Facts surrounding the Apollo missions.
FACT: Pro Apollo Nutters persistently state there are no scientists in the world who refute the Apollo Moon landings. That is complete and utter balderdash, (which is to be expected of PAN's), because there are more scientists who support the hoax theory, than those who refute it. To start off with here is a list of scientists who support the Moon landing as being genuine. Prof. Michael Brant Shermer, American. Prof. Steven I. Dutch, American. Prof. Brian Cox, British. Prof. Harald Lesch, German. A grand total of 4.
Now here is a list of scientists who support the Moon landing as a hoax. Prof. Lawrence S. Pinsky, American. Prof. James M. McCanney, American. Prof. Luke Sargent, American. Prof. André Balogh, British. Prof. Colin Rourke, British. Prof. Krassimir Ivanov Ivandjiiski, Russian. Prof. Takahiko Soejima, Japanese. Prof. Li Zifeng, Chinese. Prof. Federico Martín Maglio, Argentinian. That makes a grand total of 9. So the Moon hoax supporters are way out in front on 69% with Moon landing supporters way behind on 31%.
FACT: The current Airfix plastic kit model of the Saturn V rocket, has no mention whatsoever on the box that Apollo went to the Moon, in fact the word "Moon" does not appear anywhere on the box. It merely states that the Saturn V launched the Apollo capsule into space, (low earth orbit, which is correct). Evidently Airfix realize that Apollo did not go to the Moon, otherwise there would be a reference to it somewhere on the box containing the model. As many would say "The truth is as plastic as the model".
FACT: Knight Newspapers, (one of the two groups that later merged to form Knight-Ridder Inc.) polled 1,721 US residents one year after the first (fake) Moon landing. It found that more than 30% of respondents were suspicious of NASA's trips to the Moon. Author: So what is the percentage over 44 years later?
FACT: The fake Apollo videos and still footage photos show a very dry dusty surface many inches deep. If there is no wind on the Moon, (apart from the wind which constantly blew the flag), then why is there no dust on top of the rocks and boulders? There should be if there is no wind to blow away the dust.
FACT: Despite numerous videos being taken on the alleged 17th mission, (fake of course), not one of those movies show Schmitt at "Tracy's Rock", and yet the still photo is the most popular of the whole mission. Did Cernan decide not to use the movie camera at "Tracy's Rock", or is this yet another NASA blunder they overlooked. Yes you've guessed right it is the latter of the two.
FACT: Despite numerous videos being taken on the Moon's surface, not one of them contains any frames showing planet Earth in the void of space. I would think that is a very poor planning on the part of the astronauts, although we already know why this is so.
FACT: Neil Armstrong suffered with mental illness in his later years. A direct result of him putting his name forward as the foundation stone for the biggest lie in history. OR it could be that he became paranoid by the overwhelming number of web sites, exposing him as a liar, and why was he buried at sea after his death?
FACT: Rumor has it that Apollo 12 astronaut Pete Conrad was going public about the fake Moon landings on the 30th anniversary back in July 1999. He was killed in a motorcycle accident one week before the 30th anniversary.
FACT: It takes the space shuttle 66 hours to reach the International Space Station which is a mere 200 miles above Earth. NASA claim Apollo 13 was 55 hours into its duration from lift off when it encountered a problem at a distance of 200,000 miles from Earth. Sheesh.
FACT: In 1998, after looking at the NASASCAM webpage, world celebrity Uri Geller said that NASA's Apollo Moon pictures have been crudely faked, and asks WHY? Uri however, is friendly with Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, so we may ask WHY does he not ask Mitchell himself why the pictures were faked?
FACT: President Lyndon Johnson made certain Apollo files classified, with a declassification date of 2026. This is so those involved in the Apollo scam would be long dead and gone, and no one alive to blame. One need not wait 13 years for the truth behind Apollo, as the truth is already well known.
FACT: In the early 60s NASA/CIA officials, realizing that a manned Moon landing was totally impossible before 1970, met in secret behind closed doors. It was at that meeting they agreed upon a decision to fake Apollo 11, in the hope they would get to the Moon later on, and then substitute the earlier faked pictures with genuine Moon pictures. The reality is they never succeeded with any mission.
FACT: Arthur C. Clarke referred to Apollo 11 as a "Hole in History". Historian A.J.P. Taylor referred to it as "The biggest nonevent of his lifetime".
