Two satellites "Grail" were relatively small (with washing machine), but with the weight and the high speed at which they hit the lunar surface at the point of collision, hit so devastating. The kick — a double with an interval of 20 seconds.
The cost of both satellites and the mission of their work on the orbit of the moon, cost U.S. $ 500 million. Aboard both vehicles had fuel for the engines, but NASA has not found anything better than to send them to the moon?
What was the mission of the probe before the fall? NASA says that with the "Grail" scientists "significantly increased their knowledge of the lunar crust — it was less dense and more porous than previously thought, and also peppered with cracks filled with solidified magma. These cracks are probably formed in the distant past the moon in the expansion of its lithosphere. map the gravitational field of the Moon, received "twins", has the highest resolution and quality to date. "
His final resting apparatuses found on unnamed mountain near the North Pole of the Moon and the crater Golshmidta. As David Lehman — another project leader of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA, space for the final mission was selected by specialists in navigation with the expectation to minimize the probability that the "twins" will be broken in places where space ships were landing in framework of "Apollo" and "Moon."
50 minutes before the crash of ebb and flow, including its engine and run up to speed 6000km h Devices have minimized the height of the orbit and crashed into a mountain, moving at an angle of 1 degree to the horizon.
According to official statements by NASA in a collision they literally shattered, leaving small dents in the edge of the crater. But it is impossible to verify. Video and photo shoot was not conducted due to the fact that the area falls in the shadow of the Earth. Agree that NASA could choose a more successful in terms of light illumination time for the attack on the moon, but did so at a time when no astronomer from Earth, could not see the point of impact and its consequences. No visible flash from the crash probe astronomers could not see.
Lunar at the request of NASA hopes to get out of the crash information about the mechanical and chemical properties of the edge of the crater. Image of fall probes will be received from the Lunar orbiter LRO (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter) in a few weeks. But knowing NASA expected not edited shots — not …
On the moon, discovered a black hole with a diameter of 130 meters
According to some data, the diameter of the hole — 130 meters. Depth — is not known. The bottom is not visible. There is an assumption that the move could lead to the system of lunar caves, including and tunnels, and large rooms, it is located on the back side of the moon in the southern hemisphere in the sea Dreams (Mare Ingenii). Resolution images — just over half a meter per pixel.
Incidentally, in a press release, timed to the anniversary (one year) of finding the probe LRO in orbit, NASA experts have reported that there is one more hole — a little less than that of the Sea of Dreams. But the coordinates are not reported. And the high-resolution images do not show.
In 1969, the Moscow scientists M.Vasin A.Scherbakov and published a paper "The Moon — a creation of the mind", in which the hypothesis has been suggested that our "natural satellite" — a
artificial celestial body, having two protective covers: the first — teplometeorozaschitny layer thickness of about four miles and the second — the armored protective layer thickness of approximately ten miles, under which is a huge habitable cavity …
The researchers came from the fact that the lunar craters and cirques, which have, in the opinion of the world of science, meteoritic origin, despite the huge variation in the diameters (from hundreds of meters to hundreds of kilometers), have almost the same depth — up to three kilometers …
This could take place only if the meteorites, "bumping" in the protective layer of armor, swept teplometeorozaschitnuyu shell on the surface of the moon, since all of the energy emitted during the collision, encounters an insurmountable obstacle …
This is the reason the formation of the lunar ring of mountains ("Circus"), the center of which are not even always visible ridges of the mountains, as the latter are z and the lunar horizon.
"But if the moon is really" artificial body "- the scientists wrote, — it must be inside a n s t o t e l o d, and on the inner surface should be placed massive propulsion, power generators, giant machines repair membranes, and other equipment in the form of concentrated metal masses … "
Hypothesis M.Vasina and A.Scherbakova to get E with n e p and m e n t a l b e n o n o n t e r a g e e n e in 1969, when in the process of lunar exploration program "Apollo", were discovered powerful gravitational and magnetic anomalies, indicating the presence of metallic masses hidden beneath the lunar surface ("mascons" and "mikromaskony"), and in seismic sounding of the moon through the reset button on its surface ascent stage of the lunar landers "Apollo" opened "reverb", ie residual sound Moon, lasting up to two hours!
As stated about one of these experiments, Dr. Thomas Paine (former director of NASA) "The moon was buzzing like a bell. We can not explain this phenomenon … "
But if the hypothesis M.Vasina A.Scherbakova and that the inhabitants of the moon live under the surface, there being an artificial atmosphere, n and p and it is logical to assume that the release of excess gas or exhaust vents required, and that in time such emissions form the lunar surface will be distorted. (Think of the haze over red asphalt on a summer day or quivering air over a flaming fire …)
Indeed, among the tens of thousands of images of the lunar surface are very large percentage of these are the "fog and unclear" …
Seismometers installed by astronauts "Apollo" in the crater Bulliald (south-eastern part of the visible disk of the moon), regularly transmit signals to Earth, as opposed to having a rare sporadic moonquakes some monotonous rhythm …
Colleague George Leonard, Dr. Dan, studying seismograms this 37-mile crater and its photographs, came to the conclusion — "Such rhythmic moonquakes can be caused by passing trains" lunar underground … "
Dr. Samuel Uittkomb (Mount Palomar Observatory, California) is a specialist in deciphering lunar images, based on a thorough study of images of the crater Bulliald came to the conclusion that there is a giant generator that supplies energy subsurface mechanisms. The magnitude of this "moon power", based on the scale image, exceed … the Bronx — a residential district of New York.
