NASA is an independent agency of the United States Federal Government, responsible for space surveillance as a national aeronautics security agency.
According to NASA: “Apollo 8 and later missions could not make observations about the Moon’s space environment or complex geology, a gap that LRO and missions like Clementine, LADEE, GRAIL, ARTEMIS and M3 have been able to fill... None of the Apollo missions observed the Moon’s poles, areas that have prompted a growing curiosity among lunar scientists.”—NASA, Part 5: Apollo 8 and Beyond - The Next Epoch

A very very very brief history...
In May 1958, Armour Research Foundation supported theoretical studies regarding the back side of the Moon, at the behest of the Air Force Special Weapons Center based out of Kirtland AFB, New Mexico, USA.
Leonard Reiffel, a physicist of Illinois Institute of Technology, was responsible for the project. Reiffel’s history involved collaborating with German scientists recruited in USA under Operation Paperclip, working on an early prototype for a railgun.
A rumor circulated in newspapers that the Soviet Union was planning to detonate a hydrogen bomb on the Moon. This helped to create a narrative for support of the American lunar research project. The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) was then dissolved on October 1, 1958 and became National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
Leonard Reiffel served as a consultant for NASA. On 19 June 1959, Reiffel submitted his report to Kirtland AFB, New Mexico, on Lunar research flights. He then became deputy director  of the Apollo project from 1965–1969.
Back side of the Moon
- “He pulled out one of these mosaics, and showed this base which had geometric shapes – there were towers, there were spherical buildings, there were very tall towers and things that looked somewhat like radar dishes, but they were very large structures.”
Karl Wolfe had given his testimony at the 2001 Disclosure Project event held at the National Press Club in Washington DC, organized by Steven Greer. Wolfe’s disclosures in the UFO community cost him his life on October 17, 2018.
Apollo 8 Command Module Pilot Jim Lovell: “Please be informed, there is a Santa Claus.”

They weren’t just saying Merry Christmas in December.
Keep this in mind, Wolfe was a former Air Force sergeant in the 1960s, under the Tactical Air Command at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia. “Spherical buildings... that looked somewhat like radar dishes” is not what is really on the Moon. Wolfe was bound by oath to the United States, not to reveal umbra class information.
Houston/NASA/US gov was looking for something very specific on the back side of the Moon, the side in which they prefer calling the “far side”. Apollo 7 sends the first US crew into space in 1968. It’s success pushes off Apollo 8 just two months later.

“Historians still debate how and why the pioneering Soviet space program suddenly fell behind in the race to the Moon and how far behind it had been at the moment when Armstrong and Aldrin set foot on another world.” reports Popular Mechanics. They continue, “Even half a century after the events, we're still learning pieces of the extensive and multi-faceted Soviet effort to put humans on the Moon.”
From 1963, Soviet engineers just completed an analysis of 26 different scenarios for the lunar expedition and were only able to narrow them down to four diverse architectures, which still needed more detailed studies before the final plan could be picked. There were internal rivalries between leaders of the Soviet space program and the Soviet military, in large, held the purse strings of the rocket industry.
Various disputes on the use of propellant and design of the future moon rocket and other strategic disagreements sparked within the industry, complicating and delaying the Soviet lunar program. By 1964, Soviet engineers got the necessary political go-ahead to join the moon race. But in the next four years, a myriad of technical problems and flaws in flight tests kept widening the gap between the Soviets and its rival—Apollo.
1968—October 11, NASA sends the first US crew into space on Apollo 7. Two months later, NASA launches Apollo 8 on 21 December 1968. On Christmas Eve, Command Module Pilot, James A. Lovell Jr. identifies the “target” at 104 hours, on the back side of the Moon. Lovell calls it in to Houston Command with “Please be informed, there is a [redacted] . Lovell put emphasis on “is”, meaning Houston/NASA/gov was looking for something that they had already been anticipating. After Lovell gave coordinates and readings to Houston Command, their classified objective was complete. NASA had three midcourse corrections that were scheduled for this mission. Once Lovell called in the objective, the scheduled midcourse corrections were no longer required.’ Had there really been a problem with Lovell’s first midcourse correction (as NASA leads), they would have had to perform per the planned schedule.
Two months later—February 21, 1969—on the Kazakhstan luanch pad, the main propulsion system of the Soviet N1 is a go, the rocket aiming for the Moon. After the first launch attempt, the Soviet N1 rocket failed after one minute and eight seconds in flight due to a “propulsion system failure”.
A disappointed Soviet team pressed ahead with the second N1 launch attempt as soon as possible. The second N1 rocket, designated 5L, reached the pad in the summer of 1969, after Apollo 9 and Apollo 10 had already completed dress rehearsal missions ahead of the actual lunar landing attempt—an American victory loomed— a positive step for Americans who were still suffering the loss of John F. Kennedy some five years prior.
As the sixth Saturn V rocket slated for the Apollo 11 mission at Cape Canaveral, the second Soviet N1 vehicle reached the launch pad. The N1 rocket No. 5L blasted off into the night from July 3 to July 4, 1969.
The official report leads that the Soviet two-man capsule was unmanned. You can believe that if you want to... in a Moon race ready to go on July 4th.
As the N1 climbed to an altitude of about 100 meters, just 10.5 seconds after liftoff, some bright pieces ominously fell off from its tail section. Seemingly froze in mid-air, the rocket started tilting to its side. At the tip of the rocket, the emergency escape engines fired and pulled the two-man capsule into darkness.
With its flight control system paralyzed by an engine explosion, the giant N1 rocket was unable to steer itself downrange and crashed back onto the launch pad with most of its propellant. The massive explosion almost completely wiped out half of the two-pad launch complex, a project that took several years to complete. Some pieces from the rocket were apparently found as far as six miles away. Windows were reported to be blown off in buildings located nearly four miles from the launch pad. “The failure of the second launch sealed the Soviet's fate in the moon race and raised the question if a Soviet cosmonaut would ever walk on the Moon.” reports Popular Mechanics.
July 4, 1969, the Soviets aimed to put cosmonauts on the moon. Historians are still debating how and why Russia never made it, “Even half a century later”, reports Popular Mechanics. Perhaps it takes a rocket scientist to solve it.
Enter the Viet Nam War.
The fine print: And you wonder why they hate conspiracy theories...because more than half of them are true.
Disrespects Queen of the Moon
NASA disrespected Queen of the Moon, 姮娥 (Heng'e, or “Cháng'é”), during the Apollo 11 mission in July 1969. Apollo program ended 3 and half years later in December 1972. NASA’s general programs have declined ever since.
The Americans, in general, have dreaded China ever making it to the Moon. In 2007, China launched its first lunar probe, a robotic spacecraft named Chang'e 1 in the goddess' honour. A second robotic probe, named Chang'e 2, was launched in 2010. A third Chang'e spacecraft, called Chang'e 3, landed on the Moon on 14 December 2013, making China the third country in the world to achieve such a feat after the former Soviet Union and the United States. The lander also delivered the robotic rover Yutu ("Jade Rabbit") to the lunar surface. On 3 January 2019, Chang'e 4 touched down on the far side of the Moon and deployed the Yutu-2 rover.

Hubble’s main mirror had supposedly “been ground incorrectly”. “The optics were corrected to their intended quality” by an NSA servicing mission deployed in 1993. It recieved another servicing mission in 2009.
Hubble’s CPU computer is 20 times faster, with six times more memory, than the DF-224 it replaced. It increases throughput by moving some computing tasks from the ground to the spacecraft and saves money by allowing the use of modern programming languages.