FACT: NASA had not perfected the lunar landing craft in time for Apollo 11. In 2013 they are still trying to get a rocket to land and take off again, over 44 years after Apollo was supposed to have done just that.
FACT: Film footage taken inside the capsule of ALL Apollo missions, shows a light blue haze, and curvature of Earth through capsule window, when they were supposedly half way to the Moon, and in the blackness of space. This proves that capsule was only in Earth orbit.
FACT: Moon pictures on NASA's web sites are fake, with backdrop scenes pasted. The pictures reveal a black line penciled in where background meets daylight sky, which was blacked out completely.
FACT: The LM used on latter missions, was the same spec as the first mission, IE, no modifications. It would have therefore been impossible to carry the rover vehicle to the Moon in the same confined LM, even if it collapsed into a more compact form.
FACT: The lunar rover had inflatable tires which would have exploded if pre-inflated, and there was no air on the Moon to inflate them. Pro Apollo Nutters claim the rover had solid wire mesh tires. Yes the rover in the museum had these fitted in the mid 70s when they realized pneumatic tires could not have functioned on the Moon. NASA have had over 44 years in which to clear up the plainly obvious mistakes within the Apollo program. Each time someone brings up a query NASA correct it and say nothing, ie, they cannot say why the anomaly was there in the first place. Anyway I have pictures of the rover supposedly on the Moon and it has the SAME tires AND tire valves as the one they used at KSC. In other words it is the SAME one. Early close up pictures of the rover on Internet have CHANGED since the blunder was exposed on this web site.
FACT: It would have been impossible to have a water cooled space suit on the Moon, when outside temperature was already at boiling point of water, there would be nowhere for the heat to dissipate.
FACT: The LM was suspended from a huge traverse crane based at Langley Research Center, Hampton, Virginia, and was gently lowered at the same time it traversed over a mock Moon surface created beneath it. Check picture on REALITY site, and Channel 4 video "As it Happened" .
FACT: Trainee astronauts were also suspended from this huge traverse crane in a horizontal position to simulate reduced gravity. Check picture on APOLLO REALITY site with the NASA web site picture of Harrison Schmitt tripping up. The unusual high backward leg swing is identical in both pictures.
FACT: Film footage allegedly taken by Apollo 8 as it supposedly circled the Moon, is the SAME film used for the Apollo 11 mission, except that film is reversed and run backwards, look for "tadpole like" mountain range. What NASA did was to film the mock lunar surface at LRC, traveling in one direction, then reverse camera, and film surface traveling in opposite direction, as shown in videos.
FACT: Film footage showing Apollo missions allegedly circling the Moon, was taken by a rail mounted camera which slowly moved toward a rotating plaster paris model of the Moon.
FACT: James Lovell was reading from a prewritten script in the simulator when he did the voice over for the above film, and referred to the Moon as being "essentially gray, no color, looks like plaster of paris". It was indeed plaster of paris he was referring to, hence the smirk on face of Michael Collins after his remark.
FACT: Anyone who believes the Moon landings must be "essentially green".
FACT: Michael J. Tuttle who composed the fake Moon pictures, used mountain background scenes from the astronaut training sessions in Iceland, and other places, to paste on the genuine simulation pictures. He also digitally composed the 360 degree panoramic shots of fake Moon landing sites for use by NASA. His URL speaks for itself. The majority of NASA's fake Moon landing pictures were taken/composed in the mid 90s, AND NOT in the late 60s as many are led to believe. This was because suspicion was aroused at the time regarding the limited number of photos available. NASA had to do something rapidly because of the onset of the Internet. Problem is they faked too many photographs, which did not fit in with time frame spent on Moon.
FACT: The Saturn V rocket had shed 97% of its weight upon reaching Earth orbit. The remaining 3% was the space capsule placed in Earth orbit.
FACT: Earth is 250,000 miles from the Moon, yet reflected sunlight from its surface is strong enough to illuminate the darkness on planet Earth. Anyone hovering above surface of Moon would be blinded by the high intensity light reflected back.
FACT: In the mid 60s, Alan Shepherd was removed from ALL space missions due to vertigo and menieres disease. No one in such a poor state of health would be assigned to such a dangerous and complex mission in space. He was not even on the Apollo 14 mission, which in itself was only in Earth orbit.
