The Apollo 17 astronaut couldn’t hide his surprise when he saw a UFO on the Moon.
Apollo 17 was the last mission of NASA’s Apollo program, the last time humans set foot on the Moon, and the first time extraterrestrial life was detected.
Apollo 17 (December 7-19, 1972) was the last mission of NASA’s Apollo program and the last time humans set foot on the Moon or beyond low Earth orbit. Commander Gene Cernan and Lunar Module Pilot Harrison Schmidt walked on the moon while Command Module Pilot Ronald Evans circled it.
NASA astronauts usually follow a “script” and know exactly what to say and when to say it.
However, the astronaut was too surprised by something he had never seen. He forgot about his “lines” and stopped following the script.
Instead, start a long, unplanned discussion and conversation. The astronauts were really surprised. Unlike his colleagues, he seems to be in charge.
The astronaut asked what were the objects that were flying over his head . Then he gets funny. Surprisingly, the second astronaut did not know what to say either. This was not planned and was not in the script. However, he knew that they were being watched by NASA officials.
After a brief silence, he said it was an explosion from the spherical disk of the rover’s high-gain antenna.
More objects start to fly and again we hear genuine excitement. Then the astronaut realizes that he had said something that he should not have said in front of the cameras and NASA. He reluctantly accepts the vague explanation. He’s really upset and you hear sarcasm and disbelief in the background of his voice.
NASA tries to save this unpleasant situation and intervenes while CAPCOM confirms that it was an antenna explosion and that it happened before.
According to the astronaut who was clearly in charge, the antenna explosion was only “routine.”
This is an interesting video. Styrofoam exploding on the moon? Has this happened before? Has it reached this point that they have already taken countermeasures?
The planning of the space program was very precise and there were no compromises between the crew and the astronauts.
So what do you think after seeing the image ? Did the antenna explode? Explosive Styrofoam? Or did someone not tell us the truth, how many “visitors” the two astronauts passed?
