About Lesa Corryn.
Lesa Corryn. She prefers to write character driven stories focusing on the human condition and self discovery. Around the age of 4, she wrote her first book, which was about the different colors of the rainbow. Since then, she has written in her free time, never considerin Lesa Corryn is an American science fiction and fantasy author who is currently working on two series, The Union Stories and The Mortal Gods. Since then, she has written in her free time, never considering her hobby for a full time career.
However, in August of she made the leap toward the profession, publishing her first novel, Secrets of the Horizon, on the Kindle. She was born in Maryland and has spent, to this point, her whole life there. Outside of writing she enjoys video games, anime, drawing, crocheting, baking, spending time with her husband, and lolcats especially her living, breathing lolcats named Cricket and Milo.

A key reason for such an expedition was to demonstrate that the United States could successfully compete with the Soviets in the technology sphere. A different potential military use of the moon was found in a study Document 3 produced by Leonard Reiffel of the Armour Research Institute at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Its title, A Study of Lunar Research Flights , did not reveal the proposed purpose of those flights — to deliver a nuclear device to the surface or to the vicinity of the moon, where it would be detonated.
Also involved in the study effort was the yet-to-become-famous astronomer Carl Sagan.

Many years later, Reiffell said that the "foremost intent [of such a detonation] was to impress the world with the prowess of the United States" and that the Air Force ended the project when its leadership decided the risks exceeded the potential benefits. While NASA's lunar program helped preclude — undoubtedly along with international political considerations — any military service ambitions to establish an outpost on the moon, the military and the Intelligence Community found at least two ways, after , to make use of the moon without leaving Earth.
Both approaches involved signals bounced off the moon, a possibility that had been confirmed by experiment as early as In one case, the U. Carried on-board U. Navy signals intelligence ships, such as the U. In the second case, as explained in two articles Document 11 , Document 14 in the CIA's Studies in Intelligence journal, the United States Intelligence Community was intercepting signals from Soviet anti-ballistic and air defense radar systems after they had exited the Earth's atmosphere and bounced off the moon.
The latter made the first intercept of a signal from the Soviet Hen House radar. Intelligence Community closely monitored the entire Soviet space program, including its lunar component. The declassified documents in this posting concern a number of aspects of that effort — collection through a variety of means, different levels of analysis, and analysis of specific missions.

Two very different collection activities are the subjects of two Studies in Intelligence articles. One, published in Document 6 , examined the interception of Soviet space pictures that had been transmitted from their assorted space programs — including Sputnik, Cosmos, and Lunik — to stations in the Soviet Union. A second, published three years later Document 13 , involved a more unconventional approach - the temporary theft of a Lunik spacecraft that was part of an exhibition of Soviet industrial and economic achievements in an unspecified country.
Early in the U.
It reviewed relevant developments in the Soviet program as well as tried to assess the extent of the Soviet commitment to beating the U. One particular mission — the Luna 9 mission of February — produced a number of different classified publications. Two of those Document 7 , Document 8 followed closely after the mission and were intended to provide reasonably current intelligence. Two articles published in CIA and NSA journals represented retrospective accounts concerning the Luna 9 collection and analysis effort. Another Document 10 contains a broader account of the U. S collection and analysis effort concerning Luna 9 and the years preceding it.
Much of the U. The Soviet lunar program was only one part of the Soviet space program, which involved launch facilities and vehicles, production facilities, earth-orbiting military and civilian spacecraft, and interplanetary probes to Mars and Venus. Intelligence Community, a story which is also partially told by declassified documents.
Classification Not Available. This two-volume study was based on the Army's premise that "there is a requirement for a manned military outpost on the moon" and that outpost was required to develop techniques in moon-based surveillance of the earth and space, in communications relay, and in operations on the lunar surface. Volume I consists of four chapters introduction, technical considerations and plans, management and planning considerations, non-technical supporting considerations and three appendices U.
The second volume, fully focusing on technical considerations, examines the possible outpost, the space transportation system required, communications, the launch site, program logistics, research and development, and program cost and schedule. Document 2 : L. This volume focuses on the possibility of a nuclear detonation on or near the moon's surface.
The introduction notes the possibility that both scientific and military purposes would be advanced — including information on the space environment as well as the capability of nuclear weapons for space warfare. The chapters of volume I focus on optical studies concerning the nuclear device's trip to the moon, the blast, and the thermal conductivity of the lunar surface; seismic observations on the Moon; the lunar radiation environment; the Moon's magnetic field; and other topics.

This volume summarizes a study whose objective was to "determine an economical and sound approach for establishing a manned intelligence observatory on the moon" — with technical requirements being the subject of Volume II. It delineates a six-phase effort beginning with lunar probes in late and progressing through lunar orbits, a soft lunar landing, lunar landing and return, manned vehicle development, and concluding with an operational lunar base in June It also states that decisions concerning the types of strategic systems to be placed on the moon including a Lunar Based Earth Bombardment System could be safely deferred for three to four years.
This document identifies the purpose of a Lunar Expedition as being manned exploration of the moon with first landing and return in late It asserts that "this one achievement if accomplished before the USSR, will serve to demonstrate conclusively that this nation possesses the capability to win future competition in technology. The summary to this estimate notes the uncertainty about Soviet intentions with regard to a moon landing: while repeating the Office of National Estimate's previous view that the odds were better than even that the Soviets would seek to beat the U.
Document 6 : Henry G. One component of the U. Intelligence Community's effort in gathering intelligence on the Soviet space program was intercepting the signals, including video, from Soviet spacecraft. This article reports on the efforts and results with regard to a variety of categories of Soviet spacecraft operations - Sputnik, Cosmos, and Lunik. Included is a discussion of the efforts with regard to Lunik III's video of the lunar surface. Top Secret.
This heavily redacted article, which appeared in a journal of the CIA's Directorate of Science and Technology, focuses on the Soviet Luna 9 mission — which concluded with the first soft landing on the moon and the transmission of images of the lunar surface. Portions of the article cover the configuration of the Luna 9 spacecraft, its missions, and the implications of radiation measurements on the Moon for human safety. The analysis focused on the spacecraft's photographic system, the spacecraft, and identifying new information on the lunar surface.
This extract titled "Man on the Moon - A National Objective" notes that the Air Force was concerned over "the apparent inadequacy of our current National Space Program" and reports that the "Air Force said that long-time studies showed convincingly that an orderly and phased lunar expedition culminating in a landing and return was perfectly feasible. This article also concerns the Luna 9 mission, examined more narrowly in earlier reports Document 7 , Document 8. Its purpose is "to tell the story of how intelligence kept track of that effort through the collection and analysis of telemetric and other information.
