A giant network of tunnels and caves on the dark side of the Moon could be home to sneaky aliens keeping an eye on us.
For decades, the dark side of the Moon has been filling our imaginations with all sorts of crazy ideas. The Moon’s right there, we can see it on most nights but our natural(?) satellite also has a far side that we never get to see from down here. So close, yet so far away, the dark side could be home to anything, including an alien presence, and ground-based observations would be unable to detect their existence.
But a recent strange event could go a long way in providing ample evidence for us to suspect the dark side of the Moon is indeed inhabited by extraterrestrials.
In 2008, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) launched the Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft, a car-sized orbiter that was to become the nation’s first lunar probe. The launch was a success and the probe remained in the Moon’s orbit for almost a year, where it continued to gather data and take various images of the lunar surface.
But in August 2009, following a series of technical issues, Chandrayaan-1 became unresponsive and the ISRO was forced to officially end the mission. The probe was lost but unbeknownst to the world, it would make a comeback.
In July 2016, seven years after contact was lost, NASA detected a small object orbiting the Moon. Over the following months, observations revealed the object was in fact the long-lost Chandrayaan-1 lunar probe.
A collaboration between the two space agencies has provided the public with new and controversial images of the far side of our satellite. Imagery shows the presence of a vast network of dried lava tunnels under the surface connecting thousands of caves, some of them big enough to house entire cities.
For some time, NASA has known about the existence of these caves and lava tubes and even proposed they be used as potential locations for future human colonies on the Moon.
In a recent video, YouTube channel UFO News submits some bold but entirely plausible scenarios involving alien colonies and the strange network of caves and tunnels present on the Moon.
The presence of enormous caves on the moon suggests that an alien civilization could be living much closer to home that we previously thought. We find it fascinating that an extensive network of caves and tunnels, some of which are large enough to house entire cities, are covering the surface of the moon.”
Because the Moon rotates at the same rate as it orbits our planet, the far side is always facing away from us. This aspect would have been a tactical advantage to any alien creatures who wanted to observe us without running the risk of being spotted. Prior to 1959, when the Russians obtained the first images of the dark side, we had no idea what it looked like.
Now that we have satellites and probes, an alien presence looking to remain undetected would have to resort to new strategies in order to hide from prying human eyes. The vast network of caves would offer them the perfect hiding spot and the dried lava tunnels could be used as a highway system to connect all their secret locations.
But despite the fact that we now have the technology to explore the previously out-of-bounds half of the Moon, we have few high-resolution images of these critically-important regions. Many have taken NASA’s silence on the matter as a confirmation that aliens inhabit the dark side of the Moon.
With very little effort on their part, these alien colonists could find themselves sheltered from the harshness of outer space. The enormous caves could house fully operational bases with living quarters and ample parking spots for their UFOs. They could travel undetected between these bases using the ancient lava tunnels under the surface.
Unfortunately, we have little evidence to prove this because of the ongoing effort to suppress critical proof. Fortunately, we have our curiosity and suspicious nature on our side. But we definitely need to find more lost probes.
