“Scientists at a meeting of the International Lunar Exploration Working Group argue that it doesn’t matter if humans have ‘been there’ — there is plenty we still don’t know about our moon…” — Joe Pappalardo, Popular Mechanics science writer


The Spaceship Moon Theory, also known as the Vasin-Shcherbakov Theory, is a pseudoscientific theory that claims the Earth’s moon may actually be an alien spacecraft. The theory was put forth by two members of the former Soviet Academy of Sciences, Michael Vasin and Alexander Shcherbakov, in a July 1970 article entitled “Is the Moon the Creation of Alien Intelligence?”.

Vasin and Shcherbakov’s thesis was that the Moon is a hollowed-out planetoid created by unknown beings with technology far superior to any on Earth. Huge machines would have been used to melt rock and form large cavities within the Moon, with the resulting molten lava spewing out onto the Moon’s surface. The Moon would therefore consist of a hull-like inner shell and an outer shell made from metallic rocky slag. For reasons unknown, the “Spaceship Moon” was then placed into orbit around the Earth.

The Vasin-Shcherbakov Theory

Is The Moon The Creation Of Alien Intelligence?

Although people long ago began to wonder whether the “canals” on Mars were the creation of cosmic engineers, for some odd reason it has not occurred to them to look with the same eyes upon the peculiarities of the lunar landscape much closer at hand. And all the arguments about the possibilities of intelligent life existing on other celestial bodies have been confined to the idea that other civilisations must necessarily live on the surface of a planet, and that the interior as a habitat is out of the question.

Abandoning the traditional paths of “common sense”, we have plunged into what may at first sight seem to be unbridled and irresponsible fantasy. But the more minutely we go into all the information gathered by man about the Moon, the more we are convinced that there is not a single fact to rule out our supposition. Not only that, but many things so far considered to be lunar enigmas are explainable in the light of this new hypothesis.



The origin of the Moon is one of the most complicated problems of cosmogony. So far there have been basically three hypotheses under discussion.

HYPOTHESIS I: The Moon was once a part of the Earth and broke away from it.

This has now been refuted by the evidence.

HYPOTHESIS II: The Moon was formed independently from the same cloud of dust and gas as the Earth, and immediately became the Earth’s natural satellite.

But then why is there such a big difference between the specific gravity of the Moon (3.33 grams per cubic centimeter) and that of the Earth (5.5 grams)? Furthermore, according to the latest information (analysis of samples brought back by the U.S. Apollo astronauts) lunar rock is not of the same composition as the Earth’s.

HYPOTHESIS III: The Moon came into being separately, and, moreover, far from the Earth (perhaps even outside the Solar system). This would mean that the moon would not have to be fashioned from the same “clay” as our own planet. Sailing through the Universe, the Moon came into Earth’s proximity, and by a complex interplay of forces of gravity was brought within a geocentric orbit, very close to circular. But a catch of this kind is virtually impossible.

In fact, scientists studying the origin of the Universe today have no acceptable theory to explain how the Earth-Moon system came into being.

OUR HYPOTHESIS: The Moon is an artificial Earth satellite put into orbit around the Earth by some intelligent beings unknown to ourselves.

We refuse to engage in speculation about who exactly staged this unique experiment, which only a highly developed civilisation was capable of.


Lunar Surface Close Up



If you are going to launch an artificial sputnik, then it is advisable to make it hollow. At the same time it would be naive to imagine that anyone capable of such a tremendous space project would be satisfied simply with some kind of giant empty trunk hurled into a near-Earth trajectory.

It is more likely that what we have here is a very ancient spaceship, the interior of which was filled with fuel for the engines, materials and appliances for repair work, navigation, instruments, observation equipment and all manner of machinery… in other words, every-thing necessary to enable this “caravelle of the Universe” to serve as a kind of Noah’s Ark of intelligence, perhaps even as the home of a whole civilisation envisaging a prolonged (billions of years) existence and long wanderings through space (billions of miles).