FACT: Alleged Moon rock is basalt rock found here on Earth, (or as the Dutch found out, petrified wood). NASA made it radioactive by "baking it" in a radiation oven. If it is genuine Moon rock, then it was brought back by a scoop and return probe. NASA were in fact manufacturing fake Moon rock in the mid 1960s.
FACT: The monitored radio/data signals were either transmitted from Earth and reflected back by bouncing the signal off the Moon, or were transmitted via a leased channel. If such a valuable source of monitoring equipment was left on Moon, then it would be in use today, and not shut down in the 70s.
FACT: In a TV interview with journalist Sheena McDonald back in 1994, the NASA Administrator, Dan Goldin, (alias Dan Dare), openly admitted that mankind cannot venture beyond Earth orbit, until they can overcome the dangers of cosmic radiation. He managed to say this without any mention of the Apollo missions 26 years before, which supposedly went 250,000 miles outside Earth orbit.
FACT: Neil Armstrong had NO mementos or photographs whatsoever from his alleged Moon mission, however he had plenty from his test pilot days. There are no photographs of Armstrong supposedly on the Moon, because Armstrong, knowing the saga was fake, refused NASA permission.
FACT: In 1969 computer chips had not been invented. The maximum computer memory was 256k, and this was housed in a large air conditioned building. In 2013 a top of the range computer requires at least 64 Mb of memory to run a simulated Moon landing, and that does not include the memory required to take off again once landed. The computer on board Apollo 11 had 32k memory.
FACT: When Apollo astronauts were not in space, they were manning mission control communication for other Apollo missions, this was to limit the number of persons in the know. There were in fact two communication links to every Apollo mission. First was launch control who dealt with communication at lift off, and reentry, however once in Earth orbit communication was handed over to the limited few astronauts manning mission control. Check it yourself on film coverage released at the time. Collins, Duke, Aldrin, Young, Borman, Armstrong, Lovell, Shepherd, Schmitt, Cernan etc, are all there on various missions. Lovell himself admitted that there were two communication links to the astronauts.
FACT: It would have been impossible for the astronauts to get from the Lunar Module to the conical space capsule, (Command Module), as shown in drawings, as this section was occupied by the 3 large reentry parachutes, which ejected from the conical end.
FACT: In 2013 NASA does not have the technology to land men on the Moon, and return them safely. It may be possible in the future, but such a feat is still many, many years away.
FACT: Buzz Aldrin believes he has suffered brain damage as a result of his trip to the Moon. He knows darned well that he never went anywhere near the Moon, and so could not have suffered brain damage in the way he alleges. Aldrin was the only Apollo astronaut who went public, and talked about the Moon landings during the 70s and 80s. The guilt, remorse, and stumbling over awkward questions put to him by the media, have put an intolerable strain on him. His psychological damage is the result of keeping it bottled up for over 44 years, instead of getting it off his mind. In Aldrin's book "Return to Earth", he makes a remark that all 6 of them have been made to look fools. Make of this what you will.
FACT: Deadly radiation in space beyond the magnetosphere, make human space travel impossible. Scientists have not yet found a way to protect astronauts from this deadly radiation.
APOLLO Q & A
Your feedback questions answered.
Question: What about Moon rock brought back by astronauts, its proof the landings took place?
Answer: No it is not, and this is the most common tactic used by NASA and PAN's, but proves nothing. NASA were manufacturing simulated Moon rock, long before the Apollo missions, this is proven in an abstract published in 1966, 3 years before Apollo 11. This simulated Moon rock is reconstructed from basalt, and meteorite samples discovered in Antarctica. It is simulated Moon rock that is dispatched to universities around the globe as being the real thing. These simulated Moon rocks are, of course, totally different to any rocks found on Earth, and they were meant to be that way. This is why geologists claim they cannot be found any where else on Earth. No of course not, because they are manufactured by NASA to be totally different to Earth borne rocks. NASA manufacture the simulated Moon rock and Moon dust so cheaply they do not even charge for it, other than transportation costs.
Looks as though NASA have shot themselves in the foot with this mid 1960s picture.
Question: If NASA faked the Moon missions, why fake six, when they only needed to fake it once?
