It's great that over 400,000 people involved in Apollo have been able to keep it secret this long :lol:

I bet the cats believe a super secret moon base was set up under the ground to spy on us all! :shock:

the reason that people may still belive this is because it's not as crazy as some of the other theories , it is completely wrong and has no evidense but compared to some of the other conspiracy theories they get much stupider

Phff... 400,000 pales in comparison to the amount of biologists keeping their secret. :)

This is fantastic! I've worked for NASA and ESA for the last 10 years. If you don't mind, I intend to share this with some of my colleagues.

You are assuming that I posted content on the internet which was my own. Don't.

Share it with whomever you please. :D

On first glance yes. Certainly the governments were under alot of pressure during the Cold war.
But when you start to think about the vastness of the whole Apollo project and how difficult it would be to keep such a secret hidden, plus all the video and photographic evidence, well I'd call it one of the craziest.

Can`t wait for when NASA returns with the Altair.

I wonder if they will get images of the Original landing site?

Post Re: In Respose to the Moon Hoaxers

The Lunar Lander take-off from the Moon's surface (filmed by a tripod-mounted small tracking videocam left on the Moon) demonstrates:

1) TOTAL VACUUM - torn pieces of Astrafoil fly away at exhaust velocity speeds without slowing. Dust does the same without forming "clouds". The whole process is silent, even from within the cabin. The only noise would have been that which was mechanically conducted from the motor mounting to the cabin floor.

2) VERY LOW GRAVITY - the trajectories of foil and dust are nearly straight-line. Almost no material strikes the surface within the frame. This would not happen on Earth.

If one were to argue that it could have been a visual simulation carried out by image-processing labs (in the manner of Kubrick's "2001") then one wouldn't know the history very well.

Neither the hardware nor the software for that computer synthesis existed at that time. Science Fiction films "pasted up" imagery and certainly couldn't handle complex interactive physical dynamics. Also SF films are famous for their failure to understand physics - a tradition continued to the present day. NO-ONE in the film industry could have predicted and synthesized this take-off.

Another way of putting this is that the cheapest way of obtaining such a convincing image would have been to build Saturn-Apollo - and fly it to the Moon.

What's funny is that anybody with a sufficiently powered laser can verify that we put a reflector on the moon's surface.

Didn't anyone tell you? It was obviously launched there by a satellite for the exact reason that anyone with a laser could then "verify" we put one there... :lol:

Post Re: In Respose to the Moon Hoaxers

If you persist in arguing with a moon hoaxer, you will eventually reach a point where the conspiracy theory involves an incredibly elaborate system of remote-controlled spaceships which essentially perform every single operation necessary to to take three astronauts to the moon and bring them home safely. But of course there couldn't have been any astronauts actually in the spacecrafts piloting them. That would just be silly.
