More About the Author
In 2012, Mike published Ancient Aliens on the Moon from Adventures Unlimited Press, a new in-depth study of artificial structures on the Moon and the secrets it has held for millions of years. In 2013, Mike returned with Ancient Aliens on Mars from Adventures Unlimited Press which examines the hidden history of Mars and the vast, ancient civilization which once flourished there. In 2014, he published his 5th book, Ancient Aliens on Mars II, also for Adventures Unlimited Press. In 2015, he will publish a new book for Adventures Unlimited Press, Ancient Aliens and Secret Societies, which will reveal the link between fraternal organizations like the Freemasons and the Ancient Alien presence on Earth.
Mike has made numerous public appearances lecturing on the subjects of space science, NASA, physics, UFOs and the link between science and spirit, and has been a featured guest on radio programs like Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. He is a regular contributor to the television programs Ancient Aliens (over 25 appearances) and America's Book of Secrets, both of which continue to show in heavy rotation on the History Channel and History's H2 Networks. He is also slated to be an on-screen contributor for the second season of History's newest UFO show, Hangar 1.
Mike has recently starred in an alien investigation reality show for the Discovery networks called "Uncovering Aliens." So far, Uncovering Aliens has been shown on the Science channel, Animal Planet, American Heroes and Destination America networks, and is being show extensively in Europe and South America.
Most recently Mike appeared on NBC/Universal's SyFy Network on the special Aliens on the Moon: The Truth Revealed, alongside NASA astronaut and American hero Buzz Aldrin. The show was based primarily on his 2012 book Ancient Aliens on the Moon.

Book Review by Dr. Ali Fant, WB5WAF, 12DE2007
This review is from the perspective of a former NASA Manned Spaceflight Controller, so it is more technical than expository. I first encountered Hoagland's claims through the NASA Technical Alert Briefing viewed by many controllers at the Johnson Space Center in 1989-90, found his claims creditable, and then discovered the briefing tape "disappeared" from the closed JSC Technical Library - from both the open card catalog and the closed shelf listing catalog. As a former university library page, I was shocked to find all references to the briefing tape we controllers viewed were gone two years later. When I began investigating the matter, I was told in no uncertain terms to cease any search for the missing library records.
Key Findings from Dark Mission:
1. NASA is a defense agency of the US Government per the original agency charter.
2. NASA withholds data of non-human intelligence for the good of human society per "Brookings."
3. Brookings Institution advised US in 1959 report "Proposed Studies on the Implications of Peaceful Space Activities for Human Affairs" to beware social-economic chaos resulting from alien artifacts found on the Moon or Mars as the 1938 "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast traumatized America.
4. Arthur C. Clarke based the 1968 novel/film "2001: A Space Odyssey" on the Brookings Report.
5. According to Clarke's 1968 Playboy Magazine interview, Stanley Kubrick quoted from Brookings in the film.Read more ›
I've been interested in Richard Hoagland's work for a number of years, since he took on the cause of the "Face on Mars" and I've enjoyed exploring his website (enterprisemission.com), with its fascinating theory of hyperdimensional physics and his evidence that there are ruins of a civilization in the Cydonia region of Mars. Hoagland may sound like a nut but he puts forth an interesting and at times, convincing, case. Along with colleague Mike Bara, he has finally put it all together in this book, which persuasively argues that NASA is not quite what it seems to be. The book is liberally illustrated, with NASA's own photos along with others.
Let's get right to what Hoagland alleges in this book. While he's best known for his theories about Mars, Hoagland also tackles NASA's missions to the moon. He claims that the astronauts found ruins on the moon, specifically evidence of domes that once covered large portions of the surface. He backs this up with photos showing strange lines and markings in the sky over portions of the moon. Some of these photos come from a former NASA employee, Ken Johnston, who had worked at NASA as a test pilot and later was in charge of cataloging and storing photos from the moon flights. Johnston was shocked to be told one day by his superiors to destroy "all the copies of the original lunar photography" from the Apollo program. Instead, Johnston kept a set of the photos. He later contacted Hoagland and showed him the prints (mostly taken by the astronauts with a Hasselblad camera).Read more ›
