Moongate: Suppressed Findings of the U S

Moongate is a self-published book by William L Brian which alleges a cover-up by NASA, the United States military and the Russian space program over what was really found during the US and Soviet Moon landings and space programs in general. Brian, a nuclear engineer, states his belief that the Moon landings actually did take place, unlike many other Moon landing hoax theorists, but that information acquired during the landings has been covered up and or suppressed. He also asserts that NASA is a wholly owned and operated front organization of the US military, that Secret weapons and covert military space program were developed under the cover of a civilian space program, and that NASA and the military has suppressed gravity research discoveries which were supposedly used also in Apollo program. The book outlines a belief that the United States and USSR cooperated during their alleged Space race, and that secret discoveries put the Apollo astronauts on the moon. The book also asserts that discoveries of the Moon's true nature have been suppressed, especially its geology and atmosphere, and that the Moonshots and space programs really never ended.

The Cosmic Connection An Extraterrestrial Perspective

In 1973, Carl Sagan published The Cosmic Connection, a daring view of the universe, which rapidly became a classic work of popular science and inspired a generation of scientists and enthusiasts. This seminal work is reproduced here for a whole new generation to enjoy. In Sagan's typically lucid and lyrical style, he discusses many topics from astrophysics and solar system science, to colonization, terraforming and the search for extraterrestrials. Sagan conveys his own excitement and wonder, and relates the revelations of astronomy to the most profound human problems and concerns: issues that are just as valid today as they were thirty years ago. New to this edition are Freeman Dyson's comments on Sagan's vision and the importance of the work, Ann Druyan's assessment of Sagan's cultural significance as a champion of science, and David Morrison's discussion of the advances made since 1973 and what became of Sagan's predictions. Who knows what wonders this third millennium will reveal, but one thing is certain: Carl Sagan played a unique role in preparing us for them.
