Moon app and enter the following coordinates in the “search” field: 28°10’30.12″N 22°42’5.99″W, per IBTimes.
A former NASA manager of Data and Photo Control, Ken Johnston, was reportedly terminated for exposing the truth behind ancient alien cities. He says “NASA knows astronauts discovered ancient alien cities and the remains of amazingly advanced machinery on the Moon. Some of the technology can manipulate gravity.” Johnston asserts that the agency ordered a cover-up and forced him to participate in it.
“You don’t hear about anything like that until years after the incident occurs, and then you kind of wonder, because it’s such an old memory of those things that you get concerned about if they were making something up or was there something really there? Because you never really know,” Worden told the Huffington Post about the moon music.
“If you’re behind the moon and hear some weird noise on your radio, and you know you’re blocked from the Earth, then what could you possibly think?” Worden said.