Naturally, the hull of such a spaceship must be super-tough in order to stand up to the blows of meteorites and sharp fluctuations between extreme heat and extreme cold. Probably the shell is a double-layered affair — the basis a dense armouring of about 20 miles in thickness, and outside it some kind of more loosely-packed covering (a thinner layer, averaging about three miles). In certain areas — where the lunar “seas” and “craters” are, the upper layer is quite thin, in some cases, non-existent.

Since the Moon’s diameter is 2,162 miles, then looked at from our point of view it is a thin-walled sphere. And, understandably, not an empty one. There could be all kinds of mater-ials and equipment on its inner surface.

But the greatest proportion of the lunar mass is concentrated in the central part of the sphere, in its core, which has a diameter of 2,062 miles.

Thus the distance between the kernel and the shell of this nut is in the region of 30 miles. This space was doubtless filled with gases required for breathing, and for technological and other purposes.

With such an internal structure the Moon could have an average specific gravity of 3.3 grams per cubic centimeter, which differs considerably from that of Earth (5.5 grams per cubic centimeter).


Moon Crater



The most numerous and interesting of the formations on the lunar surface are the craters. In diameter they vary considerably. Some are less that a yard across, while others are more than 120 miles (the biggest has a diameter of 148 miles). How does the Moon come to be so pockmarked?

There are two hypothesis–volcanic and meteoric. Most scientists vote for the latter.

Kirill Stanyukovich, a Soviet physicist, has written a whole series of works since 1937 in which he expounds the idea that the craters are the result of bombardment of the Moon for millions of years. And he really means bombardment, for even the smallest celestial body, when it is involved in one of those fastest head-on collisions so common in the cosmos behaves itself like a warhead charged with dynamite, or even an atomic warhead at times. Instant combustion takes place on impact, turning it into a dense cloud of incandescent gas, into plasma, and there is a very definite explosion.

According to Professor Stanykovich, a “missile” of a sizable character (say 6 miles in diameter) must, on collision with the Moon, penetrate to a depth equal to 4 or 5 times its own diameter (24-30 miles).

The surprising thing is that however big the meteorites may have been which have fallen on the Moon (some have been more than 60 miles in diameter), and however fast they must have been travelling (in some cases the combined speed was as much as 38 miles per second), the craters they have left behind are for some odd reason all about the same depth, 1.2-2 miles, although they vary tremendously in diameter.

Take that 148-mile diameter crater. In area it outdoes Hiroshima hundreds of times over. What a powerful explosion it must have been to send millions of tons of lunar rock fountaining over tens of miles! On the face of it, one would expect to find a very deep crater here, but nothing of the sort: there is three miles at the most between top and bottom levels, and one third of that is accounted for by the wall of rock thrown up around the crater like a toothed crown.

For such a big hole, it is too shallow. Furthermore, the bottom of the crater is convex, following the curve of the lunar surface. If you were to stand in the middle of the crater you would not even be able to see the soaring edge– it would be beyond the horizon. A hollow that is more like a hill is a rather strange affair, perhaps.

Not really, if one assumes that when the meteorite strikes the outer covering of the moon, this plays the role of a buffer and the foreign body finds itself up against an impenetrable spherical barrier. Only slightly denting the 20-mile layer of armour plating, the explosion flings bits of its “coating” far and wide.

Bearing in mind that the Moon’s defence coating is, according to our calculations, 2.5 miles thick, one sees that this is approximately the maximum depth of the craters.



Now let us consider the chemical peculiarities of the lunar rock. Upon analysis, American scientists have found chromium, titanium and zirconium in it. These are all metals with refractory, mechanically strong and anti-corrosive properties. A combination of them all would have envitable resistance to heat and the ability to stand up to means of aggression, and could be used on Earth for linings for electrical furnaces.

If a material had to be devised to protect a giant artificial satellite from the unfavorable effects of temperature, from cosmic radiation and meteorite bombardment, the experts would probably have hit on precisely these metals. In that case it is not clear why lunar rock is such an extraordinarily poor heat conductor–a factor which so amazed the astronauts? Wasn’t that what the designers of the Super-Sputnik of the Earth were after?

From the engineers point of view, this spaceship of ages long past which we call the Moon is superbly constructed. There may be a good reason for its extreme longevity. It is even possible that it predates our own planet. At any rate, some pieces of lunar rock have proved older than the oldest on Earth, although it is true, this applies to the age of the materials and not of the structure for which they were used. And from the number of craters on its surface, the Moon itself is no chicken.

