Book Description

5 Jan 1999

Information is now available that throws into serious doubt the authenticity of the Apollo record, and new evidence clearly suggests that NASA hoaxed the photographs taken on the surface of the Moon. These disturbing findings are supported by detailed analysis of the Apollo images by professional photographer David S Percy ARPS and physicist Dr. David Groves PhD.

The numerous inconsistencies clearly visible in the Apollo photographic record are quite irrefutable. Some of the many errors evidenced in DARK MOON were no doubt due to haste and poor thinking. Others were deliberately planted by individuals dubbed by the authors as 'Whistle-Blowers', who were determined to leave evidence of the faking in which they were unwillingly involved.

This publication is particularly timely as 1999 is the 30th anniversary of the first lunar landing and the 40th anniversary of the establishment of NASA.

DARK MOON is the long-awaited answer to a question that was first asked in July 1969-did the Apollo missions really land a man on the Moon and return him alive and well to Earth, or is the record incorrect?

"We don't have time to answer their questions, the truth is in the photographs," was the comment from a NASA spokesman.

By asking the very question that has haunted NASA from 1969 until the present day, the authors have uncovered a deception that appears to emanate from the very top regarding the exploration of the Moon.

DARK MOON is an extensively researched and balanced assessment of the people and parallels within the USSR/USA space programs and an in-depth examination of the material regarded by NASA as proof that the named Apollo astronauts did indeed walk on the lunar surface. The circumstances surrounding the Apollo 13 'accident' are closely scrutinised revealing the fact that the account is full of serious discrepancies. Thirty years after these 'events' new evidence suggests that the Apollo record is seriously flawed and more than amply demonstrates that NASA has a case to answer.

"I tried to disprove the authors' claims, but as a professional in image processing I was surprised to find that these Apollo photographs are full of contradictions and inconsistencies," said David Groves PhD.

Investigates why NASA chose to present the Apollo scenario with which we are all familiar, when research evidence suggests that a parallel operation was actually executed.

Demonstrates that lighting was used in the Apollo photographs-yet none was taken to the Moon, and shows that impossibly high photographic viewpoints were employed-yet the images should have been taken from cameras fixed to the astronauts' chest brackets.

Analyses the lunar surface photographs that appear to be encoded with deliberate mistakes and compares the still images with the claimed 'live' TV coverage of the Apollo missions.

Highlights the severe dangers of space radiation, graphically detailing the numerous potential hazards to be overcome during manned exploration of deep space. Presents the testimony of Whistle-Blowers together with interviews and comments from specialists and scientists involved in the development of manned space travel.

Provokes the discussion of many subjects that some may not wish to address, including new hypotheses concerning gravity and light.

Proposes that spacecraft will require radical conceptual renewal before we can send a man to Mars and return him safely to Earth. Reveals the role that the Roswell Incident played in the overall project to get to Mars following a trial run to the Moon.

Product Description


"Dark Moon is two amazing books in one. On the one hand it is an admirably documented investigation of the greatest sting in history-the alleged Apollo Moon landings. As if that were not enough, the further investigation of the reasons behind this monumental operation leads to the structures observed on Mars and their exact counterparts on Earth, the almost incredible age of the Moon, the real message of the Egyptian Sphinx and much else besides. Dark Moon is then also a serious contender and complement to 'Fingerprints of the Gods', 'The Sirius Mystery' and 'Serpent in the Sky'." -- Stan Gooch, author of 'Total Man'

I sort-of enjoyed reading this book - it makes a good bathtime read if nothing else! It starts off reasonably well, the arguments about doctored photos etc are well put and just about had me convinced. I guess this is their strongest subject and the reason for their skepticism about the Apollo project. Unfortunately the authors didn't think to quit when they were ahead, and the more I read the less convinced of their arguments I became... the book rambles from one subject to another with little to connect them, they get basic facts wrong yet pedantically complain about "inaccuracies" in irrelevant things like other people's spelling! They cite films such as Apollo 13 and Independence Day (!!! reference to "inaccuracies" in the date of the Roswell incident, for goodness' sake! Thanks for the laugh, folks, took me ages to stop when I read that!) as perpetuating the "myth". How can they expect to be taken seriously with arguments like this? Then they liberally fill the book with breakout boxes containing sarcastic and usually irrelevant asides - do they think they're being amusing? To me, they just diminish their credibility by resorting to playground name-calling. They should concentrate on making their arguments coherent, unless of course they're just padding out the book to make it look like a serious work of research. I won't go on - but if you want to read some very entertaining theories regarding Mars, crop circles, UFOs, Frau Im Mond, Buzz Aldrin, and Hitler's dog then by all means buy this book. Personally, I wish I'd borrowed it from the library and not wasted my money.

