The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has a high-resolution camera in a polar orbit, with sufficient resolution to see the Apollo landing sites in great detail. If there's anything on the far side, it's damn well camouflaged.

We have the LRO, the Lunar Reconnaisance Orbiter, in a polar orbit so it covers the entire Lunar surface. ESA has ARTEMIS (a system of 2 satellites). China also has one, but I don't think the Russians do.

Google Earth has a Lunar part (and Mars too), but they don't use their own images. What we need are street-level views from the entire surfaces of the moon and Mars.

That's why it's better to refer to it as the "far side" instead of the "dark side", and if more people start using the correct term, more people will hopefully better understand the moon!

"Dark side" sounds a lot more mysterious though. Enables, or at least enhances, conspiracy theories.

China and the US may not be the best of friends when it comes to worldly and financial dealings, but when it comes to THIS topic, they are probably in agreement with the US, revealing such news about the dark side of the moon would be devastating to US credibility, it would give instant credibility to those that say the first moon landers encountered hostile aliens on the moon and the US classified the details.


Besides that, there would be too much potential for a public panic, knowing there was hostile aliens that close to earth, Govts have a duty to recognize when they should suppress and withhold news from the public, when its in everyones best interest.
If any of you can find this movie or rent this I highly recommend it. It was awesome.
