NASA Readies for Launch of Lunar Mission

Published on Sep 3, 2013

The U.S. space agency NASA is launching a new mission to study the moon. VOA's Suzanne Presto in Washington has more about what scientists hope to learn from the LADEE mission, set to launch from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia later this week.

I'll believe it when I see it.


Did the video say manned mission then "Laddy" will be crashed into the surface at the end of the video?

Sure they will, and they'll find the Higgs boson on the same day no doubt.


Higgs boson is going to end up like other made up shit that evolves over time with new equations to stave away
contradictory observations. like black holes and pulars.

Took em long enough to go back.


Maybe the planned Chinese mission just upped the ante

I think it is really suspect about this new quest for the moon. China announces a manned mission to the moon and then NASA is sending an unmanned mission to the moon. This stinks of fabricating evidence so they can't prove it was a hoax all the time. :alien51:

A mission to the moon to study dust????????

WTF people save your money...... come to my house where you can study all the dust you want for free....

BYO feather duster! :alien51:

Honestly, they expect us to believe that they would spend $$$$$$$ and then some to work out if the lunar dust is electrically dust and if it was responsible for the glow effect they saw when they landed there 2000 years ago??


What is really going on?

I made a comment on this last year on a different thread.. so heres a copy/paste.

I will look forward to the findings. (It has been planned for quite a while)

Mushroom wrote:The guy in the OP made me smile.. Surely, he is taking the piss... The speed of gravity..Hahaha.

That being said, the moonwalk was faked... and I say this for a number of reasons where the evidence is contrary.

One of the reasons is due to the moondust problem and the fake LRO pictures of the landing sites. Either the LRO pics are real (and you can still see the tracks in the dust) or the dust storms are real.. This evidence contradicts IMO

This is from NASA on the dust storms.. so we are considering evidence from the same source.

Every lunar morning, when the sun first peeks over the dusty soil of the moon after two weeks of frigid lunar night, a strange storm stirs the surface.

The next time you see the moon, trace your finger along the terminator, the dividing line between lunar night and day. That's where the storm is. It's a long and skinny dust storm, stretching all the way from the north pole to the south pole, swirling across the surface, following the terminator as sunrise ceaselessly sweeps around the moon.

Never heard of it? Few have. But scientists are increasingly confident that the storm is real.

What could cause this? Stubbs has an idea: "The dayside of the moon is positively charged; the nightside is negatively charged." At the interface between night and day, he explains, "electrostatically charged dust would be pushed across the terminator sideways," by horizontal electric fields. (Learn more: "Moon Fountains." )

Even more surprising, Olhoeft continues, a few hours after every lunar sunrise, the experiment's temperature rocketed so high--near that of boiling water--that "LEAM had to be turned off because it was overheating."

Those strange observations could mean that "electrically-charged moondust was sticking to LEAM, darkening its surface so the experiment package absorbed rather than reflected sunlight," speculates Olhoeft. ... oonstorms/

Also, you can read about the upcoming LADEE mission here ... oct_ladee/ but I think the mission has been put to late Aug 2013

If the moondust sticks to the equipment and this does indeed happen every lunar sunrise, then why haven't the tracks been covered in the last 40 years.. Just asking.
