Aristotle's once wrote that "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." Whilst you may entertain conspiracy theories about NASA you will find them hard to accept. Such conspiracy theorists have tormented Moon astronauts for over 40 years. Buzz Aldrin famously punched moon-landing denier Bart Sibrel in the face in 2002. Neil Armstrong probably spent his life hiding from people like Hoagland. Of course the author claims Aldrin and Armstrong were hypnotised to forget all about the alien artefacts they saw on the moon. I believe there is a special circle of Hell reserved for NASA conspiracy theorists. In this Hell these people get to walk around the Moon & Mars for eternity looking for non-existent space aliens..... And for eternity the Devil will criticise them for covering up when they found. I first read about alleged cover-ups of life on the Moon back in the late 1980's when I was still a teenager and I found the idea entertaining but hardly convincing. The trouble with "Dark Mission" is Hoagland's ability to make his theories so dull. There is a good 20% of this that is probably a genuine retelling of NASA history with another 20% that touches upon quite interesting fringe science. Anyone who has found the theories of 'torsional physics' elsewhere know that it dates back way beyond Tesla and covers an exotic range of ideas including zero point energy, anti-gravity drives and time travel. THAT is interesting but not yet accepted into mainstream physics. Which leaves us with the 60% of the content which is hardcore conspiracy theory. It ropes in the Free Masons, the Kennedy assassination, Roswell and space aliens. The main premise is that NASA is an occult organisation that aligns its activity with the astrological positions of planets linked to Egyptian Gods. None of it is remotely plausible yet, like all good conspiracies, the very lack of evidence and, indeed, any contradictory evidence, is presented as proof of the theory. The author would have you believe that Buzz Aldrin's Holy Communion on the moon was an occult-Freemason-Egyptian ritual. The proof? None. The author just waves it away claiming that the ritual can be traced back to ancient Egypt. Hoagland's approach to statistical modelling is to fire a machine gun at a wall and then draw the target around where-ever the most holes are. The photographic evidence is all so many Rorschach ink-blot tests. The author and his team simply see whatever they wish to see. They have blown up tiny portions of photographs to look at something so small it is nothing more than film grain - then claim they can see enormous structures on the moon made of glass complete with full architectural detail. Yet to everyone else these features look natural. The author presents this all so much "killer evidence" yet is utterly underwhelming & disappointing. Charles Bukowski once wrote that "The problem with the world is that intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid one are full of confidence." Everything Hoagland writes is doubtful. Read "Dark Mission" but Google it often to see how others have debunked it. And, by the way, the photos of Mars in 2001 show there is no face there.

Fascinating stuff. The amount of detail and research that has gone into this book is amazing. If even a quarter of what is wrote in the book is true then serious questions need to be answered but I'm sure they are not likely to be forthcoming. It can be a bit tough going in places but it is well worth persevering as it will make you think and want to question many things. Chapter 3 alone for me was worth the price of the book as I found the piece surrounding JFK very intriguing and if true and they are prepared to go to those lengths then what else could they be keeping from the public?

The science gets a little too deep and long for me at times personally so I skipped a couple chapters. But highly recommended for anyone interested in the source material. Not something you can just skim through its a serious book.

A very well researched and written book covering the likely background of NASA. Definately a page turner which prompts further research and investigation. Well recommended.

Thought provoking and slightly disturbing if the authors are correct in their conclusions. The theories and evidence offered to back them up are in part fascinating, very intriguing and sometimes compelling. It cannot be random chance that so many NASA photo's were lost to further scrutiny all by 'accidental' means at crucial times. Or that satellite imagery and whole unmanned missions continue to fail at critical points when their successful operation could reveal factual confirmation of the author's conclusions.

This book was an amazing read encompassing some key questions around our history of space exploration and NASA's role generally. The authors presented in-depth analysis of evidence indicating anomalous structures on both the moon and Mars. Within that analysis the writers provide considerable information to indicate that NASA is anything but a civilian space agency and that it's part of the dark, secret power structures that use public money to further their own secret agenda and withhold hugely important information from mankind. The secrets NASA has hidden about these destroyed ancient structures are, for me, the most important message but also of interest is the esoteric ritualistic pattern behind these space projects. I commend the authors for their decades long challenge to this powerful cabal, chipping away at lies and deceipt. As we edge slowly towards disclosure, this book provides some important context. It is a powerful read.