It is, of course, difficult to say when it began to shine in the sky above the Earth, but on the basis of some preliminary estimates one might hazard a guess that it was around two thousand million years ago.

We do not, of course, imagine that the moon is still inhabited, and probably many of its automatic devices have stopped working, too. The stabilizers have ceased functioning and the poles have shifted. Even though the moon keeps that same side turned towards us, for some time it has been unsteady on its own axis, on occasion showing us part of its reverse side which were once invisible to observers on the Earth–for example, the Selenites themselves if they made expeditions here.

Time has taken its toll. Both body and rigging have disintegrated to some extent; some seams on the inner shell evidently diverged. We assume that the long (up to 940 miles) chains of small craters formerly ascribed to volcanic activity were brought about by eruptions of gas through cracks appearing in the armour plating as a result of accidents.

No doubt one of the most splendid features of the lunarscape–a straight “wall” nearly 500 yards high and over 60 miles long–formed as a result of one of the armour plates bending under the impact of celestial torpedoes and raising one of its straight, even edges.

The Moon’s population presumably took the necessary steps to remedy the effects of meteorite bombardment, for example, patching up rents in the outer shield covering the inner shell. For such purposes a substance from the lunar core was probably used, a kind a cement being made from it. After processing this would be piped to the surface sites where it was required.

Not long ago astronomers discovered variations in the gravitational fields near the large “seas”. We believe the reason to be this: the Moon’s dry seas are in fact areas from which the protective coating was torn from the armour cladding. To make good the damage to these vast tracts, the installation producing the repair substance would have had to be brought immediately beneath the site so that it could flood the area with “cement”. The resulting flat stretches are what look like seas to the terrestrial observer.

The stocks of materials and machinery for doing this are no doubt still where they were, and are sufficiently massive to give rise to these gravitational anomalies.

What is the Moon today? Is it a colossal necropolis, a “city of the dead,” where some form of life became extinct? Is it a kind cosmic Flying Dutchman?

A craft abandoned by its crew and controlled automatically? We do not know and we shall not try to guess.


NASA Airbrushed Moon Tower



We have put forward in this article only a few of the reasons–unfortunately the evidence is so far only circumstantial–for our hypothesis, which at first glance may appear to be crazy.

A similar “crazy” idea was put forward in 1959 by Professor Iosif Shklovsky, an eminent scientist, in relation to the “moons” circling around Mars. After carefully weighing up the evidence he concludes that they are both hollow and therefore artificial satellites.

We feel that the questions we have raised in connection with our Moon provide sufficient food for serious thought on the matter; the result may be the illumination of our many lunar riddles.

Now, of course, we have to wait for direct evidence to support our idea. Or refute it.

Probably there will not be long to wait.

    We will see! I just put it on my calendar and watch for it….I doubt it will happen…but I’ll watch for it anyway.

  2. upaces88 says:

    Don’t know if it will happen, but I will put that date on my calendar and see look for any articles that may pop up on that date — or any following dates.

    Did you have the opportunity in Canada to see the new TV series: THE EVENT?
    In the TV Series, the President was black and aliens who “looked human” were here to visit.

    There was a war going on with their species: For and Against the Human Beings.

    It lasted ONE season. the Science Fiction Channel was going to pick it up after that… and then nothing!!! Haven’t heard a word about it since.

    This is the TV AD for the show: The Event:

    You’re welcome….but really no thanks is necessary. I find this topic intriguing!
    I know it’s disheartening to be putting out articles and no one is commenting on them. I also write articles on Jericho777’s blog. I also don’t get many others commenting, but….I keep at it cuz even though no one is commenting doesn’t mean they aren’t reading them!

    Have you tried going to other wordpress blogs and reblogging from some that you find? If you also leave a comment, then it just might lure others to your site. Do you FB or Tweet? I don’t but Jericho does and we get some coming to visit from there and sharing our write-ups. Just a thought…..

