    What Have Apollo Astronauts Been Hiding for Decades?

    An Apollo mission secretly hidden in a classified tape for almost 40 years has been finally revealed, according to NASA recent report.

    Three astronauts who served on the Apollo 10 mission dating back to 1969 — before Apollo 11's first manned moon landing — were terrified to hear radio transmissions similar to music during the radio-free mission while traversing the far side of the moon.

    They were cut off from the Earth for about 60 minutes but still could hear radio sounds through their headsets after they entered lunar orbit. Astronauts were puzzled whether to report about the incident to NASA.

    The released transcripts contained "strange, otherworldly music coming through the Apollo module's radio," the Science Channel series "NASA's Unexplained Files" found out.

    The astronauts on board Apollo 10 can be heard talking about the "whistling sound."

    "You hear that? That whistling sound? Whooooooooo!" one of them says. Another astronaut said: "It sounds like, you know, outer space-type music."

    "Well, that sure is weird music," one astronaut says.  "Boy it got quiet, didn't it?" one can be heard..

    Apollo astronauts debated the necessity to tell Mission Control about the strange music minutes before they regained radio contact with Earth.

    "It's unbelievable", "Shall we tell them about it?", "I don't know. We ought to think about it," they questioned.

    "The Apollo 10 crew was very used to the kind of noise that they should be hearing. Logic tells me that if there was something recorded on there, then there was something there," Apollo 15 astronaut Al Worden says on the Science Channel program. "NASA would withhold information from the public if they thought it was in the public's best interest."

    The recordings remained classified in NASA's archives until 2008, prompting an ongoing discussion regarding the nature and origin of the "outer space-type music."

    "If you're behind the moon and hear some weird noise on your radio, and you know you're blocked from the Earth, then what could you possibly think?" The Huffington Post quoted Worden as saying.

    Some astronauts assume the music could belong to aliens. "These noises some of them are really weird, they even sound un sub conditional like strange alien speech."

      It was the wind whistling in the California desert! LOL

      A WHOOOOOOO, really? Static music? Aliens must dance everytime STATIC noises take on.

      A new dance on earth. STATIC BUGALOO? Really..
      And NASA hiding. Seriously.

      The moon is not insulated from powerful electromagnetic currents like the earth. They cause the weird lights seen on the surface and flying above sometimes.
      Possibly the capsule and maybe even their own bodies were resonating. No "music" was recorded only their conversation about it.

      How planets are formed and hold their shape is a larger-scale version of how perfectly-formed steel ball bearings are formed from molten white-hot metal: through suspension within resonating magnetic fields--in the case of celestial bodies, their own magnetic-gravitational-thermal fields--until they assume spherical shape limited in size by the frequency, wavelength and intensity of resident power(kinetic energy potentials of temperature, pressure and volume) of those fields. With celestial body formation a static state of final size is achieved when all frequencies in all these wavelengths--including acoustic frequencies--achieve their resonant frequencies. They are self-tuning tuning forks or pipe organ tubes, after a fashion.

      As they heard these signals on their communication frequency, what they probably heard were complex harmonics of the main driving frequencies just like the harmonics you make when you generate a harmonic on your guitar but in the radio frequency range.

      Ball bearing manufacture is a very noisy and eerie-sounding process too but in the audio band or 20 to 2,000 Hz. The Czech engineer who saw the expression on my face at this odd noise when I took a tour of his bearing machinery test facility said with a wise smile: "What you hear is Pythagoras' music of the spheres." He owned an Amistar 12-string 7-resonator cone dobro guitar which he played as well as he designed and built his custom ball-bearing manufacturing equipment.

      I have a tech paper on this stellar & planetary phenomenon of recent vintage to post if Sputnik readers would like which is from the Perimeter Institute.

      Did you know that the Earth and all the planets "sing" too even without human or alien intervention? It is a standard part of the radio astronomer's scope of work to fight his or her way through the dissonant clamour of the Universe's choir.

