There are numerous accounts of people encountering gargoyle like creatures, although sadly, even though preceded, followed by, or accompanied during that present time - with UFO/UAP activity, most such reports go under-archived, dismissed, or are instead redefined as cryptid encounter cases.The earliest known medieval gargoyles appear on Laon Cathedral (c. 1200–1220).
So it seems these things have been on the minds and souls of men for a long time, and obviously deemed important enough to be carved from stone and applied to the most prestigious buildings...
3 possibilities:If they need spacesuits, how was he able to have sex with the red haired alien? Or was she different from the others?
1) It's possible that even though they are the same race, she might have been genetically tweaked for that exact purpose;
2) They released in the chamber, a mutually neutral composition of gases that satisfy the basic needs for both;
3) She might have taken a pill prior that when broken down releases the necessary chemicals in her bloodstream (the equivalent of our oxygenation);
Greetings NixMoon is densely populated, it has air, water, flora and fauna.
While I'm willing to concede that the environments of many of our Solar system's bodies are not as entirely as harsh as they may be presented, it's not difficult but impossible to fake entirely habitable environments to seem like desolate wastelands or hellholes, especially for solar bodies close to the Earth like the Moon, Mars and Venus (but also those further out), and especially in this day and age, when complete amateurs can buy not only telescopes, but rent even higher tech telescopes from science institutions, help with data processing of various satellites and science banks and servers that deal with space and astronomy etc.
Citizen scientists have not only raised up in numbers (and ranks in academia too) but in the coming decades they will be crucial in detecting things missed by other scientists. This has been the case for many discoveries in the field of astronomy as well as planetary science. If things were as you said they are, many of the amateur observers would flood the science platforms with these findings. Anyone on this forum can check to verify this as being the case, you don't have to actually work in academia.
I do agree on the notion of the secret space program. Another "concession" if you will. I do think we have unacknowledged bases on the Moon and Mars (probably elsewhere too, if it's also true that we have back-engineered alien tech that we now regularly use). If there are bases out there, they are probably mostly, if not entirely, situated underground. Not just because of the lack of conditions, but also to keep the clandestine element alive and afloat.