  4. redneckdixiewarrior says:

    That was what the person who was telling about this conference said….it would cause wide spread panic.
    BTW….did you know that some Intelligence Agents have actually been brought into filming studios to consult with the makers of some Sci-Fi movies…such as “independance Day” and others…to give information to the film makers?
    They have been letting out bits of information in dribs and drabs to the public for quite awhile now without many even knowing about it. More than likely to spoon feed the populace information to get us aquainted with the reality that THEY”RE HERE!
    LOL! Beam him up Scotty!!

  5. upaces88 says:

    I remember that article and video concerning Eisenhower signing the Treaty with them.
    I think the excuse (or reason) now NOT to disclose it is because due to what is going on now in the country….they may(?) think this would panic people even more.

    Hmmm, wonder if the aliens would do us a HUGE Favor…if you know what I mean.

  6. upaces88 says:

    Can you tell this is my VERY FAVORITE SUBJECT!? LOL

  7. upaces88 says:

    Silly people…God created everything in “the universe.” The Bible doesn’t say that he created everyone white and human. LOL

  8. upaces88 says:

    Then, I just walked away without saying a word…..

  9. upaces88 says:

    I guess I was about 8-10 yrs old at the time. It was summertime and we were in the house so I guess it was between 9:00 and 10:00 p.m. when it happened.

    For no reason that I can remember, without words being spoken, my entire family went outside to stand on the front lawn. I remember ALL of the neighbors up and down the street were also coming out of their homes to stand on the lawn.

    We looked down the street that led to the major highway to see this HUGE saucer shaped object in the air over the houses. All I remember is standing outside staring at this HUGE object just hovering above. I don’t remember going back in.

    The next morning, my little brother and I went outside to play with the other kids on the block. They were all standing in the middle of the street….so we joined them. It was as though they were waiting for everyone to gather in the street. No one said a word. The only action taken was … we just looked at each other and “nodded.” THEN WENT ON TO PLAY SOFTBALL IN THE STREET.

    I am now 67 yrs old. Two years ago I drove to Ft. Worth TX to a High School Reunion. The place was packed. I can’t tell you why but I started walking to a corner of the room away from the dance floor, and the lines and lines of tables set up for dinner.

    Standing in that specific corner were ALL of the NOW GROWN children I used to play with. I was the last to arrive. It was weird what happened next. No one said a world. We just all “nodded” the motion of “yes.”

    “Yes” we saw? Or, ?????

  10. redneckdixiewarrior says:

    God created everything…even the Universe.
    In the Bible it says that there are many rooms
    ( Planets?) in God’s Mansion (Universe?)……

  11. redneckdixiewarrior says:


    Got some of those too!

  12. redneckdixiewarrior says:

    I heard last night that there will be a conference in Wash. Dc on April 29th to May 3rd. Mr. Hillyer from Canada and other Military and politicals will be meeting to hold talks on whether they should release information that they have on Space Alines to the public. They will be talking of their experiences also!
    So….the truth is then, that we are being visited by something or someone …they just don’t know what they should divulge to the public or how much they should say about it. Don’t hold your breath though waiting for them to say they have been working with them and for the Gov’t to admit they traded humans for experimental reasons for space technologies!

  13. upaces88 says:

    Wellll, I didn’t want to cheat you! LOL
    Basically? I wanted everyone to see that will be on here that we are NOT loony toon people for believing that “Yes, Virginia, there are aliens.”

    I had a couple of very weird experiences that I’d like to share. Right now? I have been away from my computer for too long and am cleaning out my inbox. Back later.

    Sorry LOL.

    I do NOT know if this is true or not:
    The United States of America are preparing for an Alien Invasion as reported by an Australian main stream media channel who had interviewed Paul Springer of US Air Command and Staff College, where he discusses strategies and preparations for an alien invasion.

    Also interestingly to note on the Australia landmass there are plans for the Mega Radio Telescope, which will be spread out over the dessert plains of Australia. Which will monitor the cosmos for extraterrestrial activity and provide a security screening that will also give credence to the alien invasion scenario.

    So what is the likely hood of an Alien Invasion? Well that is the million dollar question, as only god knows what type of technology they may have, for all we know their advanced technology could make them totally invisible to our radars of scanning and surveillance technologies.
