Is this the truth or its fiction? That is the question that everyone who reads the story of the skeleton in the moon is left with. It is claimed by a Chinese astrophysicist, Dr Kang Mao Pang, that America’s Apollo 11 lunar module that landed on the moon in the year 1969 was able to take a photograph of the human skeleton on the moon. Dr Kang Mao Pang, first made his claims during a news conference in Beijing last winter. During the news conference he released pictures of bare human footprints on the moon. As far as the source of the photos is concerned Dr Kang Mao Pang claims that he got them from ‘’an unimpeachable US source.’’
However the shocking thing is that even the astronauts of the Apollo 11 did not even know that the photos did actually exist. Together with the photograph of the human skeleton were other photos and documents, which came from the same source as the first one according to Dr Kang. The Chinese astrophysicist while addressing newsmen in Beijing was quoted as saying, ‘’The Americans have conspired in a cover up of monumental and possibly even criminal proportions.’’ He continued to tell the newsmen. “They hid photos of bare human footprints on the moon for 20 years and managed to keep the human skeleton secret even longer. The implications of what they found up there are staggering ‘’ he continued saying, ‘’But the Americans apparently feel that nobody else in the world is privileged enough to share the information.’’
Dr Kang’s claims and allegations seemed to ruffle the US space and intelligence experts, and the story goes that one of them went to the extent of going into hiding, after reporters tried to question him in a Washington DC restaurant. It is also reported that other American sources purportedly refused to comment even when they were told that the Chinese expert had over 1000 copies of NASA photographs that clearly show bare human skeleton on the lunar surface. The most interesting thing about the alleged skeleton is that it appeared to have been wearing a pair of jeans. It is further reported that judging from the position of the bones, it seems likely that the person it belonged to was partially dismembered and met with a violent death. There was also the possibility that the skeleton was transported into space long after the person was killed.
Another important point concerning the skeleton on the moon was that the decomposition of bone and flesh would not have been possible in the airless atmosphere of the moon. Dr Kang the Chinese expert noted that the age of the skeleton could not be estimated in the absence of the analyses of the bone. Dr Kang was further quoted as having said, ‘’Like the foot prints on the moon, these photos were taken by a remote camera aboard the lunar lander and were given to me by an American source who was beyond reproach,’’ Dr Kang reiterated, “I am also in possession of classified documents and letters that describe the foot prints as being fresh and the skeleton unquestionably human. The question to be answered is how the footprints and skeleton go to the moon. Dr Kang concluded by saying ‘’the obvious implication is that extraterrestrial lifeforms were involved but it shall never be known unless the Americans release the information they have.’’
In conclusion to the skeleton on the moon saga, it is said that the documents Dr Kang quoted from were stamped ‘’top secret’’ and dated August 3, 1969, which means they were written just 2 weeks after the astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neal Armstrong landed and walked on the moon in boots , not barefoot, on July 20 1969. Large portions of the text are said to have been redacted in black ink. It is apparent that US experts agreed extraterrestrials had something to do with bare footprints and skeleton on the moon. Efforts to get officials at any level of government to address Dr Kang’s report were futile. However a source from Washington said ‘’Nobody is going to say anything until President Bush gives the go ahead. This is not an ordinary cover up. It makes Watergate look like a Sunday school picnic. It’s that damn big,’’ the source concluded.
