Coast to Coast AM science advisor Richard C. Hoagland reported on the nearly 700 boxes of missing Apollo 11 data and videotapes. "Someone has stolen our heritage," he declared.These recordings were made using slow scan TV (SSTV) and were of higher quality than what was seen on network broadcasts of the moon landing.
Hoagland pointed toward lunar images he's labeled as 'The Tower' and 'The Shard,' as the reason why these boxes may have disappeared. 'The Tower,' described as a glass ruin 10-15 miles high, is an artifact of an ancient civilization that was once on the moon, he believes.
Steve Troy has studied blow-ups of NASA's lunar negatives and come to the same conclusions, said Hoagland. The two of them will be presenting new evidence at the Joshua Tree Retreat in October.
