Secret spy base on the moon: Pentagon planned surveillance station to monitor Earth before Moon landings


- Published in 1959, the report noted the benefits of a surveillance system as well as a weapons system

- Declassified on the 45th anniversary of Neil Armstrong's historic moon walk

- Report's authors also considered the benefits of exploding a nuclear weapon near the moon to study the effects



A newly declassified report reveals the U.S. military considered building a surveillance station on the moon a full decade before the first astronauts set foot on its surface.
The report, codenamed 'Project Horizon,' was finally declassified Sunday on the 45th anniversary of Neil Armstrong's moonwalk.
Had it been implemented, the military would have installed a moon-to-Earth surveillance system for 'facilitating communications with and observation of the earth.'

Published in 1959, the full document is more than 100 pages.

ABC News reports the the proposal also discusses a weapons system on the moon that would have allowed for weapons to be launched not only towards the planet's surface but into outer space.
There was also considered of detonating a nuclear bomb on or near the moon to study its effects.
The report's authors speculate on just what effect the resulting radiation might have on aliens.
The report follows declassification of a second report, 'The Kidnapping of the Lunik,' which details American operatives stealing then returning the Lunik Soviet space capsule while it was on an exhibition tour.
As Wired reported in a recent story on Malaysia Airlines MH17, the U.S. Air Defense Support Program currently operates multiple satellites around the planet to watch for any warning signs of weapons or spacecraft being launched.
The system uses infrared cameras and can pick up even trace heat signatures.

They were especially helpful during the country's first incursion into Iraq as they could detect early warning signs of Scud missile launches.
More recently, this was used to detect the launch site of the weaponry that downed Malaysia Airlines MH17, and gave evidence to authorities statements shortly after the crash that the flight was shot down with a surface-to-air missile.

And last year amid fears over domestic spying, a top-secret rocket carrying spy satellites for the National Reconnaissance Office launched from the central California coast with a large badge emblazoned on the side
The new logo features a huge and sinister octopus, with just one angry eye visible, as it wraps its tentacles round the globe. Written underneath is: 'Nothing Is Beyond Our Reach.'
The 19-story-tall rocket carried items for the NRO, which operates the U.S. system of intelligence-gathering satellites.

I think they made it too! and around old existing structures. The octopus thing really causes me concern too, I must say.

What benefits? It's bad enough we blow the crap out of our planet, let alone our moon