I bought and read this book with an open mind, since I was ready to accept the idea than a governmental agency such as NASA, at the height of the Cold War, might have fabricated part of the truth around the lunar missions, for propanganda and budgetary reasons. However, unlike the Apollo spacecrafts, this book doesn't fly. One of the authors claims to be an expert at photography, but seems to misunderstand the most basic rules about perspective (see the discussion about converging shadows). This is just one example: all other so called arguments used to "prove" the fabrications are either shaky at best, or blatantly false. Even the book cover, showing that the landing site for Apollo 13 (Fra Mauro) was in the night side at LAUNCH time, is misleading, since at the planned LANDING time (April 15, 1970 at 9:55 pm EST) it would have been sunlit. The only thing this books succesfully demonstrates is the ability of the authors to cling to their pet theory no matter how unconclusive or contrary the evidence they come up with is. And when one of their interviewees (engineers, scientists) says something that goes against it, he is conveniently labelled as a "whistle blower"... If you're looking for entertaining theories (like the one according to which the Apollo 11 CSM stayed in Earth orbit while a... soviet rocket secretly took the LM to the Moon), you can buy this book. If you're looking for solid evidence that the Moon landings where faked, well, buy something else!

1.0 out of 5 stars Factual Inconsistencies 13 Jan 2004
Having borrowed this book from the library i thought it might be a good read - but factual errors crop up everywhere!If the authors have researched this book so thoroughly (as it states on the back cover) then how come something as simple as a diagram labelled (by the authors) Vostok airlock can crop up? vostok didnt have an airlock! As well as this two other examples that spring to mind are the frequent mixups between apoapsis and periapsis (they label them the wrong way round in a table, as well as other locations) and in the back the maths they use to describe lunar gravity and the earth-moon zero acceleration point cannot be compared to each other, while the authors suggest they can.
In short, this book may be interesting but it is also completely incorrect. Im not stating that we have or have not landed on the moon - i am stating that the "evidence" put forward by the authors is so factually incorrect that it offers no proof what-so-ever in relation to lunar landings.

2.0 out of 5 stars How? 24 Jun 2003
The fact that this book was published at all leads me to only two possible conclusions.
1: The publishers are extremely gullible and actually believed the claims in this book, or
2: They realised just how amusingly absurd it really is and published it to give us all a good laugh.
The reviewer who mentions Bennet and Percy's "meticulous" research ought to try doing a little of his own (especially after recent events which cast a great deal of doubt on the Suveyor III footage they claim was part of the Apollo 12 landing film: It seems that this is actually not part of the landing footage at al, and Bennet and Percy lifted it from a documentary programme and simply assumed that it was distributed by NASA as actual footage taken on the moon. When questioned about it, their response was that they had no reason to believe it was not NASA lunar footage; in other words, they didn't check their source properly, which is inexcusable when it is the very source of the material that forms the crux of their argument in this instance!). The flaws in their arguments are obvious to anyone with a little initiative: Multiple light sources cast multiple shadows. The moon's surface is one huge reflector. Thin black lines are often covered in photographs by bright white objects because the emulsion on the film bleeds across the line. And so on and so forth.
Their presentation of scientific experimental data is also highly suspect, with dubious connections to the conditions on the moon, and excessive precision. They seem to believe that if they throw enough numbers at you they automatically become believable. A good example is the face on Mars. A little simple mathematics shows that their position for this edifice, given to fractions of an arc second, works out to be precise to around 0.1mm.
