Either these bad reviewers are that ignorant or they didn't read the book at all. All you have to see to know that is the 1 star rating. 1 star is just too little to be a serious rating. This shows how badly these people are trying to make you not read it.

People, forget the reviews. Read the book and make up your own opinion. The fact that Amazon lets anyone write a review for any product shows that most reviews here can't be trusted. Anyone can go and say anything they want without even trying/reading a product.

First of all. random noise doesn't take on geometric shapes, they are totally random and are just dots everywhere, not lines with 90 degree angles on the intersections between them. Those lines aren't domes (and Hoagland doesn't say they are) but glass like remains from them caused by millions of years of meteorites bombarding them. The glass is pulverized, with some bigger pieces here and there. The result of that is light scattering everywhere, causing 90 degree angles between lines and rainbow like refractions. You just can't explain the refraction any other way, as refractions can only be caused by glass like structures, so it's definitely glass on the moon. Are they from domes? Who knows. That's what Hoagland thinks they're from and it's the best explanation anyone can come up with..

By the way Hoagland talks about only one dome on the moon, and it is kind of obvious to see. If you were looking for domes in every moon picture of course you're not going to see anything. The rest he talks about aren't domes, but remains of them.

And by the way the pyramids shown in this book don't have random angles, and are just to perfect to be natural.

This will be the 1st time I have sent in a review of anything less than 4 stars. Really I guess if a person is not happy with a book they should indeed post a low star rating along with reasons why they feel a low star rating is deserved. I had listened to Richard Hoagland talk on Art Bell's late night talk show more than once before Art seemed to fade for whatever reason as the show gradually diminished in interest. Hhmm.....? As Mr.Hoagland used to talk on & on a few of us used to feel he was stringing us on & more than once I heard the comment:"Get to the point already" ! I am not here to bad-mouth the book & that 5-star reviewer has a lot of valid points but I've had this book for a number of months, it just doesn't hold my interest, I just can't seem to get into it like many others I have read & enjoyed immensely. The small print size is another issue. Richard is not a "Spring Chicken" & I'm sure he should have realized this topic as well as title would have aroused interest in fellow members of his generation. I pick it up & just as soon put it down. As I'm now retired maybe one day I will add another star & uprate my rating or will indeed like that 5-star reviewer finally gain some meat from this publication, until then I will give the book as we say the benefit of the doubt giving it 3-stars. I sincerely hope some day the book grabs my attention in some manner as it seems a shame after the 5-star review not to try again to read the book. Good Luck to other owners of this book, I hope you're getting more out of it than I, hopefully I will in my "Lingo" gain that meat or knowledge down the road also ? ? ?

An excellent, very scientific treatise on the findings on Mars and on the moon that suggest a very ancient civilation once inhabited both. We're talking eons ago and possibly we're talking about our own ancestors. Hoagland's findings are very revealing and impelling. I highly recommend it to anyone who thinks there were ancient civilizations before those we know about in written history. It is very scientific at times, but is worth it.

Consider the following:

(1) The "Face" on planet Mars is an artificial structure and the "face" is part of a city on Cydonia Planitia (a region of Mars) .
(2) Numerous objects surrounding the landing sites of the Mars Exploratory Rovers (called Spirit and Opportunity that are still exploring Mars) are, in fact, pieces of Martian machinery.
(3) There are large semi-transparent structures constructed of glass on the moon's surface.
(4) The twelve moon-walkers "have had their memories selectively edited" so that they no longer remember seeing evidence of a lunar civilization.
(5) The evidence of a advanced civilization that once existed on the moon and Mars is being suppressed by NASA.

The above five claims are just some of the tamer claims (there are many, some of which become really (I mean really) outlandish) that you will find in this book, authored by Richard Hoagland (perhaps best known as "principal investigator" of the Internet site called the "Enterprise Mission", an organization that examines NASA data for the "possibility of archaeological ruins on Mars and the Moon") and Michael Bara (an aerospace structural engineer).

(For those that don't know, the name "Enterprise" was used for the name of the spaceship or "star ship" in the 1960's science fiction television show "Star Trek." The title of this review is actually popular phrase from that TV show. Montgomery "Scotty" Scott was the Enterprise`s Chief Engineer.)

Each chapter of this book has black and white images or pictures at the end of the chapter. The chapter's narrative indicates when the reader is to look at a particular picture. I counted over 200 captioned images.
