I also like the part about how it was too dangerous so it would not have been done for real....
Imagine sitting on the top of a 363 foot high tube filled with 6,030,000 pounds of high explosives, knowing that someone was going to ignite it and the blast would send you into orbit. That takes real bravery. If they are prepared to accept that, then they were probably ready to accept a bit of radiation... The plan for a solar storm was to shelter behind the heat shield of the re-entry module and if a solar storm happened while on the moon, to abort the landing mission and return to the orbiter.
These people were prepared to die, but hoped that they didn't. They had seen friends die in rockets and they went anyway.... and then someone in their nice comfy chair says it must be faked because it was too dangerous..
Show some respect!
Firstly let me say that I have no interest in whether or not man landed on the moon. However, the whole did we didn't we debate is rather complex.
I think the conspiracy theories say that the Van Allen radiation belt would have killed the astronauts or sickened them to the point that they would have a very short life expectancy. Buzz Aldrin says they passed through fast enough for them to be safe.
So the mission would have been to orbit the earth in space but below the Van Allen radiation belt and then land later on, having first faked all the footage on earth somewhere.
Who was panning the camera when they took off from the moon to come home? Was that remotely controlled by NASA? - The "What a ride, what a ride" bit. My sister reckons it was the aliens. Haha.
No doubt that the Apollo missions went to space but the doubt is whether they landed on the moon.
Are the recent Chinese probe photos similar to the Apollo Mission ones? I've read yes and no answers to this question.
Surely someone has photos of the LEM on the moon and all the other paraphenalia that NASA left behind? I've seen some bad photographs showing blobs and tracks on the moon, however.
From what I remember, some of the crosses on the photos were missing, whereas they should have been in front of the subject. What does that mean?
And what about the fact that cosmic rays would make streaks across the exposed plates? Who has these answers?
My friends at school used to debate all this stuff but alas some of it stuck in my head.
