Water on the Moon
In 2009, NASA made a big ‘splash’ over the fact that the LACROSS (Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite) mission detected water in a permanently shaded lunar crater (Cabeus) by spectroscopy of a plume sent up by an impacting body.
The origin of this water should be obvious to most astrophysicists. It has been the subject of considerable scientific controversy in the past decade. I am referring to the hundreds of ‘house-sized comets’ falling to Earth on a daily basis, imaged by the UV cameras of the Polar satellite discovered by Louis A Frank, Professor of Physics at the University of Iowa and his associates. They calculated that about 20 comets enter the atmosphere each minute. At that rate, the steady stream of comets would have added about one inch of water to the Earth’s oceans every 20,000 years — enough to fill the oceans over billions of years. What astronomers do not understand is that this water was released by the impact on Jupiter only 6,000 years ago. Thus the failure to recognize cyclic catastrophism leads them to completely misunderstand the solar system in spite of the solid confirmation provided by the NASA Polar satellite. This is just another example of ‘science’ at its worst, sweeping under the rug anything which does not fit into the ‘standard model’.
One of the major objections advanced in an attempt to disprove Prof. Frank’s comet hypothesis, was that seismic sensors on the Moon did not detect these small comet impacts. What astrophysicists fail to recognize is that large amounts of water evaporated into the weightlessness of space will freeze and link up to form tenuous, snow-flake-like bodies, the impacts of which do not register as do solid bodies. This is what Louis Frank observed. There are so many of these bodies that they must have impacted every square foot of the Moon’s surface in the last 6000 years. However, as soon as the Sun illuminates the area, the water present on the surface was evaporated back into space in an invisible form. But certain areas, such as the impact site of NASA’s LACROSS satellite, remain perpetually in shade and the tenuous comets that strike at these locations can leave an accumulation of water.
The water was blasted from Jupiter by the same enormous impact out of which Venus was born or was shot out of the crater by the resulting jet of hot gases which continued ejecting significant mass from the crater up to around 1933. Today the Great Red Spot manifests the hot material still rising from a fusion furnace still burning in that crater. One of the major assumptions on which astrophysicists base their ‘standard model’ of the solar system is that Jupiter and Saturn are gas planets, but in the recent catastrophism scenario proposed here, they are composed primarily of water in the form of a solid ice-like structure called methane gas hydrates, which contain a very high proportion of deuterium, which is the fuel for the fusion furnace.
The events surrounding the creation of Venus demonstrates how all terrestrial planets were created – as the result of enormously high energy impacts on Jupiter. Since gas hydrates are primarily water, the vast majority of material blasted into space in the last 6,000 years was water. Proto-Venus formed from the small percentage of heavy elements incorporated in the gas hydrates. Since it was born so hot, all the lighter elements were initially lost by thermal escape into the inner solar system. They will be captured subsequently after proto-Venus cools down, thus the life-supporting elements such as hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, nitrogen, magnesium, sodium, chlorine, etc. will eventually collect on the surface, forming the land, the salty ocean and the atmosphere. But it is inevitable that they, particularly water, will also be captured by the extant planets, such as the Earth and the Moon.
The same catastrophism scenario provides another possible source for water found in and around craters, particularly on the near side of the Moon. These deposits are more consistent with the typically water-bearing mineral deposits found by the NASA Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M3) instrument on the Indian Chandrayaan probe which recently orbited the Moon for a number of months. The deposits could be due to the impacts of large near-surface rock bodies launched from priori-Mars between 4000 and 700 BC when it orbited the Earth. Near-surface rocks often contain aquifers. In fact, it is this class of bodies that are called short-period comets when still in inter-planetary space, because when they are heated by the Sun the water in the aquifers is vaporized, expands and freezes in space, forming a visible tail. The question in the case of these bodies depositing water on the Moon, is whether their water might have been completely evaporated back into space due to the energy released upon impact. In other words, the typically water-bearing mineral deposits found by M3 may have lost all their water upon impact.
