    Not to sound too pessimistic, but do you remember Russian space agency saw aliens everywhere too.

    It's just leftovers from Moon Base 2.

    I hate to be that guy, but with my bullshit degree in aero and astro, I feel I need to make this comment. There is no dark side of the moon. There is a far side of the moon we never see because the moon is tidally locked with earth. But the other side we don't see does in fact get light from the sun.

    Its the monolith! :wideyed:

    Or it could be the Ark. Maybe it was buried there after we colonized Earth from Mars.

    Dark in the context of "dark side of the moon" refers to it being non-observable.

    Listen to the orbiter module tapes and what they saw there. Hardly surprising that something is up there on the hollow moon.

    Shit well that explains why it's older than earth and in a practically impossible coincidentally perfect orbit ;)

    Yet we've observed it for 50 years. Some people really think it's dark there all the time, sorry to try to clarify that.

    I read that this morning. Article is 100% BS.
    That is a topographical map showing elevation. The dark blue shows low elevation that is all.

    it is how the Goverment gets the general population to accept the fact we are not alone. Star trek, transformers, super man, and X-files all got us ready to accept the fact verse shoot or put our dicks in it right away.

    Yeah,the picture is a topo, they measured gravity with a NASA craft, they also say the mass is pulling the basin floor down another half mile, so maybe that is why they used the Topo.

    I just thought it was Fun because it was some kind of anomaly on the Moon (also dark side) that led them to a Monolith in 2001, space odyssey...

    They are wondering why people are "cutting cords" by the millions. This why. The History Channel use to be about ................HISTORY.............
    And it was one of my favorite channels. Now it is 100% pure garbage with half the program time taken up with advertising. Who wants to pay for that crap?

    I do like American Pickers but it seems like that Pawn Stars and Ancient Aliens (which I absolutely despise) are the only things on the History channel in the evening. I have seen enough of all of these shows.

    I missed Counting Cars in that list but I have also seen enough of that as well.

    I despise most of the TV car shows. They are the bane of most real car guys. I have a friend that was a champion drag racer in his day; before the days you had to have big sponsors to go racing. He knows a lot of the big names in the aftermarket industry. He was invited to one of those big auctions and they had some of those "TV cars" to be auctioned off. I forgot what TV show he said but it was gas monkey or counting cars, one of those.
    He said he looked at the cars close and they were absolute junk. Made to look good on the outside, but junk otherwise.

    They've been mapping out the gravity of the moon like that since the 'mascons' were discovered in 1968.

    In 2011/2012 NASA used a pair of satellites on a mission called GRAIL to accurately map out the variations in gravity across the lunar surface.

    The big mass concentrations are located in the depressions like the one they highlighted on the topo map.

    It's buried below a crater. Most plausible explanation is am asteroid or comet crashed into the moon that had a higher mass density than the rest of the moon. It's likely 40b tons of iron.

    I believe the US government is incrementally releasing information so that the public will readily accept the fact there is thousands of alien life forms and some have made contact directly.

    I remember enjoying Modern Marvels back in the day, or was that on the Sci-Fi Channel? That used to have good content too, now it is garbage. I'm pretty sure there was a recent study where if sports channels were available for streaming, cable and satellite TV would lose at least half of their subscribers.

    LOL you can already stream live sports. The only downside is that you still have to pay for a set of other channels (albeit much cheaper). YouTube TV (what I have), PSVue, Hulu, and sling are just a few of the options to stream live sports. I pay $50 for YouTube TV and it has all of the channels that I want (although it would be nice to have NHL Network, I can live without it) and the quality is as good or better than cable and satellite (I usually get 1080P content instead of 720P with cable).

    Modern Marvels was the shit back in the day, now all they have is shit.

    And "How It's Made" (I think that was the title...?), the show where they'd explain exactly how products were made from materials sourcing, to engineering, to manufacturing, to distribution. It sounds like it would be super boring from the description, but I remember it being super interesting and would watch it every time I caught it on.

    In the UK, we at least still have "Yesterday" which has some great history documentaries intermixed with classic British Historical dramas and comedies. It's pretty much the best of what the History Channel used to be (the Impossible Engineering show treats the same topics as Modern Marvels). Not sure if you can get it in the States... https://yesterday.uktv.co.uk/