Answer: If NASA had just done one (fake) Moon landing, it certainly would have looked suspicious. NASA needed to convince the media that they could get to the Moon and back no problem, and so faked another six Moon missions, with different astronauts on each mission to achieve their goal. Another reason is because if NASA had faked just one mission, they realized that if the lie ever became exposed, (which it has), then all the shame and guilt would have rested solely on Armstrong and Aldrin. By involving many more astronauts in the deceit, it enabled those astronauts to share the guilt evenly. Incidentally many already accuse Armstrong of lies and deceit, and yet he was not the first to scam the media, as there were six others before him. The first astronauts to deceive the public were Borman, Lovell and Anders in Apollo 8, followed by Cernan, Young and Stafford in Apollo 10. Neither of these missions went anywhere near the Moon as they describe. Apollo 9 was in Earth orbit, and its a pity that NASA don't own up to the fact that all other Apollo missions were only in Earth orbit.
Question: Why don't they point the Hubbell telescope at Moon to view the artifacts left behind?
Answer: Hubbell is owned and operated by NASA, the ones responsible for faking in the first place, so there is no chance there. In order to cover up for NASA, their paid informers, (PAN's like Phil Plait and Jay Windley), claim that the Hubbell cannot resolve down to view the landing sites, but how much resolution do they need? Hubbell will in fact resolve down to 50 meters on the Moon's surface, which is more than enough to view the artifacts supposedly left behind. NASA do in fact have very high resolution pictures of the Moon, but do not inform the media because the first thing people would ask is to see the artifacts left behind from Apollo, and, as to be expected there is nothing there.
Question: What about the hammer and feather experiment, how could they achieve that in Earths gravity?
Answer: This is another ridiculous claim made by PAN's, but again, proves nothing. The film is shot in poor lighting, as well as being a very poor quality black and white fuzzy film, and as the experiment is performed so far away from the camera, it can easily be fabricated. If you examine the footage carefully, you will see the fine wire, (possibly thin nylon fishing line), recoil back, so this proves the object was lowered by line. I would like to point out that magicians like David Copperfield have performed far greater feats, (optical illusions), within a few feet of a live audience. One of his stunts involved himself being cut in half by a rotating saw blade, then the two sections of his body were moved to opposite ends of the stage. If PAN's believe the hammer and feather experiment was real, do they also believe that David Copperfield was sliced in two by a rotating saw blade?
Question: Why do prominent astronomers like Sir Bernard Lovell and Sir Patrick Moore support the Moon landings if they were faked?
Answer: Scientists and astronomers around the globe know full well that the Moon missions were faked, but rely on NASA to gain access to the vital data beamed back to Earth from satellites in outer space. They cannot slag off NASA otherwise NASA would deprive them of this essential information, which they so much require.
Question: What about the laser reflector left on the Moon by astronauts, from which they can calculate the Moon's distance from Earth?
Answer: In 1946 scientists in the USA managed to bounce a radio signal off the Moon's surface, and were able to calculate the precise distance of the Moon by the reflected radio signal. In the early 1960s, the scientists realized they could perform the experiment more efficiently, and accurately by using a high powered pulsed laser beam. In this scenario the laser beam is reflected back to Earth in the same way as Sunlight is reflected off the Moon's surface towards Earth. On May 9 1962, (over 7 years BEFORE Apollo 11 was supposed to have landed on the Moon), a high powered pulsed ruby laser was successfully aimed at the Moon, and reflected back off the Moon's surface to provide an accurate measurement of the precise distance from Earth to Moon, without any reflector being on the Moon's surface. There is no laser reflector on the Moon, and never has been. NASA are using the same method today as what they were using back in 1962, albeit with a much more powerful laser. Incidentally NASA plan to use an even higher power laser on Mars to calculate distance. Have astronauts placed a reflector on Mars to bounce the beam back?
Question: Why did the USA fake the Moon landings, was it to "get one up" on the then Soviet Union?
Answer: No they weren't done to fool the Russians, does anyone believe the Russians would be so stupid to fall for a con like that? Russia were more advanced than the USA in space technology back then, and still are today. They knew at the time of Kennedy's speech that it was impossible for manned space travel to the Moon and back. Incidentally the day after the fake Apollo 11 Moon landing, NASA administrator, Thomas Paine, was heard telling Intelligence officer Bob Seaman's that the Chinese were saying the USA faked the mission by bouncing radio communication signals off the Moon. If the Chinese, (who were not into space technology in 1969), knew the landing was fake, do you not think that Russia would know?