About his startling imagination value S.Uittkomb doctor writes: "We must give up our outdated ideas about the Moon. They should be discarded as an old-fashioned coat has become narrow … on the moon with e r and r a n t, k and s r a m e s p o in … "
This view is known as super-scientist for propulsion are n o n o n e r s a n o s t u v moon. Their presence in the form of concentrated metal masses produce gravitational and magnetic anomalies of the Moon — "mascons."
(According to recent data, under the lunar surface are five huge objects ranging in size from 8 to 22 miles. Some of them have been identified in the infrared range of the European research satellite "COSMIC LEB" in 1999 — VK)
The gigantic size of lunar objects, as well as of the "spaceship" (most of the Moon), in my opinion, was due to the paramount task which had set these "structures" of their creators.
It is not difficult to understand that the long space, especially interstellar, flight puts high demands on the meteorite, thermal and radiation protection. We may not be suitable for estimating the size of "interstellar superkorablya" with their earthly measures. After all, whether the ship smaller sizes — the crew could hardly protect themselves from hostile to an open space, not only for the long flight, but also the many thousands of years in the orbit of a satellite of our Earth …
It should be added that since f e r ch e s to form the moon and I is right for man-made space objects as possible to isolate the maximum amount of surface area of the minimum …
Naturally durable, for millennia, meteorite bombardment has done its job, and visible today tens of thousands of large and small craters, saying only that the news,
"Immaculately" starship Moon was a very long time …

Interesting Facts about the Moon
Moon makes a complete revolution around the Earth in 27.3 days. She always turned to the Earth on one side. Side of the Moon was not available to the human eye until 1959, when the Soviet spacecraft "Luna-3" photographed her.
In a powerful telescope can see more than 500 000 lunar craters. The largest of these is called Bailly, its diameter is about 300 km., And the area slightly larger than the area of Scotland.
The dark spots are visible to the naked eye on the lunar surface, called Seas. They have no water, but millions of years ago, they were filled with volcanic lava. Some of them are very large, for example, the Ocean of Storms over the Mediterranean Sea.
On the moon there is no air, no water. Its soil is so dry that it nothing can grow. However, scientists have found that in brought to Earth samples of lunar soil plants can grow.
In contrast to the Earth's surface is constantly changing water by water and wind, the moon's surface remains unchanged. Traces left on the moon astronauts "Apollo" will be visible for at least 10 million years.
Earthquakes occur on the moon, called moonquakes, but compared to the earth, they are very weak. Every year there is more than 3000 moonquakes, but their total energy just to have enough for a small firework.
The average density of the Moon is 3.34 g/cm3, the output of astronomical data obtained shows that the interior of the moon — it's probably a hollow, not a homogeneous sphere.
The orbit of the Moon around the Earth is an ellipse, not a circle, so the distance from the ground to the center of the moon constantly varies.
With every second the moon is moving away from us, extending its orbit in a year by 4 cm Scientists say that only when the moon was formed (4.6 billion years ago), it was located at a distance of 22,530 km from the earth. Now the range is over 450,000 km.
On the moon there is an echo. November 20, 1969 the crew of Apollo 12 lunar module thrown on the surface of the moon, and the sound of its impact on the lunar surface provoked artificial earthquake. The consequences were unexpected after the moon rang like a bell for another hour.
The gravitational force of the Earth causes the moon to revolve around the Earth. However, the attraction of the moon affects the Earth, the first on the seas and oceans, causing tides. When the moon is at the near distance, its gravity increases and the tides reach their highest level.
U.S. Air Force on Tuesday, December 11 launched a secret compact space "shuttle" X-37B from Cape Canaveral, Florida.
Launch vehicle Atlas 5 with the machine on board off the ground at 13:03 on the East Coast (22:03 MSK). Unmanned spaceplane, enclosed in a special capsule on top of the rocket, was separated from her in a few minutes after launch, the ITAR-TASS referring to representatives of United Launch Alliance, is launched for the Ministry of Defense.
This is the second launch of the unmanned spacecraft. Earlier shuttle X-37B in orbit for seven months in 2010.
Then the entire flight and landing at American Air Force Vandenberg (California) is fully automated and, according to experts, were successful. Only at planting, after touching the runway, scattered tire a wheel chassis, but overall the spaceplane was hurt.
Dimensions of this spacecraft is four times smaller than the size of the previous model of the U.S. space shuttle. According to some assumptions, the shuttle can be equipped with special sensors that are designed to collect intelligence, said the AP.
However, no details of what the next mission of the X-37B, was provided.
X-37B developed by Boeing. Has a takeoff weight of about 5 tons, reaching 8.9 m in length, 2.9 meters in height. The scope of its small triangular wing is equipped with 4.5 m of solar panels, which when deployed in orbit are a source of electricity.
According to Pentagon data presented earlier, the spaceplane is designed to operate at altitudes of 200 to 750 km, is able to quickly change the orbit and maneuver.
Can perform razvedzadachi, deliver small loads into space, suitable for testing new devices that can be used, for example, on a spy satellite.
Some experts see in X-37B prototype of future space interceptor that allows to inspect and if necessary, disable enemy satellites, and can be, and cause air strikes from orbit. Pentagon denies it, assuring that the machine — just a platform for testing new technologies …
Sure his crew is inside now. This is confirmed by numerous UFO above the lunar surface, as well as the facts of terraforming activities and traces on the surface.
Perhaps temples and megalithic structures on the surface had been destroyed by the its inhabitants, after enough people invented telescopes that would be in the details of the surface to see satellite. Luna became a station of secret surveillance for human civilization …
