- The Facts:Maurice Chatelain designed and built NASAs Apollo communication systems. He wrote a book detailing his experience with the Apollo programs, and said that all of the missions experienced UFO activity and other strange anomalies.
- Reflect On:It seems that there is an overwhelming amount of witness testimony from insiders, how has this gone ignored for so long, and how come all of these people never get any attention or air-time like the ones who don’t speak about it?
His name is Maurice Chatelain, if you look him up on Google, you may not find much. IMDB states that he is usually identified as a “former NASA Chief of Communications,” especially by UFOlogists, other sources claim he was merely “a low-level engineer who worked for a NASA sub-contractor.”
Obviously, whoever wrote this has poor research skills, one needs to look no further than his book, Our Ancestors Came From Outer Space, to find a description of his life and what he’s experienced. From here, a researcher would go about looking for confirmations outside of his own claims. Chatelain’s details about his career and his designs that he mentions in his book can be found online, we’ll get to that in a bit.
Chatelain was a telecommunication, telemetry and communication electronics specialist, and during his time, perhaps the best in the world at what he did. After he moved to America from Europe decades ago, he spent the next twenty years of his life working for a number of aerospace organizations and industries and was also supported by the United States Navy, the United States Air Force, and NASA. He was even reimbursed by the United States government for the cost of moving his family to the United States.
In his book, he details his various patents and designs for the companies that he worked for, and the organizations his designs attracted. You can view a list of his patents here. As you can see, these are just a few of his many contributions to the field.
In his book, he goes on to explain in great detail how through his work and his connections he was immediately offered the task of designing and building the Apollo communication and data-processing system. He also explains how nobody specified his duties or functions, because no one at that time knew what these systems would be like. There were very few experts in the field.
Chatelain was in charge of all of what he mentions below:
“When the Apollo project started, there was no communication equipment powerful enough or sensitive enough to make voice transmission possible from earth to moon, not to mention trans- mission of television pictures over that distance. Such things had to be invented, perfected, and built. Relay stations had to be in- stalled all around the globe in the Tropics with parabolic dish antennas, some over 200 feet in diameter, in such a way that one or two of them would always be in contact with any Apollo spacecraft orbiting around the moon. All these stations had to be in contact with each other and all of them had to report to the Apollo Space Flight Center in Houston, Texas. All the new equipment, built by some twenty different suppliers from all parts of the United States, had to be co-ordinated and made compatible.”
It’s interesting to think about these things. When contemplating the Apollo missions, it’s not often we think about the tremendous amount of work that went into it by so many men and women. Many of them, like Chatelain, go practically unknown as the focus is always on the astronauts, who themselves have also been quite outspoken and have corroborated Chatelain’s disclosures.
The famous Leonard Nimoy featured Chatelain in one of his documentaries regarding ancient aliens, decades ago. He also verified his background, which has been done by many, by introducing him as a “NASA space scientist who helped man reach the moon.” The film features other prominent minds and academics at the time. Chatelain is also referenced by many prominent UFO researchers.
He was also featured on what appears to be a French talk show, found on youtube.
So what did Chatelain have to say in his book regarding the Apollo missions?
“During these missions several strange things happened. Some still cannot be talked about and some I will mention without revealing my sources of information and with the utmost reserve, because I personally was not there when these incidents allegedly took place. It could be, for example, that both the American and the Russian space programs did bring back discoveries that were not anticipated.”
