New Revised Edition of Dark Mission to be Released October 6th

The revised and expanded (and final) edition of the New York Times Bestseller "Dark Mission - The Secret History of NASA" by Richard C. Hoagland and Mike Bara, will be released to bookstores on October 6th, 2009. Coming 2 years after the release of the original edition, the newly revised and expanded edition will feature a new 47 page insert which updates and expands upon issues raised in the original edition. It will also include more than 20 new, never before seen images of anomalies on the Moon and Mars.

"We're very excited about this new edition," co-author Richard C. Hoagland stated in an interview. "It closes some open loops, clarifies some ongoing disputes, and takes the whole premise of the book in a new direction."

Co-author Mike Bara agrees. "I think readers will be more than satisfied with the new edition," he said. "We've moved the ball forward quite a bit while addressing lingering issues raised in the first edition."

Publisher Feral House Books is also looking at ways to distribute high resolution versions of the more than 100 images published in Dark Mission. "There is no comparison to the fidelity you can get from these digital images on a computer screen compared to print," Bara said. "However we decide to distribute the images electronically, purchasers of the new edition will certainly get a discount, at the least."

The revised and expanded edition of Dark Mission will be in bookstores October 6th, with pre-ordering through outlets like Barnes and and beginning in August.

LRO Images the Apollo Landing Sites

For all you "we never went to the Moon" guys...

We Choose the Moon

There is a great site out there that recreates in real time the historic Apollo 11 mission from 40 years ago. It has real time audio, video and other features. So cool.

I wonder if we'll finally see those boulders Neil Armstrong supposedly had to fly over to get to the landing site?



I know we've been quiet here for a while, sorry about that. Richard and I have been busy working on something that you'll be hopefully hearing about soon (like in the next week).

I'm going to try and get a few updates posted and some new stuff, and I'm trying to figure out how to link Twitter or Facebook updates to the Blog, but that would take an actual commitment to doing it. Maybe Sunday.

Thanks guys, as Richard says, "Stay Tuned."