NASA was under orders from the CIA to fake the Moon landings as a propaganda tool for US government. The Apollo farce was an extension of the MKULTRA mind control experiments in the 50s and 60s. This is proven by naming the program “Project Apollo”. Further info on this can be found on the APOLLO TRUTH page.
The landings were faked purely and simply to instill pride in the USA, and convince Western civilization that the USA were better in space than the Soviet Union, when in reality they were way behind the Soviets in everything to do with space technology. Because of this, the Western media had totally lost faith in the USA, and the USA could not be seen as the 'weaker link' at such a crucial period in time. There was no SPACE RACE as claimed by NASA, who incidentally coined the phase. Russia had no intention whatsoever of sending men to the Moon because they knew it was impossible.
Question: Was Richard Nixon behind the fake Moon landings?
Answer: Although Nixon was president at the time of the Apollo missions, he was not directly responsible, even though he knew, or should have known, they were fake. The planning and preparation into faking the Moon missions began way back in the early 60s, and hence Lyndon B Johnson was the president with the most inside knowledge of the Project Apollo program. LBJ classified many Apollo documents until 2026.
Question: What about the vast number of people involved in Apollo, wouldn't someone have spoken out?
Answer: Pans claim there were half a million people involved in the Apollo program, but that includes all the humble engineers working on machine parts in many companies around the globe. So if someone is making a part in some engineering factory in Seattle, and his boss tells him it is for the Apollo spacecraft, is that engineer proof the landings took place? No of course it is not proof, and even if that engineer knew they never made it to the Moon, he would still brag to his friends that he made a part that went to the Moon just to make him feel proud in some way or other. Parts for the Apollo program were made at many different factories around the globe. For example the laser reflector supposedly left on the Moon was manufactured in France. NASA collected the unit from the French company, and that was the last they saw of it. It's probably stashed away in some archive at Langley, but one things for certain it's not on the Moon. Are those French engineers proof they landed on the Moon? No of course not, as very few, (probably less than 200 people), were actually involved in bringing the whole lot together, so as to minimize what was actually taking place. No need for any of them to speak out because (A) They are 100% patriotic to the USA, and would say nothing that would go against America, even if it were true. (B) They do not need millions of dollars to safeguard their future, as they have already received substantial amounts from NASA just to "keep mum". Read comments from people who worked on the Apollo program in the APOLLO FEEDBACK section.
Question: Why didn't Russia cry foul over the fake Moon missions?
Answer: Yet another tactic used by PAN's that the landings were genuine. However they are basing this fact on how Russia poked fun at failures within the USA space industry in the early 60s, during the Kennedy/Kruschev period. Kruschev was always poking fun at their failures, and referred to Alan Shepard's 15 minute space flight as a mere 'flea jump' to what they (Russia) had done. However when Kruschev stepped down in 1964, the new Soviet leader, Brezhnev, never poked fun at the USA, and Russia just got on with their own business. What many people don't know however is that the Moon landing was portrayed as being fake in both Russian newspapers, and many other newspapers around the globe at the time, however most of these stories were suppressed from the Western media. Remember Russia was a very secretive country back in 1969. Russia could have blabbed to the world that the Moon landings were fake, and probably would have done if Kruschev were in power, however Western countries would simply say they were jealous because the USA had beaten them to it. Russia however had a far better plan in mind, and in order to understand how it would work, one needs to understand the way in which Communist ideology worked back in the 1960s. At that time the Soviet Union assumed Communism would go on forever, and they never anticipated that it would collapse 20 years later, after all it had been going for over 50 years. Their answer to NASA's fake Moon missions was to sit back and say nothing, safe in the knowledge that in the not too distant future, Western civilization would eventually "wake up", (although PAN's appear to remain in a deep coma), and discover that the USA government had lied to them. This would then turn many people against the USA government as they, (the Western media), would feel cheated, made to look fools, and would no longer be able to trust them. This is exactly what the then Soviet Union expected to happen, ie, for the Western media to turn against an authority, that they could no longer trust. If Russia were still a Communist state, its leaders would be laughing their socks off now at the way the USA government was being slagged off by its own citizens. You only have to look at comments on the APOLLO FEEDBACK page to realize how many are turning against the USA government for spreading untrue propaganda, when in reality it was 100% fake.
