What Silicon Laude has to do with this sci-fi novel? By my surprise this company has on it's homepage's background photographs that directly link to retiredafb's assertive videos showing both the pseudo-spaceship and the sugestive geological phenomena. It's obvious that silicon Laude is supporting retiredafb's allegations.
They're also sponsoring spaceheroes.org wich are supporting retiredafb's allegations asserting that a undercover lunar mission intituled Apollo 20 took place to specifically study an alien mother spaceship on the Far side of the Moon near Fermi crater. They pretend to gather facts that could proporcionate a prima-facie case for a Spacehero recognition, therefore a Congressional Space Medal of Honor.
Recently, a new site was created intituled Spacheroes.org, showing on it's logotype, a picture of the alleged (one of the) alien spaceship captured on Apollo 20 mission's video. It dedicates to investigate spectacular feats of daring in space and identifying/honoring Space Heroes.
They are investigating William Rutledges's arguments so they can gather material for a prima facie case - if so, formal letters of recommendation for award of the Congressional Space Medal of Honor will be prepared and submitted to the NASA Administrator.
It's possible to buy several articles related to Apollo 20 mission by their homepage. It's also possible see that their arguments are supported on a highly unsustainable basis and not credible sources as also as their assertions or the potential hypothetical stands for a prima facie could not on scientifical stands be interpretated as serious.
Incredibly Silicon Laude is sponsoring them, only damaging their name - if Silicon Laude is real, if any tinny little bit of this case is real - wich I am seriously doubting
Silicon Laude is a privately held, fabless semiconductor company headquartered in Austin, Texas.

I was wondering if Silicon Laude was real, (i'm still - as it sounds too much surrealistic for me) but as I figured on my search I think that that matter is out of question for the moment - still wondering why they don't appear on wikipedia...
And then I've sent a e-mail to the company, to understand and confirm their position erasing the feeling of illusion.
Mr. Jerry D. Harthcock wrote me back:
Dear Mr. Caldeira,
In your email, you assert that the videos are "highly polemical". I presume you mean, that they are highly controversial. Wikipedia defines polemical as: "the practice of disputing or controverting religious, philosophical, or political matters. As such, a polemic text on a topic is often written specifically to dispute or refute a topic that is widely viewed to be beyond reproach."
So, when you use the word, "polemical", I don't really know what you mean, since the videos themselves don't dispute anything, and the mere posting of links to them can not be construed as a practice of disputing, etc. On the contrary, they, like the links on the Silicon Laude website, are merely informative, directing surfers who happen by, to the videos and interview.
Moreover, at the moment, Silicon Laude is a proud sponsor of www.SpaceHeroes.org, whose primary mission is to investigate the substance of the videos, and if appropriate and warranted, submit formal letters of recommendation to the NASA Administrator's office recommending that the crew (if the story is proven to be mostly true) be nominated to receive the Congressional Space Medal of Honor (see Public Law 91-76 and 14 CFR 1221.2).
Thank you for your interest and inquiry.
I respond back to Mr. Harthcock
Greetings Mr. Jerry Harthcock
First of all, thank you for answering my e-mail and so quickly.
I can only give you reason about my wrong grammatical choices. I meant to say the word controversial.
Truly they don't dispute any religious, philosophical, or political matters, and i did not want to say that. As told, my bad choice of words. Thank you for elucidate me, one point for my knowledge and concentration.
But using or not the right words, i think you already answer much more to my basic question - the link between your site and the controversial ideas that are manifestated by videos shown on it.
I presume, but i would like a confirmation, because to presume is similar to have a hypothesis, it´s not a fact, following the logic that your site is sponsoring www.SpaceHeroes.org whose primary mission is to investigate the substance of some videos, that that same videos are the ones linked to your site homepage. So, i deduce that the linked videos that appear on your website homepage are the ones susceptible of being investigated, some of several that gather the conditions or the standars to be analysed. Shortly speaking, they are part of the facts that permit their own revaluation of authenticity. May I ask: Are the linked videos from retiredafb (you tube) shown on your website homepage, considered true or simply controversial? The linked videos shown on your website homepage represent some or all the videos that are going to be investigated by www.SpaceHeroes.org,the site that Silicon Laude sponsers?
Thank you for answering my questions
Pardon me for my ortographical, gramatical and expressive wrong expositions
My Best Regards
José Pedro Gomes
And again i wrote to Mr. Harthcock
Greetings again Mr. Jerry D. Harthcock
As Silicon Laude is a proud sponsor of www.SpaceHeroes.org, whose primary mission is to investigate the substance of the videos to obtain a prima facie case, them i can only give my humble support for a better accurate study - in here you can see my visual interpretations about the videos.
Again, pardon for my awkward linguistics.
Since the begining of the mediatization of retiredafb´s stories, it was intringuing how a person that would want to create an impact and consistent hoax was putting together parts that are so factually hoaxes with parts that have reasonables doubts (they are all proving to be hoaxes). It wasn't logical. But it could feed conspiracy theories, sabotage and diversion stragtegies.
As above, at least one of the videos linked to the pictures on Silicon Laude's homepage is a undenieable and "prima facie", metaphorically speaking, hoax. Silicon Laude is assumebly sponsoring Spaceheroes.org, but Spaceheroes.org don't make any mention (till the momment) to Silicon Laude on their Sponsors applet. How is it that an enterprise like Silicon Laude, links it's credibility to a obvious hoax? What's the point to this position? Marketing, jumping the name of the company? An alliance, but to what criteria if not at least 2 explicit hoaxes? How does a company japardizes it's name with soo aparently impulsive reactions? A mega promotion of something? A SCI-FI introduction? What? Who are their clients?
Who is buying Silicon Laude, or Device Tools's representative products?
Couldn't find any...
