For several days, there has been a Chinese lander and rover on the surface of the Earth’s satellite, the Moon. Its purpose is to study this celestial body and lay the foundations for further research. Although the research program has just begun, the first discovery is being identified. The moon has a different color than the photographs taken by NASA.
The first photographs captured from the surface of our natural satellite clearly show that its color is gray-brown. It is so surprising that in earlier photographs, it seemed that the surface was just different shades of gray. Therefore, it is not surprising that more specialists look at these images in disbelief, claiming that someone is trying to deceive society.
It is hard to believe that the Chang’e 3 probe, which delivered the Yutu rover to the moon, has been the first artificial device to make a soft landing on this near-Earth ball since December 1972. The Americans landed there, Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt. Everything happened as part of the Apollo 17 mission.
The assumption that the color of the moon in official NASA photographs differs from the real one has been known for several years. Some researchers directly accused the Americans of intentionally retouching photographs for unknown reasons, as a result of which they all depict the surface of our satellite in shades of gray.
There are many indications that the actual color of the moon is brown. This is evidenced, for example, by the reflections on the covers of the spacesuits used by the NASA astronauts who visited the moon. It seems that the Chinese photographs reflect the true color of our satellite.
Unsurprisingly, the fact that NASA edited the photos to hide this fact indicates that the agency may have something serious to hide. While they were the only public photographs from there, this problem worked in the realm of speculation, but now, due to Chinese facts, irrefutable evidence has appeared that inspire some to formulate various conspiracy theories.
It turns out that the astronauts participating in the Apollo 10 space mission indicated that the colors of our satellite change. At least this was the result of official reports, but it is not known why this information was not made public.
When asked about these inaccuracies, NASA explained this in such a way that the color of the moon depends on the angle of incidence of the light and its current intensity.
Therefore, they argued that this could be due to different wavelengths of light, which were then interpreted by cameras that were imperfect at that time. Now, it is impossible to say whether this was the case, but no doubt, we have just learned something new due to the Chinese lunar mission.