      Sounds like tuning in a radio-set during the 50s.

      Jackov Smirnoff,

      That is easy, it will tell them to convert to Allah or lose their heads

      True ... in Nevada desert one can hear "out of space" music.

      support, please send me a copy or provide the link. :)
      That seems to be a fascinating place, the PI. I have to pay more attention to it as Penrose has been involved. :) My first thought was the possibility of signals from solar or jovian sources but without knowing the type of equipment, frequency responses etc It's a fascinating problem. :)

      Hey Mike they may have just heard them raising hell in Vegas! That is a long way from the Cali desert though, so who knows!

      michael, here is the link, with pleasure:


      The most interesting aspect of this paper is that it appears that, based on empirical evidence and associated claculations, stars maintain their size and form without collapsing into black holes through the internal pressure generated by unimaginably hot plasma gases acting like a form of laser which form is achieved and maintained by the electromagnetic and specifically acoustic resonances of in-phase and coherent plasma energy but instead of an optical tube with one end half-silvered as a mirror and the other end a full mirror plus a collimator lens, instead the spheroidal shape forms a circular mirror with the focus at the center of the magnetically formed sphere. The differential of the cooler surface of the star compared to its internal heat is what is acting as both the mirror and the half-silvered mirror (otherwise the Earth would be pretty cold heh, heh) and the magnetic/acoustic field lines are what control both shape and physical size of the star.

      In other words, for the more mystically-inclined amongst us, stars and other celestial objects are God's guitars with the lasing plasma in the stars serving as the stars' shape-preserving and stabilisng amplifiers. As most stars' partial composition is iron one can only presume that music is heavy metal :)

      In conventional engineering in general, the discipline of vibration analysis has lots to say about resonance and for gas turbines, critical speeds, none of it good lol. Without the constraints of magnetic field resonance the Big Bang would be happening N number of times per millisecond (or perhaps it is but we cannot see it or only dark matter displays this behaviour).

      If you could get a welder's plasma arc torch to resonate in an in-phase and coherent manner, it too would act as an amplifier of that initial energy. That probably is what the death ray of the future will be. The largest laser ever built could not hope to match the range of energy unleashed by causing plasma to function in laser mode. Why it is not a weapon now is because present configurations would resemble George Carlin's nucler hand grenade: a bit tough on the user :>) Also the heat rejection array for even the smallest unit would require at least a city block of radiators, cooling fans and cooling piping.

      michael, here is also a quasi-non-mathematical definitive treatment of how acoustic waves in stars behave so that the Perimeter Institute paper is not too confusing. This is pretty basic stuff and highly readable:


      What I find most interesting about laser phenomena in general is that all that occurs with lasing happens as a function of semantics not violation of the basic laws of thermodynamics. After all the only thing that is happening is focusing the energy in a vibratory medium onto a single point at a single frequency and wavelength with the sine waves overlapping: therefore all one is doing is introducing order and sequence and association to a physical phenomenon.

      support, can you post an emAil or Internet address to access the tech paper you mention above? Thanks

      mwk_mwk, certainly. Here is the link (again, actually but no fear):


      Having done a bit more reading on the subject, Russian scientists in the 1980's drilled the deepest well in history (about 15-20 miles down) to sort out what was going on that far down. The odd observation was that beyond a mile or so down the Earth maintains a stable temperature of around 380 degrees Centigrade. This is insane yet if you know what the equation P=VxT means unless one considers that obviously all that pressure's energy is going somewhere which of course it is: maintaining the Earth's diameter through benignly thrumming and humming at its given diameter which tone is sustained by the energy created by the non-stop nuke reactions at the Earth's core.

      The sound of the Sun I like best. It is a stellar lullaby played on a gigantic uillann.

      mwk_mwk, Oh, I see what you are saying. My bad. I felt sure I posted this before but here it is again:


      Stupid of me. Sorry.
